@codazoa I had the same problem.

After running ddd using the terminal ($ ddd) I had multiple warning messages saying something like : "Cannot convert string "...." to type FontStruct"

After a couple of research and spending hours to find a fix, I've finally found this : "Some programs only work with bitmap fonts. Two major packages with bitmap fonts are available, xorg-fonts-75dpi and xorg-fonts-100dpi." (From the AUR : https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/xorg)

So basically, you need to run this command :

$ xdpyinfo | grep resolution

And get the xorg-fonts-XXdpi (with XX = 75 or 100) that is closer to the output value of the command above.

You can install a xorg-fonts package using pacman :

$ sudo pacman -S xorg-fonts-100dpi

Once you've done that, run :

$ sudo pacman -S gdb

Then reboot and everything should work.

@Azrael then you need to import it

I currently have a FAILED (unknown public key... ) error. Is there a PGP key to import prior to the installation ?

https://imgur.com/a/FKMIpFI After a fresh install of manjaro with GNOME DE, DDD's language is set to something other than english. Locale is set to en_US.utf8 and the only language support installed is english. Not sure if this is a bug in the most recent version but it worked in manjaro KDE just 2 weeks ago.

TheDcoder commented on 2021-02-03 19:20 (UTC)

The fonts in DDD are somehow using the wrong configuration for me, they look bad in general. I made a forum thread about it and I'd appreciate any help!

CyrIng commented on 2020-04-18 19:59 (UTC)

It works great, thank you

is this package still maintained?

Yes, I just adopted and patched it, solving the friends compilation error

confirm: https://github.com/Programatic/ddd works like a charm in open Motif while the AUR package does not build.

@kaptoxic I used the fix @0xjmz supplied and put it up here in the PKGBUILD and .SRCINFO: https://github.com/Programatic/ddd It installs fine for me now, you can update it if you want.

0xjmz commented on 2019-07-13 09:31 (UTC)

I applied a patch found here http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?41997 which simply "emulates" default values. It compiles and works.

kernelisstrong commented on 2019-07-10 08:14 (UTC)

No i don't know how to fix it but probably gcc-9.1 just builds on a higher C++ standard so you could try changing the standard and check if that fixes it.@kaptoxic

kaptoxic commented on 2019-07-09 22:05 (UTC)

Do you have an idea how to fix it perhaps?

kernelisstrong commented on 2019-07-07 07:38 (UTC)

Could you fix the building for gcc-9.1? @kaptoxic

Canopti commented on 2019-07-02 06:51 (UTC)

Does not compile with gcc-9.1

gczago commented on 2019-03-31 18:39 (UTC)

I'm new in Arch Linux world so I don't even know where I start to install DDD without using pacman. How can I do it? Is it hard to learn? I need the debugger for my faculty and I don't know how to use another one.

kaspyr commented on 2019-03-27 22:03 (UTC)

Appreciate you posting the key!

CyrIng commented on 2018-10-19 22:13 (UTC)

This PKG is working fine.

If you have this error: "unknown public key 6656C593E5158D1A", you need to get the key with this command:

gpg --recv-keys 4B286694DE99D517AA8DFF2D6656C593E5158D1A

The trust is already defined in the PKGBUILD.

You can then build and install the package with: makepkg -si

I have the same problem:

gpg instructions does not make any difference; still unable to update.

james commented on 2017-12-01 20:24 (UTC)

@Jkx gpg --recv-keys 6656C593E5158D1A gpg --edit-key 6656C593E5158D1A trust 3 quit Run makepkg -si again

Jkx commented on 2017-12-01 10:28 (UTC)

Same on manjaro. Packager signature is wrong.
