Thanks saxonbeta, you saved the day :)

@Tempel, the problem is the latest VTK package which is now compiled against QT5. I have uploaded a new vtk package linked against QT4

I've been neglectful, and haven't tried to build it for a while; it's not building for me now either. I hadn't anticipated such trouble from Qt5, but I'm working on it now.

The build always fails on my system because it's trying to use the Qt5 moc binary for ElmerGUI, which uses Qt4.

How are you getting this to build?

@Tempel, I have disowned the package, enjoy!

The qwt issue has been fixed as of 6.1.2-2 (see I've updated my PKGBUILD to match (again, see Note that you may need to delete src/elmerfem/CMakeCache.txt before building, otherwise it might try to retain old options.

saxonbeta, do you want to stay as maintainer of this package? I would be happy to take it over.

m24kus: no, it's not supposed to do that. See my earlier comments from 2015-02-22, or the PKGBUILD I posted at (which, by the way, I just updated to build ElmerPost).

Is $pkgbuild supposed to prefix the path's in build()? No other package I looked up does this.





fixed the ckoresko secound error for me.

I've managed to partially work around the qwt issue by setting an extra option on the cmake command: -DQWT_LIBRARY=/usr/lib/qwt/

That allows Elmer to build, but the library still isn't found at runtime. Fortunately, that's easy to work around just by setting the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/qwt. This has been reported as a bug ( ) and will hopefully be fixed soon with an update to qwt.

My mostly-working PKGBUILD can be found at:
but don't forget to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH yourself.

I copy qwt .so's in /usr/lib :
cp /usr/lib/qwt/* /usr/lib/.

and modify the PKGBUILD in build section :

-DELMER_SOLVER_HOME=/usr/share/elmersolver -DELMER_INSTALL_LIB_DIR=/usr/lib

Seems to work with makepkg and pacman -U
