I had to install the package gtk2 to get the gui to work

Thanks GrafVonKrolock, fixed.

Fixed. Thanks for the heads-up. The URL has not changed, but the official download location is inaccessible. I have reverted the source path back to the GitHub mirror.

Download URL has changed to:

Same checksum, only different location.

Are you sure you are referring to the correct package and/or the current PKGBUILD version? As of now the PKGBUILD only has two sha256 sums specified, one per source. It is working without issues.

yar commented on 2018-11-04 18:16 (UTC)

Hashes are all messed up. It says md5sums where it should say sha256sums, and even then the third entry is still wrong. Please replace with:

sha256sums=('23761e32aca057de12e940fca097bcfef5a1efea9ff4998f8aa9fd58241db6dd' '332ef39aab3893622df7027b98d7deef424cb9563b458e13a129ef687a899cdd' '0286d609206aa929bcad30542a22dae17edb5286120f841770517170ee8b045a')

Maybe I was missing a dependency. Tried reinstalling drivers without success. Then I built the non-binary package (slic3r), and it's working.

EDIT: OK, it was not really fixed, slic3r was starting this time, but I did not get the 3D views, and the problem was still there (I only got the 2D view working). But finally I found a fix for my setup, I have to launch slic3r preloading the nvidia GL library:

$ LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/nvidia/ slic3r

I do not know why with slic3r I have to do this. By default slic3r loads /usr/lib/ from libglvnd package, that is supposed to redirect calls to the nvidia library, but it looks like for slic3r libglvnd is not working properly.

doragasu commented on 2018-01-25 12:49 (UTC)

I will give it another try. Thanks for testing and for the feedback!

nixi commented on 2018-01-25 11:19 (UTC)

I have tested this on two fresh installations and it works fine, albeit it was on intel and amd gpus. I have no intel machine to test this with at the moment. Considering that neither the source nor the pkgbuild changed recently, this probably is not a pkgbuild issue.

Make sure your drivers are correctly installed. For instance, nvidia drivers on one machine refused to work with vr applications even though they worked with other programs. When I reinstalled them, it worked...

doragasu commented on 2018-01-21 20:48 (UTC) (edited on 2018-01-21 20:49 (UTC) by doragasu)

I cannot get it to run:

slic3r libGL error: No matching fbConfigs or visuals found libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast Segmentation fault (core dumped)

I am using nVidia privative drivers (340 legacy branch). OpenGL drivers work perfect for other OpenGL applications like glxgears, KiCad, FreeCAD, etc.

Salamandar commented on 2016-10-03 23:47 (UTC)

Yeah, because you (very, very, very often) need the GUI to configure Slic3r. An advanced user will be very annoyed by the non-dependency, a basic user will be completely lost.

nixi commented on 2016-07-17 16:52 (UTC)

Are those essential? The program should work in CLI without them. Should I list them as optional dependencies?

tim.hellhake commented on 2016-07-17 13:57 (UTC)

Two dependencies are missing: freeglut and glu

I also get the ERROR: url should not be an array... Here is the fixed PKGBUILD: basil: slic3r-bin uses the precompiled binaries provided by the slic3r project rather than compiling from source. The end result should be the same, but slic3r-bin should install/update much faster due to not needing compilation.

pyropeter commented on 2016-03-11 21:16 (UTC)

==> ERROR: url should not be an array

basil commented on 2015-10-30 14:57 (UTC)

What's the difference of this package to slic3r? I tried slic3r, slic3r-git and now slic3r-bin. slic3r-bin is the only one in which I can start the GUI.

xuv commented on 2015-07-31 02:57 (UTC)

Maybe it's worth mentioning that the package freeglut is optional but necessary if you want to use the GUI. If not, slic3r --gui will return an error.

ivanovp commented on 2014-08-22 07:02 (UTC)

i686 is missing from arch. Correct line: arch=('i686' 'x86_64')

thiagoalmeidasa commented on 2014-04-27 13:06 (UTC) PKGBUILD updated, plz consider update the oficial package

ejona86 commented on 2014-02-18 06:25 (UTC)

Could you include a .desktop file? For reference, see slic3r's .desktop; it looks like you would just mainly need to change Icon to /opt/slic3r/res/Slic3r_128px.png.

Please update to RC3, the RC2 download is gone.

bradpitcher commented on 2014-01-30 23:13 (UTC)

I needed to add the provides line in order to install repetier-host

bradpitcher commented on 2014-01-30 23:12 (UTC)

I'm grateful for this package because of Arch's Perl handling (at this writing, AUR slic3r can't install because of it). Can you please add: provides=('slic3r') to the PKGBUILD?

swiftgeek commented on 2013-06-10 15:22 (UTC)

Nope, it's because of perl itself :< And arch's handling can't be any better — I actually have to disable whole CPAN's world destroyer via shitstorm of quirks :< And this (perl-518) was first real slic3r-git break (the previous ones were just missing tests - which is now easy to disable in PKGBUILD)

commented on 2013-06-10 06:56 (UTC)

Except that slic3r-git breaks every other day because of how shitty Arch's handling of Perl packages is.

swiftgeek commented on 2013-06-09 18:59 (UTC)

Just use slic3r-git and fill bug request regularly, otherwise don't expect any software to work. Or use this on safe-to-delete $HOME

DaZ commented on 2013-06-09 00:35 (UTC)

Welp, I agree. Any protips?

swiftgeek commented on 2013-06-08 15:39 (UTC)

This is wrong on so many levels…
