Wouldn't it make more sense for this to depend upon girara rather than girara-git? Then, simply version girara >= .... When upgrading from zathura to zathura-git, it breaks since zathura requires girara.

Could you maybe orphan the package, if you're not going to update it anyway?

Downgrading the package to libsynctex-2017.44590-14-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz fixed the issue for me with the mainline Zathura (community package).

Ah. It looks like the changes were on synctex's end, not zathura's, and that there's already a patch in the development branch of zathura. It seems that this will just be a matter of waiting a few days for that patch to be adopted in the master branch.

I'm getting a failed build. Possibly related to the recent zathura synctex changes?

I suggest adding python-sphinx to makedepends, as it's required to build the manpages (as you can see in src/zathura/doc/Makefile lines 41 onwards).

Package built without python-sphinx:

$ find pkg/zathura-git/usr/share/man -type f -> (nothing)

Package built with python-sphinx installed:

$ find pkg/zathura-git/usr/share/man -type f -> man5/zathurarc.5.gz and man1/zathura.1.gz

Maybe it has already been said, but trying to update zathura-git doesn't automatically update girara-git, and with an old version of it installing will fail.

The minimum required version of GIRARA is 0.2.7
make: *** [Makefile:63: .version-checks/GIRARA] Error 1

==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build zathura-git.

The makedepends array does not contain the python requirements for building the documentation. Shouldn't they be included?
Also, since the required packages have had version upgrades shouldn't the checks be >= instead of specifying exact versions?

With these changes, the manpage files were built successfully.

updating from zathura-git fails with the error:

zathura/main.c: In function ‘init_zathura’:

Any ideas?

Girara dependency should be versioned, like: depends=('girara-git>=0.2.4')
