@rugaliz sorry for the delay I've been some busy, but it usually requires some time to make it working with our libraries

will we be getting scidavis 1d9 anytime soon?

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']])

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

Or ask arcanis to modify his patch.
Just noticed that :)

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)


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:

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?

rami commented on 2015-02-13 10:39

Fails with
../scidavis/src/PythonScripting.cpp:65:28: fatal error: sipAPIscidavis.h: No such file or directory

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.
