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.

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

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...

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
