Can you add this as a dependency? Without it, I cannot build in a clean-chroot against needed (the arch-build scripts will download the wrong version from [extra]).

depends=(... xfconf>=4.13.7-1")

xfdesktop: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

As an FYI, as of Feb 11 2018 if you try to install this with Thunar-devel installed, it fails with:

xfdesktop-xfdesktop-file-icon-manager.o: In function `xfdesktop_file_icon_manager_populate_context_menu':

xfdesktop-file-icon-manager.c:(.text+0x343f): undefined reference to `thunarx_menu_provider_get_file_actions'

xfdesktop-file-icon-manager.c:(.text+0x3691): undefined reference to `thunarx_menu_provider_get_folder_actions'

collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

However, if Thunar from the repositories is installed first, xfdesktop-devel installs fine (thunar-devel can be installed after).

Thanks killermoehre and twa022 for getting this fix in. I was able to transition without issue today. Took me a while to look at this again and see it was fixed.

Thanks killermoehre. Took me a while to get around to this. For anyone else, the process to transition from ...-4.11 to ...-devel is to answer Y to edit PKGBUILD and change the following line:



provides=("${_pkgname}=${pkgver}" "${_pkgname}-4.11")

then continue with the install.

Of course, the maintainer of this package needs to make that change to the PKGBUILD, but since it's been a while without the fix, if you run into a problem with the transition, this is how to fix it yourself.

Please add to the provide list "${_pkgname}-4.11" for easy transition.
Thank you.
