@class101 Fixed. For future, do not flag package to be out of date if it fails to compile. That option is only for indicating that there's new upstream release/version.

I think recent gcc v10+ update broke the compiling part

@Ataraxy The short answer is, it's unmaintained, I work around this with this I didn't check how other distros do this but as You can see it's not Arch specific. TBF whole p7zip seems to be unmaintained ATM,

At install I see:

  1. Where can we find further information about this? Eg, what functions are broken and why?
  2. Is it Arch only?
  3. Has it been raised upstream?

Thank you for this useful package. Just a quick FYI for anyone else looking to add Context menu entries in other file managers: you can find the necessary commands in <source>/GUI/kde3/ in the .desktop files.

For example, in Thunar's custom actions:

name: Add to 7z archive... command: p7zipForFilemanager ad -t7z %F appearance conditions: (all)

name: Open archive with 7zFM... command: 7zFM %f appearance conditions: (other)

Was it always like that, if not, when did it started happening? Are you building this package in clean chroot? I'm using KDE and also can't exit through menu, but using Alt+F4 or 'X' in titlebar it exits normally, without segfaults.

friederbluemle commented on 2017-06-10 06:21

I'm having some really strange issues when running this GUI in Awesome WM. I cannot exit the program. Ctrl+Q / Alt+F4 does nothing, selecting "Exit" from the menu also does not do anything. Clicking the "X" in the window titlebar closes the window, but journal reports "7zFM Segmentation Process.. dumped core.."
Any ideas? Thanks.

@Frontier Thanks, package updated.

Frontier commented on 2016-05-09 08:20

To fix compilation issues with GCC 6.x regarding narrowing, change the make command inside the build() function to:

make 7zFM 7zG OPTFLAGS="-Wno-narrowing ${CFLAGS}"

sl1pkn07 commented on 2015-12-14 15:30

you can build only the GUI with 'make 7zFM 7zG'
