Hello Everybody,

I have updated the PKGBUILD and changed the depency from goocanvas to goocanvas1.
I have also updated grig. Now both should work.
Have a lot of fun :-)

Please remove grig as dep and change goocanvas to goocanvas1

Same problem with building grig as others, but GPredict does even depend on grig.

Simply removing grig from the dependency list solves the problem.

I'm having the same problem as reported by einseenai, here's the output:

main.o: In function `main':
main.c:(.text.startup+0x80): undefined reference to `g_thread_supported'
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
Makefile:367: recipe for target 'grig' failed

make: *** [all] Error 2
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build .

Please I need some help on this, I need this package ASAP.

PS.: there's a new release (beta) of gpredict!

Impossible to install due to a trouble with compiling grig.

Please change the dependency from goocanvas to goocanvas1

Dependency on goocanvas has to be changed to goocanvas1.

DL0, thanks so lot! Worked our like a charm :)

I had the some problem as laganon and einseenai.

The solution is to install goocanvas1, available in community.

Until gpredict is updated to use goocanvas 2.0, change:

depends=('curl' 'grig' 'gtk2' 'goocanvas')
depends=('curl' 'grig' 'gtk2' 'goocanvas1')


The program runs fine after compiling.

Similar problem to einseenai, see pastebin below. Package will not build despite having goocanvas as required:

einseenai commented on 2011-11-12 11:48

Got the following while trying to install it - - despite goocanvas package is installed on my system
