I really don't know. I tried to update the package using 'yay' and failed on pkgconf. That's why I reported it.

realh commented on 2021-05-11 14:47 (UTC)

Do all build dependencies have to be listed explicitly? pkgconf should be in the dependency tree implicitly due to vte3 etc.

SoleSoul commented on 2021-05-10 07:58 (UTC)

pkgconf is a build dependency that is not listed.

Sorry, the multiple symbol definition was my fault after all, but I mistook it for some other problems I'd had with CMake/pkg-config/linker interaction. This is fixed in 3.9.4, which can currently be installed via roxterm-git.

realh commented on 2020-05-24 11:55 (UTC)

@saleem I had that problem during development, but I didn't think it had escaped into a release version. I can't reproduce it with the current version of this package or with roxterm-git.

I've been using Arch myself for a while now, and plan to continue using it on at least one PC indefinitely, so I could take over maintaining this if you like.

There's a slight problem with this package: the About dialog doesn't show a version number. This is because the github-generated tarballs don't include the version file I intended to be present in the absence of a .git subdirectory. This can be fixed by adding printf $pkgver > version as the second line of PKGBUILD's build() function (after the cd). Or perhaps it would be more correct to add a prepare() function to do it. PS printf should be used rather than echo here because the version file shouldn't have a trailing newline.

Seems the 3.6.1 version has a bug that has been already fixed in 3.7.2

link to the bug:

I can have a look at this package to upgrade to 3.7.2 if needed, just let me know

@SolarAquarion I hope it stays that way, thank you so much for doing great work.

SolarAquarion commented on 2018-03-02 19:55 (UTC)

@rusty the realh fork is great

rusty commented on 2018-03-02 18:56 (UTC)

yes, man you made it !!! :) Now roxterm window opens in a normal size, Thank You !!!

SolarAquarion commented on 2018-03-02 13:25 (UTC)

I have updated the package to the 3.5 series

hrauch commented on 2018-03-02 10:00 (UTC)

@SolarAquarion No prob. Consider it done :-)

SolarAquarion commented on 2018-03-01 18:31 (UTC)

@hrauch can you add me as a maintainer?

hrauch commented on 2018-02-26 15:47 (UTC)

@SolarAquarion thanks for the hint about the fork. Didn't know about it.

SolarAquarion commented on 2018-02-26 13:42 (UTC)

there has been a fork with lots of improvements

@rusty: sorry, can't reproduce that on my box (I'm running Manjaro (which is based on Arch) with XFCE on a HiDPI screen (resolution: 3840x2160). OK, roxterm does come up kind of small, but not in 20x4 (which would be invisible).

Furthermore, I also tried the --geometry option. It works for me. (I tried 1024x768, 800x600, etc.)

Concerning the key thing:

I found a hint in the makepkg page in the Archlinux Wiki:

and the linked blog post:

=> So, this is documented, but I wasn't aware of it either, at least not initially.

Conclusion: Only keys used for pkg sigs in the core, extra, community repos are automatically managed by pacman. The remaining ones (for AUR pkged stuff) are supposed to be managed by the user, meaning that the user has to fetch the corresponding pubkey(s) by himself, because they go into the user's keyring.

rusty commented on 2018-01-31 01:19 (UTC)

hrauch thank you adding that gpg signature worked. can you check into another issue as well please, every time I open roxterm it pops in a very small size something like 20x4 or less. I've tried changing it in the settings but nothing works.

hrauch commented on 2018-01-31 00:27 (UTC)

@City-busz: I'll take a look into the bug fix, but can't do so right now.

hrauch commented on 2018-01-31 00:25 (UTC) (edited on 2018-01-31 00:28 (UTC) by hrauch)

Yes, I know about that problem. Had the same when I wanted to add mesos from AUR. The only solution I've found so far is to import the key using gpg, but not as root, but as a regular user:

gpg --keyserver --recv-keys BF0EBCD13D97CD09

Once that's done, retry adding roxterm using e.g. yaourt

(I honestly don't know why makepkg can't take care of fetching/adding pubkeys by itself. Might be a bug in makepkg? But that's just a guess).

rusty commented on 2018-01-30 02:54 (UTC)
