I installed and ran ncview (2.1.8-1) ok, and got the warning about FontStruct, but the interface was in some weird language... Installing xorg-fonts-misc fixed my problem as well, although I still get the warning, the interface fonts are ok now. Thanks @OdinEidolon for sharing your fix.

It fails to build for me!

Installing xorg-fonts-misc fixes the fonts problem reported by user Living, please add as dependency.

PS: thank you GG for the package ;)

Getting: ncview: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Linking to .2 works, but it's not really a neat solution.

Compilation and installation work smoothly. When I try ncview, I get the following error. Are there any further font packages that ncview needs?

Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-helvetica-*-r-*-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-*-*" to type FontStruct
Warning: Unable to load any usable ISO8859 font
Warning: Unable to load any usable ISO8859 font
Error: Aborting: no font found

Hi, I have uploaded an updated version of the PKGBUILD with a "prepare" function and proper quoting around the path variables. You can find it here: Thanks for maintaining this package. Regards, Xyne

@felixonmars, thanks for your PKGBUILD review!

The " || return 1" thing is not needed anymore as it's been default behavior. Also, please quote "$srcdir" and "$pkgdir", thanks!
