I have read the last comments. If you use the AUR helper yay, it results in a message that this package is out of date. Only you can help us get rid of this message by pushing the PKGBUILD back to the net then it will up-to-date again.

@cookiengineer 0.9 is the latest release in both github and gitlab repo, so this package should definitely not be flagged as out-of-date. What you want to be updated is screenkey-git ( Also, the only difference between master branch of github and gitlab repo is the README, and that's just because github repo's readme was modified to state "This repository has been migrated to GitLab". If you want to check that, clone both repos, remove .git folder from both and run "git diff --name-only" to compare the directories.

Can you please change the URL in the PLGBUILD file to build from gitlab instead?

The maintainer ragequitted github and left to gitlab (same account, same project name). A lot of fixes are in there already compared to the last released version on github.

How this isn't a part of [extra] is a mystery to me. It just works. And it looks good, too.

Can you please add "slop" as an optional dependency? This is required for selecting window region from the config window.

This PKGBUILD now uses a new active fork that fixed several issues and added new features:

The newer PKGBUILD spec *requires* package(), which isn't present in the screenkey PKGBUILD:
==> ERROR: Missing package() function in /path/to/PKGBUILD

"The package() function is the only required function in a PKGBUILD. If you must only copy files into their respective directories to install a program, do not put it in the build() function, put that in the package() function."
