Would anybody be interested in freecad git package with python3 and qt5? I have working PKGBUILD but I'm not sure whether it's worth uploading it to AUR to have yet another freecad package.

You can remove -DBUILD_FEM_NETGEN=1 from PKGBUILD or use the Appimage pre_17 from freecad release page.

The AppImage runs for me, but Freecad do not yet have an AppImage of the latest version (0.17).

+1 @andrejr for the appImage idea.
I still think that keeping these AURs going is important too. I look forward to a day when this compile process will be seamless. In the meantime I want to appreciate the maintainers and volunteers for their work nonetheless.

StlTransfer.hxx isnt anymore in opencascade. You need to install an older version
git clone
Edit PKGBUILD and change pkgver to pkgver=7.1.0
I think you also need to set all MD5SUMS to skip, or find out the right one...
That did it for me. Don't forget to add opencascade7 (and opencascade7-docs) to the ignore list in pacman.conf
an APPIMAGE would be great... compiling FreeCad is still a pain... very much extreme large and complex dependencies...

Has anyone considered making a freecad-bin package with the appimage provided on the website?

I'm new to appimages, and couldn't seem to run it (it segfaulted), maybe someone more experienced can look at that?

can't compile netgen, i get :
libsrc/occ/occgeom.cpp:18:10: fatal error: StlTransfer.hxx: No such file or directory

Any idea ?

rpath.path is not needed any more as the fix is in the git repo.

Hi s218, sorry it took so long, was on holiday :)
Please send me a more detailed description of the bug that includes the exact steps that trigger the segfault.

Edit: If you encounter segfaults it's always a good idear to rebuild the package before reporting. Updated dependencies often cause the program to segfault ;)

The program is collected, launched, but when you try to create a Patch crashes. Collected in Opencus, Ubuntu is working fine.
