Thanks charlie5! After two hours of build on my laptop, it works fine.

Hi Armag67,

A re-build/install should fix the problem.

I'll bump up the package version tomorrow.

Thanks for the heads up.

Hello, has been updated to last week on my box. Now gps claims the older version of the library at launch (gps: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory).

Even if i make a symlink to in the /usr/lib/ directory, gps throw at launch the error message: gps: /usr/lib/ version `LLVM_7' not found (required by gps).

Thank's to take a look.

The package pep8 has been renamed pycodestyle in 2016. A pull-request is already awaiting review upstream: The package python2-pycodestyle already exists in the communityrepository.

You could use a patch while waiting for the change upstream.

Hi gbabin,

You are right. I've been unable to locate a pep8 package for python2, however :(.

The build succeeds for me, thank you for making GPS available !

However, when it stars, there is the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/share/gps/plug-ins/", line 9, in <module>
    import pep8
ImportError: No module named pep8

I think that it comes from the fact that python2 is looking for pep8 whereas the package depends on python-pep8, which is a Python 3 package.

The build fails for me:

When running gps, I get the following error, as well as many more python import errors in the messages window:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: No module named gi

Installing python2-gobject changes the error to the following instead:

ImportError: could not import gobject (could not find _PyGObject_API object)

GPS is mostly unusable and many actions fail, sometimes crashing the whole program. For instance, on every startup I get the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/gps/support/core/", line 616, in on_gps_started
messages = GPS.MDI.get("Messages").pywidget()
GPS.Unexpected_Exception: unexpected internal exception raised STORAGE_ERROR : s-intman.adb:136 explicit raise

gprbuild: *** compilation phase failed

Would this be due to underlying compiler version in Manjaro since it is a quite new Ada feature? (6.3.1)

Should/when anyone have problems setting breakpoints on ada runtime exceptions (constraint_error/etc) in GPS (or GDB, in general), then please see this ...

Fix, in nutshell, is ...

# abs

$ mkdir ~/gcc-build
$ cp /var/abs/core/gcc/PKGBUILD ~/gcc-build
$ cd ~/gcc-build
$ <edit PKGBUILD> ...

options=('staticlibs' '!emptydirs')

options=('staticlibs' '!emptydirs' '!strip')

... in package_gcc-ada()

$ makepkg
$ sudo pacman -U *.xz
