Great, thanks @lonaowna, you're a co-maintainer now!

lonaowna commented on 2019-03-15 15:35

@greyltc I could also help out. It might be also be time to look into merging with freecad-python3-git which seem to works pretty nice now (freecad has also switched to python3).

@zegentz, would you like to co-maintain this?

Please excuse my ignorance, but why the version part from the package name, i.e. freecad-python3-git-0.17.r2599.g87bf7094a-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz, differs with the version info provided by the "About Freecad" menu: (redacted) ... Version: 0.18.15455 (Git) ... Hash: ca7dd2e1c369dc23d2a79b3eb5ac6381dfd54990 ... It's just curiosity, maybe someone here knows... Thanks

Oh my, this was a !!FUN!! package to get to work.

Soooo, you guys are missing a couple dependencies when it comes to pyside and shiboken (and a couple others). I can't tell you which, because I ended up installing every AUR package with those two in it's name:

$ pacman -Q | grep "coin\|shiboken\|webkit\|webengine\|pyside\|qtpy"
coin 3.1.3-18
coin-docs 3.1.3-18
kdewebkit 5.56.0-1
pyqtwebengine-common 5.12-2
pyside-tools-common 0.2.15-3
pyside2 5.12.1-1
pyside2-tools 5.12.1-1
python-pyqtwebengine 5.12-2
python-pyside 1.2.4-9
python-pyside-common 1.2.4-9
python-pyside-tools 0.2.15-3
python-shiboken 1.2.4-4
python-shiboken2 5.12.1-1
python2-pyqtwebengine 5.12-2
python2-pyside 1.2.4-9
python2-pyside-tools 0.2.15-3
python2-pyside2 5.12.1-1
python2-qtpy 1.6.0-1
python2-shiboken 1.2.4-4
python2-shiboken2 5.12.1-1
qt5-webengine 5.12.1-3
qt5-webkit 5.212.0alpha2-23
qtwebkit-bin 2.3.4-9
shiboken 1.2.4-4
shiboken2 5.12.1-1
webkit2-sharp 2.10.9-2
webkit2gtk 2.22.7-1

Then that still didn't work, so I manually compiled the {python-,}shiboken2 packages in the extra/community repos, but with a slightly modified PKGBUILD to allow for support for llvm-svn:

--- PKGBUILD    (revision 347468)
+++ PKGBUILD    (working copy)

   make DESTDIR="$pkgdir" install

And then it compiled, but the web browser didn't work! Gave an error along the line of WebGui module not found, or something like that. So I installed a couple packages which I thought might fix the issue (alas to no avail).

Then I just did this and it worked:

And it worked! Luckly I don't have to care about deps, cause I installed everything with web{kit,gui,engine} in it's name.

The package depends on python2-netcdf4. Please add this to the list of dependencies.

The current PKGBUILD seems to be broken. I get: CMake Error: No source or binary directory provided. This seems to be triggered by the cmake command in the PKGBUILD missing a directory as argument (i.e. ".").

(On some systems I also have problems with cmake not being able to identify the correct opencascade include directory. I'm still trying to figure out why it happens only occasionally, and why only on some systems.)

Grawp commented on 2018-12-19 23:35

Btw. I've removed the shiboken (shitbroken) dependency and it builds fine in clean chroot also Part and PartDesign workbenches seem to be functioning OK.

jorges commented on 2018-12-19 20:18

@miffi: Can you elaborate please? I just rebuild freecad and I get an error about shiboken2:

/opt/freecad-python3/bin/FreeCAD: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

which packages have you installed, have you rebuilt freecad? Thanks
