removing the https from the source solves the certificate problem:

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

billybob commented on 2014-01-19 03:34

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:
==> Validating source files with sha256sums...
121881-equinox-1.50.tar.gz ... FAILED

would it support gtk3?

Added to Parabola's [elementary] repo :)

@speps thanks, PKGBUILD updated

@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:

@dapolinario, @fabiop, @haeger, thanks, updated to new version.

Yes, that's problem regarding the used checksum by the provided PKGBUILD. You can easily fix the problem by using the following command:

sha256sum 121881-equinox-1.30.tar.bz2

sha256sum returns a checksum. This checksum must be inserted in the PKGBUILD file instead of the old checksum.
You can do this with your prefered editor.

If you encounter further problems please let me know. I will try to help you. :)

I have a problem, the file doesn't pass the validity check. Is it a problem with the PKGBUILD or not?

vodik commented on 2010-08-01 00:56

Why not, while keeping the packages separate, combine the two PGKBUILDs?

shanipribadi commented on 2010-03-24 16:07

I think it's easier and simpler to install the theme alongside the engine.
Because the source itself is the same, adding another separate package only adds more unneeded complexity.

Frikilinux commented on 2010-03-24 06:14

@zhuqi the themes included are in gtk-theme-equinox package
I preferred them separate. What do you think?

Can you install those themes included too?
