Quick side note: there’s a great new application that came out recently that some of you may have already heard of called extension-manager that essentially takes what Gnomes Extension app is, but uses GTK4/libadwaita and adds additional features and juices it up to level 11 so the app is more inline with the Gnome Extensions website. For a full breakdown, feel free to visit their Github/AUR for more info:
Now, back to my issue today at hand is the package’s recent update fails to update running yay

I’ve already tried a cleanbuild (unsuccessfully), and I’ve also submitted a bug report on the devs Github/AUR sites to let them know as well, but if there’s something else I could do to get it working again or if I just have to patiently wait for a hotfix to be deployed. The only “solution” I can think of is if I uninstall Cozy, see if the extensions-manager builds then, and then reinstall Cozy and hope that doesn’t put out an error. But other than that I think I’m a little out of ideas.
Anyone have any suggestions please let me know, if not no worries, and thanks for reading my post.
I never left it But I think it’ll build fine on a fresh install. But having cozy-audiobooks I think now complicates things for some reason, not sure entirely why. I can post the entire build output if you really want to check, but I only saw the error at the end of it, so I only posted that part.
That’s where I’m at too. I guess maybe permissions need to be changed for something to allow both apps to use the same file that’s conflicting now. Not sure if that falls on the user or falls on the package maintainers, but since they are both from the AUR, it’s kind of a wait and see at this point since I’m all out of ideas. I did submit bug reports so perhaps that’ll help shed some light on this. It is a bit odd, to use one app, I have to uninstall another app, but it’s a “temporary solution” at best right now lol
Nah, I’m not on any testing repos at the moment. I’m not in a huge hurry to have Gnome 42, where half my apps will be GTK3 and half my apps will be GTK4 and themes looking “slightly” inconsistent, but it’ll be livable
