I changed it to wxwidgets-gtk3 now, because I could not get it to compile with WX_CONFIG = wx-config --toolkit=qt and the -qt5 package also has the same provides.

Let me know when there is a ways to build with Qt5/6, would be happy to support that as option.

This could probably just depend on "wxwidgets" (which is provided by wxwidgets-gtk3) instead of a specific gtk version.

wxgtk2 is no longer available in AUR but Golly is being built and works smoothly with wxwidgets-gtk3.

@maksverver: Thanks for the info, it is fixed now.

The missing wxgtk dependency is caused by this change:

Replace wxgtk with wxgtk2 in the PKGBUILD file to fix it.

I get this error: target not found: wxgtk.

Golly 4.0 is out! The autoconf scripts have been removed from this release, so it's necessary to build with the makefile-gtk script instead. Here's an updated PKGBUILD:

The hackiest part is specifying the location of We could remove that (Golly will prompt the user for the location if is not found) or disable perl support entirely, since it's deprecated upstream.
