Not working here, remove the _gitname from PKGBUILD gets us beyond pkgver() empty error and onto a different problem with cmake:
<QUOTE>
CMake Error at src/freetype-gl-glxosd/CMakeLists.txt:72 (add_library):
Cannot find source file:

freetype-gl/distance-field.c

</QUOTE>
The missing source file(s) is indeed not part of the files dowloaded from GIT, probably because the project depends on freetype-gl from https://github.com/nickguletskii/freetype-gl/tree/002f3676549373fc1086ed6a381c3d3a1d221e7d : a missing dependency/requirement from the PKGBUILD perhaps. You'll probably need to package freetype-gl too, as it's not in AUR yet, not sure how makepkg will handle things otherwise - not to mention pacman.

Alright, so I wanted to update this package bit it seems upstream is pretty broken. After quite a bit of messing around to get the package to build at all, the resulting package doesn't run either. The guy who wrote the software lives on Ubuntu and just hardcoded[1] the path for the libraries.

This is patchable in the PKGBUILD but is likely going to be a mess and should definitely be fixed upstream. I'd have to make a PR for that and make sure nothing else is broken.

If anyone else wants to step in, please do so. I am not using this package right now so I'd be A-OK to transfer the package ownership to someone else.

@Commander

lib32-libxnvctrl and lib32-lm_sensors are also needed..but those are not available officially..so those packages have to be created via aur also, by using the i686 repos and pulling the lm_sensors and libxnvctrl from there and making them as lib32 ones

@Commander, i can try to upload, i'm not expert, i've uploaded on AUR only simply PKGBUILD

Commander commented on 2014-08-29 09:27

@Dea993 When you upload a lib32-glxosd to AUR then you will able to download it =)

@xpander what dependencies are missing for the 32bit?

Dea993 commented on 2014-08-19 11:00

where i can install lib32-glxosd? i can't find on AUR

this is the output of steam when i launch the witcher 2 with the option

"vblank_mode=0 optirun -b primus glxosd -s %command%"

if someone wants to take over the packaging for this tool, let me know.
i just don't have enough time to deal with 2 extra packages needed to make this package compatible with 32bit games on 64bit.

Commander commented on 2014-08-18 17:40

@Dea993
Im guessing you are running 64bit arch?
Then you need to run 32bit libs of glxosd. Run Steam from terminal and you will get your answer. Also dont post contents into chat here but put it in a pastebin =)

i've solved copying
/usr/bin/glxosd/libglxosd-plugins-nvidia-support.so.2.2.2
in
/usr/bin/glxosd/libglxosd-plugins-nvidia-support.so.2
and
/usr/bin/glxosd/libglxosd-plugins-nvidia-support.so

now works

but when i try to launch a steam game with option
glxosd -s %command%

game crash, how can i solve it?
