Thank you to all those who've made us aware of some recent build system changes that broke things - we'll work on a patch and issue corrected files in the next day or two. Apologies for being slow to get back to this.

benx45h: There are two major differences between the two packages.

The first is that this one isn't just "whatever the latest is in Git", but rather is pinned to a particular commit each day so as to aid reproducability and try and help guarantee a usable build each update

The second is that kicad-git cannot be installed along side kicad, which means if you want to use both a kicad-git nightly build and stable on the same machine, it's just not possible.. This package on the other hand is designed to be side-by-side installed so suffixes on -nightly and puts both config and binaries in a different location to allow all this to work seamlessly.

Hello, in the line 74 the PKGBUILD contains -e 's/^Icon=\(.*\)$/Icon=\1-nightly/g' \ that changes the icon from program to program-nightly, since there are no nigthly icons anymore I think we can remove that line to have the correct icons on the Desktop entries. *Edit: the exception is kicad-nightly and could be changed outside the loop.

I would greatly appreciate a version of this package that tracks the stable Kicad 7.0 branch instead of the development branch. The 7.0 branch has already a number of fixes that will likely end up in the next stable release. This would be particularly helpful at this time, given that version 7 is still new and rapidly stabilizing."

You can remove KICAD_USE_OCC from the CMAKE in build():

Hello DX-MON, in the last commit you changed the sha256sum in the PKGBUILD.in file and not in the PKGBUILD file, this causes the installation to fail. Can you check it please?

Just a little correction: the file to patch is cmake/Functions.cmake not make/Functions.cmake

I was getting the same error as @silvan_rehm when trying to build the latest version. Seems the file to patch has moved to make/Functions.cmake. You can enter the path at the prompt or modify the patch file. If you modify the patch file you'll have to skip it's checksum verification.

updating on my system leads to this:

Making package: kicad-nightly 6.99.0_2636_gee8116e55f-1
[..]
can't find file to patch at input line 3
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
