This package provides the cli version of waifu2x-caffe. A readme for all of the flags is located in /usr/share/docs/waifu2x-caffe/README. The models are located at /usr/share/waifu2x-caffe/models.

@lurkingaround This happens because that library (which is linked against when compiling waifu2x) got updated. When this happens you will need to rebuild waifu2x. I will try to update the package rel when I notice it happening, but if you notice before I do just make a comment like you did and just rebuild for the meantime.

Getting this error.

waifu2x-caffe: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

@lurkingaround I am able to build this in a chroot. So I believe you have somehow configured your path so that CMake can't find CUDA.

pkgrel-4 has changes only to the PKGBUILD: @Berunkeo - Git statements now use https. If you use paru you may need to blow away your cache, when I was building during testing I was getting a "not a git clone of" until I did this.

Also updated the make statements to use the user specified MAKEFLAGS instead of nprocs.

Getting this error when I try to install it.

Because of Safety measures by Github, please set git to use https protocol and overwrite the insecure git:// protocol in the PKGBUILD by running git config --global url."https://".insteadOf git:// or change the PKGBUILD directly.

Waiting for a fix by the maintainer~ ouo

@sommio Feel free to alter the PKGBUILD to have the older versions of cuda and cudnn on your local system. Once you have cloned this repository, make the necessary changes by updating the fields in the depends section to the older versions. Then you can commit that change to your local git repo. What this will do is allow for any changes in the future to be merged with the changes you added and you may not need to make them every time I release an update.

If the older versions work let me know.

Not only is this compatible with older nvidia gpu's, but caffe has higher performance in cudnn7 than cudnn8!
