Take a notice, this is now a split package - meaning it will build both the gui and the daemon - you need to install only one of them (unless you really need both).

This needs to be rebuilt against new boost version, but currently its throwing build errors when attempted.

It seems that it became impossible to install both packages at the same time due to a file conflict with the man pages. I guess they changed the Makefile to install the man pages into DESTDIR automatically, so instead of copying the correct file into the $pkgdir again, the wrong one has to be deleted actually.

@Tahvok Thank you, that change resulted in a successful build, install and run.

@kwacorn Thanks for reporting, I've pushed an update with a patch

Following recent updates of QT to version 5.15.0 I tried to rebuild gridcoinresearch-qt however it now gives errors relating to trafficgraphwidget.cpp and the build aborts. Here is the latter part of the build output:

Prior to this QT update the builds were successful. As a test I tried building gridcoinresearch-qt-git and that was a successful build (though I had not realised that was a testnet wallet and does not stake).

Hope that info' is sensible. If of relevance I using Manjaro version of Arch.

You were right, sorry about that. Fix pushed.

VerruckteFuchs commented on 2019-05-13 21:51

There is a typo on line 38 of the PKGBUILD: cp -r ${srcdir}/${_sourcename}/usr/share ${pkgdir}/share/

This puts everything that should be in the /usr/share directory into a /share directory. The application launcher I use couldn't find the .desktop file since it's in the wrong directory, so I had trouble starting my Gridcoin client.

Line 38 should be: cp -r ${srcdir}/${_sourcename}/usr/share ${pkgdir}/usr/share/

Just a quick heads-up: It seems that the next version will include an official upstream gridcoinresearch.desktop file and an icon set.

This means we can drop the gridcoinresearch-qt.desktop source file and the icoutils makedep. To install the files, I think it would be easiest to just cp -rp or rsync -a the whole share/ directory from the DESTDIR into the pkgdir for the -qt package.

I'd recommend using mkdir -p to make it possible to try building again after an error.

mrypsilon thanks a lot for rewriting the PKGBUILD for the new split package! If you want your full name and email added in the contributor comment, I will gladly add them.
