@bartus Thanks a lot for your reply and patch!

Disclaimer: Every one having problem compiling meshlab with qt5(5.11) Meshlab won't build against qt5(5.11) but will work perfectly fine with one. Just build the package in chroot with downgraded qt5-base package and install it in your production environment.

@pars: Development is pinned at qt5.9, current LTS version, and there's no plan to support the newer version for the time being.

@pars: Already reported upstream. If it won't be fixed soon, will try to come up with a patch. For now, one could ignore qt5 update, or build in chroot with qt5 downgraded and install with pacman -Udd to skip deps check, and copy missing libs form chroot to a production server.

Hi guys,

After the recent update to Qt 5.11, I no longer manage to build meshlab. Is this something that can be addressed here, or only with the original developers?

Thanks in advance!

Genius! You're the best! It's a part of the package now and I'll test stuff like Geometric Measures when I have a bit of free time.

Thank you!

@cmsigler: Should be working now, please confirm.

TY very much! :)

[UPDATE: Please see comment below about problem.]

@cmsigler: You are correct, there are some files that are not copied to distrib\plugins by make script (mainly xmls for measure/mutualinfo/skechfab plugins). Will fix this asap.

strace meshlab

openat(AT_FDCWD, "/usr/lib/meshlab/plugins/libfilter_measure.xml", O_RDONLY|O_CLOEXEC) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

Please recompile package, as on my system nither edit_mutualcorrs nor filter_isoparametrization requires They both links to witch is a part of gcc-libs (7.3.0-1)

I hope this isn't a noob-type question. I've installed meshlab from AUR. My build seems to be missing a few filter functions.

Under Help->Plugin Info, provides no plugin functions (no pull-down arrow next to its listing). Most others have functions (although and don't). Namely, I'm looking for "Compute Geometric Measures" and friends (see

I've tried Googling everything I can think of and haven't found any helpful hints. Is this my silly configuration problem? TIA.

[P.S.: problem was stupid, an ancient, un-updated atlas-lapack-base package. Installing lapack along with blas and cblas fixed it. HTH.]
