ddccontrol: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I recompiled, but no luck.

@Ashark: ???

# pacman -Ql | grep i2c-dev.ko
linux-lts /usr/lib/modules/4.9.22-1-lts/kernel/drivers/i2c/i2c-dev.ko.gz

Maybe add i2c-tools as a dependency?
Because without it (it contains i2c-dev kernel module) the programm cannot detect monitors.

Yeah, this is latest official stable release (as [name]-[version].tar.bz2) which still works. If you want git try: ddccontrol-git. If you want splitted packages in *-git, I can modify (if orphaned).

Wouldn't it be better to switch to latest git instead of the ancient 2006 release?

Or perhaps even better some of the kind-of-modernized forks on github

bastelfreak: you are right :) thx

3ED_O: Your point is valid, but: It is not possible to build the PKGBUILD without gtk+. Adding it ad a make-depend should be totally fine?

3ED_0 commented on 2016-05-01 11:17

gtk is in gddccontrol. I don't like not separated packages. If there is gui and cli, they should be in separated packages.

BTW. The same if there was tray/applet autostart included, like in firewalld is. For example in fedora you have packages for: daemon, cli, gui, tray-icon. Arch have one package for everything. On old desktop with low ram, this python applet eat some around 100MB and do nothing. Who mention about headless server and tons of dependies? Unnecessary gtk libs with kde desktop. Etc.

also gtk+ seems to be missing as a dependency:

I needed to install libxml2 to get this to work, else the build fails with message: configure: error: xml2-config not found, please install libxml2, available at

Can libxml2 be added to the dependencies in the PKGBUILD file?
