Sorry, my fault: pkgname declared twice...

source="${pkgname}-${pkgver}-src.tar.gz" 'install-dir.patch')

DanielH commented on 2018-04-09 12:21


Download source link must be changed in PKGBUILD to source="${pkgname}-${pkgver}-src.tar.gz" 'install-dir.patch')

/qet/tags/20151127/ qet directory is pointing to old 0.5 stable version downloads...

Best regards, DanielH

Have anyone tried to build the new Qt-5 version (0.5-rc1)? I can successfully build t but it segfaults on startup.

@sekret I know, I tried to fix it (see commit ac681f90ae19a457d6859078491e4ae0717aa951) but some users could use the program anymore and since I am quite busy now I will take a look as soon as possible.

I ran namcap on this one, the output is quite lengthy!

Removing IgnorePkg = qelectrotech in my /etc/pacman.conf...
Updating to 0.4-3 and compiling (+2 hours on my Celeron 1GB RAM)...
It's working now, thanks very much!

@awpe and other QET users
Please, vote for this packaage in AUR!

awpe commented on 2015-08-20 22:48


It's working now, thanks!

@DanielH I reverted the PKGBUILD to the original version.

DanielH commented on 2015-08-20 03:35


At , you will find the initial commit of qelectrotech 0.4-1: PKGBUILD, .SRCINFO and qelectrotech.install files.

I've used them to build and install qelectrotech and... by Neptune's beards! It works!
Qelectrotech has resurrected without issues: QET and user collections are availables in Elements Panel, GUI translations works as expected...

IMHO, reverting AUR's QET to this initial commit will kill all the bugs at once.
Could you take this task on your hands? Will be appreciated.
BTW: I have no knowledge nor time to collaborate now, perhaps I will when next QET version comes... I'm trying to learn...

@DanielH if you had qelectrotech from the AUR3, I do not have the PKGBUILD. I took it over as it seemed unmaintained since the switch to the AUR4. The diff from 0.4-1 to 0.4-2 on the AUR4 can be found here ( If reverting the changes fixes the bug, let me know.

Yesterday, using yaourt I've updated qelectrotech to 0.4-2 in my home machine (Core2 Duo 2GB RAM, Arch + Openbox).

During compilation stage, I've received a lot of warnings about replacements on QET_COMMON_COLLECTION_PATH; I thought that these warnings were due to qmake-qt4 DEFINES+=QET_COMMON_COLLECTION_PATH=/usr/share/qelectrotech/elements line in PKGBUILD.

Now, when Qelectrotech runs the QET collection (official elements) isn't available in Elements Panel, despite those folders, subfolders and .eml elements are normally placed at /usr/share/qelectrotech/elements .
Translations (english, spanish) doesn't works, program language is always french, as awpe commented.

Pityfully, I've not stated EXPORT=2 in /etc/yaourtrc, so my pacman cache doesn't store my previous qelectrotech 0.4-1 package :-(

I freezed Qelectrotech at 0.4-1 at my work machine (Arch + dwm, Celeron 1GB RAM), stating IgnorePkg = qelectrotech in /etc/pacman.conf, until these issues are solved.

By the way: if you have the previous 0.4-1 PKGBUILD, could you publish it to diff against the new 0.4-2?
I think source code has not changes, perhaps these issues are originated in the new PKGBUILD...

@awpe: I have not yet found the fix for the socket error, but the language change should be fixed now.

awpe commented on 2015-08-11 22:49

And sometimes it gives this error:

QETSingleApplication::sendMessage() : QLocalSocket::connectToServer: ÐÑказано в Ñоединении ( qelectrotech-UNKNOWN )

with unprinted chars...

Bad bad bad...

Yes, I've also tried `LC_ALL="en_US" qelectrotech` nothing changed - program language is always french, that is strange I have nothing to do with french in my system.

There are and were only two messages in terminal:
$ qelectrotech or $ LC_ALL=... qel... or LANG=... qel...
transaction began for "custom"
transaction commited for "custom"

$ locale -a

dopsi commented on 2015-08-11 06:57

Have you tried `LC_ALL="en_US" qelectrotech` ?

Do you get any error message if launched from a terminal ?

awpe commented on 2015-08-11 00:09

Cannot change language.

Tried to select from configuration window
Tried to run with export LANG="en_US"; qelectrotech
Tried to run with LANG="en_US" qelectrotech

system locales are configured, kde systemsettings has valid locale values, other programs works well.

Qelectrotech runs in french language only. Nothing changes either if I select another language in config window, or after restart. Selected language is saved in config window but it doesn't affect interface.

Any suggestions?
