ah - I realized that polybar -vvv doesn't use the proper release number, but g5cd7295a is indeed the latest commit... EDIT: gotcha - looking forward to 3.5 :D

@jameh That's how non-release commits are versioned unfortunately. 3.4.0-106-g5cd7295a is newer than 3.4.3. The master branch where git describe gets the version information doesn't know about patch releases (3.4.X), it only knows about minor releases (3.X.0).

But we want to adapt a different branching scheme in 3.5.0, so that this doesn't happen anymore.

I feel like I might be messing something up, but this only installs 3.4.0-106-g5cd7295a for me which is out-of-date. Looking at the PKGBUILD, git -C polybar describe --long --tags returns 3.4.0-106-g5cd7295a whereas git -C polybar log shows the most recent commits. (We're past 3.4.3 now)

@milk Thanks, fixed

@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.

patrick96 commented on 2019-10-05 14:30

@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
