This package will automatically retrieve and build the latest development snapshot of Ardour from git.

It does not need to be updated on every release, so please do not flag out of date unless the build breaks.

@SpotlightKid: Yes, please do. I don't use the git version all that often either, but it happens, especially when reporting bugs and testing fixes. :)

@aggraef: I'll look into it, maybe tonight, probably tomorrow.

Tbh, I don't use the -git Version of Ardour myself very often. If you want, I can make you a co-maintainer of this package, so you could make these kind of changes yourself. No obligation to to keep the package up-to-date involved.

I just noticed that the bundled media content from is missing in the git package. This contains all the MIDI clips. Now it's possible to install these manually, but David's package at includes these, which is very convenient. Maybe they could be included here as well? That would be much appreciated. :) It shouldn't be hard to take the necessary bits from David's PKGBUILD.

@agraef: thanks for the heads up. Fixed.

aggraef commented on 2023-06-13 20:33 (UTC)

@SpotlightKid, the icon links in the package are broken. s/ardour6/ardour7/g in the PKGBUILD will fix it.

SpotlightKid commented on 2022-07-26 22:11 (UTC)

@bertino: I'm sure what other help I can give. Try removing the alrdour checkout and the src dir before running makepkg so you are sure to start with an up-to-date checkout and clean build dir.

bertino commented on 2022-07-26 20:33 (UTC)

@SpotlightKid hm yes I reinstalled lv2, and I do have /usr/include/lv2/core/lv2.h and still have the error, might have miss-typed the first time I wrote the path.

SpotlightKid commented on 2022-07-26 18:23 (UTC)

@bertino: /usr/include/core/lv2.h is not the correct path. You should have /usr/include/lv2 and inside there core and other directories. Try re-installing lv2 maybe?
