Do not use make -j$(nproc), just use make. MAKEFLAGS can be defined by the user in /etc/makepkg.

You have a typo in PKGBUILD build, it should be capital -C. Getting error:

It is fixed in version 2.0.1 :)

Hi! Touchégg developer here.

Today I released the version 2.0.0. This version adds libinput support and cool animations and I'd love to make it available on ArchLinux :)

I don't know if this is maintained anymore, but a few changes are required in the PKGBUILD:

pkgname=touchegg pkgver=2.0.0 pkgrel=1 pkgdesc="Multi-touch gesture recognizer" arch=(i686 x86_64) url="" license=(GPL) source=("${pkgname}/archive/${pkgver}.tar.gz")

I dropped Qt and geis as dependencies. Here are the new dependencies and compilation instructions:

Please ping me once it is ready for installation on ArchLinux so I can add it to the installation section on the
