This doesn't follow the git source? Maybe i'll just create darkplaces-git for my purposes.

Thanks, I'll try again when I get some time (I'll be two weeks far from my PC starting tomorrow).

chungy commented on 2012-08-15 21:15

You need the dependency from the AUR as well; I highly recommend a program such as packer or yaourt to install AUR packages (many have rather large dependency trees on other AUR packages).

Doesn't build:

Thanks, the lowercase trick works. I've got yet another question : is there a way to configurate Darkplaces to use modern WASD controls with Quake 1 instead of the default ones ?

chungy commented on 2011-12-18 00:06

You need to make sure that your directory and file names are all lower-case. You should have an id1 directory with at least pak0.pak inside it (the retail version of Quake also has pak1.pak for the other three episodes).

hellpe commented on 2011-12-17 16:40

I just copied my ID1 folder to /usr/share/quake/, but Darkplaces still tells me there is "missing or unlocatable content/data". What did I do wrong ?

Another updated package that fixes the desktop launcher:

I've made an updated package if anybody's interested:

Last version is from june 2011 :

@mjr4077au: try removing those spaces before EOF in darkplaces.install. anyway this has nothing to do with the package and is completely harmless.

Anonymous comment on 2010-06-23 14:01

Upon installation via Pacman, I get this error:

/tmp/alpm_TOlEmi/.INSTALL: line 12: warning: here-document at line 2 delimited by end-of-file (wanted `EOF')
/tmp/alpm_TOlEmi/.INSTALL: line 13: syntax error: unexpected end of file
/tmp/alpm_TOlEmi/.INSTALL: line 13: warning: syntax errors in . or eval will cause future versions of the shell to abort as Posix requires
sh: post_install: command not found
error: command failed to execute correctly

Package seemed to compile fine from what I saw. Any ideas?

chungy commented on 2010-06-06 18:30

For compatibility with some mods, this would be best to depend on libjpeg6 and have a "sed -i -e '1i DP_LINK_TO_LIBJPEG=1' makefile" line right before building. This makes it so you don't get messages of "Found libjpeg version 80, expected 62" (or something of that sort) when using JPEGs :-)

Arkham commented on 2010-06-04 08:44

Oh, it must have been a once-in-a-lifetime-problem :)
I've added some more information in the install file, in order to make the desktop file work; instead of adding two different desktop files, I'd prefer to let the user create a link to the desired one. In this way, the menus won't get too messy ;)

jose1711 commented on 2010-06-03 15:29

20100408 also compiles fine on my system. jose

hatred commented on 2010-06-02 13:01

I compiled 20100408 without troubles... What is errors that you have?

Arkham commented on 2010-06-01 15:49

There are a couple of compiling errors that I haven't been able to fix yet. Has anybody of you guys succeeded in doing that?

jose1711 commented on 2010-05-26 19:09

bump.. is this still maintained?
