Note that Silicon Labs does not provide a frozen URL to each release, and because of this, the checksum in this package will often be out of date.

To build when this is the case, you can run makepkg with the --skipchecksums flag, or run updpkgsums prior to running makepkg.

@corecode: same here. I suspect webkitgtk2-bin is not built against the version of dependencies currently available in arch - but I don't really know enough about the problem to make sure it's that packet's fault. In the meantime, if you don't want to wait hours to build webkit, here's mine:

I'm getting an error when installing some packages:

Profile change failure. Please run the package manager manually. Failed to execute runnable (org.eclipse.swt.SWTError: No more handles [Unknown Mozilla path (MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME not set)])

This goes away when building webkitgtk2 instead of using webkitgt2-bin.

Hey rp68 - sorry for the confusion. The 6 in "4-6" simply refers to the release of the package script, and is unrelated to the version of the upstream package. As long as you do a clean build, you'll be on the latest version of Simplicity Studio.

Thanks @bbandi. A question : i made this update , to version 4.6 today. but, in the dialog box "about simplicity studio", the version number shown is 4.2.2 : is it a bug ? or, really, the update is not realized ? thanks

I've added the changes listed below - the most important one is switching to the 64 bit dependencies.

I put some work into this pkgbuild, mainly I fixed the outdated dependencies:


-Studio is now built on 64bit, so the lib32- depends were replaced with regular qt4, gtk2, etc.

-lib32-glibc dependency added: it is required for the supplied make and wine (which is used for IAR integration). Alternatively, one could remove /opt/simplicitystudio/support/common/build/make to use the system make command

-lib32-qt4 kept as optdepend, it is required for some old standalone tools

-removed the studio.ini patch, webkitgtk2 is enough to solve the internal installer's problem

-added Development category to the desktop file

-added an install file which removes /opt/simplicitystudio after package removal (to remove stuff installed by studio)

Hey all, thanks for the feedback and for looking into these issues! I've incorporated --launcher.GTK_VERSION 2 to studio.ini from the package side, as well as adding webkitgtk2 as a dependency.

Hi, after spending hours to get the internal browser of eclipse (package manager and license viewer) running by fiddling around with different xulrunner version i also tried webkitgtk2 from AUR last night an it work a treat. Maybe webkitgtk2 should be a dependency of this package otherwise installing packages from within the IDE does only work by offline instal packages.

It seems to work a lot better for me after installing the webkitgtk2 package from AUR.

Hi, thanks for maintaining this package. I'm having trouble installing the 32-bit MCU SDK ( If I use the package manager, go to the SDKs tab and click Install on 32-bit MCU SDK I get "Profile change failure. Please run the package manager manually. Failed to execute runnable (org.eclipse.swt.SWTError: No more handles [Unknown Mozilla path (MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME not set)])"

I tried with --launcher.GTK_version 2 as suggested by medicineman25 with no luck.
