According to the rebuild-detector script another file should be added to the package.

ldd /usr/lib/inkscape/ => not found

ldd /usr/bin/inkscape => not found

ldd /usr/bin/inkview => not found

This file is built from in the thirdparty subdir and can be added using

 install -Dm644 lib/ "$pkgdir"/usr/lib/inkscape/

Th version number now is no longer monotonously increasing. I get


now. This can be most easily solved by an epoch bump.

Needs explicitely set C-Compiler now.

build() {
  cd "$_gitname"
  [[ -d build ]] || mkdir build
  cd build
  export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/usr/lib/imagemagick6/pkgconfig"
  export CXXFLAGS="${CXXFLAGS} -fpermissive"
  cmake .. \

Could the dependency libmagick6 be changed to libmagic6 | imagemagick6 | imagemagick7?

libmagick6 makes digikam linking fail, because it is seen before imagemagick7. I could build inkscape-git sucessfully after removing libmagick6 (and the depend in the PKGBUILD) with imagemagick7 installed.

Cheers, ppenguin

The PKGBUILD is now missing a prepare() function with a git submodule update --init.

Hi, Inkscape doesn’t depend on gtkspell3 anymore, it switched to gspell.

maybe something went wrong during acroread removal or installation

There's no such thing as something went wrong :) Pacman can't remove files needed for other packages. You just need to rebuild inkscape after libpopplr=99 update from 4 days ago

For the future, try rebuild-detector it will notify you during pacman -Suy about any AUR packages that requires a rebuild because it dependency got updated.

Hi, I'm getting this message since yesterday when trying to run inkscape:

inkscape: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

In the mean time I had installed and then removed "acroread" packages. AFAIK sience libpoppler has to do with XML rendering, maybe something went wrong during acroread removal or installation?

Hi, what about adding -j 8 or something like that to that make command in build()? Are there any disadvantages of doing so? Doing it might speed up compilation a lot. I didn't time it but it feels faster when I'm compiling.

@haawda : Ok, thanks. Wait and see then...
