@Premik I fixed this by adding

-DOCC_INCLUDE_DIR=/usr/include/opencascade \
-DOCC_LIBRARY=/usr/lib \

to the cmake command in the PKGBUILD

@bluewind a build falue because SHA-checksums do not match.

With Kunda's link and the information contained in it, I managed to build on Manjaro by adding just one patch.


Ps: There is a change from the original commit of the source.

@lonaowna I can confirm adding the cmake symbols got me one step further. Thanks. Now I'm getting OCC errors:

CMake Error at cMake/FindOpenCasCade.cmake:98 (string):
  string sub-command REGEX, mode MATCH needs at least 5 arguments total to
Call Stack (most recent call first):
  CMakeLists.txt:635 (find_package)

Call Stack (most recent call first):
  CMakeLists.txt:635 (find_package)

I tried to add additional define:

-DOCC_INCLUDE_DIR=/usr/include/opencascade \

Since this is where the file is. But no luck. It still tries to use the //include/opencascade/ for some reason..

Re: Shiboken2
Check out this open PR "Created a PySide2 and Shiboken2 cmake finder."

Installing 0.18.16111 on latest Manjaro 18.0.4
@Premik I can confirm I have the same issue
@lonaowna I haven't tested your potential fix yet.

When I try to install freecad (Arch Linux, running yay -S freecad) I get something like:

File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/hgdemandimport/", line 147, in __call__
  raise TypeError("%s object is not callable" % repr(self))
TypeError: <unloaded module 'httppeer'> object is not callable

Here's the complete message:

Try adding this to the cmake call in the PKGBUILD to get rid of the shiboken2 and PySide2 errors:

-DSHIBOKEN_INCLUDE_DIR=/usr/include/shiboken2 \
-DSHIBOKEN_BINARY=/usr/bin/shiboken2 \
-DPYSIDE_INCLUDE_DIR=/usr/include/PySide2 \
-DPYSIDE_LIBRARY=/usr/lib/ \
-DPYSIDE_PYTHONPATH=/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/PySide2 \
-DPYSIDE_TYPESYSTEMS=/usr/share/PySide2/typesystems \

The cannot find -lpthreads error is a red herring. The real error is somewhere earlier in the log. In my case I'm getting:

shiboken2 not found.

PySide2 not found.

I have both packages installed pyside2 5.12.2-2, shiboken2 5.12.2-2..
