Even with the fixed mesonbuild, I still get a build error.

@xenu -- it appears to be a bug in mesonbuild

I have been getting a build error the last couple of days probably due to upstream commits to Xorg.wrap on 2021-03-25:

fair enough, if xorg-xwayland exists no point maintaining it here.

Rucikir commented on 2020-12-11 23:54

Hi! the extra package extracted xwayland to a standalone package (so, from the split package xorg-server-xwayland to xorg-xwayland).
I plan to do that too for my HiDPI package since it only touches xwayland, and I’ll remove xorg-server-*-hidpi-git and switch to xorg-wayland-hidpi-git.
You may want to consider mimicking what was done in extra. If I’m first to write that package, I’ll send you the patches ;-)

JstKddng commented on 2020-11-12 19:05

Thanks for the patch @Rucikir

Rucikir commented on 2020-11-12 18:02

@dequesto I’ve send a patch to the maintainer. I forgot I could inline the patch here. It’s quite simple indeed. acac6d74

dequesto commented on 2020-11-12 16:57

Hi. Heads up! Because of commit 28ed4b95, that adds file /usr/share/man/man1/Xwayland.1, installation of this package fails.

Commit is described here:

I am not sure what I should add to the script, hence I have no patch. It should be a trivial thing to fix, though.

Thanks for this package! I appreciate it.

JstKddng commented on 2020-07-09 15:51


thanks for the heads up, just updated the package

Rucikir commented on 2020-07-09 07:02

This patch is needed for the latest commits.
