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)

Hi everyone,
I'm the new maintainer of this package. It's now up

/opt/freecad because some modules depend on the
default folder structure (see

Dear eworm,

Please put the following into package() so that the .desktop icon can be drawn:

install -m644 -D ${srcdir}/freecad/src/Gui/Icons/freecad.svg -t ${pkgdir}/usr/share/icons

Yours Truly,

It looks like the pkgver() here is not working properly. My system attempts to upgrade the package even if there have been no new commits. I think the tags in the upstream repo are causing the issue. Maybe we could just use the total number of commits in pkgver() like so:

pkgver() {
cd freecad/
printf "r%s.%s" "$(git rev-list --count HEAD)" "$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"
