Thanks, @lmartinez-mirror, I've missed that. Removed redundant items.

FYI you don't need to explicitly add ytfzf to provides or conflicts to this package since they're implied via pkgname.

sekret , fzf is optional. users can use any other fuzy finder, example: dmenu or rofi.

I listed it as optdepends

here is a comment from this issue

regrading it not working from AUR due to missing fzf,

fzf is listed as an optional dependency, program can work fine if the user chooses to use dmenu/rofi instead of fzf. enforcing fzf as required isn't a good solution

An array of packages that are not needed for the software to function, but provide additional features. This may imply that not all executables provided by a package will function without the respective optdepends


Arch currently uses optional dependencies even when it means that executables provided by the package aren't going to work with the minimal set of dependencies. The packages could be split up more to avoid this without pulling in more stuff, but it's not what packagers usually choose to it. It's a design choice left up to the packager, not a bug.

mailing list, Daniel Micay

Same concept is applied to zathura, it doesn't work without one of its optional deps

You forgot the (most obvious) dependency fzf.
