Would be nice to add qt5-graphicaleffects at least as optional dependency, since it is needed to display the conversation history at startup (it is an optional dependency of qt5-quickcontrols2 which is a dependency of quaternion, but it's not obvious…).

EDIT: I had libquotient installed, after removal and rebuild it worked.

Hi there, I tried to install the latest version but I get:

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:90 (find_package):
  By not providing "FindQuotient.cmake" in CMAKE_MODULE_PATH this project has
  asked CMake to find a package configuration file provided by "Quotient",
  but CMake did not find one.

  Could not find a package configuration file provided by "Quotient"
  (requested version 0.6) with any of the following names:


  Add the installation prefix of "Quotient" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set
  "Quotient_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above files.  If
  "Quotient" provides a separate development package or SDK, be sure it has
  been installed.

I see quotient is a dependency, do I need to install anything else?

quaternion: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Please add qt-keychain to the deps.

Please add aarch64, it is compatible.

L0ric0, you're right, I've also noticed that, but didn't managed it at the first time. The error appeared due to my quotient package was marked as outdated (0.5.3-2) by spectral maintainer. I've updated quotient to beta (0.6-beta1), but it's not supported by quaternion yet.

So I'm reverting update to 0.6-beta1 for quotient for now to support quaternion. And going to think about new release of the quaternion.

with the current libquotient package i am unable to build quaternion with the following error:

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:82 (find_package):
  Could not find a configuration file for package "QMatrixClient" that is
  compatible with requested version "0.5.1".

  The following configuration files were considered but not accepted:

    /var/abs/local/builds/quaternion/src/Quaternion-, version: 0.4

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

I packaged up libQuotient today. I guess this project can now use it as a dependency instead of building it.

As of 2019-05-26 This package fails to build in a clean chroot unless "qt5-multimedia" is added to the dependency list.

hcra commented on 2019-01-28 10:48 (UTC)

AUR cache is here $HOME/.cache/yay. Depends on the Toolkit.

akstrfn commented on 2019-01-27 21:50 (UTC)

As it reads in "No messages in the timeline" if this happens it is a Quanterion bug, the reason is that now this package builds in clean chroot.

Btw, what is aur cache?

hcra commented on 2019-01-27 18:21 (UTC)

I removed qt5-quickcontrols and qt5-quickcontrols2 packages. Cleaned the aur cache and rebuilt quaternion. Then I got no messages. I installed qt5-quickcontrols and qt5-quickcontrols2 again. After this I got messages. This is also mentioned on search for "No messages in the timeline".


akstrfn commented on 2019-01-27 14:48 (UTC)

Does not look like those are required by upstream. Can you try updated package?

hcra commented on 2019-01-26 21:52 (UTC)

Please add qt5-quickcontrols and qt5-quickcontrols2 to dependencies. Without these packages quaternion don't display any messages.

Seems to be missing qt5-quickcontrols as a runtime dependency. I got log output like:

Rendering QML with QQuickView
qrc:/qml/Timeline.qml:2:1: module "QtQuick.Controls" is not installed
qrc:/qml/Timeline.qml:3:1: module "QtQuick.Controls.Styles" is not installed

Missing the qt5-tools qt5ct as depends?

vanyasem commented on 2018-05-06 12:28 (UTC)

If possible, please, post patches to the current PKGBUILD instead of reimplementing everything from scratch in the future. Thank you for your suggestions

E5ten commented on 2018-05-05 10:49 (UTC)

Oh sorry now I realize the person who made the new PKGBUILD is not the maintainer so the .SRCINFO is still correct.

E5ten commented on 2018-05-05 10:46 (UTC) (edited on 2018-05-05 10:50 (UTC) by E5ten)

I made an alternate PKGBUILD I hope you'll consider, I modified it to use a little less hardcoding, and also changed it so that it compiles quaternion using a shared lib that goes in /usr/lib instead of statically linking, I tested and this functions just as well. also, I think you need to regenerate your .SRCINFO because the AUR page says the package version is still 0.0.5-3.

0x47 commented on 2018-05-04 23:28 (UTC) (edited on 2018-05-04 23:30 (UTC) by 0x47)

I updated and cleaned up this PKGBUILD (and removed typo 128x1128). In case anyone is interested:

EDIT: Sorry, the formatting is all messed up in the comment, so I created this:

MazeChaZer commented on 2017-10-12 09:28 (UTC)

I can't directly install this package because the .SRCINFO is out of date. pkgrel should be 2, not 1. You can update the .SRCINFO with $ makepkg --printsrcinfo > .SRCINFO

crisbal commented on 2017-08-08 18:38 (UTC)

Add `cmake` as a build dependency. I was trying to install this package without having `cmake` installed and the build was failing. Please add `cmake` as a dependency.
