billybob, pkg-config is in the base-devel group which is required to use the AUR ( ).

This package requires pkg-config to check the version of gtk2. Although I installed gtk2, without pkg-config, there will still be error like:

checking for pkg-config... no
checking for GTK... configure: error: GTK+-2.10 is required to compile equinox

This is somewhat bogus? We should raise error on pkg-config instead?

There seems to be a checksum problem:

121881-equinox-1.50.tar.gz ... FAILED

@Frikilinux Hi, seems like the toolbar bar bug was not fixed in latest release yet. The old sed line does not work anymore.
Here is a working PKGBUILD with the fixed sed line > - I just did the same for the lib32 one - cheers

@archspeps thanks for the fix. Workaround added.

Hi, this engine needs a patch in order to work with some applications (ex. jackbeat segfaults).

The patch was send to equinox author yet, for now while upstream does not fix you have to add:

sed -i "985 s_\(EQUINOX.*\)_widget \&\& \1_" src/equinox_style.c

before make.

Here you can find a working fixed PKGBUILD:

C ya
