Please note that the package doesn't compile with med 4.0, you will have to retain the older 3.3.1.

@sigvald maybe you have these two options in your ~/.gmsh-options file, but they no longer apply. As for the git number, that's an upstream problem, it's in the stable source release.

When I run it I get:

$ gmsh
Error   : Unknown number option 'Mesh.ChacoHypercubeDim'
Error   : Unknown number option 'Mesh.ChacoMeshDim1'

Also, the version number in the status bar inside Gmsh says "Gmsh 4.0.0-git-f5fdc29" which doesn't really sound like a stable version to me (but that may be an upstream bug?)

install -D -m644 "${pkgdir}/usr/bin/" "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/"

This needs to be changed in the PKGBUILD, since we now have python 3.7 in the repos.

I can plot regularly with octave/fltk. I tried gmsh binary available at, and it launches without problems. I can't understand what is causing this issue.

@mickele I can't replicate this bug on both my systems (Nvidia non-free and Intel). Can you plot with octave using the fltk toolkit? If you're unable, the problem may be in fltk.

When launching gmsh I have the following error:

libGL error: No matching fbConfigs or visuals found libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast Error : Insufficient GL support (FLTK internal error) Fatal : Your system does not seem to support OpenGL - aborting

Any ideas about possible solutions?

@simonp I'll switch to sha256sums at the next release.

simonp commented on 2018-02-26 22:54

Please do not use md5sum, this is unsafe. Please use sha256 instead. PKGBUILD with proper integrity checks:

With the latest openmpi update gmsh doesn't work anymore. The problem is solved recompiling and reinstalling med. No need to recompile gmsh.
