Yes, the problem occurs here too. Looks like there were changes in the used system-code. Looks like just interface change. Looks like it's necessary to patch the code. Maybe some of the bigger Linux-distributions or BSD-people might provide a patch? Or if someone from the users here may want to look at it? Not sure if I have the time - and if I have time, if I can fix it. But if nobody else fixes it during the next four weeks I may give it a try. (or maybe earlier, don't know)

I have tried rxvt-unicode, gnome-terminal, xterm, and even a console, but I see no colorized output. And yet:

Thanks for the new URL. I updated the PKGBUILD.
This software is ages old, and seems not to be further developed?
Some other tools with similar functionality are out there, if you look for newer tools. But trafshow is very convenient in usage, imho.

sjrct commented on 2015-03-23 07:08

It seems the address http://fossies.org/linux/misc/trafshow-5.2.3.tgz no longer points to a tarball, which seems to exist here now: http://fossies.org/linux/misc/old/trafshow-5.2.3.tgz

Seems to be an old version, though I am not familiar with trafshow's development nor do I see a newer version on fossies.org.

oriba commented on 2013-09-05 17:54

Thanks for the hint, zatricky.
I seem to have crapped the PKGBUILD with the last change.
I have corected it now and checked the package-file.
Should work now.

BTW: trafshow is also very old and it seems that develeopment
stalled for longer time too; so I'm not sure if you will be happy with it.

I didn't knew iftop so far and will try it also :-)
So, thanks for your verbose comment :-))

zatricky commented on 2013-09-05 10:23

I came across this while looking for an alternative to iftop (development of iftop appears to have stalled)

During makepkg:
"==> WARNING: Using a PKGBUILD without a package() function is deprecated."
See http://sprunge.us/YYRe for full log

The package file trafshow-5.2.3-3-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz contains only the following:
.MTREE
.PKGINFO

This means that post-installation no files are actually installed into the system. "$ pacman -Ql trafshow" also confirms this by giving no output.
