The upstream URL seems down ( Cannot install.

Thank you for the report, fixed.

In both this PKGBUILD and fork from Alister.Hood, there is a bug that prevents source code patching, because subsequent builds with makepkg -e would fail:

sed -i "s/lrelease/lrelease-qt4/" qtoctave/src/CMakeLists.txt

must be changed to

sed -i "s/\"lrelease\"/\"lrelease-qt4\"/" qtoctave/src/CMakeLists.txt

launching some times in sequence makepkg -e, lrelease-qt4 will become something like lrelease-qt4-qt4-qt4-qt4-qt4-qt4 :)

Ah, there is a fork, updated to work with recent octave. This PKGBUILD works, although I'm not sure if it should be posted as qtoctaveng-git or qtoctave-ng-git, or just qtoctave-git :)

arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
pkgdesc="Qt4 frontend for octave"
depends=('qt4' 'octave' 'hicolor-icon-theme')
options=('!libtool' '!emptydirs')

build() {
cd "$srcdir/$_pkgname"
sed -i "s/lrelease/lrelease-qt4/" qtoctave/src/CMakeLists.txt


package() {
cd "$srcdir/$_pkgname"
make DESTDIR="$pkgdir" install

But it currently segfaults at startup for me :(
With many thousands of lines in the backtrace...

The "out-of-date" flag on this is erroneous.

Checksum will have a tendency to fail due to network issues, especially at the remote server. Try a second time and it should work. Delete your cached source if any.

The checksum is correct here as well.

Alister.Hood commented on 2013-06-30 10:27

It built OK for me, so I guess Checksum is OK.

Checksum verification fails.
