+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.

Hey everyone,
This package now includes support for netgen. I'm going to file a delete request for freecad-netgen-git soon. If you experience any problems feel free to report them here :)

This package now builds against opencascade7. The freecad-qt5 package is going to follow soon - the freecad-netgen-git package not so soon because I'm having troubles with netgen. The only version of netgen that supports opencascade 7.1 is the master branch of their git repo which isn't supported by freecad. Gonna have a look at how it's done in the daily ppa of freecad in the coming days.

Hi, for everyone interested in a occ 7.1 build.
There are some problems with the opencascade7 aur package, I already contacted the maintainer. If you can't wait you can try the following two packages from my github page: and (kind of the experimental version of this package)
