Fotokilof GUI for ImageMagick build error

Fotokilof the GUI for ImageMagick

==> Start prepare()…
/usr/bin/patch: **** Can’t open patch file /var/tmp/pamac-build-space/fotokilof/src/ : No such file or directory
==> ERROR: An error occurred in prepare().

Does anyone know why that error occurred?

Seeing that the file is with the PKGBUILD, pamac might have failed to download it, or put at the wrong place.
Building manually should still work.

Thanks for your explanation.
The download did not fail, but the second was likely the case and that inspired me to try it with

yay -S fotokilof

and that worked and is much more easy (also to update it instead of manually pulling it from Git).
Anyway, thanks for the inspiration.

I just wonder why the pacman GUI miss places the file?

You may want to see that with the devs.

Hmmm. Just had a similar problem but when using “yay -S fotokilof”
line 23: patch: command not found

Check whether base-devel is installed.
If not install

$ sudo pacman -S base-devel

it’s needed often for AUR packages!
Hope that helps.

Duh! Thanks Masalaba, job done.
