Hi, I noticed in the perl script that $YEAR is set to 2018, is this still valid?

Thanks @cobaltspace, also confirming w/ @RealOrRandom that adjusting PKGBUILD with this 'pkgver()' change works! Needed tllocalmgr to resolve a lgrenc.def dependency, found in the greek-fontenc package. Installed the package with tllocalmgr and all is good.

I can confirm that the function by cobaltspace makes the package install and results in the correct version string.

The pkgver() fuction should probably look like

pkgver() {
  cd ${_gitname:-$pkgname}
  git describe --long | sed 's/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g'

Since the update to pacman 5.2, the package fails to build, failing at the pkgver() stage. No further error message is given to hint what the problem might be.

Isn't this supposed to not conflict with the texlive packages in the official repos? I'm trying to install mlacls and it is saying it conflicts with texlive-publishers>=2018.51865

I sort of got it to work. Update texlive-tlpdb (AUR) and copy that file

sudo cp /usr/share/tlpkg/texlive.tlpdb /var/lib/texmf/arch/installedpkgs/texlive-tlpdb_2019-2.pkgs

"update" and "search" now show a message:

Use of uninitialized value in numeric lt (<) at /usr/bin/tllocalmgr line 229. Argument "2019-2" isn't numeric in numeric lt (<) at /usr/bin/tllocalmgr line 229.

texlive-localmanager stopped working for me, with this error:

"Cannot open /var/lib/texmf/arch/installedpkgs/texlive-tlpdb_2019-2.pkgs"

I don't understand how to create-, or where to find that absent file. I tried running fmtutil-sys --all and texhash, to no avail. Any advice?

I've tried to contact the author Rémy Oudompheng on the 5th of April via twitter asking to remove --clean from "makepkg -ic" because I need .PKGINFO to exist. I know it's not the most appropriate way to reach out, does anyone know his email? Is there an issue tracker on
