@cyberpatrol: When I first tried to run the PKGBUILD, it stopped with an error because it couldn't find an 'unzip' command on my system. So it is definitely missing a build dependency. After I manually installed 'unzip' with pacman, the PKGBUILD did run successfully for me. Thus the mention.

@mikan: Zip packages are supported by bsdtar and unpacked automatically by makepkg. So no need for unzip in makedepends. Btw., unzip is for zip archives and gunzip for gzip archives (usually as gzipped tar archives, .tar.gz or .tgz), two totally different compression formats.

'unzip' should be added to the makedepends array; it's needed to unpack the source archive.
I tried to use gunzip instead, but it wouldn't work.

@Tomin Thanks for the tip.

I had to change one line to get it building fine.
sh ./

I also encountered the error described by BlueC:
fatal error: jni.h: No such file or directory
I found that right after installing java-environment the environment variable JAVA_HOME is not yet set for the current logged in user, which causes the error. A logout and login should fix this.

Another issue I met was ./ called from PKGBUILD line 38 not having executable permission. I fixed this by inserting "chmod +x ./" in PGKBUILD.

I managed to make it build by addding correct include paths in the PKGBUILD but that seems hacky (I've no idea how this should be done gracefully).

Build failing here:

gcc -Wall -O2 -D_REENTRANT -DGNU_SOURCE -march=x86-64 -mtune=generic -O2 -pipe -fstack-protector --param=ssp-buffer-size=4 -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -fPIC -I"/usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk/jre/include" -I"/usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk/jre/include/linux" -I./mmx -I./mmx -c net_sourceforge_dvb_projectx_video_IDCTFast.c
net_sourceforge_dvb_projectx_video_IDCTFast.c:1:17: fatal error: jni.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
make: *** [net_sourceforge_dvb_projectx_video_IDCTFast.o] Error 1

Seems the include paths are wrong... jni.h is actually in /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk/include/

Is this something wrong with the PKBUILD or my environment?

Ok I fixed the projectx.desktop, should be ok now.

Anonymous comment on 2011-12-15 19:05

Well, projectx.desktop must have been changed I guess or I changed it once on my system. Don't know anymore. But it's an upstream issue, because the .desktop file is in the source tarball. So you'd better file a bug report to upstream. But keep in mind that the script /usr/bin/projectx is a downstream script only installed by this PKGBUILD.

Btw., Exec=projectx instead of Exec=/usr/bin/projectx is sufficient even if it, of course, doesn't matter.
