Hello, I changed the dependencies to use mksh instead of the original ksh (the build is not a big mess, and it's compatible).

@bbaovanc: Yes, I can rename the sh script.

Update: it works for me now on the latest commit. Another thing I noticed: can /usr/bin/ be renamed to something less general, like maybe startcdesession?

I had to install opensp just like strangeautomaton said (it should be a git dependency probably). But then I got another error near the end:

collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

Has anyone else seen this? What should I do?

Cknight70: I don't have onsgmis on my build system at all as far as I can tell... but if it requires it ( perhaps a new dependency in the git sources??? ) you shouldn't need to install openjade, you should be able to get away with just the opensp package which is the part of it that contains onsgmis.

When trying to build it said onsgmls was missing, installing OpenJade from the Arch repos it built

I temporarily took over to update it with a working PKGBUILD... I've tested it and it loads. yjftsjthsd you were about 95% there in getting it to work, it was just missing some dependencies so that it would actually build and run.

The package is out of date, because attempting to build a newer version results in errors. Since I have not managed to produce a PKGBUILD that builds the autotools version, it has stayed out of date. Since you filed an orphan request "Too long no update", I assume that you are interested in providing that update by fixing the issues with building the autotools version of CDE.

If the packages is not out of date, it should be marked as not out of date, packagesing error should be reported on the comments instead of flagging.

yjftsjthsd commented on 2021-12-08 06:20 (UTC)

@malacology feel free to fix/update. My attempts so far may be found at but result in a package that still references the build directory

yjftsjthsd commented on 2021-07-20 03:48 (UTC)

I apologize in advance for the delay in this next version; switching to autoconf will take a bit more effort than just a version bump.

They've added the ksh93 submodule to the repo.
I got it working with this (sorry if it's wrong - just copied the submodule example from the wiki).
Could you please update it?

PS: Package will also not build without xorg-bdftopcf installed. It's not mentioned in the required packages, but it is a part of the the xorg package group. Maybe add the group as a dependency?

yjftsjthsd commented on 2019-11-19 21:10 (UTC)

Well this is awkward. I did get it working, but now it won't build. Errors reproducable in my normal setup and on sourcehut ( I strongly suspect that upstream broke under us (joys of being a *-git package), but haven't yet tried building one commit at a time back to check.
