Hi, i tried to build the package today and it failed to apply the werrors-fix.patch. I solved the problem by creating a new patch file from inside the git repo. Just a heads up so it can get fixed.

Hi, this package don't compile anymore because all warning are treated as errors. The warning say that some functions are deprecated. Maybe it's work with qt51-base package but, like other, I cannot build it.

Every time I started the service, it would just fail with a core dump. After rebuilding it with some debugging information, I discovered that the error was "could not connect to display" because $DISPLAY was not set. I fixed this by adding Environment=DISPLAY=:0 to the unit file, but I realized in this pursuit that starting it with systemd was kind of a bad idea because it relies on X. Now I just start it with twmnd & in ~/.xinitrc. The author even considers service deprecated.

@chestm007: I personally don't run twmn as a service, but that seems to make sense (and is slightly more secure, anyways). I've pushed the change and bumped the pkgver as well.

is /usr/lib/systemd/service/twmnd.service supposed to be in /usr/lib/systemd/user/twmnd.service? after moving the unit file to there and enabling the unit systemctl --user start twmnd it worked, but as a system service is wasnt recieving notifications.

@cyrozap: Brilliant, thanks!

@Ophion It just needs a recompile so it gets linked with the new version of the boost library.

Just in case anyone else needs a rebuild, I've bumped the pkgrel.

After the last libboost update I'm getting this error: twmnc: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory I guess something inside twmn needs an update?

I would suggest adding the --abbrev=7 flag to the git describe command in the pkgver function of the PKGBUILD. This in order to not always get out-of-date package for us who have set a custom sha1 abbrev length (core.abbrev) to 12 recommended by the Linux development guidelines. Thank you for your consideration and the maintenance of this PKGBUILD.

@j.kienzle I've updated the pkgver, but please note that *-git (and other *-vcs) packages don't typically update on every commit.
