Haven't tried 3.2.5 and 3.3, but 3.2.4 has a serious graphics bug where the scrollbar doesn't show until you resize the window. Extremely annoying!

@promike, you need to use the package conan1 instead of conan in the makedepends section. Also make sure that python-node-semver <= 0.8.1.
My PKGBUILD for 3.2.5:

promike commented on 2023-04-04 09:21 (UTC)

It cannot be compiled:

usage: conan config [-h] {home,install} ... conan config: error: argument subcommand: invalid choice: 'init' (choose from 'home', 'install') ERROR: Exiting with code: 2 ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare(). Aborting...

Please add the line "sed -i 's/#THEME_PREFS/THEME_PREFS/g' src/Experimental.cmake" to prepare(). This will restore the functionality associated with custom themes.

@natrio: But why "pkgrel=1" wasn't changed after all?

IMHO the package version should only be changed if the changes should lead to an re-installation of the package.

See e.g. : "As fixes and additional features are added to the PKGBUILD that influence the resulting package, the pkgrel should be incremented by 1", so it should only be changed if the changes in the PKGBUILD file are making a differences in the build result.

@evorster, thank you for updates! But why "pkgrel=1" wasn't changed after all?

I'll maintain it for a while, as I use it in it's current form.

Once Audacity switches over to another widget toolkit, we can let this one dissolve.

I give up and disown this package. It's time consuming and frustrating to figure out how Audacity's Conan/cmake build system works if it doesn't work :-(

No, thats not true: the official Audacity 3.1.3 AppImage from upstream (*) uses gtk2. AFAIK Audacity GUI does work best with gtk2 and has some glitches under gtk3, at least last time when I checked it.


dvzrv commented on 2022-07-26 09:13 (UTC)

Given that upstream prefers gtk3 over gtk2, gtk2 being EOL, wxgtk2 not being provided by Arch Linux anymore and Arch Linux eventually removing it from the repository, is there any additional benefit for providing this package alongside the one in [community]?
