May I suggest wireshark-qt instead of wireshark-gtk? (The latter has been at risk of deprecation since 2013, and use of gns3-gui implies use of qt already.)

Also, why optional instead of required as it appears to be in gns3's official Ubuntu ppa?

Thanks @hcartiaux for the update. I really appreciate it.

I'm open to co-maintainership... Any help is welcome.

I'm blocked on the gns3-server update because it requires outdated python modules, and I don't want to break any working user installation by updating only gns3-gui...

Can somebody take over this package?

The PKGBUILD for gns3-gui is easy to update, but gns3-server requires specific outdated version of python modules which must be packaged specifically.

If you want the updated GUI PKGBUILD, here it is:

pkgdesc='GNS3 network simulator. Graphical user interface package.'
depends=('python-jsonschema' 'gns3-converter' 'python-raven' 'python-psutil' 'python-pyqt5' 'qt5-svg')
optdepends=('gns3-server: GNS3 backend. Manages emulators such as Dynamips, VirtualBox or Qemu/KVM.'
'dynamips: Cisco router emulator.'
'xterm: Default terminal emulator for CLI management of virtual instances.'
'wireshark-gtk: Live packet capture.')

package() {
cd ${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}
python install --root=${pkgdir} --optimize=1
install -Dm644 ${srcdir}/gns3.desktop ${pkgdir}/usr/share/applications/gns3.desktop
install -Dm644 ${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}/resources/images/gns3_icon_256x256.png ${pkgdir}/usr/share/pixmaps/gns3.png
install -Dm644 ${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}/LICENSE ${pkgdir}/usr/share/licenses/${pkgname}/LICENSE

Hi. Any progress on this?

Just in case, the commented out substitution in the PKGBUILD prepare should now be run on "requirements.txt", not "".

I also had an issue with gui scaling. Apparently High DPI is enabled by virtue of having QT and PyQT version 5.6 or above. I don't have a high DPI screen, but I do have QT 5.8.

So I commented out lines 36-39 of gns3/ which fixed that particular problem.

Ok hcartiaux. I'll check back on Monday then.

hcartiaux commented on 2017-05-09 13:23

@alexanderp I will not have the time before this week-end.
I can add you to the co-maintainer list if you want.

alexanderp commented on 2017-05-09 12:37

1. This package is in dire need of an update.
2. Replace dependency to gns3-net-converter with gns3-converter

hcartiaux, do you have the time to maintain this package?
