You may want to bump up the pkgrel to force recompilation against boost 1.59.0.
Otherwise, the following error happens and there is no indication of needing to rebuild lgogdownloader:

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

boost should probably be in makedepends, boost-libs in depends.

In addition to the previous comment: You can also use the commit as patch directly (just add '.patch' to it's url).
Example, untested:


prepare() {
cd $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver
patch -Np1 ../jsonpp-include.patch

This PKGBUILD works, it basically applies this commit:

# Maintainer: Joe Davison <>

pkgdesc="An open source downloader for games, uses the API"
arch=(i686 x86_64)
depends=('boost' 'jsoncpp' 'liboauth' 'rhash' 'tinyxml' 'htmlcxx' 'curl')

build() {
cd $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver

sed -i 's+^\(INC .*$\)+\1 -I/usr/include/jsoncpp+' Makefile
sed -i 's+jsoncpp/\(json/json.h\)+\1+' */*.h
sed -i 's+jsoncpp/\(json/json.h\)+\1+' */*.cpp

# Set to debug for more output
make release


package() {
cd $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver

make PREFIX=$pkgdir/usr install

# install -D -m 755 $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver/man/$pkgname.1.gz \
# $pkgdir/usr/share/man/man1/$pkgname.1.gz

I have the same compiling problem as InspMustache. Any fix in sight?

Doesn't compile for me anymore since the latest update. Apparently json.h is missing.

Thanks for updating, but your package still invokes a manual "install" line and still does not use PREFIX and DESTDIR properly. Please fix :(

chungy commented on 2014-11-30 08:13

The "make install" line doesn't install the files to proper locations. You need to set DESTDIR and PREFIX appropriately, and also you should use quotations around environment variables to protect building under certain path names. Fixed PKGBUILD example:

Lots of new features in 2.18, better management of download locations etc. Full changelog as usual at the forum thread:

I keep getting build errors in this new version.
