Building manually gives the same error. There is a conflict in the PKGBUILD file of 'octopi':

pkgname=('octopi' 'octopi-pacmanhelper' 'octopi-notifier-qt5' 'octopi-notifier-frameworks' 'octopi-repoeditor' 'octopi-cachecleaner')

It builds both the 'octopi-notifier-qt5' and the 'octopi-notifier-frameworks' packages and those two are in conflict (look at their respective PKGBUILD files).

I successfully installed 'octopi' with yaourt by editing its PKGBUILD file and removing any mention of 'octopi-notifier-qt5'. This way it only builds 'octopi-notifier-frameworks'. The conflict error is no longer triggered.

I think it would be best if the PKGBUILD asks the user whether to install 'octopi-notifier-qt5' or 'octopi-notifier-frameworks'.

@dracorp, yaourt won't work for installing this package. Please, build it manually, or use pacaur. Read previous comments for details on why.

Clean installation of octopi:

yaourt -S octopi
looking for conflicting packages...

When building this in a headless environment, it complains about missing GL/gl.h include. So mesa should probably be a makedepend.

FTR, error is:

In file included from /usr/include/qt/QtGui/qopenglcontext.h:60:0,
from /usr/include/qt/QtGui/QtGui:32,
from src/main.cpp:29:
/usr/include/qt/QtGui/qopengl.h:129:21: fatal error: GL/gl.h: No such file or directory

compilation terminated.

I cannot build the package, it gives me the error "c++11 support needed from Qt"

adding this at the bottom of the prepare function fixes it:

echo "CONFIG += c++11" >> notifier/pacmanhelper/
echo "CONFIG += c++11" >> repoeditor/
echo "CONFIG += c++11" >> cachecleaner/

I'll leave it here if someone has the same problem

The notifications stopped in the new release, but the bug was fixed in master. Can you update this package as well? Thanks.

After speaking with the developer, I have decided to stop following the Manjaro releases. Please, do not mark the package out of date because of a new Manjaro package.

No, the developer working for the new features, check the changelog.txt history. He will tagging a release, if the features will be enough stable for a release. Now we use the instable git source as stable... If devs of Manjaro know better than dev of octopi, they should fork octopi, not make FAKE octopi releases...

ImNtReal commented on 2016-10-21 16:24

Because the developer seems to have stopped tagging releases. This is based on the commit Manjaro uses for their 0.8.5 release.

kikadf commented on 2016-10-21 16:08

Don't understand, why do you build instable git version as stable release?
Use octopi-git and alpm-octopi-utils-git pkgnames instead of FAKE pkgver...
