It's not building since liblastfm-qt5 is not found. Can you provide a pkgbuild?

Fulgen commented on 2018-05-20 12:30

git is missing in the makedepends-array, causing the package not to build successfully in a clean chroot.

@maintainers: a bit cleanup in the pkgbuild

Please remove qjson from dependencies - no longer required and change liblastfm (which is built against qt4) dep to liblastfm-qt5

@evorster - Are you really shure, that dependencies in you PKgBUILD are corresponding with amarok's CMakeLists.txt? See:

Hi there. I have merged my amarok-kf5-git package into this one, as that is what happened in the source. It should compile now.

ekce commented on 2017-12-30 10:48

edit: Seems this aur package relies on kde4 libs and won't compile as is. I'm gonna flag it as out of date.

I can't get this to build. I get an error about a missing file. Tried installing kdewebkit but it made no difference.

Hi there.

This package does not build against the standard ffmpeg included in Arch. It seems that fairly recently ffmpeg decided to move some of their headers around.

I reported this bug to the Amarok people, but the git repository does not seem to be too active, so I won't be holding my breath for a fix. In the meantime, we can compile amarok against ffmpeg2.8.

We just need to make ffmpeg2.8 a dependency, and then add the following line in the build script before the cmake section:

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/usr/lib/ffmpeg2.8/pkgconfig"

I stole this fix from ffmpegthumbs which seemed to suffer from the same problem for a while.
