Why this package needs libmsym-git instead of libmsym?

I had problems building avogadro 1.2.0-6 because the default installed openbabel version is 3.x, but 2.x is actually needed...

First, I installed openbabel2, e.g.

Additionally, I added the following cmake parameters in PKGBUILD (based on -DOPENBABEL2_INCLUDE_DIR=/usr/include/openbabel-2.0 \ -DOPENBABEL2_LIBRARIES=/usr/lib/ \ -DOPENBABEL2_VERSION_MET=true

Maybe this helps somebody else.

Looks like the software is having problems to generate the extensions. On my Manjaro the software builds but when opening none of the extensions are loaded. Basically, Avogadro has no functionality at all.

I get the following :(

$ avogadro 
OpenGL capabilities found: 
        Double Buffering.
        Direct Rendering.
The _C_API object in the sip python module is invalid.
Could not initialize SIP API !

I guess Qt update breaks Avogadro -- I get message window "No engines loaded. It is unlikely this application will function correctly. Please correct this error." Console is full of "".so" failed to load. "The plugin '/usr/local/lib/avogadro/1_2/extensions/.so' uses incompatible Qt library. Expected build key "x86_64 linux g++-9.1.0 full-config", got "x86_64 linux g++-4 full-config""" Anyone knows how to fix that?

Is there any reason this depends specifically on the git version of libmsym?

berquist commented on 2018-09-07 03:07 (UTC)

It should be fixed now.

This is because Avogadro 1 comes packaged with libmsym, and the files are located in the same places as the actual libmsym package required by Avogadro 2. I'll see if removing the bundled libmsym and adding the package dependency here causes runtime problems.

There are file conflicts preventing avogadrolibs from updating if avogadro is installed.

berquist commented on 2018-03-14 14:13 (UTC)

That has been the case for quite some time, but there is enough functionality missing from Avogadro2 (such as displaying vibrational spectra) that it is necessary to keep this around.

Just found out that this version is no longer under development. The dev team has decided to rewrite the app. The new version is also in AUR:

berquist commented on 2017-01-11 05:06 (UTC)

I too am a bit surprised, but I really need this package, and the PKGBUILD needed some work, so if anyone has issues now with it please comment.

arojas commented on 2016-12-21 16:51 (UTC)

Because kalzium (which is the reason why this was in the repos) has been ported to Avogadro2.

Hi, why was it dropped from extra? (I am not saying it should be back, I am just surprised). Cheers
