Version 7.3 segfault problem has been fixed.

Failure in check() indicates that the setup script has been changed. Please flag the package out of date if this happens.

If the application reports a new version, you can OK the update and it will make and install an updated Arch package. (You will need your sudo password.)

@FFF: The Manjaro Stable branch still uses libtiff version 4.4.0-4. I think it will be upgraded in a few weeks. In the meantime you can simply change the Build-files ("PKGBUILD" e.g. in Pamac when installing the cewe-fotobuch package). -> Change: depends=('libx11' 'libjpeg' 'curl' 'wget' 'snappy' 'libxcrypt-compat' 'libtiff5') to depends=('libx11' 'libjpeg' 'curl' 'wget' 'snappy' 'libxcrypt-compat' 'libtiff') (just replace "libtiff5" with "libtiff").

After the installation is complete, you also need to change it in the following file to get the updates: "/var/tmp/pamac-build-YOURUSERNAME/cewe-fotobuch/PKGBUILD" -> Then you can use the update function inside Cewe.

But keep in mind to change these settings back to "libtiff5" when your system gets updated. Happy wife, happy life. :-)

Hi all, I got the same problem (running Manjaro). I only get offered libtiff in Version 4.4.0-4 (official extra), so I can't install the recommended version 4.5.0. Where can I get that? It is kind of urgent, bc my wife expects a fotobook for her birthday ;o) Much obliged!

christian-becker commented on 2023-01-11 19:46 (UTC)

Okay, you are right, regarding all up-to-date packages, it is working with "libtiff5".

My system still had "libtiff (v4.4.0-4)"(Repository: Extra) which also provides "". With the updated version of "libtiff (v4.5.0)" it provides "". Then "libtiff5" (AUR) can be installed without conflict.

DonJaime commented on 2023-01-11 15:21 (UTC)

libtiff5 is currently required because as from version 4.5.0 the arch libbtiff package provides, while cewe looks for There is no conflict if the system is up to date.

christian-becker commented on 2023-01-11 09:32 (UTC)

IMHO the PKGBUILD "depend=" should use "libtiff" and not "libtiff5". Many other applications depend on libtiff; using libtiff5 will produce a package conflict.

Version 7.3 is available via automatic update, but not (yet) via the download link in the PKGBUILD. Auto update to 7.3 now works, but the application then segfaults for me. Does it work for others?

For the above reasons I don't want to update the version number to 7.3 yet.

Parameters for Italy are now in the PKGBUILD, which will now not fail to download variants with a dot in their name. (You were not wrong, lorcap.)

lorcap commented on 2022-04-24 11:52 (UTC)

Hi there. I'd like to contribute to the Italian localization. setup_CEWE_IT_Foto_World.tgz is available as (see download page), which is not supported by your script. Am I wrong?

Hi @ManU oder @DonJaime,

it would be nice, if you could add in the description or in a pinned comment here and here: where the difference to the relative other package is. I was completely confused (and still am, when trying to use the DM download-install-software) ...

it seems to me, that the fotobuch can only create books while the fotowelt can create "other photo products" as well.

A comment with a link to the relative other package would be great. Thank you!

@DonJaime : It was a trouble with yay ; I could install with success by makepkg, and pacman -U, after editing PKGBUILD with french parameters.

Thank you very much.

Also, I submitted that cewe-monlivrephoto-fnac and cewe-monlivrephoto-fr must be deleted
