patch added

Fellypao commented on 2016-11-29 15:58

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

sure

Alad commented on 2016-11-11 11:25

@opens: Have you filed a bug upstream?

@arcanis: Would you mind adding a desktop file for this? (gendesk springs to mind)

opens commented on 2016-10-24 19:41

hi,
if I want to plot some data, the program shuts down and I get the error "Unaligned memory access" :(
The installation was succesfull.

pkgbuild forces qt4: https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/tree/PKGBUILD?h=scidavis#n30

JohnRobson commented on 2016-08-22 19:16

@arcanis, I'm using QT5 by default, but maybe this builder should select QT4 automatically.

arcanis commented on 2016-08-12 15:10

didnt run it yet, just updated and compiled. Will check later

sirocco commented on 2016-08-12 14:16

Can anyone plot anything with last version (1.14 or 1D13) of scidavis?

I have a segmentation fault with

scidavis[8815]: segfault at 79 ip 00007f4e4d8aa915 sp 00007ffe6afef8e0 error 4 in libQtGui.so.4.8.7[7f4e4d522000+ae5000]

in dmesg log.

arcanis commented on 2016-07-19 13:31

/usr/lib/qt/mkspecs/features/qt_config.prf belongs to qt5 package. This package should build with qt4 (i.e. using qmake-qt4). Which qt4 version are you using?

The Scidavis sources are unreachable for me... Is anyone else having problems?

manouchk commented on 2016-07-10 02:26

Scidavis crashes on plotting.
Reproducing the bug: fill first and second column with row numbers and make a plot (scatter or line plot).

arcanis commented on 2016-05-31 15:03

fixed, sorry for delay

kmiernik commented on 2016-05-22 09:27

I've got compilation error:

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

rugaliz commented on 2016-01-10 21:34

hi
will we be getting scidavis 1d9 anytime soon?

cheers

chron commented on 2015-04-21 12:44

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

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 - https://sourceforge.net/p/scidavis/scidavis-bugs/243/ - but there was no changes applied

chron commented on 2015-04-20 19:59

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

chron commented on 2015-04-20 19:39

Hehe... The python patch is the reason it won't build ^^, in /scidavis.1.D8/scidavis/python-sipcmd.py 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}/python-sipcmd.py' to the end of the prepare function and it builds.

Working PKGBUILD here: https://paste.xinu.at/bAK0S/

rami commented on 2015-02-13 13:21

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 scidavis.pro

Does anyone know a fix for this?

IS there anyone, who is familiar with python and sip? There is a problem with python scripting described here: https://sourceforge.net/p/scidavis/scidavis-bugs/234/ maybe someone could help to solve this.

arcanis commented on 2014-02-10 17:43

@redshift
yep, thank you

redshift commented on 2014-02-10 09:13

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

arcanis commented on 2014-02-02 10:58

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

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

sirocco commented on 2014-02-02 09:58

without qwt5:
scidavis: error while loading shared libraries: libqwt5.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

arcanis commented on 2014-01-20 18:02

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

Nonolapero commented on 2014-01-20 14:55

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

added patch to fix building of fitting modules

arcanis commented on 2013-09-10 02:02

Dependencies were updated. Patch to fix bugs was added

mmm commented on 2013-04-27 20:41

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

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

manouchk commented on 2013-04-22 18:47

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 05:11

On the forum, it was suggested that qt4 package contain lupdate-qt4 instead of lupdate. That maybe an idea in order to solve the problem.

manouchk commented on 2013-04-19 00:01

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

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.

Anonymous comment on 2012-03-04 01:48

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.

Anonymous comment on 2012-01-10 15:59

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

Nonolapero commented on 2012-01-06 16:41

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

Anonymous comment on 2011-11-05 20:21

Now available in the [archlinuxfr] repo.

Anonymous comment on 2011-08-06 22:16

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

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

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

Anonymous comment on 2011-06-05 13:12

Adopted and updated.

Anonymous comment on 2011-06-05 13:12

Updated

Polly commented on 2011-05-30 15:29

Scidavis depends on module mesa. Please add the dependency.

manouchk commented on 2011-05-26 23:39

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.
...

Anonymous comment on 2011-05-08 14:19

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

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

Anonymous comment on 2011-01-23 10:56

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

Anonymous comment on 2010-10-24 22:51

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

manouchk commented on 2010-10-23 23:36

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!
