Thank you @IslandC0der and @MarsSeed, it is working perfectly now, I can confirm this.

IslandC0der commented on 2022-06-16 17:51 (UTC)

Awesome! Was about to create a patch, looks like we're good :)

MarsSeed commented on 2022-06-16 17:49 (UTC)

Seems v4.8.7 fixed the compilation with Boost 1.79!

IslandC0der commented on 2022-06-16 17:45 (UTC)

That's odd, I've just compiled version 4.8.7 with boost 1.79.0 with no trouble

MarsSeed commented on 2022-06-16 17:44 (UTC)

Similar issue: (PrusaSlicer #8238) Boost 1.79 deprecated boost::filesystem::ofstream

LinuXXuniL commented on 2022-06-16 17:22 (UTC)

@MarsSeed, Unfortunately I am forced to use this legacy version in my specific audio setup until I find a workaround. Here it is the error I get:

@LinuXXuniL I see. Unfortunately I cannot help you with that, as I don't use this application.

But please share the build output showing the error. Maybe someome can come to your aid.

Also it might be useful to try the newest version (v4.8.7).

LinuXXuniL commented on 2022-06-16 16:06 (UTC)

@MarsSeed, it's not possible due to an error while compiling C++ objects during rebuild.

MarsSeed commented on 2022-06-16 12:30 (UTC)

@arisakamisa, in that case, you need to rebuild this package locally.

arisakamisa commented on 2022-06-16 03:47 (UTC) (edited on 2022-06-16 03:48 (UTC) by arisakamisa)

There's a new version of boost-libs that breaks pulseeffects with the error:

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

hrehfeld commented on 2022-04-17 11:57 (UTC) (edited on 2022-04-17 11:58 (UTC) by hrehfeld)

Yes, still happening after just updating the system.

I can't reproduce, is it still happening?

iontunnel commented on 2022-04-09 01:56 (UTC)

Switch to pulseeffects-legacy-git if pulseeffects-legacy isn't working for you. The problem has been fixed upstream.

cubethethird commented on 2022-04-08 15:09 (UTC)

Just did a system update and then a rebuild, but I'm left with this error:

EDIT : Turns out I had to install pkgconf.

I am also getting an error

Did not find pkg-config by name 'pkg-config' Found Pkg-config: NO Installing libsysprof-capture did not solve it, pacman -Dk shows no issues. Any help appreciated.

IslandC0der commented on 2022-02-13 00:58 (UTC)

Are you missing the package libsysprof-capture?

I have no idea how that would happen, please run pacman -Dk.

Thank you :)

IslandC0der commented on 2021-12-20 19:15 (UTC)

@andrefmrocha I just did a version bump; if you're using an aur helper, it should rebuild it for you :)

Anagastes commented on 2021-12-20 17:07 (UTC)


Sorry for the late notice. Yes, now the compilation works. :)

andrefmrocha commented on 2021-12-20 17:00 (UTC) (edited on 2021-12-20 17:00 (UTC) by andrefmrocha)

There's a new version of boost-libs that breaks pulseeffects with the error:

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

Can you recompile it?

IslandC0der commented on 2021-08-05 01:50 (UTC)

@Anagastes Does this also occur with easyeffects-git?

Anagastes commented on 2021-07-29 20:53 (UTC)


LANG=C did not help unfortunately. btw. the error is also in the git package.

IslandC0der commented on 2021-07-29 13:32 (UTC)

@Anagastes what if you add LANG=C at the start of lines 35 and 36 in the PKGBUILD?

Anagastes commented on 2021-07-27 19:27 (UTC) (edited on 2021-07-27 19:28 (UTC) by Anagastes)

Could not compile the version due to a too large length in the file "data/com.github.wwmm.pulseeffects.appdata.xml".

And the line 123

<caption xml:lang="de">Einstellen der Lautstärke und Ein-/Ausschalten von Effekten</caption>"

There was the following message.

• style-invalid         : <caption> is too long [Einstellen der Lautstärke und Ein-/Ausschalten von Effekten];longest allowed is 50 chars

I have minimally shortened the string to get to max 50 characters.

The sense of the translation is not lost.

<caption xml:lang="de">Lautstärke sowie Ein-/Ausschalten von Effekten</caption>

IslandC0der commented on 2021-07-15 22:45 (UTC)

Huh, apparently the project name change was retroactive. Thank you, fixed :)

cucullus commented on 2021-07-14 13:02 (UTC)

Two issues found: 1) wrong checksum of pulseeffects-4.8.5.tar.gz 2) "cp: cannot create regular file 'pulseeffects-4.8.5/data/': No such file or directory" during prepare(). Dirname is actually "easyeffects-..."!

IslandC0der commented on 2021-06-10 22:31 (UTC) (edited on 2021-06-10 22:31 (UTC) by IslandC0der)

If you get a shared lib error after updating boost-libs, simply rebuild this package with the new libraries

IslandC0der commented on 2021-05-18 16:55 (UTC)

Thank you for pointing it out @cubethethird :)

cubethethird commented on 2021-05-18 03:21 (UTC)

As per can the lsp-plugins package be made an optional dependency?

Loader009 commented on 2021-02-05 16:20 (UTC)

You're welcome :) It worked now, no error message, the build succeeded and pacman doesn't say that the package is broken. Everything is fine now I think.

IslandC0der commented on 2021-02-05 16:15 (UTC)

Okay I'll be sure to check my PKGBUILDs, I'm pretty sure I've used this behavior elsewhere.

Thank you for letting me know! :)

Loader009 commented on 2021-02-05 16:13 (UTC)

@IslandC0der: I don't remember any packages with such problems - but earlier I stopped looking into it if the build didn't work.

IslandC0der commented on 2021-02-05 16:09 (UTC)

@Loader009 ahhhh okay, that explains everything. I'm adding your suggestion, let me know if you can install it now

Loader009 commented on 2021-02-05 16:07 (UTC) (edited on 2021-02-05 18:12 (UTC) by Loader009)

@IslandC0der: $srcdir is not essentially in $startdir - I use a BUILDDIR in /etc/makepkg.conf - thus the $srcdir is essentially on a completely different partition. You see this below in the output of your script.

Right now I am running makepkg -s to build the package (I switched to pipewire now - since I've always got the 5.0.0 build with the other aur-package - so I won't install this at the end).

@Loader009 thank you for the cp -L suggestion, did not think of that; it should bypass all of the issues :)

But that discrepancy is pretty weird, has it caused you trouble with other packages (namely those with patches)?

IslandC0der commented on 2021-02-05 15:46 (UTC) (edited on 2021-02-05 15:48 (UTC) by IslandC0der)

@Loader009 The svg in $srcdir will be a symlink ¹, which points to the svg in $startdir (../). The fact that ../ is supposed to be $startdir is actually used with the linux PKGBUILD from the official repos, so it's an expected behavior. ²

It seems like, for some reason, $startdir and ../ aren't the same thing for you (I could explicitly use $startdir, but it's been deprecated). Are you and @ax34 using an aur helper, or just running makepkg?

Please add this command to prepare() and share its output: echo START; ls -l; echo -e "$srcdir\n$PWD\n$startdir"; ls -l ../; echo; ls -l pulseeffects.svg; echo; ls -l $startdir/pulseeffects.svg; echo END

Loader009 commented on 2021-02-05 15:46 (UTC)

@IslandC0der: You might want to use cp -L instead?

Loader009 commented on 2021-02-05 15:34 (UTC)


ls $srcdir: pulseeffects-4.8.4 pulseeffects-4.8.4.tar.gz pulseeffects.svg

echo $PWD: /mnt/STORAGE/@makepkg/pulseeffects-legacy/src

Copying something from ../ is wrong, everything is in $srcdir.

ax34 commented on 2021-02-05 15:21 (UTC)

if you add "cd $srcdir" before the if statement, does it fix the issue?

Still the same error (I'm yet another user experiencing the error)

IslandC0der commented on 2021-02-05 15:14 (UTC) (edited on 2021-02-05 15:16 (UTC) by IslandC0der)

@Loader009 if you add "cd $srcdir" before the if statement, does it fix the issue? If so, does it still not install?

Thank you, will be moving away from librnnoise :)

Loader009 commented on 2021-02-05 14:22 (UTC)

Fyi, you might want to change dependencies (not tested yet though):

yochananmarqos commented on 2021-02-04 22:26
@Loader009: Why? librnnoise is scheduled for deletion.

IslandC0der commented on 2021-02-04 21:04 (UTC)

@Loader009 can't replicate, sadly. For me it compiles and installs normally. What errors do you get? Can you share console output?

PS: I can't remove that dot, otherwise it will copy the symlink instead of the svg itself. What error do you get with the dot?

Loader009 commented on 2021-02-04 20:24 (UTC)

Non-working build? 1. remove one dot on line 28 of PKGBUILD 2. after doing that it builds - but doesn't install because the package seems to be broken.
