For problems with conda, simply "conda deactivate", it will install. No need to purge path or remove anaconda.

@omtcyfz What would be the benefit of that?

-- Install configuration: "RelWithDebInfo"

I think it would be much better to pass -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release for the CMake configuration.

recent 1.8.4 update to jsoncpp broke polybar. fix was to simply rebuild it.

Add armv7h to the arch, builds proper on Samsung XE303C12

After reinstalling Polybar. It build correctly with the updated jsoncpp

Can confirm about the jsoncpp issue. I hadn't upgraded system packages in a while, and build polybar before upgrading. Just had to build it again after the upgrade.

@bokal Are you actually running the binary you newly compiled against jsoncpp-1.8.3? The error message you get suggests the executed polybar binary was built against an older jsoncpp version

bokal commented on 2017-12-10 08:26

Polybar builds fine with jsoncpp-1.8.3, but I would still get this error:

% polybar  
polybar: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Super ugly, but works:

% ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

The jsoncpp build issues have been resolved in the new version

The patched PKGBUILD builds for me then shits the bed at this when using pacaur:

:: polybar package(s) failed to install.

:: ensure package version does not mismatch between .SRCINFO and PKGBUILD

:: ensure package name has a VCS suffix if this is a devel package

However, doing it manually works fine.

You can still use pacaur if you really want to though, just replace the PKGBUILD with the patched one then:

cd .cache/pacaur/polybar makepkg -si
