I had an error message popup when opening the Path workbench, cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I found that upgrading med to 4.0.0-6 fixed the error

arch=('i686' 'x86_64' 'arm' 'armv6h' 'armv7h' 'aarch64') May you add those architectures? :)

Having FreeCAD in [community] would be awesome! BTW, this PKGBUILD should probably source the official tarballs from rather than git commits. Also, FS#61594 is still preventing FreeCAD and ParaView to be installed together. :/

Hi, I want to move FreeCAD back to [community] if you're okay with it gbs.

@Kitesurfer that is because was hard to maintain and difficult to compile a few years ago. That is why it was dropped to the AUR. See:

FreeCAD has gotten its act together though and now it's much easier to maintain than it was back then. Perhaps it will be included back into the Arch repositories in the future.

No harsh feelings, just a simple question, and thanks anyway to the maintainer gbs !

How comes one of the absolute top 20 packages has to be compiled (and it is something...) ? Previously it wasn't so and it was so much handier.

SHIBOKEN_MICRO_VERSION workaround requested and merged upstream (commit 299368b).

Thank you ccorn, your workaround is also effective with freecad-git.

The recent upgrade of shiboken2 has SHIBOKEN_MICRO_VERSION defined as 2.1, and the included dot breaks the preprocessing of src/Gui/WidgetFactory.cpp. Until there is a fix upstream, I suggest the following workaround in prepare():

    # Work around preproc error if SHIBOKEN_MICRO_VERSION is not an integer
    _sbk_uver=$(echo '#include <shiboken2/sbkversion.h>
SHIBOKEN_MICRO_VERSION' | cpp | tail -n 1)
    case $_sbk_uver in *.*)
        msg2 "Truncating SHIBOKEN_MICRO_VERSION $_sbk_uver"
        sed -i "/^ *# *define  *SHIBOKEN_FULL_VERSION\>/\
            s/\<SHIBOKEN_MICRO_VERSION\>/${_sbk_uver%%.*}/" \
