@nvllsvm Recently, starting scrcpy via terminal shows:

INFO: scrcpy 1.12.1 /usr/share/scrcpy/scrcpy-server: 1 file pushed, 0 skipped. 2.0 MB/s (26202 bytes in 0.013s) INFO: Initial texture: 1440x2880

It then opens a new terminal window, but does not mirror the smartphone screen. Any ideas for a fix? Thanks in advance.

Small question. Can the sourcelink for scrcpy be prepended with ${pkgname}-${pkgver}.tar.gz::? Makes life easier for people which set SRCDEST in makepkg.conf

@Gilrain I actually made some dummy package for Flutter SDK long time ago but not for Android SDK and tools. Maybe I will make one for android-tools and android-sdk later. Thank you for the tip.

@rockypra Why don't you use package relations [] when building your custom ADB?

rockypra commented on 2019-12-28 06:19

I think android-tools should be an optional and removed from mandatory deps list. Someone who want to use this package should know that it requires ADB and there is a lot of way of making ADB and any other tools provided by android-tools available to the system. Having android-tools installed alongside the self-managed one is just adding more unneeded redundancy and sometimes conflicts if the self-managed tools are newer than tools provided by Arch Linux package.

I personally had some issue with android-tools package before which is I'm not sure if it's fixed or not, so I started to manage Android development stuff by myself and I prefer to do it that way rather than waiting for Arch Linux team to update their packages.

@nvllsvm The rm -rf build in the prepare() function is unnecessary. If you want to clean up leftovers from previous builds just add -c/--clean to your makepkg command (see:

@nvllsvm Now the android-tools package is listed both as a mandatory and optional dependency.

there is the arch-meson wrapper, which includes some handy predefined variables for meson

@nvllsvm: Please use ninja to install instead of installing the files manually. It will install the man page and install the server in the proper place in /usr/share/. Never install things in /usr/local/share. See Building with meson and Directories.

Why is android-tools optional? adb is required for basic functionality. See the build instructions.

Don't create unnecessary variables when you can used existing ones. See Package etiquette.

Please implement the changes I've made in my PKGBUILD.

@rebelCoder. You're missing pkg-config. Please ensure you have the base-devel group of packages installed. Most AUR packages assume this; it is documented at
