GiRa, thanks for the patch, worked perfect for me! I appreciate all the effort that has gone into packaging x3270!

Sorry for not replying, I didn't get a notification for some reason.

I can start look into it :)

Yes, that would be great if you could help with version 4. I haven't actively used x3270 for some time, but it has been a low maintenance package to keep updated thus far

GiRa commented on 2020-06-27 08:51

I just wanted to thank you for maintaining this package. Let me know if you need some help with the update to version 4.

This does not currently build. To be honest I'm not exactly sure why...I don't think its an issue with the PKGBUILD, might be an issue with a dependency.

Building manually from both the current version and the previous version, and using various aur helpers has yielded this same error on 3 systems for me.

`/usr/bin/ld: menubar.o: undefined reference to symbol 'acs_map'`

Curious, works fine for me on a computer that didn't have it installed before. I checked the output of updpkgsums and no differences there either

tuftedocelot commented on 2016-10-09 13:24

Updated. Thanks, hcb
