Rebuilding ckb-next against the latest version of quazip should resolve the issue.

Concerning the missing quazip.h library, see this github issue:

temporary solution: sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

The recent upgrade caused this version of ckb-next to stop working. If the daemon is active the keyboard does not work, which means you are doing every thing with the on screen keyboard and the mouse, not fun. The other version ckb-next-git does work.

I tried unloading this and recompiling but it still did not work.

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but it appears libxkbcommon and libxkbcommon-x11 v1.0.2 causes ckb-next to crash on start up after pressing any key on the keyboard. I noticed core-dumps referencing these two packages after ckb-next tray-applet loads on startup. The keyboard is still functioning after crash, and I can reload the applet manually.

Downgrading both packages fixes the bug.


Edit: I think it's just related to libxkbcommon-x11 v1.0.2. Upgrading libxkbcommon didn't cause any crash (just libxkbcommon-x11)

@tatokis: Thank you for the detailed explanation.

If libpulse is not installed during build, it complains:

That is intentional, since people didn't want to pull in pulse as a dependency. If we add pulse to makedepends, then it'll be installed no matter what. I've been wondering if there's a way to add it in makedepends and make it easy for people to disable it by editing the PKGBUILD.

This does not require libappindicator-gtk2 to display the icon, libappindicator-gtk3 works fine.

It only searches for the gtk2 version of appindicator (not appindicator3) [0], and only prefers it if certain conditions are met [1] [2]. You were most likely not using appindicator in the first place. It's also why it's optional. In the end, it doesn't matter, since appindicator support was removed in git. [3]

[0] [1] [2] [3]

If libpulse is not installed during build, it complains:

CMake Warning at src/animations/mviz/CMakeLists.txt:31 (message):
  Missing PulseAudio Simple API.  Not building mviz.

namcap complains about libpulse being in optdepends():

Dependency libpulse detected but optional (libraries ['usr/lib/', 'usr/lib/'] needed in files ['usr/bin/ckb-next', 'usr/lib/ckb-next-animations/mviz'])

I imagine it's being kept optional for those who don't want to install PulseAudio, but it should be at least in makedepends().

This does not require libappindicator-gtk2 to display the icon, libappindicator-gtk3 works fine.

depends=('quazip' 'hicolor-icon-theme')
makedepends=('git' 'cmake' 'libpulse')
optdepends=('libappindicator-gtk3: tray icon'

Thank you!

@mithrial Apologies, I committed the wrong thing and didn't even realise. Should be fixed now.

mithrial commented on 2020-08-06 09:42

The prepare function fails for me because it doesn't find the provided patch file (it's not copied into the source directory).

Adding the patch file to the list of sources will fix it:
