Both this package and https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/prey/ (the fps) install themselves as /usr/bin/prey. One of you two should rename to avoid the unnecessary conflict, and technically prey the game came first (2008 vs 2009).

I get the following errors:

* sha256sums_x86_64 should be an array
* sha256sums_i686 should be an array

I guess this is a change of pacman 5.0?

In the post_install script (prey-node-client.install) you run:
/opt/prey-node-client/bin/prey config hooks post_install >/dev/null

I don't know why you had to do by yourself.

Isn't the 'prey-agent.service' unit file missing? I can't seem to find it.

EDIT: nevermind, apparently I had to run `sudo prey config hooks post_install` in order to install the unit file.

The package fails to build if the build dir is set to /tmp/makepkg.

It should be enough to switch from ../../prey-node-client.patch to "${srcdir}/prey-node-client.patch", when applying the patch at line 31.

thanks ThecaTTony :)

- for python2 I added a message in the post_install script
- i added to the patch file the NetworkManager issue

Prey needs python2, pygtk (messages and lock screen), NetworkManager (wifi-autoconnect) and a couple of hooks to run as expected.

1- Its python2 so its needs this workaraund:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Python#Dealing_with_version_problem_in_build_scripts
(/opt/prey-node-client/*)

2- For restart NetworkManager daemon prey executes:
"service NetworkManager restart"
The script /usr/local/bin/service fix this:
#!/bin/bash
systemctl $2 $1

3- ssh-agent dont work on my system to get logged user's. Other programs that provide that are: gnome-keyring-daemon (gnome-keyring) and kde-authentication-agent (maybe polkit-kde?)

Cannot build the package. Error at line 31: ../../prey-node-client.patch: No such file or directory.

thanks olantwin, i was having trouble getting this configured until I installed lsb-release. +1 that it should be added as a dependency and/or optional

xpt commented on 2015-04-28 19:24

ok, i added wireless_tools as a dependency
