I get: Error in file "/usr/share/applications/qsstv.desktop": "text" is an invalid MIME type ("text" does not contain a subtype) when updating the desktop database.

Please wrap variables in quotes (srcdir, for example), otherwise they will cause issues/errors when expanded, if the paths etc contain spaces.

AxPU commented on 2017-10-22 08:58

Great, it seems to work fine here as well. Thank you very much for digging that options out.

It looks like one can add the below to the pro file and it will also find the correct include path.
CONFIG += link_pkgconfig
PKGCONFIG += libopenjp2

nickoe commented on 2017-10-21 03:56

pkg-config libopenjp2 --variable=includedir

Will return the correct include path, maybe we can use that?

nickoe commented on 2017-10-21 03:45

And now it seems to be openjpeg-2.3 from the openjpeg2 package... :/ There must be a better way that specifying it directly.

AxPU commented on 2017-09-05 22:04

Patched build to use openjpeg-2.2

Does it still crash after receiving an Image? I am currently unable to test that..

georgieff commented on 2017-08-31 14:05

It looks like the packages is meant to be compiled with openjpeg-2.1 while the current version is openjpeg-2.2

The compilation crashes here:

In file included from widgets/imageviewer.cpp:28:0:
utils/jp2io.h:3:10: fatal error: openjpeg.h: No such file or directory
#include "openjpeg.h"
compilation terminated.

By putting

Also needed to do this
cd /usr/include/;ln -s openjpeg-2.2 openjpeg-2.1
because of this

utils/color.cpp:45:10: fatal error: openjpeg-2.1/openjpeg.h: No such file or directory
#include "openjpeg-2.1/openjpeg.h"
compilation terminated.

I will look into it as far as I'm able to. And contact upstream to see if it is a bug there.

9.2.4 core dumps after receiving an SSTV image due to "The futex facility returned an unexpected error code." Also had a "double free or corruption (fasttop)" error.

hri commented on 2016-04-17 07:56

9.1.5 is the latest and greatest.

toddejohnson commented on 2016-04-16 00:33

There is an update to 9.1.4 and it does need openjpeg2. Patch at:

Pankrip commented on 2016-04-15 22:06

you need to add openjpeg2 as a dependancy in the PKGBUILD file, or it will fail to build

maze commented on 2016-02-14 08:29

Hamlib has been upgraded to 3.x, please test.

AxPU commented on 2015-03-23 22:39

Thanks, updated

tcs commented on 2015-03-23 14:47

New Version 8.2.11

AxPU commented on 2014-03-01 20:08


Such update, very version :)

AxPU commented on 2014-02-13 23:16

New Version 8.1.17

AxPU commented on 2014-01-30 21:50

New version 8.1.14

AxPU commented on 2014-01-04 08:18

Update, new version

AxPU commented on 2013-12-27 22:59

Upstream icon fix due to an incompatibility that is probably connected to lippng16 and/or its use in Arch Linux.

Thanks to the author for a really quick response!

AxPU commented on 2013-12-25 16:48

Updated to new qsstv version 8.1.7

AxPU commented on 2013-12-25 16:48

Upgraded to qsstv version 8.1

AxPU commented on 2013-07-02 22:40

Thank you for the hint.

Added "fftw" but not "patch" since this belongs to the "base-devel" group and must therefore be installed before using AUR.

The AUR documentation is very specific in saying that packages of "base-devel" should not be explicitely required by PKGBUILDs

IwfY commented on 2013-07-01 10:40

There are more missing dependencies:
* patch
* fftw

AxPU commented on 2013-03-02 00:02

Updated to use qt4 instead of qt following the Arch switchover

AxPU commented on 2012-11-14 22:11

Thanks for the hint! Dependency added.

I always had hamlib installed anyway and thus never run into problems compiling qsstv. Anything else missing?

oneeyed commented on 2012-11-14 15:12

It seems to be lacking the "hamlib" dependency.

kiiruchu commented on 2012-07-09 13:44

nice job!

AxPU commented on 2012-05-29 16:26

And mni tnx for all that helped!

AxPU commented on 2012-05-27 22:48

Finally! Patched and working.

Enjoy the new version.

kiiruchu commented on 2012-05-10 17:19

I don't know if the community fix from debian was sent upstream, but i found the fix myself.
The problem lies within the update to gcc 4.7 from March 14, 2012.

The solution can be found on this page:
By adding '#include <unistd.h>' to wavio.ccp it compiles just fine over here.

I hope this works for you as well.

Best regards

kiiruchu commented on 2012-05-09 16:51

The bug seems to be fixed with version 7.1.7-2
This dates to yesterday:

The source is not updated yet though.

AxPU commented on 2012-05-08 20:20

Yes the package currently does not build. My best guess for the reason is some QT update shortly after asdil12 providet the package on pastebin. It did work briefly but before I even came to package it up correctly it stopped working.

I have not yet figured out why unfortunately. Help is definitely welcome!


kiiruchu commented on 2012-05-08 16:49

The legacy version works just fine, thanks for that, but I would love to see the 7.1 working.
I tried building from source but make eventually stops with an error:

wavio.cpp:285:33: error: ‘lseek’ was not declared in this scope.
make[1]: *** [../tmp/wavio.o] Error 1

And that's that.


AxPU commented on 2012-03-31 21:20

Oh Tnx! I can see you were a bit agitated when you finally got it to work :)

Will check it out and upload asap.

asdil12 commented on 2012-03-31 21:07

finally managed to hack a working package:

AxPU commented on 2012-03-16 22:08

Am already working on the v7.1 upgrade. I'm not a sowftware developer tough and have not yet figured out the new building process of qsstv. It will come, be patient.

If someone more skilled wants to take over the package, I'd be happy with that too, just write a comment here.

AxPU commented on 2010-05-17 22:37

Update to qsstv 5.3c-2 !

Updated QT dependency to 'qt3' since 'qt' defaults to 'qt4' nowadays. Fixed the menu icon tough it's currently only one of the applications internal GUI icons. Better one might follow, let's see!

AxPU commented on 2010-05-17 19:28

Package needs a bit of a facelift - Adopted it and will revamp it so that it functions out of the box again.
