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.

Yeah, it's a pacaur issue. After pacaur builds the pkg.tar.xz properly and then fails to install it as below, I can install the pkg.tar.xz just fine with pacman -U

Maybe you have a dirty build directory? Or it’s a problem with an AUR helper?

It builds and installs fine with makepkg -si here.

==> Cleaning up...
:: Installing visual-studio-code-insiders package(s)...
:: visual-studio-code-insiders package(s) failed to install.
:: ensure package version does not mismatch between .SRCINFO and PKGBUILD
:: ensure package name has a VCS suffix if this is a devel package

Is there a trick to get this to install? Does it need a VCS suffix if the version number is dynamic to work properly?

Thank you, the new desktop file works fine with gnome!

Fixed, sorry about that.

Hi, the last version ( fails to install because the visual-studio-code-insiders.desktop file does not pass the validity check.

There is a typo in the PKGBUILD in the x86_64 checksum for this file :

diff --git a/PKGBUILD b/PKGBUILD
index 648fd29..4e7abce 100644

Could you fix it please ?

OK, should be fixed now.

hensur commented on 2018-01-20 11:11

Yes, I did. And it didn't work. Until now only my version with spaces around the hyphen worked.

This is what xprop shows for vscode:

WM_CLASS(STRING) = "code - insiders", "Code - Insiders"

dcelasun commented on 2018-01-18 11:30

I know it doesn't match but "code - insiders" is not a valid value for StartupWMCLass. Did you test the version I pushed?

hensur commented on 2018-01-18 11:22

Hm, it still doesn't match... Here is my working file:
