How do I run kavita?

How do I run kavita? I've tried writing kavita on the terminal but it doesn't work and there isn't a launcher in the menu.

Re: How do I run kavita?

It should have told you how when you installed it. https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/ … kavita-bin

Not that that's a good .install file, but at least that info is there.

Not sure if this counts as necrobumping, but as the guy who put that install file together, I am definitely open to suggestions on making it better. Its improved since you've seen it last, but I am not above making mistakes

Re: How do I run kavita?

It is much better now, the only remaining real problem is the userdel kavita. See https://archlinux.org/todo/usergroup-management/

Personally, I wouldn't be giving a specific systemctl command, you don't know if people would want to use --now or enable the service.

Re: How do I run kavita?

Some observations on the PKGBUILD:

build() {
    cd "${srcdir}"

    tar -xvf kavita-linux-*.tar.gz
    cd Kavita
    chmod 755 Kavita
}

makepkg will extract the archive for you.  If you move the chmod to package() you can drop build().

package() {

mkdir -p $pkgdir/opt/kavita
install -Dm 644 $srcdir/Kavita/config/appsettings.json  $pkgdir/etc/Kavita/appsettings.json
cp -Ra $srcdir/Kavita/* $pkgdir/opt/kavita
install -Dm 644 ../kavita.sysusers "${pkgdir}"/usr/lib/sysusers.d/${pkgname}.conf
install -Dm 644 ../kavita.tmpfiles "${pkgdir}"/usr/lib/tmpfiles.d/${pkgname}.conf
install=kavita.install
install -Dm 644 ../kavita.service -t "$pkgdir"/usr/lib/systemd/system/
rm $pkgdir/opt/kavita/config/appsettings.json

Missing quoting on $srcdir some uses of $pkgdir.

install=kavita.install

Minor nit as it is not a split package it makes no difference if the install entry is in package() or gloabl but by convention it it goes just above the source array PKGBUILD#install.  It could replace the empty depends and makedepends arrays.
