I have updated to 1.8.8p5. There still is an error when loading a 24 bit audio wav file (not tested with other formats), but this comes from snack. All of the errors that I have found, are now traced back to snack or present in the binary package, too. So this is for now the best version I can provide.

This version finally works with current tcl infrastructure.

Because of an error in snack that was hidden by an obscure tcl function that has been removed in 8.6 (yes, a very puzzling story) the snack-callbacks.patch is needed.

The error reported by JohnnyDeacon is due to tk having been updated to version 8.6. I have tried to replace the hardcoded "wish8.5" by "wish" (which is a symbolic link to wish8.6), but I get a bunch of errors.

Seems that wavesurfer has not been maintained for more than a year now, there has not been any reaction to bug reports for months, so I have little hope that an upstream bug report would help.

I have uploaded my last version of a PKGBUILD. As I do not use wavesurfer any more, I will disown it.

I'm getting this error today:

./wavesurfer.tcl: line 3: exec: wish8.5: not found

I have installed tcl and tk.

Thanks for your hint, I have updated the md5sums.

md5sum of source tarball seems to have changed again
They are not being a nice upstream...

Updated to version 1.8.8p3.

It's a binary package, right? Since it's Free Software, rename to waversurfer-bin, since someone else (or you) can do a wavesurfer buildscript.

Updated to version 1.8.8p2 - thanks for your hint. They issued a new version (version 1.8.8p2) without changing the download file name. I will try to pay attention to that in the future.

Please fix the md5sum for wavesurfer-1.8.8-src.tgz to 255cb053053ed7e34610da4765fd6862.
