IMPORTANT: This package always installs the latest insider build (see pkgver() function), so if you want daily updates, just run "makepkg -si" everyday and it will update. I won't be updating pkgver every single day.

Thanks for providing this

I like to install this next to the stable version, but recently it started complaining about conflicts with code

I can edit PKGBUILD like this:


... but I think it shouldn't be necessary

@yurikoles please try again with a clean build directory, the file is there.

@akiirui, which is in the base-devel group which is assumed to be installed by all AUR packages.

dcelasun commented on 2019-09-27 06:32

Should be fixed.

@gusbemacbe, you can remove the lines that end with .desktop from the PKGBUILD.

gusbemacbe commented on 2019-05-14 21:27

Hello @dcelasun!

I would like to exclude .desktop files from PKGBUILD, so I have already them in ~/.local/share/applications/. How?

dcelasun commented on 2019-04-04 14:54

@ShayBox the problem with that is I can't test every single nightly build Microsoft pushes. I don't think they do it either, that's why insiders builds are always provided as-is without guarantees.

If I had a script that automatically updated this package, I wouldn't know if it even worked correctly! Instead, what I do is manually run a build once every month or so and publish to AUR if it works fine. This, by the way, is how most *-git packages on AUR are maintained.

I understand your problem, I really do. But I don't think there is an easy solution beyond what we already have.

Oh, and:

but the aur is really meant to use incrementing version numbers

Yes, and this package does that. It just isn't automatic.
