@nicocot best ask the pamac people. But generally removing the build directory pamac used for polybar should force pamac to recompile

nicocot commented on 2019-10-05 14:36

@patrick96 I'm using pamac-manager and I don't know how to recompile with this package manager. I removed and reinstalled the polybar-git package several times with pamac-manager, without success.

@nicocot Please only use the symlink method as a last resort when you can't recompile. It could potentially break other programs.

nicocot commented on 2019-10-05 14:29

I fixed the issue with the symlink method: sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libjsoncpp.so.21 /usr/lib/libjsoncpp.so.20

No other package has broken so far.

@zack6849 neither, recompiling polybar will fix it. See https://github.com/polybar/polybar/wiki/Known-Issues#error-while-loading-shared-libraries-libjsoncpp

Latest revision isn't working, I get the following when trying to run it:

polybar: error while loading shared libraries: libjsoncpp.so.20: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Is this an issue with your package or upstream?

Thanks.

I had the same issue as @clpwn due to pyenv. Fixed by running "pyenv global system" before building.

haawda commented on 2019-09-09 21:05

Builds fine without i3-wm installed.

@patrick96 fixed it.

For the record, my problem was that I had a virtualenv plugin in my shell that was throwing a non-system python binary earlier in my PATH.

Anyone else having this issue: type python3. Make sure your system python is the one you're using when building.

@clpwn xcbgen detection works fine for me. Do you use Anaconda for python? If so, there is a known issue with xcbgen detection: https://github.com/jaagr/polybar/wiki/Known-Issues#missing-required-python-module-xcbgen-with-anaconda

Otherwise you may be experiencing the same issue as in https://github.com/jaagr/polybar/issues/1496. The OP has yet to provide us with the results of our troubleshooting instructions. If anaconda is indeed not the problem, we would appreciate it if you could go over to the linked issue and help with troubleshooting.
