Before reporting that it doesn't build, can you please try to build it in a clean chroot via

extra-x86_64-build -- -I ../qwt5-qt5/qwt5-qt5-

Otherwise I need an email (in profile) from you with

  • output of pacman -Q
  • the full log of makepkg
  • after you've run pacman -Syu

Because all I can say to the last two commenters: it builds on my machine

I had python-sip4 and sip4 installed. After removing them it builds fine!!! Thanks

hasardeur commented on 2022-05-16 08:02 (UTC)

The updated package builds just fine on two machines. This is much appreciated, thank you!

gerson commented on 2022-01-18 14:39 (UTC)

oops, sorry I didn't notice that you had updated the AUR package as well!

I confirm now that the issue is fixed! I've removed the flatpak and the AUR version is working fine now.


gerson commented on 2022-01-18 13:05 (UTC)

Thanks! But today I've tested the flatpak version and it is working fine. For now I keep it like this.

I'm not a big fan of flatpak/snap/etc, but for these situations they are a great escape.

srtlg commented on 2022-01-18 12:55 (UTC) (edited on 2022-01-18 13:20 (UTC) by srtlg)

You should build it in a clean chroot (from devtools)

extra-x86_64-build -- -I ../qwt5-qt5/qwt5-qt5-

but 2.4.0+r1-2 builds even if qt6-base is installed by ignoring the error in cmake

gerson commented on 2022-01-18 01:26 (UTC)

Same error here. But I'm not sure if is a QT5 vs QT6 issue only. There might be issues with the transition from python 3.9 to 3.10 as well.

Did anyone manage to install it nowadays?

Is this package orphan?

In the meantime, I'm using alphaplot, but I prefer scidavis.

archisman commented on 2020-09-18 14:30 (UTC) (edited on 2020-09-18 14:36 (UTC) by archisman)

The old AUR named "scidavis" has been deleted, and merged with scidavis-qt5. Kindly rename this package to "scidavis", as that is the name of the actual software. Nowadays qt5 is standard, so there is no need to mention it in the package name anymore.

dvk commented on 2020-06-19 04:41 (UTC)

Thank you for the explanation. The package builds successfully with muparser-2.2.6-2. We can keep muparser in the IgnorePkg until the issue is resolved upstream.

srtlg commented on 2020-06-18 17:18 (UTC)

The error is deliberate. With the current muparser, scidavis cannot be build at all [1]. So I don't know really the policy here. It is easy to hold muparser at the required version. The other option would be a separate "muparser-scidavis" static build...


dvk commented on 2020-06-17 16:10 (UTC)

Got this error while building: -> Could not find all required packages: muparser<2.3.1 (Wanted by: scidavis-qt5)

muparser-2.3.2-1 is in extra.

srtlg commented on 2020-01-27 21:24 (UTC) (edited on 2020-01-29 20:05 (UTC) by srtlg)

There was a problem with the PyQt5 sip files.

Fellype commented on 2019-12-23 20:18 (UTC)

SciDAVis 1.26 has been released. This should be the latest version in teh 1.x series.

Fellype commented on 2019-09-06 18:24 (UTC)

Hi srtlg!

Have you tried to add python scripting support to this package, like in the qt4 version?

dacko commented on 2019-09-02 10:31 (UTC) (edited on 2019-09-02 10:33 (UTC) by dacko)

I managed to install the package using two steps:


  • -qmake-qt4 CONFIG+="liborigin python" QMAKE_CXXFLAGS=-fpermissive
  • +qmake-qt4 CONFIG+="liborigin python2" QMAKE_CXXFLAGS=-fpermissive

since otherwise ARCH uses python3 instead of python2, hence cannot find sip, leading ultimately missing files and errors like: 'src/PythonScripting.cpp:65:10: fatal error: sipAPIscidavis.h: No such file or directory'

2) Since /usr/lib*/ was not present, I created a symlink to it:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

arkoprovo1996 commented on 2019-08-08 16:28 (UTC)

This is the latest thing ... Why is it marked out-of-date?!

Fellype commented on 2019-04-12 12:33 (UTC) (edited on 2019-04-12 12:40 (UTC) by Fellype)


The 2.0.1 release doesn't differ significantly from 1.25, being aimed only for build tests on Windows. In the future, the 2.x series will support Qt5 and Python3 only. And yes, it is possible to build SciDAVis 1.25 using Qt5, but do not forget that this requires qwt5 and qwtplot3d built against Qt5 also:

a.kudelin commented on 2019-04-09 13:42 (UTC)

Please, update to 2.0.1 and switch to QT5.

caolite commented on 2019-02-21 00:23 (UTC) (edited on 2019-02-21 00:23 (UTC) by caolite)

it would appear the problem is caused by python-sip-pyqt4 and python2-sip-pyqt4 recently being updated to version 4.19.14. you can get them updated from ; at least python2-sip-pyqt4 needs to be up-to-date, but possibly both

after this, however, you might run into the problem of make failing due to inability of converting nullptr type to int in a handful of .cpp files in the source

i managed to get around this by appending the following code after qmake command in PKGBUILD: find . -type f -name '*.cpp' -exec sed -i 's/{SIP_NULLPTR, SIP_NULLPTR, SIP_NULLPTR, SIP_NULLPTR}/{SIP_NULLPTR, SIP_NULLPTR, SIP_NULLPTR, 0}/g' {} \;

grisu48 commented on 2019-01-11 15:10 (UTC)

Currently the package doesn't build. It exits with

'src/PythonScripting.cpp:65:10: fatal error: sipAPIscidavis.h: No such file or directory'

This is perhaps related to a previous error about not being able to find, which is not provided anymore

ls: cannot access '/usr/lib*/': No such file or directory

Full output is at

Any ideas?

Fellype commented on 2018-12-04 11:22 (UTC)

To fix the build fail due to absence of -fpermissive flag you can apply the patch [1], provided by Miquel Garriga, to PKGBUILD. Basically, add: QMAKE_CXXFLAGS+=-fpermissive to the qmake-qt4 CONFIG+="liborigin python" command.

ktamp commented on 2018-08-11 08:17 (UTC)

Does not build any more unless "-fpermissive" is added to CXXFLAGS in the Makefile for libscidavis.

Fellypao commented on 2018-06-08 01:32 (UTC) (edited on 2018-06-08 01:33 (UTC) by Fellypao)

Python 3 support was added to the latest version (1.23). To build using python 2, add this before the qmake command:

export PYTHON=python2

To build using python 3 add:

export PYTHON=python3

Without any of the options above SciDAVis will be compiled against the default python version of the system.

Fellypao commented on 2018-04-24 16:05 (UTC)

sorry, I pushed it, but didnt notice an error said that I forgot update .srcinfo =| with 1.22 I tried to put translations manually

xxxtonixxx commented on 2017-11-30 15:40 (UTC)

Thank you so much, @Fellypao! That works perfectly! :-D

Fellypao commented on 2017-10-31 13:21 (UTC)

xxxtonixxx, Sometimes (most of the times, probably) the 'make install' step fails to install the SciDAVis translation files. You can add these lines into PKGBUILD after 'make install' command in order to have translations installed: mkdir -p ${pkgdir}/usr/share/scidavis/translations install -m 0644 scidavis/translations/*.qm ${pkgdir}/usr/share/scidavis/translations Alternatively (not recommended) you can copy manually the desired .qm file (generated during the build process and stored at ${pkgname}-${pkgver}/scidavis/translations/) to /usr/share/scidavis/translations. Notice: you may need to review the paths. I'm inferring them by analyzing the PKGBUILD.

xxxtonixxx commented on 2017-10-28 19:55 (UTC)

How can I include spanish into languages? It's built with english language only Thanks :-)

Fellypao commented on 2017-07-24 13:45 (UTC)

The 1.19 release fix missing desktop integration files and icons in Linux packages. Then the "install desktop file and icon" step in the pkgbuild can be removed. Regards.

Fellypao commented on 2017-06-22 17:27 (UTC)

SciDAVis 1.18 has been released (some improvements/bug fixes since 1.17): I believe that you will not need scidavis-qwt5.patch to build this version. Best regards.

Fellypao commented on 2017-06-01 13:02 (UTC)

SciDAVis 1.17 has been released. The patch "fix_wrong_values_on_parameters_errors.patch" is not necessary anymore. By inspecting the PKGBUILD, I noticed that you are not enabling Python scripting and Origin import support. These are features that makes SciDAVis more useful and powerful. If you want to enable them, just add CONFIG+="liborigin python" to qmake: qmake-qt4 CONFIG+="liborigin python" Best regards.

Fellypao commented on 2017-04-26 17:01 (UTC)

@opens Unfortunately there is no new version for SciDAVis. That information about the last update may be due to anything modified in the SciDAVis page on (this is a "problem" in all project pages). In order to check for new SciDAVis versions see:

Fellypao commented on 2016-11-29 15:58 (UTC)

Dear maintainers. There is a bug in SciDAVis which I believe to be important to fix: Wrong (and random) values of errors on fit parameters It was found in SciDAVis, versions 1.D9 to 1.14, that most fit functions return wrong (and random) values of errors on fit parameters. See [1] and [2] for more information. The bug is already fixed in the upstream code [3]. But you can apply a patch [4] to 1.14 code in order to fix it. Regards [1] [2] [3] [4]

rugaliz commented on 2016-01-10 21:34 (UTC)

hi will we be getting scidavis 1d9 anytime soon? cheers

chron commented on 2015-04-21 12:44 (UTC)

You could take a look at saxonbeta's pyqt4.patch from qtiplot-opj, he found a nice way of doing it. from PyQt4 import QtCore import sipconfig sipcfg = sipconfig.Configuration() print " ".join([sipcfg.sip_bin, "-I", sipcfg.default_sip_dir + "/PyQt4", QtCore.PYQT_CONFIGURATION['sip_flags']])

arcanis commented on 2015-04-20 21:51 (UTC)

thanks, seems to be fixed now. The patch is required because for some time pyqtconfig method has been dropped by upstream. I've reported to the upstream about problem - - but there was no changes applied

chron commented on 2015-04-20 19:39 (UTC)

Hehe... The python patch is the reason it won't build ^^, in /scidavis.1.D8/scidavis/ it changed: print " ".join([config.sip_bin, "-I", config.pyqt_sip_dir, config.pyqt_sip_flags] + flags) to: print " ".join(["/usr/bin/sip", "-I", "/usr/share/sip", "-x VendorID -t WS_X11 -t Qt_4_8_6 -x Py_v3"] + flags) which won't work for us because Arch installs the files scidavis wants from pyqt4-common to /usr/share/sip/PyQt4/. Just add 'sed -i "s|/usr/share/sip|/usr/share/sip/PyQt4/|g" ${srcdir}/${pkgname}.${pkgver}/${pkgname}/' to the end of the prepare function and it builds. Working PKGBUILD here:

rami commented on 2015-02-13 13:21 (UTC)

Currently fails. The real reason seems to be: make[1]: Entering directory '/tmp/yaourt-tmp-raphael/aur-scidavis/src/scidavis.1.D8/scidavis' /usr/bin/qmake-qt4 -o Makefile Project MESSAGE: Building with preset linux_package sip: Deprecation warning: ../scidavis/src/scidavis.sip:34: %Module version number should be specified using the 'version' argument sip: Unable to find file "QtCore/QtCoremod.sip" Does anyone know a fix for this?

vit commented on 2014-03-06 03:01 (UTC)

IS there anyone, who is familiar with python and sip? There is a problem with python scripting described here: maybe someone could help to solve this.

arcanis commented on 2014-02-10 17:43 (UTC)

@redshift yep, thank you

redshift commented on 2014-02-10 09:13 (UTC)

Hi, I noticed that glu was needed to build. thanks.

arcanis commented on 2014-02-02 10:58 (UTC)

Oh, sorry, I tried build it with qwt and forgot edit dependencies list. Yep, qwt5 is needed, but not qwt

VDP76 commented on 2014-02-02 10:17 (UTC)

sirocco is right, qwt5 is needed. Please, add it to the depends in the PKGBUILD.

sirocco commented on 2014-02-02 09:58 (UTC)

without qwt5: scidavis: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

arcanis commented on 2014-01-20 18:02 (UTC)

@Nonolapero thanks. I'll upload the new version soon (when I have built it)

Nonolapero commented on 2014-01-20 14:55 (UTC)

A new project leader published a new version 1.D.1

arcanis commented on 2013-09-12 18:59 (UTC)

added patch to fix building of fitting modules

arcanis commented on 2013-09-10 02:02 (UTC)

Dependencies were updated. Patch to fix bugs was added

mmm commented on 2013-04-27 20:41 (UTC)

This is not out-of-date (Apr/2013), but latest stable build is from 2010. Btw, QtiPlot (this forked from it) is in [extra]. Also consider RapidMiner..

vit commented on 2013-04-23 03:29 (UTC)

I'll consult with developers. But I'm not shure if will get the answer.

manouchk commented on 2013-04-22 18:47 (UTC)

If one substitute lupdate, lrelease and qmake in PKGBUILD respectively by lupdate-qt4, lrelease-qt4 and qmake-qt4, things go a bit further but soon fail by a compilation error.

manouchk commented on 2013-04-19 00:01 (UTC)

Scidavis fails to compile now. Missing the command "lupdate" which is not found by runnig pacman -Ss lupdate.

Polly commented on 2013-04-14 14:13 (UTC)

I recommend to check qtiplot, it fulfills many needs scidavis can manage. Unfortunately there's not much (or none at all?) movement in the development of scidavs.

commented on 2012-03-04 01:48 (UTC)

Does anyone know what going on with this project. I really like it, but it seems to not be maintain much by upstream, or am I wrong.

commented on 2012-01-10 15:59 (UTC)

If someone has a solution and wants to fix the package, I'll orphan.

Nonolapero commented on 2012-01-06 16:41 (UTC)

With python-pyqt 4.9 scidavis crashes at startup, it's necessary to downgrade python2-pyqt to 4.8.

commented on 2011-11-05 20:21 (UTC)

Now available in the [archlinuxfr] repo.

commented on 2011-08-06 22:16 (UTC)

Thank you, sidavis semms to need qwt5, wich is is the AUR, I'll upload an updated PKGBUILD soon.

mokasin commented on 2011-08-06 13:06 (UTC)

Doesn't compile on my system In file included from src/scidavis.sip:851:0: ./src/Legend.h:36:23: fatal error: qwt_array.h: No such file or directory compilation terminated. If I install pyqwt and python-numarray I get one step further but then it doesn't find qwt_double_rect.h and so on. Did I miss something?

Nonolapero commented on 2011-06-16 08:12 (UTC)

Scidavis need to be compiled with muparser 1.32 to avoid some bugs when opening file who contains fit functions.

commented on 2011-06-05 13:12 (UTC)

Adopted and updated.

commented on 2011-06-05 13:12 (UTC)


Polly commented on 2011-05-30 15:29 (UTC)

Scidavis depends on module mesa. Please add the dependency.

manouchk commented on 2011-05-26 23:39 (UTC)

I replaced extra/python2-qt by extra/python2-pyqt It looks like there is a problem with a patch: ... patching file python.pri patch unexpectedly ends in middle of line Hunk #1 succeeded at 19 with fuzz 1. ...

commented on 2011-05-08 14:19 (UTC)

scidavis 0.2.4-5 needs python2-qt, but python2-qt was replaced by extra/python2-pyqt

manouchk commented on 2011-03-14 20:33 (UTC)

There is a recent bug, probably linked with the last update(at least it was not present in July of 2010), when loading a project with a fitted function represented in a graph. The functions are lost. It gives an error pop-up window entitled "Input Function error" containing: NonLinearFit1:0 Undefined token ";=978.16764340164;t0=23.022..........;x0+0.5*g*(x-t0)^2" found at position 21. With two functions I got an error for each functions! My guess is that error may correspond to caracter "=" and "*", that wouldn be parsed well

commented on 2011-01-23 10:56 (UTC)

Pleas change depency from "'pyqt>=4.2' 'sip>=4.6'" to "'python2-qt>=4.2' 'python2-sip>=4.6'"

commented on 2010-10-24 22:51 (UTC)

Applied the suggested changes (with minor adjustments). Thanks.

manouchk commented on 2010-10-23 23:36 (UTC)

The pkgbuild proposed by robal works fine here when end-of-line caracters are fixed in order to be compatible with ABS. This package should be updated!

commented on 2010-10-22 13:43 (UTC)

here's a modified PKGBUILD: and here is a link to the patch: PS. sry for my english.

vit commented on 2010-10-19 04:07 (UTC)

Please update dependencies, python 2 now is in python2 package.

commented on 2010-10-06 18:44 (UTC)

Hm, beats me why it worked during my first test run... revision 3 should compile now.

vit commented on 2010-10-06 14:19 (UTC)

The same. Can't compile.

commented on 2010-10-06 14:09 (UTC)

Added missing dependency. Thanks for the hint.
