The comment about the Perl version >= 5.16 contradicts this:

It seems like just 5.16.x is problematic.

@lbeenens, thank you, I have updated it now.

With the new version of perl-moo (2.003000-1), "Sub::Quote and Sub::Defer have been split into a separate dist" (see Therefore, there is an additional dependency to perl-sub-quote.

@nickoe The problem was due to a failing build of perl-wx from AUR.
This made me try to build slic3r from source (
This procedure creates a local directory (perl5) in your HOME directory and stuffs it with prerequisites. As a consequence, slic3r can be started after running the command eval $(perl -Mlocal::lib).

I finally managed to build perl-wx from AUR (see my comment on that package) and install slic3r completely from AUR.

This will not build with devtools/makechrootpkg because of this line:

patch -p1 -i ../../6e5938c8330b5bdb6b85c3ca8dc188605ee56b98.patch

Please include the patch file in the actual sources array so that it gets moved to the chroot before building.

@lbeenens, hmm, looks like the .SRCIFO was not updated last time...

And you may need to investigate why that is needed, I don't have that package installed and the GUI works fine by running slic3r in my terminal. Is this some locale thing?

lbeenens commented on 2016-08-06 16:19

In order to start the GUI, I had to
- install perl-local-lib
- run the command eval $(perl -Mlocal::lib) before starting slic3r

Though the package details mention version 1.2.9-3, in PKGBUILD, pkgrel is defined as 4 (can annoying whilst checking for update).

When I compiled this on an i686 machine and ran it on a x86_64 machine, it gave me errors like "wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32". I fixed it by replacing



arch=('i686' 'x86_64')

If during slic3r build perl-extutils-cppguess fails to build because of a failed test, try building perl-extutils-cppguess before perl-extutils-makemaker-aur.

For yaourt users (assuming perl-extutils-makemaker-aur is not installed):
$ yaourt -S --asdeps perl-extutils-cppguess && yaourt -S slic3r

I needed to install perl-module-build.
