Yep, working now, thanks :)

Are you using the latest PKGBUILD (4.0.2-2) ? It should have a proper URL for the new AUR version.

AUR search doesn't work.
I suppose you need to change the RPC search code, if that is what you are using.
Had to do the same with my custom AUR downloader script.

1) all you need about icons support should be found in the man page
2) No need for sudo, no. kalu's updater does auth via policykit, so you'll likely need to have a polkit authentication agent running for things to work however.

I have two problems:
1) I cannot change the tray icon
2) Authentication is failing. Maybe kalu is using sudo? How can I change that?

I was having the same issue as adam777 with the 4.0.1 update. After building branch next and installing it I can verify the fix works and notifications are no longer empty.

jjacky commented on 2016-02-04 08:25

hmm... I guess that's what happens when you're tired. Stupid mistake on my part, just pushed a fix on branch next. Sorry about that.

Will have to release 4.0.2 very soon....

I'm getting empty notifications with 4.0.1 for some reason.
Worked fine in 4.0.0

* EDIT *
Weird, it's working now after a few reinstalls.

Am I the only one getting this error when trying to launch the latest version of kalu (4.0.0-1) ?

This is no longer building. Even when the 'pacman<4.3' dependency is removed from the PKGBUILD file, it's running into an issue with the latest pacman changes (

- alpm_siglevel_t - removed members ALPM_SIG_PACKAGE_SET, ALPM_SIG_PACKAGE_TRUST_SET

- alpm_event_pacorig_created_t
- alpm_event_t.pacorig_created

It's interesting that kalu-kde does build with the 'pacman<4.3' dependency removed, but kalu does not.

[Edit: the other comments weren't here when I started this post. I've used the pacman-5 branch to rebuild kalu and kalu-kde and both appear to be working fine.]
