I'm the remmina upstream maintainer.

I was having a look at the remmina PKGBUILD and I noticed that it has some issues, and I'm not sure how I can help.

1. Deprecated dependencies:

NX, XDMCP and Telepathy plugins have been remove upstream (Telepathy since a long time), so these optdepends should be removed:

- libxkbfile: NX plugin
- nxproxy: NX plugin
- xorg-server-xephyr

2. New dependencies.

To add the X2Go plugin remmina must be compiled with -DWITH_X2GO=ON and pyhoca-cli added as optdepends.

For the WWW plugin (HTTP(S) protocol) makedepends should include webkit2gtk

To build and use the GVNC (VNC plugin using gtk-vnc), gtk-vnc should be added in the makedepends, plus the -DWITH_GVNC=ON

An acceptable example is the remmina-git AUR, I don't know if is well written or not, I'm not an expert.

Amazing @sergej ! Thanks.

LGTM, 'telepathy-glib' should be not needed. Remmina, without plugins, depends on GTK, pango + harfbuzz, gobject-introspection, libsecret, kwallet and libsodium. Plus all the dependencies for each plugin
