Good to hear that it works @flexmcmurphy

Two tips for the future:

Read: (so no noobs anymore)

Read (to write): for making comments more readable

But all in all, thanks for reaching out.

@ohli Thanks so much for your help. I tried Librepfunc v1.5.0 from the AUR and it does build on my Manjaro 21.3.6 (Ruah) whereas Librepfunc v1.6.0 I downloaded directly from the GitHub does not build. I also ran a w_scan_cpp install script on Raspberry Pi Bullseye and it installed fine along with Librepfunc v1.6.0 so yeah maybe it is a Manjaro thing using different system libraries.

By the way, for other noobs like me, to build Librepfunc I did:

cd ~
git clone
cd librepfunc
makepkg -is

Then to build w_scan_cpp:

cd ~
git clone
cd w_scan_cpp
makepkg -is

Now I can use w_scan_cpp. Cheers! P.S: Apologies but I cannot make sense of how markdown works in this forum.

@flexmcmurphy: strange, I wasn't able to build v 1.6.0 on my system. Could be a manjaro thing, as they use some older system libraries.

Your problem seems to be the dependency resolution, librepfunc is also provided in the AUR:

makepkg checks for packages NOT libraries. So you have two options:

  1. Edit the PKGBUILD and remove librepfunc
  2. Install librepfunc from the AUR

I recommend to use the 2nd option, as this is cleaner and easier to maintain than "some" CPP libraries ;-)

I am trying to bulid w_scan_cpp on Manjaro.

I followed instructions to build librepfunc and it didn't give any errors and I see the files in /usr/lib... [flex@manjaro lib]$ ls -l | grep librepfunc lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 Aug 15 19:51 -> lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 Aug 15 19:51 -> lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 Aug 15 19:51 -> -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2583504 Aug 15 19:51

But when I then go to "makepkg" w_scan_cpp it says: ==> Checking runtime dependencies... ==> Missing dependencies: -> librepfunc ==> Checking buildtime dependencies... ==> ERROR: Could not resolve all dependencies.

I tried rebooting but not sure what else to try or test. Any help much appreciated.

@Mr.Smith1974: libjpeg is referenced by libjpeg-turbo in extra.


Does it work with this?

   ERROR: dependency not found: libjpeg

Thanks to Winfried (the upstream developer) and the PKGBUILD by seahawk1986, I was able to compile the newly introduced dependency of librepfunc which is needed for the compilation of the new version.

Have fun!

FYI: I'm working on a package refactoring on the binary version provided at the upstream page. For the compilation from source you need the librepfunc from [1], which I try to include in the PKGBUILD somehow.

Suggestions welcome.

Hello Mr.Smith1974,

thanks for the information. community/pango was missing as build dependency. Fixed.
