If anyone is struggling with missing python modules - I found that you have to use the system python (the xcb python module is not something you can pip install, for example). I'm using asdf to manage my pythons, so for me I needed to run "asdf global python system". I hope that helps :)

@patrick96 Thanks. I managed to get polybar-git to work so I will use that for now.

@pmatos, you'll need to show use the output of the actual cmake command as well. Those entries in the CMakeErrors.txt also appear for successful builds

Is it possible there's a missing dependency. I have a branch new arch install and get in cmake errors:

Determining if the pthread_create exist failed with the following output:

@patrick96, I was already trying to install it manually, but my Downloads folder being a symlink, it seems to have confused makepkg. Thanks for the feedback though.

patrick96 commented on 2018-06-06 09:43

@drScience, if anything this is an issue with your AUR helper. Manually doing

git clone
cd polybar
makepkg -sri

in a folder that doesn't have a polybar subfolder yet should still work.

In your case deleting the /home/drscience/Downloads/polybar should work, don't know why it doesn't in this case, but it doesn't really have anything to do with polybar.

Installation fails on running makepkg:

==> Making package: polybar 3.1.0-4 (Tue 05 Jun 2018 10:45:53 PM CEST) ==> Checking runtime dependencies... ==> Checking buildtime dependencies... ==> Retrieving sources... ==> ERROR: /home/drscience/Downloads/polybar/polybar is not a clone of Aborting...

I have tried deleting the downloaded folder .../polybar (only fillde with an empty subfolder src), but this didn't help.

@teretec: You probably have your permissions somehow messed up in that folder. Does it also fail in a clean clone of this repo?

teretec commented on 2018-06-03 15:11

Installation fails:

CMake Error at bin/cmake_install.cmake:47 (file): file INSTALL cannot copy file "/tmp/pamac-build-test/polybar/src/polybar/build/bin/polybar" to "/tmp/pamac-build-test/polybar/pkg/polybar/usr/bin/polybar". Call Stack (most recent call first): cmake_install.cmake:48 (include)

The fixed PKGBUILD is up. Builds should now work with gcc 8
