VESTA 3.5.2 has been released. It also fixed previous CHGCAR issue. Please update.

the pkgbuild is still using http while now supports https:

For guys who get blank output when open CHGCAR:

Go to the official website and download and use GTK2 version.

I have reported the bug in the forum. Also, when I have time, I will try to create the package vesta-gtk2 in AUR.

After a bit of googling I found a workaround:


This disables iris and DRI3.

In my previous setup I had DRI set to 2 in Xorg and this lead to the segfault reported below. Now I can use DRI3 systemwide and revert back to i965 driver and DRI2 for VESTA.

After last update VESTA segfaults. Here's my backtrace

Does it work for you?

PKGBUILD (pkgrel=1) does not match AUR database (pkgrel=2)

The website supports https. Here is an updated PKGBUILD:

Apparently libpng12 is no longer a dependency:

Jan. 27 2019 ver. 3.4.6 Removed dependency of the Linux version on

And tested against the last executable:

$ ldd /opt/vesta/VESTA (0x00007ffea73b7000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f19f5aa0000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f19f5910000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f19f58f6000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f19f58d5000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f19f5710000) /lib64/ => /usr/lib64/ (0x00007f19f5c4c000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f19f570b000)

specter119 commented on 2019-02-18 09:22

how about create a symbolic link as /usr/bin/VESTA -> /opt/VESTA/VESTA ? the default VESTA script will cause some warning.

quickwater commented on 2018-05-10 15:43

Running VESTA on i3 I got an error:

The program 'VESTA-gui' received an X Window System error. This probably reflects a bug in the program. The error was 'BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)'. (Details: serial 189 error_code 2 request_code 154 minor_code 24) (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously; that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it. To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

Any idea what could be thereason?
