Building failed, XDjackieXD's and tioguda's/Kunda's info doesn't helps for me.

@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)

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..

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.
