someone with the same error?

Thanks @skunkos, Fixed ! For fast contact :

skunkos commented on 2016-10-17 18:05 (UTC)

Solved by installing pkg-config, maybe it should be added to makedeps.

skunkos commented on 2016-10-17 17:57 (UTC)

Last version gives error: Probably some missing deps in PKGBUILD?

funilrys commented on 2016-10-06 20:39 (UTC)

Updated to v2.11.0 ! If there's a problem please let me know ! For fast contact :

gbc921 commented on 2016-08-10 16:17 (UTC)

Please update version to 2.11.0 pkgver=2.11.0 I have build and it installs fine here (x64). Tks,

webdawg commented on 2016-05-24 04:14 (UTC)

How is anyone flagging this out of date when it is the git?

PedsXing commented on 2014-02-03 14:53 (UTC)

XMPP login issues are apparently fixed in 2.10.9:

PedsXing commented on 2014-02-02 21:44 (UTC)

XMPP has stopped working (does not log in) for me since the last update. Works with the same configuration and pidgin from [Extra].

commented on 2012-10-09 15:50 (UTC)

Seems like "farsight" is now called "farstream". Please, add --disable-farstream to ./configure

erdbeer commented on 2012-08-15 20:16 (UTC)

:) another thing: this package depends on dbus-glib. Please add it to depends or ./configure with --disable-dbus

commented on 2012-04-11 23:36 (UTC)

erdbeer: Nice catch thkx, fixed. Also a BIG thank you for NOT marking pkg out of date....

erdbeer commented on 2012-04-10 22:38 (UTC)

The aur helper I'm using (packer) can't find the make-dependency perlxml because it is provided by perl-xml-parser. Please rename it in the PKGBUILD.

commented on 2011-11-20 01:14 (UTC)

Tenzer again, pkg_config is part of base-devel group; which MUST be installed to build/install AUR packages See

commented on 2011-11-19 23:04 (UTC)

I had to install the "pkg-config" package in order to install the package, otherwise it gave me the following error message: You must have GLib 2.16.0 or newer development headers installed to build. If you have these installed already you may need to install pkg-config so I can find them. Perhaps it could be added to the make dependencies?

deimos commented on 2011-07-28 11:42 (UTC)

please add --disable-farsight to the ./configure string as mentioned previously by mar77i.

semeion commented on 2011-05-15 06:55 (UTC)

i don know the reason, but this package not working for me... i can finish all yaourt proccess, compile and make all, but he don´t install. he finish all yaourt proccess and ask-me if i want to install... i ans yes, and done. but not install. o.0 he only install gtkspell library...

For those who do not want gstreamer dependencies, just remove farsight2 from the list of dependencies in the PKGBUILD. This is a requirement, however, for those who want audio/videoconferencing.

mikeym commented on 2011-01-28 21:47 (UTC)

PKGBUILD ( the required changes to remove farsight2 as a dependency and add libxml2 (tested and found to be required). Now gstreamer is truly not a dependency (or dependency of a dependency).

tzok commented on 2010-11-30 12:41 (UTC)

During make, I got: configure: error: GNU gettext tools not found; required for intltool I can see that gettext package is from base group, so I have no idea why is it not installed at my Arch ;), but either way, you can add it to dependencies section IMO.

mar77i commented on 2010-11-28 19:09 (UTC)

oh, and while we're at it, farsight2 is superfluous... if compiling would fail, add --disable-farsight to the ./configure string and add libxml2 to the deps :)

commented on 2010-11-28 17:22 (UTC)

that was wierd, I'm pretty sure i've NEVER quoted anything like that before.... Perhaps was left over from orig PKGBUILD and I just never caught it?? No matter how it got there fixed now. Good eye and thanks (again)

mar77i commented on 2010-11-28 16:30 (UTC)

provides= and conflicts= are quoted wrong, too...

commented on 2010-09-20 03:32 (UTC)

fixed my idiocy. thanks mar77i

mar77i commented on 2010-09-18 11:42 (UTC)

umm, gstreamer is included, although the description states differently

commented on 2010-06-18 22:32 (UTC)

Adopted/updated/maintaining..... As you were.

gaougalos commented on 2010-06-01 09:22 (UTC)

Bump to version 2.7.1 Pre-compiled package:

anrxc commented on 2010-05-26 16:02 (UTC)

gaougalos, it does not build that way if you don't have gstreamer. Like --disable-gstreamer means nothing, there's an error about gs.h.

gaougalos commented on 2010-05-23 09:34 (UTC)

Change the pkgver=2.6.6 to pkgver=2.7.0 and the md5sums to md5sums=('63a36f91d29f5ac5a402ffd2d7dbbb72')
