Upstream hasn't been updated in years, I think it's fair to call this package dead

It's not just not showing, but freezes immediately when it opens.

Try opening it while audio is playing: it should show levels, but stuck wherever they were at that moment.

I don't think the original maintainer (Lennart Pottering) is still working on it, and I don't know how to get word to him that it's broken.

There's a gtk3 port, itself untouched for seven years, which I have just packaged for the AUR, but it has the same problem.

I'll take a look, but I don't have any idea what's going wrong.

Stopped working. Builds fine, starts also, doesn't show anything on bars anymore.

@veyen No need to edit upstream source, just change the PKGBUILD: CXXFLAGS="$CXXFLAGS -std=c++11" ./configure --prefix=/usr See for explanation in a similar issue.

Error in compiling (due to new C++ update?): note: C++11 ‘noexcept’ only available with -std=c++11 or -std=gnu++11 error: ‘noexcept’ does not name a type error: expected initializer before ‘noexcept’ etc. etc. Fix by adding compile flag -std=c++11 in the file.

@cgtx: fixed, thanks.

Since the source is git protocol, you need to put git in the makedepends. Otherwise, this package fails to build in a clean chroot.

It looks like pavumeter mishandles --disable-lynx. Adding it to makedepends then.

Build breaks: "configure: error: *** Sorry, you have to install lynx or use --disable-lynx ***" - lynx needs to be added to the dependencies, or the package needs to use that option.
