Hi @xantares. This software is not working with python3 yet. This is in the TODO list. But when it will be ready, this package will be updated for sure :).

Doesn't work for me.

Exception: PortMidi: `Bad pointer'
Exception Exception: Exception("PortMidi: `Bad pointer'",) in 'pypm.Input.__dealloc__' ignored

But fofix (without -git) works fine.

Seems to complain about "No module named MpoImagePlugin" now instead, latest commit d74ea79eef035581eb1b93d737be21860c359455.

After installing it crashes on launch, same goes for non git version:

Linkid commented on 2016-09-01 20:41 (UTC)

The dependency 'python2-fretwork-git' was added and some dependencies updated: - use Pillow instead of PIL - remove pyogg and pyvorbis - rename pyaudio to python2-pyaudio - add python2-opengl and gettext (optional). So, the package should build.

Please add python2-fretwork-git To the dependencies, as some shared code has been moved to this git repo :)

This depends on python2-cerealizer. Could you add it to the dependencies?

Linkid commented on 2015-07-12 15:28 (UTC)

Looks good to me.

Serra commented on 2014-12-29 14:38 (UTC)

The package does not build anymore. The directory src does not exists in the git repo anymore

mid-kid commented on 2014-01-11 13:02 (UTC)

This package also needs extra/glu to be able to build.

doorknob60 commented on 2013-11-17 22:26 (UTC)

I think I fixed it :D Pyxml apparently isn't required anymore, and it seems to work without it. I was able to build and run it.

doorknob60 commented on 2013-11-17 21:15 (UTC)

I'm not sure if the pyxml package exists anymore. Apperantly, it was old, unmaintained code, and I didn't find any articles about Arch, but I think Fedora dropped it: . I assume Arch must have done the same. You can try building it without the package, but that will probably fail. Unless they updated the Fofix code to run with a different library, it probably won't build unless someone makes a pyxml package (which I don't have time to mess with).

olejorgenb commented on 2013-11-17 21:01 (UTC)

pyxml package doesn't exist :(

commented on 2013-07-11 21:47 (UTC)

You should add 'ffmpeg' to depends. Build fails without it

McDoenerKing commented on 2013-05-14 08:16 (UTC)

missing dependency: soundtouch It doesn't compile for me without it. Starting it gives me just a black background.

doorknob60 commented on 2012-10-20 21:37 (UTC)

Fixed. Also fixed non -git fofix package.

nickl commented on 2012-10-19 08:47 (UTC)

A number of changes should be made to the PKGBUILD. Most important, the _gitroot should be: _gitroot="" as they've moved the main git url. also, should depend on: - python2-opengl - python2-pysqlite - python2-pygame - python2-imaging

doorknob60 commented on 2011-12-21 19:17 (UTC)

Yep, fixed.

rndstr commented on 2011-12-21 09:47 (UTC)

Shouldn't this depend on cython2 instead of cython? At least it no longer complained about missing Cython.Distutils as soon as I installed cython2.

commented on 2011-01-02 14:41 (UTC)

And pil is now python-imaging

commented on 2011-01-02 14:36 (UTC)

Since the switch to python3: python-numpy is now python2-numpy

doorknob60 commented on 2010-09-13 02:11 (UTC)

This package is now not architecture independent, as they added a couple C/C++ modules to improve performance (hence the requirement of cython). Just letting you guys know why it changed.

doorknob60 commented on 2010-07-11 08:41 (UTC)

This should be able to peacefully coexist with the fretsonfire-alarian-mod package, though your fofix.ini file in your home folder is used by both, so your settings might get messed up. This is a replacement of the out of date fofix-svn package (they switched to git a while back).
