For what it's worth, getting it to run turns out to be fairly easy. I added the following two lines to the end of the package() section:

cd "$pkgdir/usr/lib/GNUstep"

ln -s ../../share/ Cenon

Problem is, now it starts but segfaults as soon as I try to do much of anything. I do notice that the contents of the directory built don't entirely match the contents of the analogous directory in the .deb that can be downloaded, which may have something to do with it. However, the .deb uses the same symlinking trick, so that hopefully is at least a little helpful.

Quick hacky patch applied. I will clean that up more tomorrow. And while the build completes, still more work is needed to make Cenon actually run.

I was not able to find any email from you but spam is automatically deleted after 30 days. I will check my spam more often.

Sent you email August 22, check your spam. So do you like to keep this package?

keenerd commented on 2016-10-13 00:18

Sorry, I don't follow the forum.

Try emailing people next time. We have our emails at the top of every pkgbuild for a reason.

Thanks for chasing down that patch. Should have that applied shortly.

I put the correct md5sum in the PKGBUILD file, It compiles fully, but it still fails to run. Cenon give error that I need to install the libraries. However, they seem to be where they are suppose to be.

Maybe we should anyway, since they obviously update the PDF every now and then.

Alister.Hood commented on 2013-07-01 12:02

Even if I skip that check, at the moment I get this error:

gcc47.patch is missing

Finally got something to build. Seems a bit glitchy, so debug symbols are left in. Happy stracing.

keenerd commented on 2011-07-12 22:55

The 3.9.4 update has been a royal pain to build. Anyone else have success?

keenerd commented on 2011-01-23 21:02

Updated to 3.9.3. Compiles and runs fine here, though reports its version as 3.9.2.

You'll have to provide more details.

MrBlister commented on 2011-01-23 19:01

MD5sum is wrong for
However, correcting this still results in a compile error.
Ver 3.9.3 is out. This compiles but doesn't run, complains:
"Did not find correct version of backend (libgnustep-back-018.bundle)"
