For those interested I have made a draft PKGBUILD for version 4.9 and QT5

pkgdesc="Backup & Sync tool using Rsync and Qt5"
depends=( 'qt5-base' 'rsync' 'openssh')

build() {
cd "${srcdir}/code"

package() {
cd "${srcdir}/code"
make INSTALL_ROOT="${pkgdir}" install

PS3: I tried two options from gksu : with -w, then with -S (first one forces gksu to use the real root mode, the -S forces gksu to use the sudo mode). The -S option is the one which works.

About full paths : in the Icon= line, only the name of the icon file needs to be written:


The system manages with that.

PS2: in fact I am wrong about gksu. It works from console but not in the desktop file.

melodie commented on 2015-04-19 12:50

PS: you don't need to give the full path to the executable in the desktop file. The system is supposed to know where the applications are located (see "echo $PATH")

"su-to-root" from the luckybackup-gnome-su.desktop file Exec command line, is an unknown command.

ie in console:
$ su-to-root -X -c /usr/bin/luckybackup
bash: su-to-root : command not found

If you fancy using "pkexec" instead, it does not work better:
$ pkexec luckybackup
QCoreApplication::applicationDirPath: Please instantiate the QApplication object first
luckybackup: cannot connect to X server

What works here is gksu. (The warnings seem harmless)
$ gksu luckybackup
QCoreApplication::applicationDirPath: Please instantiate the QApplication object first
libpng warning: iCCP: too many profiles
libpng warning: iCCP: known incorrect sRGB profile
libpng warning: iCCP: known incorrect sRGB profile

I am using Archlinux x86_64 with Openbox +openbox-menu (lxde type menus) all up to date.

I am tweaking that desktop file and placing it in my local applications directory for now. Perhaps would you agree on improving this exec command in a next package?

Thanks for your work.

Progress bar not working: always at 0%

I think, you should add a simple 'make' call to the build function - otherwise the pkg gets build in the package function, which is not correct.

Yest , it is not qmake4 but qmake-qt4

BluePeril commented on 2013-03-01 20:27

could you also change the arch from ('any') to ('i686' 'x86_64'). the package is not platform independent
