@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.

Golly 3.0 has been released.
Will update tonight

By the way, I think you can drop the `gendesk` make dependency if you ship the .desktop file separately.

@kylesferrazza & @maksverver
Thanks! It installs smoothly now.

Looks good, I'll update this package within the next hour

I created a PKGBUILD that links against the wxgtk package from Arch (instead of compiling the bundled source code). That's simpler and seems to work just fine.


Kyle, what do you think? Worth replacing the official PKGBUILD?
