@haawda, thank you for testing, but I currently think the right thing to do is to get community/python-wxpython downgraded.

@electro707, I am not awareof ny verison bump requirement from upstream, what I think you are facing is that you may have installed a wxpython version that requries wx 3.1, maybe oyu insalled wxpython 4.1?

electro707 commented on 2021-10-23 04:14 (UTC)

Looks like, as of 2021-10-23, that KiCad requires WxWidgets 3.1.5:

CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.21/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:230 (message):

  CMakeLists.txt:876 (find_package)

But the non-AUR wxgtk3 package is using the stable wx release of 3.0.5

@f0x52, yes, I have now updated it

f0x52 commented on 2021-10-20 12:22 (UTC)

as per https://forum.kicad.info/t/warning-avoid-all-links-to-kicad-pcb-org-use-kicad-org/31521 the upstream url should probably be changed to kicad.org

Hey, can you add -G Ninja to the cmake options and then change make to cmake --build . then the make install line can become DESTDIR="${pkgdir}" cmake --build . -- install

makes the build go brrr

I needed to use wxgtk3-dev from AUR instead of WXGTK3 and the fowllowing patch to build.
