Actually its not listed in either.

Popolon commented on 2022-02-19 19:17 (UTC)

I believe bzip2 is a makedepends instead of a depends.

Updated...PLUS, I "fixed" addinclude by creating a new package; addinclude-git to solve the problem of a not working addinclude.pkg

I added a patch, on to make it compile with recent version of freetype2 (use pkg-config to retrieve lib/include dirs, instead of it's own freetype-config).

Disable doc to make the package build, if someone have a solution, he can patch it. I just adopted the package, corrected it and disowned it. At least it works for dependencies.

The freetype-config and gtkdoc-scan UTF-8 parsing issue is still a problem.

@TPXP: Here is the bug in freetype2 build

You need to recompile freetype2 with the option --enable-freetype-config to compile libgnomeprint. You can find the PKGBUILD to patch here

You also have to add the --enable-gtk-doc=no option to the configure of libgnomeprint PKGBUILD.

An updated PKGBUILD for libgnomeprint is here

TPXP commented on 2018-10-24 12:28 (UTC)

Looks like something is broken with Freetype :

configure: error: You need FreeType2 (freetype-devel v 2.x package) for this version of libgnomeprint

The freetype2 package is installed on my system. I tried installing lib32-freetype2 but still no luck :-/

Humble_Panda commented on 2014-07-04 09:41 (UTC)

Fair enough, that makes sense. Thanks biinari

biinari commented on 2014-07-04 09:31 (UTC)

Looks like bison is now in the base-devel group. I'm not sure how long it's been there but the general rule is to not mention dependencies that are in base-devel.

Humble_Panda commented on 2014-07-04 06:44 (UTC)

The problem has been fixed and is now working again. Moreover, I noticed bison is not a dependency listed on this package's dependencies list. Wouldn't it better to include bison to the list? Cheers,

biinari commented on 2014-07-03 17:06 (UTC)

Looks like the server outage for has been reported to gentoo already

Humble_Panda commented on 2014-07-02 05:58 (UTC)

It's been now several day that I'm getting an error while trying to update this package. It always says "failed to connect to sources.gentoo..." In fact, doesn't even work :( Cheers

pinball-fixer commented on 2014-06-29 15:07 (UTC)

No probs xyproto, I'm glad it worked out!

xyproto commented on 2014-06-26 14:15 (UTC)

The Gentoo patch worked out. Removed the make dependency on bison27. Thanks, pinball-fixer.

xyproto commented on 2014-06-23 15:33 (UTC)

Hi pinball-fixer. The patch you link to might work out. I'll give it a shot.

pinball-fixer commented on 2014-06-23 14:06 (UTC)

I've got Bison 3 installed on my system (due to having Wine installed) and need libgnomeprint installed to make KiCad print. As Bison 3 conflicts with Bison27, I am wondering if the patch below will work on Arch as well? I have no idea how to test this, so I am hoping someone here can, or let me know how to so I can try for myself and report back. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

xyproto commented on 2013-12-22 12:04 (UTC)

Thanks, josephgbr. Updated the package.

rafaelff commented on 2013-12-20 17:10 (UTC)

Compilation fails when it expects to find some headers provided by freetype. This issue was reported and fixed in the bug BGO#719592 [1]. For your convenience, here is the PKGBUILD with the patch (from the the bug report) applied and the pkgrel bump. PKGBUILD - patch-freetype-2.5.1.diff - [1]

buzzqw commented on 2013-11-21 14:21 (UTC)

with new bison2.7 the compilation is working thanks! BHH

buzzqw commented on 2013-11-20 13:42 (UTC)

i686 thanks xyproto! BHH

xyproto commented on 2013-11-20 11:38 (UTC)

buzzqw, the package builds and installs just fine here (x86_64). Are the packages on your system up to date? Are you on i686 or x86_64? Anyone else have the same issue as buzzqw?

korrode commented on 2013-11-20 00:57 (UTC)

Sorry guys, never knew anything other than my wine-stable package referenced bison27. I've re-uploaded and disowned it. All yours.

xyproto commented on 2013-11-19 11:22 (UTC)

buzzqw, not on the Arch Linux installation I currently have access to. If you want to adopt the package and look at it, I will happily orphan it.

buzzqw commented on 2013-11-19 11:13 (UTC)

but bison2.7 is already installed BHH

xyproto commented on 2013-11-19 11:01 (UTC)

bison27 (make dependency of this package) has been removed from AUR, but I asked for it to be uploaded again (ref aur-general). Unflagging as out of date, as there has been no new releases of libgnomeprint since 2010-09-28. Will look at the package again once bison27 is in AUR.

xyproto commented on 2013-09-11 12:22 (UTC)

Updated the PKGBUILD. It compiles again now (by using an older version of bison).

xyproto commented on 2013-09-10 09:44 (UTC)

@Nareto, thanks, will look at it.

Nareto commented on 2013-09-09 13:53 (UTC)

I get this error:

xyproto commented on 2012-09-19 09:16 (UTC)

jorgicio, you must install "base-devel" before trying to install any package from AUR. This is expected of the users, and also mentioned in my comment below. See:

jorgicio commented on 2012-09-18 23:56 (UTC)

Please, add "flex" as a makedependency. Without that package, I can't compile. Thanks.

onny commented on 2012-02-20 10:54 (UTC)

@trontonic: Surprisingly, I also had to manually install 'flex' as dependency. Maybe it got removed after I installed the multilib-version of some important base-devel applications.

xyproto commented on 2011-12-08 15:10 (UTC)

Hi, both bison and flex are in the base-devel group. base-devel is not supposed to be included in the makedepends array. See: and

max-k commented on 2011-12-08 14:55 (UTC)

Hi, could you add bison and flex to makedepends ? Thx

xyproto commented on 2011-12-07 11:14 (UTC)

Updated the dependencies.

xyproto commented on 2011-12-06 08:51 (UTC)


commented on 2011-12-05 16:48 (UTC)

You should install base-devel, those packages are never in makedepends.
