@bemxio: Sure I will take a look at it when I have the chance.

Could you please modify the /usr/bin script to make its own Wine prefix instead? The Wine package guidelines recommend that approach, and OpenMPT's settings would be written in the seperate prefix too.

I've written a basic one, feel free to use it if you'd like!


export WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX="$HOME/.openmpt/wine"

if [ ! -d "$HOME/.openmpt" ]; then
    # create the directory for the wine prefix
    mkdir -p "$HOME/.openmpt/wine" || exit 1

    # make a symlink to the executable
    ln -s /usr/share/openmpt/OpenMPT.exe "$HOME/.openmpt/openmpt" || exit 1

WINEDEBUG=-all wine "$HOME/.openmpt/openmpt" "$@"

@JackMacWindows: Thanks for bringing this to my attention. Looks like this was reported upstream and fixed in the test build:

I pushed a new pkgrel version that applies the hotfix described in the comment there.

The latest update appears to have a bug in the Wine compatibility layer's source code that prevents it from compiling:

misc/mptOS.cpp: In function ‘mpt::mptx::osinfo::windows::Version OpenMPT::mpt::OS::Windows::Version::GetMinimumAPILevel()’:
misc/mptOS.cpp:172:54: error: ‘constexpr mpt::mptx::osinfo::windows::Version::Version()’ is private within this context
  172 |                 return mpt::osinfo::windows::Version();
      |                                                      ^
In file included from misc/mptOS.h:17,
                 from misc/mptOS.cpp:12:
src/mpt/osinfo/windows_version.hpp:101:19: note: declared private here
  101 |         constexpr Version() noexcept

This can be fixed by using sudo vim /usr/share/openmpt/ to open the zip file, select src/mpt/osinfo/windows_version.hpp, and on line 100 above Version(), replace private: with public:. Then :wq, :q to save and quit, and relaunch OpenMPT to compile the new changes.

@oskenso: I can't reproduce your issue on a fresh Arch VM install. Searching around, it seems you might want to try updating your system and trying again (e.g.

I'm getting an error when trying to cleanbuild, i'm using libraqm 0.9.0-1 from extra/libraqm

Oops, fixed by adding unzip to makedepends and bumped pkgrel up to 3. Thanks for the heads up!

You added unzip to prepare() but didn't add it to makedepends:

@nyanpasu64: I think the old set of depends/optdepends were carried over from when I originally adopted the package. I spent a bit of time going through the dependencies - seems like everything works without wine-mono or wine-gecko from my testing. ccache is also optional since it's only needed for Wine native host support. New pkgrel should address this. Thanks for bringing this up!

Why does this depend on wine-mono? It's a large download (128 megabytes to download, 317 megabytes once extracted), and OpenMPT still works after uninstalling it (pacman -Rdd wine-mono). (wine-gecko takes up 109 megabytes once extracted, but is necessary for the .chm help files to load.)
