@gpettinello thank you, I was able to install gabedit using your PKGBUILD, but I needed to install pangox-compat explicitly. I had pango installed, but without pangox-compat during building gabedit I've got an error

/usr/sbin/ld: cannot find -lpangox-1.0

collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

@Sylogista yes I have pango installed and that gives me no errors. So the dependency should be pango and not for instance pangox-compat (AUR) Sorry for the mistake

@gpettinello: I've tried your PKGBUILD on fresh Arch and it gives errors. Could you check it on fresh Arch too? For me it looks like you have pangox... could you also check ldconfig -p | grep pangox?

I was able to compile without pangox and without errors. Here is the PKGBUILD

# Maintainer: Hilary Jendrasiak <>
# Contributor: ross <prwarren8 at gmail dot com>
# Contributor: gianluca <>

pkgdesc='A graphical user interface to computational chemistry packages'
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
depends=('gtkglext' 'gtk2')


    cd "$srcdir/GabeditSrc$_pkgver/"
    cp platforms/CONFIG.unix CONFIG
    sed -i 's/-Wno-unused-variable/-Wno-unused-variable -fcommon/g' CONFIG
    #LDFLAGS+=/lib/ make
    mkdir -p "$pkgdir/usr/bin"
    mkdir -p "$pkgdir/usr/share/licenses/gabedit"
    mkdir -p "$pkgdir/usr/share/applications/"

    install -D -m655 "$srcdir/GabeditSrc$_pkgver/gabedit" \
    install -D -m644 "$srcdir/GabeditSrc$_pkgver/License" \

    # install .desktop file
    install -D -m644 "$srcdir/gabedit.desktop" \
    install -D -m644 "$srcdir/GabeditSrc$_pkgver/icons/Gabedit48.png" \

You see that I moved to version 2.5.1 and that I had to use -fcommon to avoid the ld errors with gcc 10. I will mark the package as out of date. Please modify the PKGBUILD. Thanks

Requires pangox

Should be added as a dependency. Also fails due to errors noted by a.kudelin.

Full error log:

Cannot build due to lots of errors like:
/usr/bin/ld: tmp/AxesGeomGL.o:(.bss+0x7d0): multiple definition of `alpha_opacity'; tmp/AnimationMD.o:(.bss+0x3c8): first defined here

Hi guys! I get segfault each time I press "Draw geometry" or "Display geometry" buttons. Does anyone have the same issue?

Hi avo1990! Thank you for your appreciation and the report. I've that little bug too, no matter on gnome, or not. In my opinion this is not the PKGBUILD problem. Looks more like linking buttons to actions issue. I'm reporting that bug right now. We will know soon.

Hi! Thanks so much for the package! I noticed that the close icon for some popup windows do not work (gnome) but the actual close option at the bottom of the window works but not a big deal.
