had to change OPENJPEG_INCLUDE to OPENJPEG_INCLUDE=/usr/include/openjpeg-2.5. Maybe the PKGBUILD should be updated?

Spaceboi commented on 2021-01-23 21:21 (UTC)

Because openjpeg2 was upgraded to version 2.4 in December 2020 i needed to change the dirname in the PKGBUILD to /usr/include/openjpeg-2.4 in the line export OPENJPEG_INCLUDE=/usr/include/openjpeg-2.3 OPENJPEG_LIB=/usr/lib

@haawda Works for me now, thanks!

haawda commented on 2020-08-02 15:29 (UTC)

I reverted to 12.1.

zoidberg commented on 2020-08-02 10:49 (UTC)

It seems the latest stable version is still 12.1. The github page marks 12.2.2 (not 12.2) as a 'pre-release'.

@haawda The checksum in the PKGBUILD doesn't match the checksum for

$ sha256sum 

haawda commented on 2018-07-23 20:11 (UTC)

Thanks, fixed.

everythingfunct commented on 2018-07-23 16:34 (UTC)

I had to make the following changes in order to get my installation to work. It looks like the installation location and the script do not match.

  • Change line 2 in to cd /usr/*lib*/engauge-digitizer
  • Update the sha256sum in PKGBUILD to match that of the modified file

@haawda please fix the checksum

The sha256sum in the PKGBUILD for seems to be wrong. Can you check it?

shmilee commented on 2017-04-07 05:45 (UTC)

translations, engauge.qch, `Categories=Education;`, jpeg2000 and PDF support. All Done.

haawda commented on 2017-04-06 15:54 (UTC)

shmilee, I added you as co-maintainer. Feel free to upload your PKGBUILD here.

shmilee commented on 2017-04-06 08:34 (UTC) (edited on 2017-04-06 09:06 (UTC) by shmilee)

For jpeg2000 and PDF support, we should add this to `build()` export OPENJPEG_INCLUDE=/usr/include/openjpeg-2.1 OPENJPEG_LIB=/usr/lib export POPPLER_INCLUDE=/usr/include/poppler/qt5 POPPLER_LIB=/usr/lib qmake-qt5 "CONFIG+=jpeg2000 pdf" About the depends array: depends+=('openjpeg2' 'poppler-qt5') New PKGBUILD(I will delete it after you merge PKGBUILD)

shmilee commented on 2017-04-05 13:35 (UTC) (edited on 2017-04-05 14:43 (UTC) by shmilee)

Version 10.0 is out. And, the translations of this package are lost. `help` dir is not needed. We should use engauge.qch and engauge.qhc built by script `help/build`. Maybe, we can add `Categories=Education` to the desktop file.

Thx! worked

haawda commented on 2016-11-13 07:34 (UTC)

Weird, I first tried and it did not work for me. Then I switched to, and it worked. Now it is the other way around.

lorsch commented on 2016-11-12 15:32 (UTC)

It is accessible via

thx for the fast update. But the source link does not work.

haawda commented on 2016-01-04 07:30 (UTC)

Thanks, updated.

I noticed development has moved to github with a new version working with qt5 git diff output to make the PKGBUILD work with the new version (got to build, but haven't really looked to see if other changes make sense) --- a/PKGBUILD +++ b/PKGBUILD @@ -1,31 +1,35 @@ # Contributor: Stefan Husmann <> pkgname=engauge -pkgver=5.2 +pkgver=6.2 pkgrel=1 pkgdesc="A Digitizer for curves and scanned plots" -url="" +url="" arch=('i686' 'x86_64') license=('GPL') -depends=('qt4' 'fftw') -source=("$pkgver/${pkgname}_${pkgver}.tgz" "$pkgname.desktop") -md5sums=('2fbd9c81fa9e910f871560767bbb52bc' +depends=('qt5-tools' 'fftw' 'log4cpp') +optdepends=('libpng12: For reading png image files' + 'libjpeg-turbo: For reading jpeg image files' + 'openjpeg: For reading jpeg2000 image files' + ) +source=("$pkgver.tar.gz" "$pkgname.desktop") +md5sums=('26a5b3031c7d4a74382c6a7d7c6e9516' '53def24f20c3d0178d3cf1b8c574fe15') install=engauge.install build() { - cd $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver - qmake-qt4 + cd $srcdir/${pkgname}6-$pkgver + qmake-qt5 make } package() { - cd $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver + cd $srcdir/${pkgname}6-$pkgver install -Dm755 bin/$pkgname $pkgdir/usr/bin/$pkgname - install -Dm644 usermanual/animation.png \ + install -Dm644 help/animation.png \ $pkgdir/usr/share/icons/$pkgname.png install -d $pkgdir/usr/share/doc/$pkgname cp -r samples $pkgdir/usr/share/doc/$pkgname - cp -r usermanual $pkgdir/usr/share/doc/$pkgname + cp -r help $pkgdir/usr/share/doc/$pkgname install -Dm644 $srcdir/$pkgname.desktop \ $pkgdir/usr/share/applications/$pkgname.desktop }

jdarch commented on 2013-12-20 12:40 (UTC)

The 'Exec' line in the .desktop file might benefit from adding the command line option "-manual /usr/share/doc/engauge/usermanual" to it.

jdarch commented on 2013-12-20 11:31 (UTC)

Version 5.2 is available:

Dependency qt4

hseara commented on 2013-03-01 17:00 (UTC)

Please change dependency from qt to qt4. This is due to the new incorporation of qt5 as default. Right now the system cannot be updated due to this unless MP3DIAGS is removed.

commented on 2013-03-01 14:00 (UTC)

I think qt changed to extra/qt4 but engauge depends on qt and doesn't allow me to upgrade!

haawda commented on 2012-12-26 21:31 (UTC)

Sorry for the inconvenience.

aistrem commented on 2012-12-26 20:33 (UTC)

md5sum is not fixed. Must be 99be0d3853a754339924ad84a20b953c. In the URL "src_" should substitute "src-".

sirocco commented on 2012-12-26 03:55 (UTC)

Incorrect URL. Should be Should depend on the qt and not on the qt3. QTDIR PATH LDFLAGS should be changed?

please add this line in the build function: sed -i "s/stdlib\.h/unistd\.h/g" src/pointmatch.cpp otherwise won't compile. Thanks

thank you, added.

Can you please add a .desktop file, like this: ?
