Maybe the wrong place to ask, but I saw 8.7 was out so I downloaded the source, modified the PKGBUILD with new md5sum and version but got the following error when I tried to build:

Thinking it might be zenxml (which has been updated to 2.4) I downloaded that and again modified PKGBUILD with new md5sum, but still get the same error. Any idea where to start looking to teach myself how to fix this?

Downgrade to 8.5 (for the moment)

It seems that there is only one method call used by FreeFileSync 8.6 that is only available in wxgt 3.1.x. This method call seems to be related to the new feature "Remember configuration history scroll position".

If you want to compile FreeFileSync 8.6 with wxgtk 3.0.x, just remove the line
"globalSettings.gui.cfgFileHistFirstItemPos = m_listBoxHistory->GetTopItem();"
from the file "FreeFileSync/Source/ui/main_dlg.cpp".

what? so we have to have 10years for an update? ;)

So for now I see two options.
Either go back to freefilesync version 8.5, or rebuild from abs the packages that causes problem.
I rebuild filezila and it works. But veracrypt on the other hand doesn't work with wxgtk-trenchbroom.
So the safest option for me is to go back to 8.5

This is not because freefilesync needs wxgtk-trenchbroom, it's because wxgtk-trenchbroom and wxgtk in official repo are of different version, 3.0.x for wxgtk, 3.1.x for wxgtk-trenchbroom. wxgtk has been flag out of date since 25/08/2016 but no update yet.

I tried to build freefilesync with wxgtk but build fails. Probably when wxgtk gets updated to 3.1.x we can use it again...

I get the same error with Audacity.

"audacity: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

Does FreeFileSync NEED wxgtk-trenchbroom or can the PKGBUILD be modified to use the standard wxgtk? I can confirm that the issue does also affect FileZilla...

yes but no mediainfo-gui from community doesn't work anymore :)

mediainfo-gui: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

yes but wxgtk-trenchbroom provides wxgtk so you shiuldn't have any problems.
I build it with no errors, makepkg replaced wxgtk with wxgtk-trenchbroom and everything works as before.

wxgtk-trenchbroom and wxgtk are in conflict

needed by filezilla for example
