i have made the following adjustments to PKGBUILD:

- bigger application icon (extracted from wink resources)
- if active numlock is detected a warning is displayed using xmessage (with numlock the shortcuts will not work)
- mime types (.wnk files will also get an icon)
- cleaned up PKGBUILD a bit

also it may be useful to know that:
- rightclicking the tray icon while the application window is *not* minimized to tray almost always results in a segmentation fault. if you first minimize to tray and then click it, the context menu is popped up and works fine
- oddly looking dialogs and widgets are caused (at least in my case) by adwaita gtk theme. as a quick fix you can try to rename /usr/share/themes/Adwaita/gtk-2.0 to /usr/share/themes/Adwaita/gtk-2.0_disabled.

@jose1711 could you add integration into 'open with' functionality?

notuxius commented on 2017-01-04 12:57

some icons are missing

alexandre-mbm commented on 2016-01-10 16:11

jose1711, I use to manage issues in my PKGBUILDs.

alexandre-mbm commented on 2016-01-10 16:08

jose1711, I think that we can track the last binaries of linked libraries that were working.

jose1711 commented on 2016-01-10 15:57

alexandre, this is a binary-only package so not sure what can be done here. maybe it broke due to some architectural changes in gtk?

alexandre-mbm commented on 2016-01-10 15:41

jose1711, I also have skills in software development. If you suspicious about what is wrong, share it with me please. Maybe I can help you to investigate the problems.

jose1711 commented on 2016-01-10 08:13

i am sorry, seeing the same but no idea how to fix it

alexandre-mbm commented on 2016-01-05 04:29

The properties fields are disabled. I can not edit the frames.

How to resize the view?

jose1711 commented on 2015-05-07 21:32

sorry, i don't have time to maintain this pkgbuild anymore. disowning

Needs pangox-compat as dependency

./wink: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

cspal commented on 2015-01-10 07:38

When installed in to /usr/share/wink/ directory it can't be used as a regular user because of permissions; one can't changes any property for a frame, because everything is gray in the Properties bar.
I think it should be installed in to $HOME directory.

ant commented on 2014-09-12 14:12

It only built in Arch i686. I can run it, but there is no right pane to change properties for a single frame, only for multiple frames, making the program rather useless. On the terminal I continually get this error:

(wink:539): Gtk-WARNING **: Error loading theme icon 'gtk-cancel' for stock: Fatal error reading PNG image file: bad parameters to zlib

ant commented on 2014-08-24 22:16

Note lib32-pangox-compat did not build because I had libtool installed. I got:

:: gcc-libs-multilib and gcc-libs are in conflict. Remove gcc-libs? [y/N] y
:: gcc-multilib and gcc are in conflict. Remove gcc? [y/N] y
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: libtool: requires gcc=4.9.0

The solution was - of course - to remove libtool and to install wink again. But then, when compiling lib32-pangox-compat, I get:

checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /usr/bin/mkdir -p
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking whether make supports nested variables... yes
checking for gcc... gcc -m32
checking whether the C compiler works... no
configure: error: in `/tmp/yaourt-tmp-ant/aur-lib32-pangox-compat/src/pangox-compat-0.0.2':
configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build lib32-pangox-compat.

So the overall wink building fails. Can someone help on this?

TODO: change wink.png to wink in desktop file

k2s commented on 2013-01-28 12:30

aur/lib32-pangox-compat should be added as dependencie

after I installed it Wink starts on my 64bit arch linux

jose1711 commented on 2012-12-04 18:21

could be that pangox-compat needs to be added to dependencies?

kinu commented on 2012-12-03 09:59

I'm getting: ./wink: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Tried to install pangox-compat, but continues to fail.

:: no results found for lib32-libstdc++5
:: no results found for lib32-gtk2
:: no results found for lib32-expat

Apprently these don't exist anymore.

I've flagged it out-of-date, hoping that the maintainer will be alerted. José, if you do not have time to fix it, please disown it and I will adopt it. Thanks.

ant commented on 2012-05-20 10:37

Please update your PKGBUILD, e.g. adopting Blubaur's version, because it is broken.

mrueegg commented on 2012-04-19 22:25

Thanks, but I used the PKGBUILD provided by Blubaur. How can I install the package after I did a "makepkg -S". Normally, this is done by pacman -S xyz.tar.xz, but both archives yield the shown error.

luuuciano commented on 2012-04-19 20:45

Easy...${pkgname}/${pkgname}${_pkgver}.tar.gz do not have anything...
You will have to find a new source, and change to it
Or try using the PKGBUILD shared by Blubaur

mrueegg commented on 2012-04-19 18:48

Unfortunately, I get for both generated tar.gz files the same error when I use the new PKGBUILD for X86_64:

error: missing package metadata in wink-1.5-3.src.tar.gz
error: 'wink-1.5-3.src.tar.gz': invalid or corrupted package
error: missing package metadata in wink15.tar.gz
error: 'wink15.tar.gz': invalid or corrupted package

What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

Blubaur commented on 2012-04-09 19:17

I updated the PKGBUILD locally to support x86_64, please review and eventually use.

In fact, none of the links on works!

maybe this work

Finally got it worked. thanks for the PKGBUILD. instead of mkdir it is better to use install option.

Anonymous comment on 2010-06-15 06:18

This requires libstdc++5 as dependency and a dirty work to link linked to

Anonymous comment on 2010-06-15 06:11

there is a problem with the check. It will create and install only the gif and .desktop file.
