@Ralf_Mardorf: please direct your UI design recommendations here:
http://guitarix.sourceforge.net/forum/viewforum.php?f=12&sid=61e74b806d8e6494d16aacd50c00203d

As for the pkgbuild, feel free to edit it to your needs or use the official one. In it's current shape, including the recommended font does improve user experience, and is therefore more likely to reduce the number of complaints about the UI. I'd be more concerned with the dependency on bluez-libs if I had to go nitpicking...I'll review those and the build flags after the new version is released.

It's nothing new, already 0.34.0.r76.g8d2a959 recommended to install the font. However, the guitarix UI is per se a PITA, I don't see how a font, that deviates from the chosen WM font, would improve anything, it's the other way around. A user does chose the font that fit to the user's needs, if an app decides to use it's own font, for no good reason, it breaks a sane work-flow. Why not making the font by default an optional dependency? What is the reason to make it a hard dependency?

@Ralf_Mardorf: to fix a build warning - that was brought in by the new UI. It will still build and run fine for now, but may look ugly. If you want to test and report on the new UI, better have it.

The latest version still builds and runs without ttf-roboto. Is there a good reason that by default the PKGBUILD makes the font a hard dependency?

I made it an optional dependency and couldn't notice anything bad.

Adopted (by default).
@funkmuscle: If you want to take over or co-maintain, just let me know

Disowned, because I don't really use it ... It still builds fine! :)

funkmuscle commented on 2015-04-07 18:07

@sekret, no problem. Figured you're quite busy. Thanx. I'll let him know it's done.

sekret commented on 2015-04-06 08:38

Sorry for the delay and thanks for the message!

I'll include those flags, but I really must wonder, why they aren't set by default, if they are so heavily suggested ...

funkmuscle commented on 2015-04-03 03:53

@sekret, Hermann, the Guitarix dev asked me to tell you to do this. (in his words):

You should really, really add the flags

--includeresampler

--convolver-ffmpeg

to your build script as well. It is heavy suggested!!!
The best solution will be, when the AUR maintainer add them by default!!
If you ever contact him, please suggest it to him.
This flags helps to work around the fftw pan create issue for LV2 plugs.

And, you didn't need the flag

--shared-lib

it is enabled anyway, when the flag --no-lv2 is not set.

regards
