I have built and installed qt5-webkit, and everything works fine!

@vedg I did that before, and it got the same error message as I posted. Maybe I remove the old directory and git clone again. Now I can rebuild the goldecdict source code but it failed in linking. The message is look like this.

linking goldendict /usr/bin/ld: warning:, needed by /usr/lib/, not found (try using -rpath or -rpath-link)

I thought I have made the wrong decision to fully upgrade the system. And this need to reupdate build.

There is no way without using yay?

Run makepkg -si in the directory that contains GoldenDict's PKGBUILD.

Run yay -S goldendict-git to upgrade and rebuild GoldenDict against updated system libraries.

After I make a full system upgrade yesterday, then I ran goldendict it returns this error: "goldendict: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory". Then I enter the goldendict-git aur directory, and I make the command "git pull", it return "Already uptodate". Then I make command "makepkg -si", it return this error message "fatal: '/home/innerpeace/Downloads/goldendict-git/goldendict-git' does not appear to be a git repository fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights and the repository exists. ==> ERROR: Failure while updating working copy of goldendict-git git repo Aborting..." I don't know how to fix this. Please give me out. Thanks!

Hi @MarsSeed, Yes, this solved my problem of target not found 'libeb'. Finally, I have installed goldendict successfully!. Thanks for your suggestion.

MarsSeed commented on 2022-06-12 10:48 (UTC)

Hi @InnerPeace,

First you have to package and install libeb from AUR to be able to build this package. :)

But what I recommend instead:

pacman -Syu base-devel
git clone
cd yay
makepkg --syncdeps --rmdeps --install

After that, you can just use

yay -Syu goldendict-git

and that will install all the dependencies of it, including libeb.

I just git clone it to my arch system. But, after I use command makepkg -si , it so me error : target not found 'libeb'. I have reupdate my arch with pacman -S Syu but still the same. Anyone can take me out. Thanks.
