Roger. It seems that upstream force-pushed 1.5.0 tag. Sigh :(

Apologies for the inconvenience.

This should be

Hi MarsSeed,

I fully understand your request and appreciate your feedback. However, as far as I know, ArchLinux does not enforce a strict splitting-shared-library policy like Debian does. The decision to bundle certain libraries (imgui, glad, etc.) was made by the upstream developers, and I prefer to align with their build policies. While debundling can be more space-efficient, it often leads to creating numerous new patches. Staying in sync with upstream, in my opinion, is a more proper approach.

Similiar AUR packages, like imhex also do not patch to depend on aur/imgui. The PKGBUILD maintainer simply enables cmake's USE_SYSTEM_XXX flags provided by upstream.

I believe there must be a reason for the upstream developer to bundle third_party code, whether for ease of use or for further custom modifications. As downstream packagers, it is generally better not to modify it unless security vulnerabilities are identified.

Thanks for your understanding.

This should be patched to depend on aur/imgui instead of building its own version of it from the third_party/imgui directory.

Here's a FindImGui.cmake module file that you could use to that end.

Other libraries that would be better to depend on instead of building and bundling them:

  • extra/glad (instead of third_party/glad)
  • aur/fmt9 (instead of third_party/fmt)
  • extra/nlohmann-json (instead of third_party/json)

You need to add 'git' in the makedepends array in order to build this package in clean chroot environment. Thx in advance

Notice: If you encounter any error spams like the one below on Wayland, you can disable the 'Enable Viewports' option in the settings/interface section to fix it [1]:

GLFW [65544]: Wayland: Window position retrieval not supported

However, please note that the Wayland backend can still be unstable and may encounter other errors [2], such as:

GLFW [65544]: Wayland: Window position setting not supported
GLFW [65544]: Wayland: Focusing a window requires user interaction

If you are bothered by these issues, consider switching to the old good X11 backend by reinstalling GLFW, which replaces the Wayland backend and uses XWayland:

sudo pacman -S glfw-x11
