I've adopted this package and repurposed it. It now installs the original Lua/Torch7-based waifu2x. The C++ rewrite seems to have been discontinued, and the original is still being maintained. If you want to use the C++ version, install waifu2x-converter-cpp-git instead.

You are right, it is only a library now. To use waifu2x directly we may use `waifu2x-converter-cpp`.

I will remove `provide: waifu2x-converter-cpp` in the future.

That's incorrect, `make install` works fine on both my systems. See this directory listing of the built package:

Your PKGBUILD is a step backwards, not forwards. Sorry I must decline.

@fbrennan Heres a very hacky pkgbuild, currently since the make install doesn't install anything we can just copy the binary made.

It's also worth mentioning empty fields are generally best removed.

Hello,

Thanks for your report - it's because upstream finally added `make install` and `make test`, but by adding them they broke the hack that I was using previously to install. Now my PKGBUILD uses them.

See https://github.com/tanakamura/waifu2x-converter-cpp/pull/9 for infos. It should all work now, I had to change his PKGBUILD patch a bit though

An upstream update broke the patch for src/main.cpp by moving a hard-coded path into a #define directive. It should be a quick fix; can you update the package?

Here's the CUDA PKGBUILD : https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/waifu2x-converter-cpp-cuda-git/

YamashitaRen commented on 2015-09-23 16:07

Yes, it might be a good idea.
I think I'll do a clean PKGBUILD when I'll have time but don't count on me to maintain it :D

(Your current PKGBUILD works with nvidia but it will not use cuda, which make it 2x slower on my computer)

ps : I think that when sl1pkn07 asked you to replace opencl-mesa by libcl, he really meant "libcl"

fbrennan commented on 2015-09-23 14:44

I think it may be better, for the nvidia users, to create a waifu2x-nvidia-git package, and put CUDA as a hard dependency. What do you think?
