@evorster Thanks for the heads up, I've updated the PKGBUILD with the new provides array.

Hi there! The system version of audacity provides a little more than just audacity, and when you want to replace it with the git version, it some packages complain. To fix that, change the provides section to:

I've added the new dependencies for Audacity and vst3sdk to the PKGBUILD. Apologies for the long delays as I've been pretty busy with IRL work.

Also need rapidjson at least as makedepends

VST3_SDK_DIR needs to be changed to /usr/src/vst3sdk.

Hello, I was trying to install this, but I get the following error when compiling: CMake Error at cmake-proxies/cmake-modules/Findvst3sdk.cmake:56 (message): Failed to build VST3SDK Call Stack (most recent call first): /home/notreallyeight/.cache/yay/audacity-git/src/build/find_package_include.cmake:18 (find_package) cmake-proxies/cmake-modules/AudacityDependencies.cmake:217 (include) CMakeLists.txt:572 (include)

What could be the cause? All the needed dependencies are installed at least from what I can see from the required dependencies.

@evorster Thanks for the suggestions, I've modified the PKGBUILD accordingly to build Audacity entirely against system libs. Turns out there was a audacity_conan_enabled CMake flag, so I set it to off and added the necessary dependencies.

Hi there! After some poking around, here are working build instructions:

prepare() {
mkdir -p build

build() {
 cd build
 cmake -G "Unix Makefiles" ../audacity \
    -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release \
    -Daudacity_use_ffmpeg=loaded \
    -Daudacity_lib_preference=system \
    -Daudacity_has_vst3=Off \
    -Daudacity_use_wxwidgets=local \
package() {
make -C build DESTDIR="${pkgdir}" install


There are serious issues with the way that this builds, though. Firstly, it creates a .conan directory in your home directory where it builds wxWidgets 3.1.3

Then, it links against wxWidgets against gtk2, which needs to be installed in your system. At least there are GUI on the plugins. :)

Also, vst3sdk does not build with conan, and it does not detect system vst3sdk if installed, so vst3 plugins are disabled with this build.

If anyone knows how to build tell build scripts to build against wxWidgets installed in a custom location, then we can build against wxgtk3-dev-314-opt from AUR. (please post a comment here)

Long term I am chatting to the fine folk at Audacity to see if we can make the latest version of wxWidgets work properly in Audacity, and to detect system vst3sdk.

jlocash commented on 2022-07-24 19:46 (UTC)

To disable conan and force the build to use system libraries use -Daudacity_conan_enabled=Off -Daudacity_obey_system_dependencies=On when running cmake. You can then build against the wxWidgets you have installed (built for GTK2 or 3).

Note: if building with gcc-11, the build will fail to build against wxWidgets > 3.1.4 because of a change in wxEvtHandler that was introduced in wxWidgets-3.1.5.
