Please add dependency qtermwidget, as of this commit:

Otherwise, compilation fails.

Looks like auto-hide ability for tray indicator (KDE Plasma) is not there anymore. Any specific reason the Auto visibility in KDE system tray settings not working?

DH4 commented on 2016-11-28 06:31

Just adopted this package and fixed several issues. Successfully building on x86_64, unable to test i686.

Dear nikmil

in PKGBUILD, line 65


it should read _cpucount instead

LeonardK commented on 2015-05-17 13:33

Can you please use a more meaningful pkgver() please? This would make it more easy to check whether rebuilding makes sense by comparing with the release-versions.

(eg: git describe --long --tags | sed 's/^v//;s/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g'
this would result as time of writing in:

PKGBUILD: line 49: qmake: command not found

ishitatsuyuki commented on 2015-03-12 02:30

Why not use makepkg's integrated feature and create a special build-system-like thing?

mrbit commented on 2015-01-28 19:31

dmoebius :)

dmoebius commented on 2015-01-28 15:00

It works now. Thanks, mrbit! :)

mrbit commented on 2015-01-27 11:50

ok, test please. :)

dmoebius commented on 2015-01-27 10:48

I can confirm the problems reported by p-we. Could you please fix it?
Furthermore, namcap reports the following problems:

octopi-git W: File (lib/octopi/) exists in a non-standard directory.
octopi-git W: File (lib/octopi/pacmanhelper) exists in a non-standard directory.
octopi-git E: Dependency qt4 detected and not included (libraries ['usr/lib/', 'usr/lib/'] needed in files ['lib/octopi/pacmanhelper'])
octopi-git W: Dependency qt5-base included but already satisfied

p-we commented on 2015-01-02 22:20

Package has errors with pacman 4.2. Fix:
1) Comment out md5sums
2) Install #services to /usr/lib

mrbit commented on 2014-11-04 22:57

ok thanks, argymeg, done :)

argymeg commented on 2014-11-04 22:46

My bad, it doesn't work at all without qt5-declarative. You should probably add it to depends.

argymeg commented on 2014-11-04 22:38

True; however, with just qt5-base, building still fails:
==> Starting build...
Cloning into 'octopi-build'...
Project ERROR: Unknown module(s) in QT: quickwidgets quick

I solved it by installing qt5-declarative. You should probably add it to makedepends.

mrbit commented on 2014-11-03 07:17

Hi, argymeg, yes now work with the QT5

argymeg commented on 2014-11-03 01:26

Afraid it doesn't build for me since the last update. At first it fails with a very not-intuitive error about not finding qmake; apparently qtchooser picks Qt5 by default, even though I don't have it installed, so I have to force Qt4 first ('export QT_SELECT=4'). Even then, however, build fails after a while (

mrbit commented on 2014-11-01 12:36

Hi, kopiersperre now work.

kopiersperre commented on 2014-11-01 00:00

build fails (

Bitl0rd commented on 2014-09-06 15:47

thanks perfect gui!!!

vinadoros commented on 2014-02-21 20:40

Thanks for that. I noticed you've added "xterm" as 'makedepends'. Can "xterm" be added to 'depends' as well? Just so that it won't get removed by pacman unless octopi-git is removed...once again, thanks for keeping track of this package.

mrbit commented on 2014-02-17 06:48

Ok vinadoros, done.

vinadoros commented on 2014-02-17 02:54

Thanks for maintaining this package mrbit. I was wondering if you could modify the pkgbuild to have "xterm" be a dependency. This terminal is required in order to make the program not freak out when installing from AUR (the program freezes when you go to install a package in yaourt group if you don't have xterm).

mrbit commented on 2013-11-08 16:33

Thanks dmoebius, done.

dmoebius commented on 2013-11-08 12:45

Note: recent octopi git contains a new binary "octopi-notifier", a small app for the system tray. It would be cool if you'd include it in PKGBUILD.

sl1pkn07 commented on 2013-06-21 10:51

/lib is symbolic link to /usr/lib

install -D -m755 notifier/bin/pacmanhelper ${pkgdir}/lib/octopi/pacmanhelper

pkgbuild fail
