Hi, please apply this patch so that we can open files with ganttproject using a file browser:

tinxy very nice idea, thanks!

Hi Fritz, please add something like the following line into your PKGBUILD to fix the missing icon:

sed -i "s|2\.8\.3|$pkgver|g" ganttproject.desktop

SanskritFritz commented on 2017-05-04 17:57

Yes, thanks for the heads-up.

tinxy commented on 2017-05-04 17:15

I see that you use as download server. You might wanna change upstream url accordingly.

SanskritFritz commented on 2016-02-05 14:55

Thanks for the heads-up. Updated the package.

I got the following error when trying to build the package:

==> ERROR: license should be an array

In the PKGBUILD, the license line was written:

Changing the line to the following removed the error, and I was able to build the package succesfully:

I'm sorry if I made any mistakes in etiquette on this post, or if this is not the right place for it. I'm a linux beginner, and this is my first post.

It works well here:
INFO: Searching for plugins in /opt/ganttproject/plugins
Try upstream for a solution.

jro commented on 2015-03-02 11:17

fails to start, among other, I see the messages
INFORMATION: Searching for plugins in /home/[user]/plugins


SEVERE: No plugins found

on the console. Of course, looking for plugins in the user's home directory seems bogus. When I first cd to /opt/ganttproject it starts just fine.

DaveCode thanks. The Arch packaging standards page you refer to clearly states:

Package files should follow these general directory guidelines:
/opt/{pkg} Large self-contained packages such as Java, etc.

Thanks for this tool. See my notes on /opt under

Will do, thanks.

Please update

Works great! Thanks!

Adopted and updated.

Also, usage of $startdir is deprecated and breaks building in chroots.

Please update.

Could you maybe run it through namcap and fix the errors?

If you check you will see that df has orphaned this package. So I do not think he is willing to update it.

Also if you check you will see that df has only one other active package in AUR and the has not been updated since 2007.

Is there any chance you would be willing to take it over?



zertyz commented on 2012-03-12 19:07

hi df! would you please consider updating your package to the new release 2.5?
You may find useful to base your PKGBUILD on the package "ganttproject-beta-r888" which was based on yours, but with some fixes and adjustments for the 2.5 beta version.

elmurato commented on 2012-01-22 13:19

Thank you for this package, but I found a problem: After installing /opt/ganttproject/ was not executable. After running chmod +x everything was fine. Maybe this is a problem with the installer?

Equivalent binaries can be found within the package itself, under:

I found some issues with your tarball. Binaries are usually frowned upon. Take for example:
Try to find sources for the binaries instead of embedding them. Thank you.

haagch commented on 2010-06-15 11:17

How about a starter in /usr/bin?
ln -s /opt/ganttproject/bin/ganttproject /usr/bin/ganttproject
ln -s /opt/ganttproject/bin/ganttproject ${pkgdir}/usr/bin/ganttproject or something
