Building klayout will also build the klayout python module, which makes it possible to use klayout from within python directly. See [0] for more info.

Currently this package does not install the python module, although it gets build with ./ and then can be found under bin-release/pymod.

Can the PKGBUILD be adjusted so that the python module will be installed along klayout itself (under /usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/klayout)?

Thanks nigeil, I updated the package to use the current ruby.

The ruby dependency may have been fixed at this point - I was able to build against the current version of ruby with no problem.

Thanks for the feedback heitzmann I have updated the PKGBUILD with these requirements. If anyone manages to build with the latest ruby please let me know.

The PKGBUILD is missing a few dependencies: 'qt5-tools' 'qt5-multimedia' 'qt5-xmlpatterns' 'qt5-svg'

Simply making a symbolic link /usr/lib/ -> /usr/lib/ is a quick and dirty fix. It does not ACTUALLY require version 2.4 as it seems. Just remove the link again after the package has been updated...

I confirm this. Downgrade to ruby 2.4 works fine.

Is anyone else having trouble building against ruby 2.5? I seem to be getting issues when linking It seems to specifically want

I've tried setting build_opts to specifically point to ruby 2.5 (-rbvers 25000 -rblib /usr/lib/ -rbinc /usr/include/ruby-2.5.0/)... but none of those seem to have worked for me. Anyone else having luck?

Thanks for the help bubka. I had already investigated a fix for this I was just waiting on the test results. Please update and you'll find the issue fixed. I also added python bindings satisfying a very old request.
