Hey guys. I haven't packaged anything specifically for Arch before, but I package applications for Windows/SCCM, so the concept is familiar to me. This is a whole different beast, however.
The drivers are available from source or as a .deb here.
Their wiki page is here.
Anyway, I tried making the package last night, but wasn't able to get any success, though my method was very... rudimentary.
I initially tried extracting the .deb, which yielded some directories named opt and usr. So, I figured, those probably get stuck in /usr and /opt. So I made the install step do that, and I stuck their one binary file in /usr/bin.
This didn't work; it was complaining about syntax errors in some python files they had in /opt.
At this point, I conked out and went to bed. Unfortunately, I had been messing around with this in a location mounted as tmpfs, and I was annoyed enough and considering switching to Lubuntu in my sorrow, so I just let it burn.
(The AUR is too good, can't leave Arch.)
So I'm here for help packaging this, and I guess tips on converting a .deb into an Arch package. Any help?
Arch uses python 3 as the default while most other distros use python 2.
In this package the python files contain
On Ubuntu this will call python 2, but on arch it will call python 3. You'll need to use sed to change all these lines to
