Why aren't these dependencies installed automatically?

Because makepkg doesn't work that way.

It can though. If you look at "makepkg --help" you can see this option:

...
  -s, --syncdeps   Install missing dependencies with pacman
...

So you can run "makepkg -s" or "makepkg --syncdeps" to install the dependencies automatically.

Re: Progress on Unity under Arch Linux!

I am building the packages with the -si switch with the script posted on one of the first pages. But when I do it manually it works.

big_smile The "-i" option is very useful too: it installs the packages automatically after they are built. No more looking for the right package file after building several versions smile

Nice! Especially when I'm writing patches, where I usually do this:

diff -Nru a-1.0.orig/ a-1.0/ > fix_something.patch
makepkg -g >> PKGBUILD
rm -rvf pkg/ src/
makepkg -fsi

Re: Progress on Unity under Arch Linux!

I just finished compiling and booted into unity. I found the wallpaper and theme and icons cannot be changed (to Ambiance or Radiance ,stays at Adwaita), I don't have a clue why this happens. I tried resetting by deleting config files and nothing happens. And qt applications don't get global menu. Is it because that I compiled qt-ubuntu for 10 hours and installed it as the last package to install?

Hmm...could you try changing the theme using gnome-tweak-tool?

Also, to get global menus for Qt applications, just install appmenu-qt from the repos smile

No need to apologize; nobody wants to read 21 pages of a forum thread to see if a problem has been solved smile

I'm not sure why that happens. There's no reason Qt should be using Xorg during the build. Could you try building with:

DISPLAY="" makepkg

That should hopefully force it to not use Xorg.

Darn smile You'll want to report a bug here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour … n/+filebug

Hopefully, they will fix it quickly, but Ubuntu doesn't have XFCE 4.10 yet

Re: Progress on Unity under Arch Linux!

Gah! Do I feel really dumb. Don't laugh, but I had replaced the "split" command with a bash script that splits my screen onto 2 monitors.  Thus, the project files were not being split and xrandr was being called. Sorry for wasting your time. yikes I'm going to go smack my head into a wall. Haha.

On a side note, really enjoying the cleanliness of these PKGBUILDs.  I've seen many that are disgusting, and these are probably the best written ones out there.  Thanks for the builds!

Haha, don't feel dumb...I've done things even stupider. My bash environment reads all these files: http://i.imgur.com/F0TbK.png. Once, I accidentally overrode the echo command with something else in one of those files, which caused my bash prompt to look like this: http://i.imgur.com/GqnES.png. And then...well, let's just say that it took quite a while to find out what file was broken big_smile

On a side note, really enjoying the cleanliness of these PKGBUILDs.  I've seen many that are disgusting, and these are probably the best written ones out there.  Thanks for the builds!

Thanks for the compliment! I do my best to write clean PKGBUILDs because otherwise, I wouldn't be able to read them myself smile

Also, if you have any suggestions for the PKGBUILDs, I'd be glad to change them.

I just finished compiling and booted into unity. I found the wallpaper and theme and icons cannot be changed (to Ambiance or Radiance ,stays at Adwaita), I don't have a clue why this happens. I tried resetting by deleting config files and nothing happens. And qt applications don't get global menu. Is it because that I compiled qt-ubuntu for 10 hours and installed it as the last package to install?

Hmm...could you try changing the theme using gnome-tweak-tool?

Also, to get global menus for Qt applications, just install appmenu-qt from the repos smile

Installing appmenu-qt works!

I tried changing themes and icons using gnome tweak tool and ubuntu tweak(built from your Unity-for-arch-extra), neither works. The settings seem to be fail to save, also I cannot change some settings( like keyboard options to ctrl+alt+backspace to kill xserver). Should I recompile some packages to solve this?

EDIT:
I tried new user and worked well,then I reset configs by deleting more files than your readme suggest, the script is as follows:

#!/bin/sh
rm -rvf ~/.compiz-1/
rm -rvf ~/.cache/compizconfig-1/
rm -rvf ~/.cache/dconf/
rm -rvf ~/.cache/unity/
rm -vf ~/.cache/unity-lens-video
rm -rvf ~/.config/compiz-1/
rm -rvf ~/.config/dconf/
rm -rvf ~/.config/gnome-control-center/
rm -rvf ~/.config/gnome-session/
rm -rvf ~/.gconf/
rm -rvf ~/.gnome2/
rm -rvf ~/.gnome2_private/
rm -rvf ~/.gvfs/
rm -rvf ~/.local/
rm -rvf ~/.config/nautilus/

Hope it will help others who have installed and used Gnome-shell before experiencing the same problem.

Thank you for your great work!

Re: Progress on Unity under Arch Linux!

Got (almost) everything compiled and it all works great!! The only thing that didn't was the Unity Video Lens, but seeing as how I don't need it, it's not that big of a deal.  I can post a log if you like (still just waking up. big_smile ).  Also, I believe you need to change the build order.   "activity-log-manager" needs to come after "gnome-control-center-ubuntu".  That was the only other hiccup I found. 

Also, I changed almost all of your PKGBUILDs to have the -j5 to compile faster (I have a quad-core i7 laptop).  Maybe set MAKEFLAGS to have the -j2 option for better efficiency (As it doesn't seem to be used)? Or is that against the PKGBUILD rules? big_smile  I will say that a couple of the packages complained about having multiple threads while building (Error: Waiting for jobs to finish).  I can give you a complete list later as I would like to rebuild my entire Arch System with Unity. big_smile That's my project for today.

Re: Progress on Unity under Arch Linux!

@soppy: Take a look at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Makepkg.conf wink
Just set the MAKEFLAGS there.

It gives this error: http://pastebin.com/NHKb8TQq

I think changing the order will solve the problem.

Re: Progress on Unity under Arch Linux!

I think the README in git should be adjusted. I couldn't compile activity-log-manager without gnome-control-center-ubuntu first. I had this problem in virtualbox also if you look on page 14 of this thread.  Compiling unity outside of virtualbox. Going to finish up tomorrow. hopefully big_smile

activity-log-manager order is fixed. A build log would be nice when you feel a little bit more awake big_smile

Like Radioactiveman said, you can change this in /etc/makepkg.conf. If you don't want to alter system files, you can also add:

MAKEFLAGS="-j5"

to ~/.makepkg.conf

Oh yeah, it might not be very scientific, but "-j8" has always seemed to be faster on my i7 laptop smile

Thanks for the build log! I've changed the order in the README.

Maybe I'm just too tired (3:00 AM here now big_smile), but I can't seem to find any post about VirtualBox. Could you tell me the post number?
