This PR was merged and now the swaybar-fix.patch cannot be applied.

benutzer193 commented on 2018-09-09 23:43

setcap is not required anymore judging by this commit:

@HaoZeke tray is not ready in this version afaik, and there's no more swaygrab.

HaoZeke commented on 2018-09-04 05:15

Is there a reason this is built without tray icon support and swaygrab?

It seems the issue (#1785) is still open upstream, so I assume the patch is still needed. That being said, it should probably be merged upstream if it's the actual fix, not kept to the AUR.

Is the patch still needed? Considering the constant code churn in sway, I was wondering whether the issue this patch was made for has been fixed.

I made a small improvement to the postinstall script, as it fails to add the capabilities when updating the package:

$ cat sway-wlroots-git.install 
post_install() {
post_upgrade() {
    setcap 'cap_sys_admin,cap_sys_ptrace,cap_sys_tty_config=eip' usr/bin/sway

I've added the cap_sys_admin as when trying to run sway as systemd user session it complains about it missing.

Getting the following error while compiling: EDIT: Fixed it updating wlroots-git.

stepovic: libelogind is not necessary to run sway. Adding as an optional dependency. The error you are getting might come from an out-of-date wlroots-git.

stepovic commented on 2018-07-21 11:32

Got "Dependency libelogind found: NO" while building the package and an error about a missing "wlr/types/wlr_linux_dmabuf_v1.h" (in /sway/sway/server.c:14:10) while updating. The initial installation worked though.
