A fix for this issue was committed shortly after, but unfortunately no new release was made yet.

I've made a VCS package for makehuman, which already includes the fix, for those who don't want to wait until the fix is either included in this package or a new version is released:

Please note that this package installs files under /usr/share/makehuman instead of /opt/makehuman. This means it is not compatible with the makehuman-community-plugins package (without adapting the installation path for this package as well).

@stativ: Thank you. The last comment there was made 12 days ago, so I'm hoping a fix is being worked on. While MH is something I do want, I don't want it badly enough to fiddle with downgrading things from what's in official repos, considering I'm quite new to Arch.

@misanthropist: see upstream bug:

I get an exception whenever I try to export a mesh. Below is the one I get when trying to export as MHX2, but I get the same one for all the other formats as well.

Works fine for me. Did you compile numpy by yourself?

Roken commented on 2017-06-10 09:28

Build is failing, trying to reinstall after a failure to launch, presumably because of updated dependencies, so I figured rebuild against current system.

I did update the python-numpy packages.

Importing the multiarray numpy extension module failed. Most
likely you are trying to import a failed build of numpy.
If you're working with a numpy git repo, try `git clean -xdf` (removes all
files not under version control). Otherwise reinstall numpy.

Original error was: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

check that is working correctly

BINBIN commented on 2014-06-24 01:30

stativ,this problem has been solved.It's all my fault.
I shouldn't change the Sources variable of this PKGBUILD.

stativ commented on 2014-06-23 17:48

Weird. Can you try building it with makepkg?

stativ commented on 2014-05-22 09:03

MrFox: fixed, I guess you were building in a directory mounted with noexec

There's no version bump, as there's no need for update if you have built it already.

MrFox commented on 2014-05-21 03:43

Line 29 was giving a *permission denied* error until changing it from `./ ...` to `python2 ./ ...`

I have python3 and python2, so running `python ./` threw a different error.

Johnny commented on 2014-03-21 20:00

Thanks for this package.

I just tested a fix for the upcoming 1.0.1 service release, and got an error about /usr/bin/env python22.7 not found.

It's solved with:
sed -i 's/\(^#!.*python\).*/\12/' take into consideration that now some of the shebangs seem to be stating a particular python version.

Cheers, Johnny :o)

altkrall commented on 2014-03-19 21:09

nice (and nice PKGBUILD).

stativ commented on 2014-03-16 09:20

Oh, sorry I missed that.

mstone commented on 2014-03-15 21:06

Package needs makedepends=('mercurial').
Thanks for the PKGBUILD.

Zell_89 commented on 2014-03-15 14:25

Version 1.0 is out.

CruzR commented on 2014-03-02 17:03

Hi, version is up to 1.0.alpha.8.rc3.
They also changed the layout of the source zip, so you'll need to change the PKGBUILD to something like this:

cguenther commented on 2014-02-20 19:17

The 1.0 alpha 8 is available

isacdaavid commented on 2013-10-08 13:48

Indeed, rebuilding makes it work. Thanks

stativ commented on 2013-10-06 08:29

isacdaavid: rebuilding the package should fix it. If the problem persists, tell me and I'll have a more detailed look at it.

isacdaavid commented on 2013-10-06 02:56

makehuman won't start as of glew 1.10. This is what I get in the terminal:
./makehuman: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

stativ commented on 2013-06-01 18:03

verbalshadow: Thank you for pointing that out. I didn't know that there was an icon in the sources.

Anonymous comment on 2013-05-28 22:30

Thank you for making this PKGBUILD.

Any reason why this doesn't use the makehuman.png from in the source as it's icon. The current one is a bit on the ugly side.

msx commented on 2013-05-08 22:44

Thanks for the PKGBUILD.

Anonymous comment on 2010-12-06 04:23

Your tarball has some issues. AUR guidelines suggest to not include binaries. Such as:
Other TUs seems to think an icon or two is okay, but maybe you should ask upstream to include it. Please fix this.

Anonymous comment on 2010-11-06 01:52

Ah, thanks! That works.

stativ commented on 2010-10-30 08:14

gdweber: You have to remove sources. I had to change the patch but patching fails if different patch was applied before.

Anonymous comment on 2010-10-30 01:12

If I understand this correctly, there seems to be an error in the patch for the Makefile.

Just changed the two package version lines in the PKGBUILD:

and it installs Alpha5 (the latest as of June 16th, 2010).
