@djringjr Is the link still necessary since the last update?

djringjr commented on 2019-09-19 21:35 (UTC)

To make it work, you have to do this:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

Then it works.

Now I'm using links from official repositories. I can't get it working with directfb. Feel free to adopt.

lks commented on 2019-03-01 17:06 (UTC)

directfb is also available in the aur.

I am no longer using archlinux (maybe I will in the future).

So feel free to update the package.

@lks @Duologic

FYI, directfb no longer exists. And directfb-rbp is for x86 only (no 64 bit).

Workaround: Manually download latest directfb from the archive:

Install it: sudo pacman -U directfb-xxxx.pkg.tar.xz

Then install links-g-directfb like you would normally do. I used Yaourt.

Works great. Thank you for making this package :^)

@djringjr Thank you for your comment, I will update the package to the current version 2.13 (on thursday). But I haven't noticed that the source was down so far. At this time the sources are accessible: Perhaps, the server was offline during maintenance?

dag commented on 2013-07-19 18:07 (UTC)

after some research... put sed -i "/ac_cpp=/s/\$CPPFLAGS/\$CPPFLAGS -O2/" configure above ./configure and it builds

somercet commented on 2013-06-13 13:12 (UTC)

I changed the order of the autoconf command and it compiled without error: ./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-graphics --with-ssl --with-fb --with-directfb --enable-javascript --enable-graphics --mandir=/usr/share/man

vladimir1922 commented on 2013-05-15 11:14 (UTC)

Refused to compile after complaining about openssl not being installed. Of course openssl is installed (it is even included on the dependencies). Any Idea why?

I flagged out of date as the most recent version is 2.7

commented on 2011-06-26 14:55 (UTC)

Installed with yaourt. Works great for me! Thanks

Duologic commented on 2011-05-24 11:44 (UTC)

The package is orphaned on request, he says to update it soon.

commented on 2011-05-23 21:06 (UTC)

I flagged the package out of date because of an error in the PKGBUILD, you just have to change the line arch=('i686', 'x86_64') to arch=('i686' 'x86_64') (without the comma).

Duologic commented on 2011-04-17 08:11 (UTC)

If you plan to use it, maybe provide a working PKGBUILD, if you are interested in maintaining I'll orphan the package.

The latest version of links-twibright is 2.3pre-1, same as the version of Links in [core]
