I have further tested Siril-git and seems it's working. Without gvfs it gives

02:32:50: Searching dark in SIMBAD...
02:32:50: No object found

I think it means it did search for it, because the term isn't found in Local. But V1.2 needs gvfs.

Unfortunately, it's the same. Without gvfs I get as before

02:26:24: Searching Orion nebula in SIMBAD...
02:26:24: Server unreachable or unresponsive. (Operation not supported)

Also, not able to update with "Cannot fetch version file".

Would you mind testing whether the gvfs issue affects siril-1.2.0-1.1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst [link no longer available]. It was built in a clean chroot with most of the optdeps moved into depends.

Note: The current PKGBUILD for this package does not build in a clean chroot without modification.

Without gvfs

siril_check_updates_callback: loading of failed: Operation not supported

With gvfs:

Using siril without gvfs, when you check for updates, do you see messages like:

initializing CURL
Fetch succeeded with code 200 for URL
Last available version: 1.2.0

That explains it then, why I had 'Local' Resolver for common names like Triangulum galaxy, Andromeda, Orion. I'm not sure if this can be changed though (if it's always local or can be configured to be downloaded)? But then it means Siril-git didn't download anything over the net, so that could explain why it worked without gvfs for me. Still, for Siril v1.2 gvfs is mandatory for my install (arch kde). I tried uninstalling it with libcurl available and PCC didn't work.

in newer versions, targets names are resolved locally if they are common names. The star catalogues are still downloaded if the user has not installed them explicitly.

I have no idea. Did it produce correct results? Is it something that is configurable?

maboleth commented on 2024-01-04 14:56 (UTC)

@xiota I can confirm that PCC in Siril-git you provided works without gvfs. In fact, the search is very fast, but it said "Local" in Resolver, so that is kind of suspicious - was it all localized, meaning it didn't download anything?

Siril v1.2 PCC does not work without gvfs. There PCC displays "Simbad" for Resolver when it finds the name (when gvfs is installed).

On 1.2 the detection is not perfect. The two libraries can be detected, but at build-time we can't know if glib-networking is working, and having a part of it disables libcurl when it's found. In that case libcurl or other curl libraries are not used apparently. PKGBUILD could be updated to remove the gnutls line, and if needed, -Denable-libcurl=true can be passed to meson to force using curl over glib-networking.
