@chelqo: Well, I guess it tells you that it misses the patch file. So you'll have to add that to your commit, too.

Dear @aggraef and @cbertelli, I have been trying to update the PKGBUILD with your contributions for days, I can update any other of my packages except this, and I do not know where to investigate the causes. The error is generated in the patch file, which is present in the directory next to the PKGBUILD and POTFILES.skip, but for something I ignore does not recognize it: $ cd pdfchain $ ls fix_crash_on_startup.patch pdfchain.install PKGBUILD POTFILES.skip $ mksrcinfo $ git commit -am "Update to" [master e5a6f13] Update to 1 file changed, 1 insertion(+), 1 deletion(-) $ git push Counting objects: 13, done.

@cbertelli, that's wonderful, thanks a bunch for pointing that out! I can confirm that it works after adding the patch. @chelqo, here's the modified PKGBUILD:

I found a solution here: Carlos Maddela submitted this patch that was effective. Maybe chelqo could evaluate it and possibly include it.

aggraef commented on 2017-04-07 23:05 (UTC)

Actually, it seems to be a theme-related problem (running xfce at least). E.g., with the Arc theme, I still get the segfault at startup, but with Vertex-Maia it works all right. So if others run into this problem, try changing your theme, that might help.

@chelqo Yes, system is fully updated. Thanks for the reply, I just reinstalled the package, and it works again. Maybe some intermittent problem with one of the deps.

chelqo commented on 2017-04-07 22:07 (UTC)

I've tried it in several ways, but I do not get the error you mention Pkgbuild works well on my computers. Do you have the operating system updated?

aggraef commented on 2017-03-12 22:08 (UTC)

This application just segfaults for me (using pdftk from the pdftk-bin package): PDF Chain - A graphical user interface for the PDF Toolkit Segmentation fault (core dumped) Any ideas what's going wrong there? Has anyone seen and been able fixed this?

license array ready!

42andrising commented on 2016-02-12 17:48 (UTC)

Error with makepkg - "License must be an array." The License line in the PKGBUILD needs to be changed. Please see the diff below: < license="GPL" --- > license=('GPL')

Estimated archers: I hope this new version compiles cleanly for all. greetings!

The current PKGBUILD does not work for me... I simplified it and make it follow the guidelines: pkgname=pdfchain pkgver=0.4.2 pkgrel=1 pkgdesc="A graphical user interface for the PDF Toolkit (PDFtk)" url="" screenshot="${pkgver}/pdfchain_-_title.png" license="GPL" install=pdfchain.install arch=('i686' 'x86_64') depends=('pdftk>=2.00' 'gtkmm3' 'fontconfig' 'libpng') makedepends=('intltool' 'atkmm' 'glibmm') source=("${pkgname}-${pkgver}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}.tar.gz") md5sums=('7f090f3d415b8d2109c298cd1b3729be') build() { cd $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver ./configure --prefix=/usr make } package() { cd $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver make DESTDIR="$pkgdir" install }

'makedepends' means that package needed only for building (making) package and not needed after that. So, package intltool must be in makedepends array. More information in wiki article Sorry for my English. I hope you understand me.

Hola yury, thanks for such a quick response! One note, intltool in in extra, so you don't have to makedepends ... just add in depends. brasas

commented on 2010-11-06 09:22 (UTC)

Added to dependencies: gtkmm Added to make dependencies: intltool Thanks, brasas.

commented on 2010-11-06 04:42 (UTC)

Hello, these are the additional dependencies I required to successfully install pdfchain: intltool & gtkmm. Please add to pkgbuild. Thanks!
