Install pkgfile and run pkgfile upgreek.sty

ice9: Thanks for the info about texlive-latexextra and upgreek.sty! I also needed upgreek.sty and this was difficult to find elsewhere.

Does not build without ghostscript, so it should probably be added as a dependency ...

haawda commented on 2012-11-20 18:28

Definitely yes, done. Thanks.

ice9 commented on 2012-11-19 22:01

I found a package with upgreek.sty. Perhaps this should be included in the pyxplot dependency list?


ice9 commented on 2012-11-19 21:53

Just installed and tried a simple plot, but I seem to be missing a LaTeX file. Is pyxplot missing a dependency that supplies what I need?

pyxplot> plot sin(x)
Error: LaTeX error encountered in an unidentifiable canvas item.
Error was: File `upgreek.sty' not found.

Adopted and updated

I would add libxml2 as dependency, keep texlive-core and imagemagick, because anyone will need them for serious use of the program, and not add python, because python2 does the trick.

ertua commented on 2012-05-02 08:54

pyxplot E: Dependency libxml2 detected and not included (libraries ['usr/lib/'] needed in files ['usr/bin/pyxplot'])
pyxplot W: Dependency included and not needed ('texlive-core')
pyxplot W: Dependency included and not needed ('imagemagick')

and makedepends += python

Fixed, thanks

It is broken, it needs a space after ':' in 'gv:for the X11 terminal'

imrehg commented on 2010-11-04 15:56

Finally fixed the package. The problems were (just for the record):
+ depreciated/broken packages in arch that are optionally included in pyxplot
+ python dependence for doc file builds, and does not work with arch's default python 3
+ build error due to "-Wl,--as-needed" in the LDFLAGS that is passed on by makepkg in the linking step
This last one took a long time to hunt down, but should be okay now. If you experience any problem, let me know.

Ok, I didn't understand the "and" in this way. That's weird because I can compile manually pyxplot but if i try to do the same thing via a PKGFILE, it stops with a link error. Here is the patch I used:

imrehg commented on 2010-10-22 00:20

sure, I know it's C but some of the compile scripts still use python but never mind that, that part is fixed. Please note "and some added compilation errors", that's the bugger.

Francois_B commented on 2010-10-21 20:01

Could you update this package now? (I'm a little puzzled when you said it is due to python3 since pyxplot is written in C now.

Francois_B commented on 2010-10-09 10:25

Ok, thank you for your quick answer. Cheers.

Francois_B commented on 2010-10-09 10:17

When I compile the soft, I have this: Does someone have the same issue?

imrehg commented on 2010-10-09 08:35

This package does not work at the moment - the recent Arch jump to python3 and some added compilation errors. Fixing it at the moment.

The fftw and gsl libraries are required by pyxplot, so please include them in the PKGBUILD.

imrehg commented on 2010-08-28 05:34

Dear Stefan, please only post something that you have tested to work... The one you listed is nothing but a version upgrade in the sources list, you have obviously not tried to compile... (e.g. ${srcdir}/${pkgname} is not the unzipped directory anymore, and all those symlinks break the new version of the packagae as it is now rewritten from Python into C.)

The reason for the holdup is that there are a few compilation breakages due to some packages working differently in Arch compared to the author's system. Making a few small changes to the ./configure (disabling kpathsea and libtermcap) it compiles and seems to work. Post any comments if there are any bugs.
