Does no longer build (since ~ one or two weeks):

make[2]: *** Keine Regel vorhanden, um das Ziel „core/CMakeFiles/veyon-core.dir/cmake_pch.hxx.gch“, benötigt von „core/CMakeFiles/veyon-core.dir/Unity/unity_7_cxx.cxx.o“, zu erstellen. Schluss.

There is an issue I opened quite a long time ago. The problem persists.

Version 4.8.2, fresh arch-linux, clean install, same problem. I believe the problem is that veyon looks at both /lib/veyon and /usr/lib/veyon to load its modules. On Arch linux, /lib is a soft link to /usr/lib therefore the modules are loaded twice. Please advice, Veyon is unworkable on Arch Linux.

My assumptions might be wrong. Does anyone have any idea on this?

@sgar: Please build with Qt6, see my updated PKGBUILD.

I am not the maintainer of this package on the AUR, but what I was trying to get across, the script that installs veyon on the AUR installs the version, not the 4.7.5-1 version.

I was trying to show what I saw on my machine while installing.

Please follow VCS and Cmake package guidelines. See my updated and improved PKGBUILD

The script downloads and installs veyon 4.7.3 while the current release is version 4.7.5.

4.7.3 has problems and is unusable.

The right commit is: f24b48f5acea2a5728ba9f45c9d4df382d094b33

It appears that when you install veyon from the aur it installs version 4.7.3-6-g36c58eb98 instead of 4.7.5-1... and this version does not seem to work, it shows grey blank screen of the computers you are trying to view.

Version: 4.7.4-1 Method of installation: Downloaded and built package from AUR successfully.

At first, I installed it over 4.7.1-1. I tried to remove it and install it again, nothing changed. I removed it again and downgraded to 4.7.1-1 which works OK. In veyon master all menu options are shown twice and each time you click on one option it is executed twice. I also submitted an issue #834 but I thought it might be a package issue.

For anyone who wants to deal with 4.7.4, you have to edit the PKGBUILD and change the commit line to:
