@OOFscr @bebR, sorry for the late response. I've fixed the desktop file.

bebR commented on 2019-06-19 19:29

@greyltc please fix the .desktop issue or disown the package.

bebR commented on 2019-05-21 12:27

I have the same issue than OOFscr, I had to change the .desktop to make it work.

And I agree with Saku, the git clone is extremely long, almost 20 minutes.

Please update the freecad.desktop.

Maybe change the pkgbuild to pull only depth 1 and not all the repository which is huge.

For me, the current freecad.desktop file prevents correct opening of files in xfce. I had to change: Path=/usr/lib/freecad

This package has been updated to use Python 3. Please leave a comment if you find something broken.

depends missing qt5-webengine

@dtbaumann thanks. I've incorporated your suggestion and some from the freecad and freecad-python3-git packages into the following PKGBUILD which uses python3.

Please give it a try. If there are no problems, I'll update the freecad-git PKGBUILD (this package) in a few days.
