I was looking around the plplot site the other day, and saw that it can be built with qt5 rather than qt4 by specifying -DPLPLOT_USE_QT5=1 on the cmake line.

Updating to use QT5 would remove the dependency on qt4 which is no longer in the repositories.

The only significant drawback I can see is that there is no QT5 ps driver. I'm not sure whether there is any dependency beyond qt5-base as I have a full qt5 install on my KDE-based system.

Thank you. Adding a patch to the PKGBUILD to solve this issue.

@Cjen1 It seems to be plplot issue. Similar nextcloud-client issue:

I've succeeded to solve the problem by adding

'#include <QPainterPath>'

to the file /plplot-5.15.0/bindings/qt_gui/plqt.cpp

I'm having difficult installing this:

/home/cjen1/.cache/yay/plplot/src/plplot-5.15.0/bindings/qt_gui/plqt.cpp:222:22: error: aggregate ‘QPainterPath path’ has incomplete type and cannot be defined

Thanks, the PKGBUILD has been updated.

PLplot is affected by the gcc 6 change is the isystem flag, causing an error like this (at least for me) :

/usr/include/c++/9.1.0/cstdlib:75:15: fatal error: stdlib.h: No such file or directory 75 | #include_next <stdlib.h> |

I fixed it by adding this command between the call to cmake and the call to make in the build script : find . -name '*.make' -exec sed -i 's|-isystem /usr/include ||g' '{}' ';' It just removes the '-isystem /usr/include' from every Makefiles generated by CMake, which were causing the issue.

End of last year gnudatalanguage was updated to use the version of plpot. It needs plplot>5.11 to be compiled with "-DOLD_WXWIDGETS:BOOL=ON" acouring to the README.

Is there any chance to get plplot compiled with that option enabled? Or anyhing known against such a change?

Thanks, Jan
