when i try to build freecad-git, i am asked to choose a provider for med with options:

  • med-openmpi 4.0.0
  • med-salome 3.3.1
  • med3 3.3.1

if i choose med3 or med-openmpi, i get the error:

unable to satisfy dependency 'python-pivy'

When I try to build the package, I get a bunch of cmake errors related to OpenCascade. Adding PATH=/usr/bin:$PATH to build() as in the the PKGBUILD of the freecad package fixes it for me.

Could you please add that to this PKGBUILD as well?

Some package update broke scrollwheel zoom for me in FreeCAD 0.19-git. Scroll wheel works fine for scrolling in dialogs, report view and the welcome screen etc, but doesn't work for zooming in/out in models in the 3d view. Tried different Navigation Styles to no avail. Does anyone else have this problem? What (QT5?) package is responsible for the 3d view? Latest 0.19 appimage works fine btw.

Since I still couldn't create meshes using the standard mesher, I've asked in the FreeCAD forums:

A user mentioned, that he is using the package med-openmpi instead of med and hdf5-openmpi instead of hdf5. I've tried that and it did indeed solve the issue for now. Maybe this can help others, too.

@greyltc you need to rebuild this package after updating to qt5 5.15.

@SunDoctor that seems to be a problem with Nouveau. Did you try with the proprietary Nvidia driver?

Freecad is very unstable on my Arch. :-( In Sketch mode it always breaks with log:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

@lonaowna: Thank you for the tip! After an short attempt at downgrading didn't work, I decided to download the current AppImage version to create meshes. I can live with that, until the issue is resolved. :-)
