[SOLVED]wingpanel-git installation problems in PKGBUILD

I was installing necessary packages for Pantheron
while installing gala-git, it has some issue with mutter, which I fixed by downgrading it.
next step is to install wingpanel-git,
after cloning git when I run the command

$ makepkg -si

error starts from here

CMake Error: The source directory "/home/ujjwal/Downloads/wingpanel-git/src/wingpanel" does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt.
Specify --help for usage, or press the help button on the CMake GUI.
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
    Aborting...

I searched on directories, even on web, but I couldn't found the CMakeLists.txt
What to do?

Re: [SOLVED]wingpanel-git installation problems in PKGBUILD

There is a meson.build file in the wingpanel source directory.
Seems they switched to the meson build system and the PKGBUILD needs to be updated.
See also the README.md file.

edit:

$ cd src/wingpanel
$ git log

Re: [SOLVED]wingpanel-git installation problems in PKGBUILD

Followed README.md

$ meson build --prefix=/usr
$ cd build
$ ninja
$ sudo ninja install
$ wingpanel

but after the last command(wingpanel), nothing happens

Re: [SOLVED]wingpanel-git installation problems in PKGBUILD

$ meson build --prefix=/usr
$ cd build
$ ninja
$ sudo ninja install
$ wingpanel

You're installing programs outside of our package manager pacman, which will lead to problems.
Undo those steps immediately and correct the PKGBUILD

Incase you do prefer to install manually , install in /usr/local instead of /usr .

Edit: or use wingpanel package instead.

Multi-init booting with apg Openrc and systemd coexisting
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Re: [SOLVED]wingpanel-git installation problems in PKGBUILD

there is a different file wingpanel.git instead of wingpanel-git.git
should I copy its CMakeLists.txt to wingpanel-git.git?

Re: [SOLVED]wingpanel-git installation problems in PKGBUILD

You might want to post the updated PKGBUILD to the relevant AUR page and contact the maintainer that they could adjust accordingly.
