This contains the absolute path to the directory where the PKGBUILD is located, which is usually the output of $(pwd) when makepkg is started. Use of this variable is deprecated and strongly discouraged.

I found time to update this, but just stumbled upon your post after updating. I’ll have a look at your PKGBUILD and adjust accordingly. Thank you good sir!

Active maintainership on this package is great news. I recently started working on a couple issues with the aur/st package:

  • making the configuration via config.h visible to the user
  • making working terminfo entries available in the package

Feel free to have a look at my solutions and copy them or improve upon them as you please.

Love this terminal, I’ll maintain this package. Give me a day or two and I’ll have a working PKGBUILD.

I have one st build with easy changeable colorscheme, check that out also.

Can someone please take a look and tell me what I'm doing wrong ?

I have a few questions/comments about this package

#1: You remove the terminfo file; but st-git needs its terminfo. The one packaged with current ncurses does not work with st-git. We need to install that terminfo somewhere.

#2 Your various FLAGS alterations should probably be submitted upstream, not here, no? However, it looks like they were all implemented by now, with the exception of CPPFLAGS, and I assume they did that for a reason. You can take those out of the PKGBUILD.

#3 While we're taking things out of the PKGBUILD, your personal customizations to config.h should probably go in a config.h, not the global AUR package.

#4 Thank you for switching to the tag versions rather than date, but you forgot to update SRCINFO!

great idea prash, I included that.

Please replace line 49 with
patch -Np1 <"$srcdir/$(basename ${file})"

That way, users can include URLs for patches hosted at They might have to modify the sha1sums array, but that's something they can figure out while modifying the source array.

I was running into an issue where I built the package which created a config.h and later on I patched the config.def.h but it was not used due to the now existing config.h

I just deleted the config.h and the package recreated it taking the now patched version of config.def.h

Just something to be aware of if you are applying patches and redoing the makepkg.
