@MightyPork: Applied, Thank you for the patch.

This package does not build.

Fix by using custom.patch (fixes the build error and also enables hiragana by default, so you don't need to click in the tray menu)

and adding

patch -Np0 -i "${srcdir}/custom.patch"

at the top of prepare () {

then run updpkgsums and makepkg -f

I intend to bump latest commit of mozc (which fixes ibus-mozc issue) with latest zipcode but cannot it due to trouble. Please give me some time. I might change file hosting service.

Minor issue: This requires pkg-config, but it's not listed as a dependency. Noticed setting it up on a fresh machine.

Hi, on an up to date ArchLinux, using clang 4.0 from testing, I get this error when building this PKGBUILD:

clang-4.0: error: unknown argument: '-fvar-tracking-assignments'

If I remove it from the DEBUG_CFLAGS and the DEBUG_CXXFLAGS in /etc/makepkg.conf it does build. Since this argument is present in the default configuration, you should probably workaround it somehow.

It should be fixed on 2.20.2673.102-2.
Thank you for the info.

Someone on IRC was having problems building this package with pacaur, and it turned out that the build system was calling `python` when it expected to get `python2`.[1] Doing some investigating in this PKGBUILD, I see you do actually try to work around this.

However... makepkg supports doing the download/extraction/prepare separate from the build, using the logic `makepkg --nobuild && makepkg --noextract`.[2] This is a perfectly valid use case, and PKGBUILDs are expected to work when used like that.

Setting environment variables -- in this case $PATH -- within the prepare() function and expecting them to still be available in the build() function breaks this logic and WILL NOT WORK.
Please fix your PKGBUILD to conform to proper makepkg standards. :)

[1] This is a definite upstream bug, and on my advice that IRC user opened the following bug report which if fixed should remove the need for such hacks:
[2] pacaur happens to trigger this issue, because it uses separate extraction and build steps for internal reasons. A number of PKGBUILDs that are flawed like this one is, have been discovered as a result.

Please ask fcitx-mozc maintainer if emacs-mozc is not available in it.

mkasu commented on 2017-01-10 05:18

I'm interested in using emacs-mozc together with fcitx-mozc. Down below you said you'd integrate it into a "mozc-svn" package, but I couldn't find one with that name. Any advice?

Please see nash's latest comment.
Is the HiDPI problem fixed on qt5 version? If so, I'll change to use qt5.
