It seems like you need to add qt5-svg to the dependences list: I couldn't get this to build until I installed that package.

webmeister commented on 2015-08-18 14:22

Builds with Qt 5 now, but I had to remove the GEOIMAGE option, since those files did not compile successfully.

samdraz commented on 2015-08-18 13:56

transition to qt5

canatan commented on 2013-03-14 16:19 was built and worked when i put qmake-qt4 ,lrease-qt4 instead of qmake and lrelease in PKGBUILD. thanks.

Correction of miblon's previous post. I was able to compile Merkaartor by simply appending "-qt4" to both "lrelease" and "qmake". This way, the Qt4 packages, paths, and settings are enforced.

miblon commented on 2013-03-02 23:23

Since 2013-03-01 this package is broken due to hardcoded dependencies to qt directories. This problem cannot be fixed by simply editing PKGBUILD

webmeister commented on 2012-06-08 12:16

Please add gdal and proj to dependencies. These packages are required as of 0.18:

#include <unistd.h>
in 3rdparty/qtsingleapplication-2.6_1-opensource/src/qtlocalpeer.cpp does the trick for the first errors, but there are others…

mathieu.clabaut commented on 2012-05-06 10:37

Same problem here… There is a bug report there :

xilef commented on 2012-04-23 06:23

Currently fails to compile with issues in /3rdparty/qtsingleapplication-2.6_1-opensource/src/qtlocalpeer.cpp: "error: ‘::getuid’ has not been declared". I am not sure if this is an issue with GCC 4.7 or a missing package. Anyone else have similar issues?

eMerzh commented on 2012-01-18 19:50

Ok thanks Maxr :) pkg updated

eMerzh commented on 2012-01-16 17:39

Hi Maxr and vesath ...
thanks for your help...but for now, i've trouble building ither your or my PKGBUILD : collect2: ld returned 1 exit status...
i've update it anyway...

Maxr commented on 2012-01-16 15:09

@vesath: Working. Thanks!

vesath commented on 2012-01-16 06:34

FYI, I have put together a (working) updated and cleaned-up PKGBUILD:

vesath commented on 2012-01-16 05:37

Add the following hack just above the lrelease line to fix that MOC bug: echo 'QMAKE_MOC = $$QMAKE_MOC -DBOOST_TT_HAS_OPERATOR_HPP_INCLUDED' >> src/

vesath commented on 2012-01-16 04:28

In addition to the boost issue, this package needs to depend on qtwebkit (rather than just qt): without it, you get: QMapControl/browserimagemanager.h:27:23: fatal error: qwebframe.h: No such file or directory

Maxr commented on 2012-01-13 14:39

Same here.

Anonymous comment on 2012-01-13 14:32

Does this work for anybody?

On my machine it fails with:
usr/include/boost/type_traits/detail/has_binary_operator.hp:50: Parse error at "BOOST_JOIN"
make[1]: *** [moc_Document.cpp] Error 1

I have Qt 4.8, boost and all other dependencies including gdal installed.

orbisvicis commented on 2011-03-03 00:36

As far as I know, either of them will work, but I haven't run any tests. I actually used the PKGBUILD posted in the comments of zbar-gtk ( since I run both qt and gtk applications. Its not like a GNOME vs KDE thing, at least not until the QT developers decide to merge KDElibs ;)

Actually I think zbar-gtk and zbar-qt will conflict with each other. Anyway all merkaartor needs are these files (I think):

Anonymous comment on 2011-03-02 05:37

@orbisvicis: thanks for the updated PKGBUILD but zbar doesn't exist in AUR. Should that be zbar-qt or zbar-gtk?

orbisvicis commented on 2011-02-16 21:48

Updated PKGBUILD for one month @

QT>=4.7 is required to avoid a clipping issue, when using it I think boost is no longer needed.
Getting ready for 0.18, gdal and proj are now hard dependencies. Gdal depends on proj through libgeotiff but I listed it anyway.
Build localization files, thanks BejotEl
Added dependencies on hicolor-icon-theme, libproxy and zbar (available in aur)
Split PKGBUILD into build() and package()
Various other tweaks

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

simon04 commented on 2010-09-05 21:32

Could you please either remove the GPSDLIB=1 line or add the dependency. Currently building just fails with the following error on my machine. After removing GPSDLIB=1 from the PKGBUILD file the build succeeded though.
> GPS/qgpsdevice.h:266:22: fatal error: libgpsmm.h: No such file or directory
Did you consider a separate package of merkaartor with the gps support (e.g. merkaartor-gps)?
Thanks in advance!

Anonymous comment on 2010-08-26 16:17

still no localization files (but this is an upstream error)
lrelease src/
before qmake and it works ...

eMerzh commented on 2010-08-26 07:17

it has a build dep of gpsd. if you do not want it remove the GPSDLIB=1 line... i'll try to figure out ou to do this

eMerzh commented on 2010-08-25 20:24

@orbisvicis: Thanks, pkg updated... feel free to comment again ;-)

orbisvicis commented on 2010-08-25 19:01

Repost, requested:


eMerzh commented on 2010-08-22 17:29

I can try to update it if you flag it as orphaned.
Thanks for your work :)

Anonymous comment on 2010-07-21 07:24

I don't use Merkaartor and don't have the time to keep it up to date anymore. Anybody wanna step in? I'll disown the pkg then…

orbisvicis commented on 2010-07-15 02:47

Updated PKGBUILD and new merkaartor.install

QT dep actually 4.5.3, but Merkaartor webpage suggested preferably 4.6.x
Actually it seems this bug ( fix requires qt>=4.6.3

Gah it takes ..forever.. to build

I'm not sure it actually depends on libxml... only QT_XML_LIB. Funny how libxml* is not a QT dependency
