Audacious now uses Qt 6 and GTK 3 as default, following the change upstream for version 4.4.

@all: If you think Audacious should use GTK 3 instead of GTK 2 by default again, please leave a vote or comment here, thanks.

@radioactiveman I built a gtk3 only version but i also had to add python-packaging for audacious-plugins otherwise "packaging error".

Radioactiveman commented on 2024-04-05 22:18 (UTC)

@Npa: I have already updated the makedeps. :)

Regarding the GTK version: Arch Linux uses the default build configuration usually. I want to stick with that. You can enable GTK3 manually with "--enable-gtk3" for ./configure or append "-D gtk3=true" if you use Meson.

Consider that you have to do this for "audacious-git" and "audacious-plugins-git".

@Radioactiveman thanks à lot ! it works with python-packaging. Perhaps shouldn't it be in the make deps ?

Another question not too stupid i hope : why don't you replace gtk2 with gtk3. Audacious is the only package that needs gtk2 on my computer. I don't think I'm the only one.

Now i am rid of qt5, only gtk2 remains :)

@Npa: Please try installing python-packaging.

Ah, I see what happened; my actual goal was to remove gtk entirely, and I saw the PKGBUILD change for "Add gtk2 dependency" which removed the configure hints and led me to revert (and modify) that patch. I see acinclude.m4 allows for "--disable-gtk" which works... I had only tried "--disable-gtk2" beforehand. :-/ Could the PKGBUILD be updated to add these configure option hints (to use gtk3 instead, or remove gtk entirely)? Thanks again! :-)

Radioactiveman commented on 2023-12-18 19:13 (UTC)

@jwhickman: GTK3 can be enabled much simpler. Just pass "--enable-gtk3" to ./configure.

In case anyone wants to remove gtk2 and/or switch building to gtk3 (delete the first hunk for the former - no gtk), I made a patch for it:

Also update the depends in PKGBUILD as needed, add the patch file to the 'source', add a "'SKIP'" to 'sha256sums', and add the following above the 'pkgver() {':

prepare() {
  cd "$_pkgname"
  patch -Np1 < "../change-to-gtk3.patch"

You'll need to do the same to audacious-plugins-git, but can use the same patch file and all. :-) Fyi, pkg size with gtk3 was 891616 bytes, w/ no gtk was 810788.
