I'm unable to build this PKGBUILD in a clean archlinux:

-- Checking for module 'libopenjp2'
-- No package 'libopenjp2' found
CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.8/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:137 (message):
Could NOT find OpenJPEG: Found unsuitable version "", but required is at
least "2.0.0" (found )
Call Stack (most recent call first):
/usr/share/cmake-3.8/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:375 (_FPHSA_FAILURE_MESSAGE)
CMake/FindOpenJPEG.cmake:26 (find_package_handle_standard_args)
CMakeLists.txt:370 (find_package)

I guess there is a makedepend missing? The full buildlog is available at

Indeed, @femtomatic has the correct fix. PKGBUILD is updated. Thanks all.

Hi, the conflict can be resolved by adding -DGDCM_USE_SYSTEM_OPENJPEG:BOOL=ON to the cmake options.

I posted a corrected PKGBUILD here:

2.8.0-9 fails to install, conflicts with the openjpeg2 package:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
gdcm: /usr/lib/pkgconfig/libopenjp2.pc exists in filesystem

$ pacman -Qo /usr/lib/pkgconfig/libopenjp2.pc
/usr/lib/pkgconfig/libopenjp2.pc is owned by openjpeg2 2.1.2-2

Whoops, thanks @femtomatic. This was actually a stale .SRCINFO, I must have forgotten to re-generate it. The pkgrel should be 6 since this is a version update.

Hi, thanks for updating the package, there is a small error in the PKGBUILD pkgrel should be:

Thanks again for your help @yan12125. This should be fixed.

Hi, thanks for updating gdcm to the latest version. Here's a minor issue: The CMake option GDCM_DOCUMENTATION_SKIP_MANPAGES has a different name in version 2.6.4 GDCM_BUILD_DOCBOOK_MANPAGES. I have to change -DGDCM_DOCUMENTATION_SKIP_MANPAGES:BOOL=ON to -DGDCM_BUILD_DOCBOOK_MANPAGES:BOOL=OFF, or I got docbook related errors.

I see what the problem was:

The patch command was looking two directories up for the patch instead of one -- including the patch in the file index places it in the source dir. Thanks for catching this. Should be fixed now.

Hi @manzo,

Here is the commit I pushed[1], I'm seeing the patch. Did I push it in the wrong way? When I "Download snapshot" and extract it's included in the tar file, and running makepkg in the directory seems to work. Also yaourt seems to find it.

In the meantime if it's urgent, you can download the patch at [2].
