# There are always lots of systenm log with journalctl:
Invalid Context= "Mimetypes" line for icon theme: "/usr/share/icons/Paper/scalable/mimetypes/"
Invalid Context= "Mimetypes" line for icon theme: "/usr/share/icons/Paper/512x512@2x/mimetypes/"
Invalid Context= "Apps" line for icon theme: "/usr/share/icons/Paper/512x512@2x/apps/"

# modify following things to fix it:
sudo vim /usr/share/icons/Paper/index.theme
# find "Context=Mimetypes" change to uppercase "Context=MimeTypes"
# find "Context=Apps" change to "Context=Applications"
# cli check
sed -n '/Context=Mimetypes/p' /usr/share/icons/Paper/index.theme
sed -n '/Context=Apps/p' /usr/share/icons/Paper/index.theme
# cli change
sudo sed -i 's/Context=Mimetypes/Context=MimeTypes/g' /usr/share/icons/Paper/index.theme
sudo sed -i 's/Context=Apps/Context=Applications/g' /usr/share/icons/Paper/index.theme

I've provided no a patch for autogen. Please report if there are any problems solved.

gaelic commented on 2016-05-28 09:07


can you please provide your automake version:

automake --version

and also ensure you're using automake in /usr/bin if you have other (older) versions installed:

which automake

should give you

I met the same error when run ./ , and what's more
when I clone the official repository from github and then run ./
It complains the same error, err message is shown below:
---snip--- error: possibly undefined macro: AM_SILENT_RULES
If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
See the Autoconf documentation.
autoreconf: /usr/bin/autoconf failed with exit status: 1

With me it is normal. I update the package every day and never got any problems.

gaelic commented on 2016-05-20 14:14

Just a short question:

Is anyone else having trouble installing this package (e.g. automake failure), or problems related to the versioning.

Thanks in advance.

The versioning scheme is not working for me. For example, I have paper-icon-theme-git-6029377-1 installed but the newer version number is paper-icon-theme-git 45207e8-1 so yaourt thinks this is already updated. paper-gtk-theme-git works though. Maybe you can take a look of that one and do the same thing here?

pkgver() {
cd "${srcdir}/${_pkgname}"
echo $(git rev-list --count HEAD).$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)

Instead of manually copying and removing invalid files, the automake stuff could be used.

Build function which will make a call to ./autogen (no additional options like --prefix needed, as it defaults to /usr) and in the package function just a call to make DESTDIR=$pkgdir install.

What definitively should be changed is the arch array. As this package doesn't contain any ELF compiled files.
And a question. Is librsvg really needed as dep?

As far as I know this is intended:

just run yaourt without --devel just with --aur and you're fine. Just use --devel if you really want to update -git or -svn etc packages.

keevitaja commented on 2016-02-08 07:49

Each time i run yaourt -Suya --devel this package gets updated. Can it be fixed?
