"Could not enumarted device count!" [sic]

It's a typo, bad grammar _and_ unexpected behavior all in one.

lspci says

02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Pitcairn PRO [Radeon HD 7850 / R7 265 / R9 270 1024SP]

It works fine for X11, wayland and OpenGL.

OpenGL core profile version string: 4.5 (Core Profile) Mesa 17.2.2

But other Vulkan programs give VK_ERROR_INITIALIZATION_FAILED.

Just realized I forgot to reply to everyone lately:

krant: added (6 months ago ^^), thanks!

pums974: this error came from the server, not the client. I expect it's been solved a long time ago though.

hcorion: renaming packages is a pain (getting users to move to the new package), so I won't be doing this, but I'll try and think about it next time :)
lubosz has made a -git version of this package that compiles from source (with a couple needed changes to the sources to make it compile), which I was planing on doing at some point but didn't have the time (and kinda forgot). Thanks lubosz!

dkadioglu: just pushed your change, and I should've known it was needed. Like I said though, I don't use anything that shows these icons, so I couldn't see for myself it was broken.

The icon is not shown in the menu in KDE. If I change the icon name in the PKGBUILD to vulkanCapsViewer, the same as it is named in the desktop file, and change the path where to copy it to /usr/share/icons/hicolor/256x256/apps then it works. Maybe you can check that and change it in the PKGBUILD. Thanks.

This package should be renamed to vulkan-caps-viewer-bin and a seperate package should be created with the same name that builds it from source, here: https://github.com/SaschaWillems/VulkanCapsViewer
According the the Arch User Repository rules: "Submitting binaries should be avoided if the sources are available. The AUR should not contain the binary tarball created by makepkg, nor should it contain the filelist."

Please add also qt5-x11extras to dependencies. Thanks for package!

Thanks, it works. I also don't use desktop environment, I use i3 + dmenu.

@lfairy: Thanks. I knew it was built on Qt and somehow still forgot to add it to the deps. Fixed!

@mmozeiko: I had somehow missed your comment. Added :)
Let me know if it doesn't work, as I can't test it myself (I don't run any desktop)

lfairy commented on 2016-06-11 06:18

First time I ran the tool, I got this error:

vulkanCapsViewer: error while loading shared libraries: libQt5Widgets.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I fixed it by installing qt5-base.

mmozeiko commented on 2016-03-13 07:01

How about adding .desktop entry in /usr/share/applications ?
