Please kindly make this depend directly on wxwidgets-gtk3, so that people have the choice of using alternative providers of that, like wxwidgets-gtk3-light or wxwidgets-gtk3-wayland-perf.

Adopted and fixed the package. (But I don't know for how long the seemingly no-longer-maintained upstream code will hold.)

You need to change the source protocol from git+git:// to git+https:// due to changes at github.

Thanks for maintaining!, regards!

Actually, this software has it's own notion of a package version. It currently is 1.4.5907 (as can be seen in the about page). According to VCS package guidelines, such version numbers should be used in the first part of $pkgver if available.

Actually, the file src/svnrev.h seems to provide that information in the line

#define SVN_REVSTR  "1.4.5907"

So I suggest to parse that.

pkgver() then could look like, for example:

pkgver() {
  cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}"
  _ver="$(grep -E '^[[:space:]]*#define[[:space:]]+SVN_REVSTR[[:space:]]+[^[:space:]]' src/svnrev.h | awk '{print $3}' | tr -d \"\'[[:space:]])"
  _rev="$(git rev-list --count HEAD)"
  _date="$(git log -1 --date=format:"%Y%m%d" --format="%ad")"
  _hash="$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"

  if [ -z "${_ver}" ]; then
    error "Version could not be determined."
    return 1
    printf '%s' "${_ver}+r${_rev}.${_date}.${_hash}"

According to namcap, this one depends on wxgtk2, not wxgtk3:

kicadlibrarian-git E: Dependency wxgtk2 detected and not included (libraries ['usr/lib/', 'usr/lib/', 'usr/lib/'] needed in files ['opt/kicadlibrarian-git/bin/kicadlibrarian'])
kicadlibrarian-git W: Dependency included and not needed ('wxgtk3')

Also, some stuff of the $install file seems to be executed automatically by pacman hooks:

kicadlibrarian-git W: .INSTALL file runs a command provided by hooks.

Thanks for maintaining!

Should be fixed now, I've changed the way pkgver() calculates the version.

Dear Andrej: kicadlibrarian-git r32.eccc226-1 only reinstalls r29.81f6567-1 (pointing to kicadlibrarian 1.3.5685) without changing rc version in pacman database. Is this the expected behavior? I must to state Ignore = kicadlibrarian-git in /etc/pacman.conf to avoid its reinstallation on each system update by means yaourt -Syua .

andrejr commented on 2017-08-17 14:40 (UTC)

Fixed. The guy who made all the changes (melak) that made the thing compileable with wxgtk 3.0.x from (extras) repository deleted his fork, hence the message. Fortunately, though, he made 2 pull requests to the original developer, but they are yet to be accepted. I forked the repo and applied the pull requests manually to my fork, so this package will be pointing to my fork temporarily, until the original developer accepts the requests. I'm an idiot for not cloning the repo in the first place.
