java-commons-beanutils does not exist. Please update the PKGBUILD, if possible.

MRWITEK commented on 2014-09-08 17:06

Scilab currently can't build with up to date jogl so you can use the following link to build jogl-2.1.5
http://pkgbuild.com/git/aur-mirror.git/tree/jogl?id=14b88908976a71587de409d427ad6e58055de742
Also there is problem with suitesparse (umfpack) so if you need to you can downgrade that package and remove --without-umfpack line from PKGBUILD.

MRWITEK commented on 2014-09-06 15:27

Thank you, eolianoe! I used your fix for the PKGBUILD. Also I'll report a bug describing this.
In other news, I somehow missed gcc-fortran dependency earlier.

eolianoe commented on 2014-09-03 16:33

With the new version of suitesparse (umfpack) you need to add a prepare function to build:

prepare() {
cd ${srcdir}/scilab/scilab/
# Temporary fix for the new version of suitesparse (4.3.1).
sed -i "s/-lamd/-lamd -lsuitesparseconfig/g" configure
sed -i "s/umf_divcomplex/SuiteSparse_divcomplex/g" configure
}

By default pacman uses extra/beanshell2. The jar shipping with sources by developers is from www.beanshell.org, though. Can't say if it breaks something.

giniu commented on 2014-03-16 21:10

can it depend on beanshell2 from extra instead of bsh, or bsh is needed?

holger commented on 2014-03-04 14:54

Can you add a desktop file?
Just add this to your PKGBUILD
install -Dm644 ${srcdir}/${pkgname}.desktop \
${pkgdir}/usr/share/applications/${pkgname}.desktop

scilab-git.desktop:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Scilab
Comment=A scientific software package for numerical computations

I will be away from today until August 20th, so if anybody has some issues with my packages I'd prefer to discuss it after that point.

No, the same problem:

This is wild guess but you can try to install and configure gtk2 theme, like:
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/clearlooks-phenix-gtk-theme-git/

Thank you a lot for your answer, but this error continues:

MRWITEK commented on 2013-06-02 14:45

And, of course, it works!

MRWITEK commented on 2013-06-02 14:42

Thank you for your feedback.

Yes, all of this dependencies needed at buildtime and/or runtime but currently I have no free time for determining which of these are for buildtime only. Anyway, I used all needed dependencies from build instruction and found out which packages are in prerequirements tarball from the official site. It took quite much time.

Now the package should build for everybody. Finally.

nervencid commented on 2013-06-02 03:29

Thank you for our answer, i apreciate it a lot:

There are a lot of dependences, excuse me for my ignorance on linux but, thats is necessary?

But finally got this message:

Use external version of scirenderer
checking flexdock... /usr/share/java/flexdock/flexdock.jar
checking minimal version (1.2.3) of flexdock... configure: error: Wrong version of flexdock. Expected at least 1.2.3. Found 1.2.0

Thank you for your answer

MRWITEK commented on 2013-05-29 14:18

My apologies for old mistakes about getting sources from SourceForge.net.
Everything is should be fixed.

jgoodies-looks package successfully builds on my side all this time.

nervencid commented on 2013-05-29 04:31

I re downloaded the package but i get this error now:

Failed to connect to 2001:1ab0:7e1f:1:230:48ff:fed1:9c0a: La red es inaccesible

when downloading offo-hyphenation-binary_v2.0.zip...

but i don't know my internet connection is working fine....

MRWITEK commented on 2013-05-28 09:12

Can't reproduce this. Maybe you have corrupted download. Please, check if redownloading works.

nervencid commented on 2013-05-27 22:57

jgoodies-looks-2_5_3.zip failed integrity validation

One o more packages didn't passed integrity verification

MRWITEK commented on 2013-05-25 21:18

Fixed.

nervencid commented on 2013-05-25 20:11

There is a problem with this package:

docbook-xsl-saxon-1.00.tar.bz2

I couldn't download it
