Also, please add bluez-libs as a makedepends and a dependency for bluetooth support as it is needed for bluetooth headset support!

as for starting pulseaudio as a user, it seems one has to enable it with:
systemctl --user enable pulseaudio

not sure it is the normal way to do it though

ok, I got it about the pyqt issue: it is python-pyqt4 that is needed because python 3 is used.

Anyway, dbus doesn't seem to be enabled so it doesn't work :)

nop, sorry, for that last point, that's not the problem: the problem is that when running qpaeq I get the following error even though the needed packages are there:
There was an error importing needed libraries
Make sure you have qt4 and dbus-python installed
The error that occured was:
No module named 'PyQt4'

vnoel commented on 2014-12-13 09:47

and by the way, the dependency for python2-pyqt should be python2-pyqt4 !

It seems pulseaudio from this package is not started as it should at boot, I'm not sure what is the problem, but I wanted to report it here :)

Found a solution to my problems. I added " export MAKEFLAGS="-j1" " before calling make install in the package() function in PKGBUILD - then it worked fine. This might be related to that I have tweaked the /etc/makepkg.conf to support distcc running several threads (though I believe -j2 is the default). Seems like makepkg for this AUR isn't happy with running several threads on make install.

A bit more information on my comment. When I run "make DESTDIR="$pkgdir" install bashcompletiondir=/usr/share/bash-completion/completions" direct from the src folder it installs fine. But running from makepkg I get:

/home/pi/code/pulseaudio-git/src/pulseaudio/src/.libs/ file not recognized: File truncated
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
libtool: install: error: relink `' with the above command before installing it
Makefile:4883: recipe for target 'install-modlibexecLTLIBRARIES' failed

And that seems like the origin of the problem below. Is there a way to force makepkg to only deal with what is in the ./pkg folder and make a package from that?

Hi! I'm having trouble making the package in the last steps of the process. Pulseaudio compiles just fine and makepkg copies files to ./pkg/pulseaudio-git, then it fails with this message:

libtool: install: /usr/bin/install -c .libs/libpulsecore-5.99.soT /home/pi/code/pulseaudio-git/pkg/pulseaudio-git/usr/lib/

Any ideas?

It didn't install for me because something is wrong with PKGBUILD file. pulseaudio-zsh-completion.zsh doesn't exist.

the last line of the function "package()" should be:

install -Dm644 shell-completion/zsh/_pulseaudio "$pkgdir/usr/share/zsh/site-functions/_pulseaudio"
