Thanks for the clarification and information cyber. If anyone wants to adopt this PKGBUILD before I get around to updating it, feel free as my time is limited atm

Yes hello, the github repo is the current maintained official version. It's not a fork. The old maintainers have abandoned it so I am trying to breathe new life into it.

There is a community of folks interested in the project so I'm trying to modernize some parts and make it easier to contribute to. If you would like to help out that'd be super awesome!

Please see the "maintainers" section of the README: for more info.

The main piece of the project is libprojectM. The other applications (pulseaudio, jack, test, etc) are essentially demo applications. If you are having trouble building the library itself that's a major problem that we can try to solve. As far as the companion demo applications, we're updating the makefiles etc for them as needed.

At this point in time, building shared and static versions of libprojectM should be as simple as a bog-standard ./configure && make && sudo make install. If that fails on arch, let's try to figure that out. There is a new demo application built on sdl (projectm-sdl) that is dead simple and cross-platform that I would suggest bundling, if you do want an application to test out the library. It's lacking in features but is supported by the build system (which is just plain GNU autotools) and a helpful example for people looking at an example of how to use the library.

Thanks for the interest!

It's still unclear what the relationship this git repo has with the upstream projectM repo. i'm not certain if this is an unofficial fork or the official repo of projectM (i believe its the former)

Some really "strange" stuff in this repo - look at BUILDING_LINUX.txt lol. Doesn't look like they bothered to write build scripts for libvisual and other components.

Honestly - i'm not sure how much value there is in maintaining this set of packages. Orphaning.

I believe upstream is replacing cmake for autotools (for some reason). This PKGBUILD will need to be reworked... @milkmiruku Do you want to take over this package? I have limited time at the moment

commenting out DESTDIR="$pkgdir" make install in package_projectm-git(), and it next fails for projectM-libvisual with

CMake Error: The source directory "/var/tmp/trizen-milk/projectm-git/src/projectm/src/projectM-libvisual" does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt.
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.
make: *** No rule to make target 'install'.  Stop.

INSTALL seems out of date so reporting upstream.

I removed the patch line and got:

==> Starting build()...
CMake Error: The source directory "/var/tmp/trizen-milk/projectm-git/src/projectm" does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt.
Specify --help for usage, or press the help button on the CMake GUI.
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

So I updated the PKGBUILD to the latest build instructions, i.e., ./ && ./configure && make

==> Starting package_projectm-git()...
make: *** build/src/NativePresets: No such file or directory.  Stop.
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package_projectm-git().

then, after changing the incorrect "build" directory to "project" in the build paths, I get

make: Entering directory '/var/tmp/trizen-milk/projectm-git/src/projectm/src/NativePresets'
make: *** No rule to make target 'install'.  Stop.
make: Leaving directory '/var/tmp/trizen-milk/projectm-git/src/projectm/src/NativePresets'
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package_projectm-git().

Current git rev-list --count HEAD is 1437 so I'm flagging out of date.

The prepare() function fails with:

can't find file to patch at input line 4

Also the compilation fails.

ProjectM uses Qt5 now:

Best visualization out there!
