I tried the way of @phw and it works.

@eMyller: On my Manjaro System (XFCE) Peek outputs a 0 byte file no matter the legnth of the recording.

@phw: Sorry for the delay, I didn't receive any notification of your comments.

So, yeah, by that time I manually skipped tests prior to compilation and it all went just fine. Also I don't have any custom/outdated versions of anything. Peek launched successfully and the only bug I noticed is that it outputs a 0-byte GIF file when the recording time exceeds a certain amount of time (~40s for me). That may be filed as another bug, though.

I just checked all the dependencies of the peek binary, they should all be covered by the dependencies declared in the PKGBUILD. The packages required for all the libraries are gtk3, cairo (required by gtk3), glib2 (required by gtk3) and glibc.

Do you have any outdated or non-standard version of one of these packages installed?

@eMyller: Yes, probably missing dependencies, but I don't know what. Can you try building the PKGBUILD without the check() function (run "makepkg --nocheck"), install the package and try to launch peek then. I still expect it to crash, but maybe we get some more information why. The tests unfortunately don't tell much.

Perhaps we have a missing dependency?
