Hi ritze, nice job with this app! Here are a few suggestions for your PKGBUILD:

  1. You can remove the line that installs LICENSE, because your license (GPL2) is a common one and is already present in /usr/share/licenses/common. Declaring license=('GPL2') is enough, see here for details:

  2. You should add provides=('pinentry') line. What this will do is it will allow people to completely replace core/pinentry with your package. Currently people have to install both, because for example gnupg depends on pinentry.

After making these changes, remember to increase pkgrel and run makepkg --printsrcinfo > .SRCINFO before committing and pushing this to AUR.

@scampi: Thanks for the information. I updated the package.

You need to update the pkgrel number in .SRCINFO to 2.

ATM you get the following error when installing the package:

ensure package version does not mismatch between .SRCINFO and PKGBUILD

Hi! I just tried installing on a newly setup machine => failed. I needed to install the 'libconfig' package first. Could you add it to the dependencies? Thanks! kmax
