4.0.15 is now out.

AxPU commented on 2018-01-18 21:29

The fldigi site says "Do not user version 4.0.14!" The sources for the current AUR package 4.0.13 are not easily available too so we have to wait for the next version it seems.

I'm not yet sure regarding the dependencies. I did check that in the past but it might have changed. Will have a closer look but that may take a bit longer.

not_anonymous commented on 2018-01-05 11:52

With the current version and PKGBUILD; the resulting binary requires 'libpulse' to be added to the deps array. ALSO; libsamplerate is already in the dep. tree, so it is redundant in the deps. array. (It is supplied through portaudio.) FINALLY; hamlib seems to be required in the dep array. (In fact it may not be needed. I am not sure on this at this time, as I have not tested a compile without hamlib extent.)

kbeckmann commented on 2017-10-19 16:55

New version is out, 4.0.11. Please update PKGBUILD.


AxPU commented on 2017-06-27 19:49

Well it is still checked as optional when building but that might not be current, who knows. I will switch portaudio to a dependency.

petris commented on 2017-06-25 14:44

It appears that 4.0.5 needs to have "portaudio" as a required dependency (it's currently optional); it compiles correctly after adding it as a dependency in the PKGBUILD file.

Here's the error:

CXX misc/fldigi-xmlrpc.o
In file included from ./include/audio_alert.h:8:0,
from ./include/confdialog.h:658,
from misc/xmlrpc.cxx:80:
./include/ fatal error: portaudio.h: No such file or
#include <portaudio.h>

not_anonymous commented on 2017-02-08 17:17

I've uploaded a new package; flxmlrpc. It allows fldigi to have an xmlrpc connection to other applications. (An example is the latest tlf package.)

These changes should be made to this PKGBUILD;
- xmlrpc-c is NOT a correct (opt)depends for this package!! i.e. Please remove it.
- '--with-flxmlrpc' must be added to the './configure' command to enable the xmlrpc functionality.
- add 'flxmlrpc' to the 'depends=()' array, as it must be extent during compile to compile in xmlrpc functionality.

New version, 3.23.17 sha512: 362e57e14fa1a05ea4fdd2415996117af47878c37beb4d63e2d4ab57ca7f20e0b47c49b69bf35fcd7a8e7558c1e6329785087c8bcfcf8b8958f197af3c8381bb

int_0xFF commented on 2016-08-07 22:41

fldigi has been updated to 3.23.13 on 2016-08-06. The URL also appears to have changed so this package is currently uninstallable. Bumping the version, url, and hash and it installs using the following URL:

maze commented on 2016-02-14 08:28

Hamlib has been upgraded to 3.x, please test.

AxPU commented on 2016-01-26 21:41

It seems like this is the beta track. I've updated to one of the .07 version because of and "out of date" notification and that's it. It does not help that the sourceforge page is quite ambiguous as well

3.23.07 is out and stable now but you won't be notified of the update because all the AUR helpers think it is older than the beta versions you are already running. Well - update manually in that case. I will then update to 3.23.08 only when it is stable and the tarball stays available.

ronoverdrive commented on 2016-01-23 19:24

The Dev seems to be a bad habit of deleting source tarballs. Version was updated to 18 hours ago and the current PKGBUILD gets a 404 error on preventing it from building.

Also FYI FLDigi does build and function on armv7a as well if anyone was interested in using this on ALARM with their Raspberry Pi2 or ARM-based Chromebooks.

ronoverdrive commented on 2016-01-06 23:31 has been released and the source is unavailable resulting in a build error. Until the maintainer updates just edit the PKGBUILD and change the version to and replace the checksum with 'SKIP' for the time being.

phillid commented on 2015-11-22 02:59

3.23.05 is now out and PKGBUILD isn't updated, so those of you trying to build, just update the version field in your PKGBUILD

AxPU commented on 2015-03-24 19:58

Thanks for the out-of-date notificatin. Am currently on the road. The PKGBUILD will have to wait until next week..

AxPU commented on 2014-12-08 01:11

Oh my! I should have ckecked first. New version of fldigi just out, problem fixed :)

AxPU commented on 2014-12-08 01:00

Thank you I have added the sed command into the PKGBUILD. It does build at least once now and works. I'd think building twice would fail at the sed command but I did not try that. One can always start from a clean directory to circumvent such a problem.

Hope the issue will be fixed with the next fldigi release

rcf commented on 2014-12-02 22:51

Per the issue is a conflict between a method in Fl_Widget and a function in icons.h; until a new version is released adding

sed -i 's/\bset_active\b/set_active__/g' ./src/misc/*.cxx ./src/widgets/*.cxx ./src/dialogs/*.cxx ./src/include/*.h

before ./configure allows the package to build by hackishly renaming that function.

rcf commented on 2014-12-02 21:04

Because the only breaking change to the API was the introduction of the set_active() method in Fl_Widget, simply adding

sed -i 's/\bset_active\b/set_active__/g' src/misc/*.cxx /src/widgets/*.cxx src/dialogs/*.cxx src/include/*.h

before ./configure will enable the package to build by hackishly renaming the standalone set_active() function.

AxPU commented on 2014-11-23 21:05

Yes I can reproduce the error. The fltk libraries have been updated a few days ago and it seems that the error is related to this.

I am investigating but I think there is not much I can do at the moment except waiting for an updated fldigi.

Ideas are of course welcome

minorsecond commented on 2014-11-23 00:00

Hey all,

Getting an error when trying to compile FLDIGI. Been happening for 3-4 days now.

Any idea how to fix this?

ormandj commented on 2014-10-31 00:36

Thank you for the quick update, I had edited the PKGBUILD manually (just changed version numbering) in the meantime and built my own package after flagging this one for being out of date. I can say I did not have an issue moving from your previous version to the new regarding configuration files, so it might be specific to some settings. Great work with the quick update!

AxPU commented on 2014-10-30 20:11

For your information:

I had to delete the fldigi configuration in /home/username/.fldigi to be able to start the new version. Otherwise I ran into errors and the application did not start.

Maybe it would be possible to safe and then import the old config but I did not bother to try and just set it up again using the assistant.

Just so that you know if this issue hits you!

AxPU commented on 2014-10-29 23:23

I've built already but it does not run yet. There is some error that I'm still chasing, let's see before upload

AxPU commented on 2014-02-02 20:55

New Version 3.21.78

AxPU commented on 2013-11-18 23:53

Updated to 3.21.77

adx commented on 2013-09-08 17:03

The only change I would make would be to change the optdepend to xmlrpc-c. Otherwise it looks good. I also just uploaded a package for flrig.

AxPU commented on 2013-09-03 22:41

Just de-orphaned and upgraded to current. Not yet changed anything in the PKGBUILD since it works.

Please add hints and suggestions

chuser commented on 2013-08-13 09:58

3.21.73 now available on w1hkj website

u2ix commented on 2013-06-19 21:39

@KD0SKH: I checked the link, it's still up. Please don't flag the package as "out-of-date" if you have just problems building it. If you have further problems building the package please write a detailed problem description in a comment.

Hibou commented on 2013-06-19 03:29

I cannot access the website to even begin building the package.

swiftgeek commented on 2013-03-01 23:18

It's impossible for me to compile it with asciidoc in the system.
Also - 3.21.68

ur6lad commented on 2012-12-23 19:03

I've leaved cty.patch only and moved some dependencies to optional.

qs9rx commented on 2012-12-20 23:10

The patch does not seem needed anymore. So updating the PKGBUILD would just be bumping the version number and adding the current checksum. Please update or abandon the package so someone else can take it.

lagagnon commented on 2012-11-28 23:55

Tried to compile with bosco's new PKGBUILD. It built fine but launching fldigi throws this error:

libpng warning: Application built with libpng-1.4.12 but running with 1.5.13

Any ideas how to fix this?

Anonymous comment on 2012-08-23 16:09

Updated bosco's PKGBUILD for 3.21.50

Anonymous comment on 2012-01-24 02:45

I made a PKGBUILD for the latest version and made the option dependencies optional. It compiles with the latest fltk, you can find it here:

Anonymous comment on 2011-11-11 05:30

Found the issue... change fltk to fltk-stable... an AUR pkg.

Anonymous comment on 2011-11-11 04:43

I think the problem may have to do with 64bit... but I have no 32bit box to test with...

ur6lad commented on 2011-11-07 20:12

I can fix `short` issue. But I can't solve `undefined reference to `Fl_Text_Selection::set_rectangular(int, int, int, int)'`.

Anonymous comment on 2011-11-07 15:23

This is *mad* out of date.

Anonymous comment on 2011-07-20 12:43

Well, as a temporary solution "fltk-stable" package can be installed ( It provides FLTK 1.1.x branch, which devs think more stable.

Anonymous comment on 2011-07-19 10:16

@torn: Looks like you are right. Downgrading only fltk from 1.3.0 to 1.1.10 makes fldigi compile, and it even starts. Note that the problem still persists in the newest 3.21.12 version. I've managed to solve problems with these errors, however, there are some linking issues.

Anonymous comment on 2011-07-13 12:28

Dear ur6lad,

the problem with xmlrpc-c-abyss is now solved (thank you), but still there's an error while compiling fldigi:

CXX fldigi-Panel.o
widgets/Panel.cxx: In member function ‘int Panel::orgx()’:
widgets/Panel.cxx:40:21: error: cannot convert ‘int*’ to ‘short int*’ in initialization

widgets/Panel.cxx:194:20: error: cannot convert ‘int*’ to ‘short int*’ in initialization
make[2]: *** [fldigi-Panel.o] Error 1

I didn't investigate this, but I think this might be a problem with fltk-1.3.0.

ur6lad commented on 2011-07-06 19:36

Thanks, I'm investigating this problem.

Anonymous comment on 2011-07-06 16:39


at the moment it's o impossible to install fldigi as xmlrpc-c-abyss doesn't compile anymore (I've already reported the problem there, but I've got no reply). Also, fldigi 3.21.12 is out.

ur6lad commented on 2011-06-22 21:28

AxPU commented on 2010-08-03 15:41

I have pasted an update PKGBUILD for fldigi 3.20.22 - you can just follow the link to get it:

AxPU commented on 2010-08-03 15:30

The PKGBUILD still wants to apply the libpng patch which of course must fail since there is no patch included.
Please remove the "patch" line in the PKGBUILD file as suggested by SamuelJones (

Furthermore - The donwload for fldigi 3.20.15 has been removed from the original download location. As of now only
3.20.17 to 3.20.22 are available - Version 3.20.22 does compile and work just fine with your supplied PKGBUILD file after
removing the "patch" line. Please update.

ur6lad commented on 2010-06-14 20:57


Tnx to SamuelJones!

Anonymous comment on 2010-06-13 18:26

working PKGBUILD for the latest fldigi (3.20.15) doesnt include the libpng patch, but it seems to work for me anyway.
