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.

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.

$ ls PKGBUILD pulseeffects-4.8.4.tar.gz pulseeffects.svg

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.
