Please change the pkgver sed command to something like this:

git describe --long | sed -E 's/([^-]*-g)/r\1/;s/-/./g;s/viewnior.//'

That way the version number is a proper one and just contains numerical information

Done , thanks Florian :)

Why the dependency on the following two packages?


Florian commented on 2014-01-26 19:43

Sorry, I forgot about this comment. Updated PKGBUILD:

mrbit commented on 2013-11-20 16:30

Hi, FlorianD ,sorry I do not have much time, you suggest ..

Florian commented on 2013-11-20 15:35

Is it possible to update the PKGBUILD to the modern standards? Thanks.

Fontconfig-ubuntu is not necessary. Namcap includes it because some Viewnior library probably depends on it because you have it installed. Also, please add 'viewnior' as conflicting dependency.

mrbit commented on 2013-05-16 06:29

namcap utility...!!

anonymous_user commented on 2013-05-16 04:13

May I ask why the dependencies were changed to cairo-ubuntu and fontconfig-ubuntu?

mrbit commented on 2013-03-03 08:27

Hi, browntown
with namcap utility no gnome-common dependencies ????

browntown commented on 2013-03-03 05:33

You should add in the dependencies field above that this package requires gnome-common

A solution to the linking error that user umby213 reports is to add -lm to the LDFLAGS flags. One method for doing this is to modify the PKGBUILD to add the following:

./configure LDFLAGS='-lm'

P.S. FYI, official upstream repo sources do not compile without above mentioned fix as well on my system. I am not all that sure as to why this error has suddenly popped up, but in short: changes to the DSO linking process within the GNU linker (ld).

sorry but I don't use this package anymore, if you find the solution please feel free to adopt this package.
in the meantime I can suggest to install non-git version from standard repositories

I receive this error when i run makepkg :( :

/usr/bin/ld: note: 'floor@@GLIBC_2.0' is defined in DSO /lib/ so try adding it to the linker command line

I do not get that error. Maybe a packer problem or something wrong with your connection

Adopted and updated. Enjoy

Anonymous comment on 2010-10-15 12:27

Please add intltool to makedepends and x86_64 to archs.

anonymous_user commented on 2010-08-13 16:00

@Berseker - thanks for the working PKGBUILD. Also I experience this same bug:

anonymous_user commented on 2010-07-16 20:34

Why is gnome-common needed to build Viewnior?

Anonymous comment on 2010-07-02 14:32

working PKGBUILD updated at today
- added x86_64 deps
- modified install prefix (like viewnior in community)

cotton commented on 2010-03-27 10:55

After adding x86_64, it fails to build:
==> Starting make...

/var/abs/local/viewnior-git/PKGBUILD: line 30: ./configure: No such file or directory
