Sorry for the long wait, I was and still am pretty swamped with work currently. Anyhow xastir does now build without issues here with the current xorgproto - No need for an update of the PKGBUILD. Can this be confirmed? Any issues left that need to be taken care of?

privong commented on 2018-02-21 14:14

There's now an updated xorgproto version which includes Print.h. I was able to successfully compile/install xastir after updating xorgproto.

not_anonymous commented on 2018-02-20 18:19

Please see "xastir-fix" in the aur repo. It has the needed changes to "fix" the recent issues involved. This new package, xastir-fix, is meant to be a temporary replacement package. Hopefully the upstream issues with printproto/xorproto will be fixed and this package here (xastir) will be usable/useful again.

not_anonymous commented on 2018-02-15 22:55

1) Get the archlinux packager to remove printproto from the "conflicts" field of the xorgproto package BECAUSE the files from the older printproto package are NOT included in his package.

2) Get him, others or even yourself to package up the older printproto package so the missing files can be placed into the includes file-system-hierarchy.

( IF the archlinux packager does not "fix" the xorgproto package, YOU could consider creating your own with the change as outlined in no. 1 above.)

I might be able to recover "X11 / extensions / Print.h" from a previous version of arch (my oldest local backup) but even assuming that it works I still have to figure out what the software problem is with missing the Xorg side service. Although it may not work only something related to the printing.

not_anonymous commented on 2018-02-14 23:35

X11/extensions/Print.h (the missing file) was supplied by the "printproto" package. That has been removed from archlinux's binary repos and "replaced/provides" with the "xorgproto" package which does NOT contain that file.......sigh. (i.e. This will not compile and will give the error simona mentions herein; unless the host-system hasn't been updated recently....double sigh.)

AxPU ... perhaps you should "bitch-this" upstream ?

/usr/include/Xm/Xm.h:63:10: fatal error: X11/extensions/Print.h: File o directory non esistente #include <x11 extensions="" print.h=""></x11>

It may be necessary to manually remove xastir (pacman -R xastir) before reinstalling to resolve the conflict of uninstalling lesstif for replacement with openmotif.

Then reinstall the new package.

privong commented on 2017-09-04 21:23

It appears as though lesstif (which is no longer maintained) has been removed from AUR. I guess it would be good to update the dependencies to use `openmotif` instead. I just re-built xastir with this change made manually and it compiled and seemed to run fine.

AxPU commented on 2017-03-12 08:12

Thank you, will fix it.

I'll also switch over the sources source (SIC!) to Github in the process, will take me a couple days to get into it, stay tuned..

Bevan commented on 2017-03-05 10:07

Hi! The line "MimeType=text" in both of the desktop files is invalid. It should probably be "MimeType=text/plain". This e.g. makes update-desktop-database output errors.

nickoe commented on 2015-07-30 19:39

@netcrusher, how, why? Works fine here.

netcrusher commented on 2015-07-30 18:49

It seems that the MD5 hashes are broken.

hotaru commented on 2015-04-23 04:52 says:
"In 2012, the motif source has been relicensed to LGPL, making the lesstif source redundant and obsolete, as its goal has been achieved, a free motif. As lesstif is practically unmaintained and has serious bugs in the copy/paste realm, I advice to use the Motif source instead of this source."

packages should really depend on openmotif instead of lesstif, and if people really want to use lesstif instead of openmotif, the correct way to do that is "provides=('openmotif')" in the lesstif package.

nickoe commented on 2014-11-10 22:44

Ok, thank you for your investigation. But I got it by uncommenting it, so that is ok for me for now. But maybe the sed command needs some quotation marks.

AxPU commented on 2014-11-10 21:42

Sorry, I'm not at all familiar with yaourt except what is written about it on the Arch Wiki page.

The error seems to be that the doc directory is not created and so copying files to it fails. I did look into the Makefile but canot find any difference to the other install targets.

I did test build/install on a freshly installed Arch VM and it does work using only makepkg. If you have any idea where yaourt differs from the makepkg way we could figure out how to fix the issue.

nickoe commented on 2014-11-07 06:47

This is the error I get, I should tell I am using yaourt. I seems I did not get this error when I used makepkg directly.

AxPU commented on 2014-11-07 00:15

It does build here I have to say. I will look into the issue and try to figure out building in a "virgin" VM - will report back as soon as I know more

nickoe commented on 2014-11-05 02:25

This build fails as is, the sed -i -e s:doc/xastir:xastir/doc: Makefile line seems to break the build.

AxPU commented on 2014-06-13 20:54

Here is an updated package, please test and report if the issue is fixed.

AxPU commented on 2014-06-12 23:00

Hmm, unfortunately I cannot repeat you error - meaning it builds fine here. Anyway I'm updating the package to the current/new AUR standards and will post it here within the next days or so. Hopefully this will then build on your end too.

beej commented on 2014-06-09 20:33

I'm getting a build error on this; looks like it's during some documentation installation:

AxPU commented on 2013-11-21 22:49

I did some research into this and think that is not possible in a PKGBUILD. Reading about the history of motif/openmotif and lestif respectively I think I could switch to openmotif with the next update.

Any input about this idea?

privong commented on 2013-11-18 03:21

2.0.4 works for me, with openmotif.

Also, is there a way to require one of lesstif or openmotif, instead of requiring lesstif? This might be a PKGBUILD limitation, but I'm not sure.

AxPU commented on 2013-08-12 22:38

Updated to 2.0.4

Does work here but please test and post results!

Anonymous comment on 2013-01-14 00:31

Latest version is 2.0.4, dated 2012-12-04.

Anonymous comment on 2012-02-05 18:31

This will not build with the current version of automake. You can rollback to automake 1.11.1 or build xastir-cvs.

nickoe commented on 2011-05-04 21:46

I just needed to remove my .xastir folder. :)

Anonymous comment on 2011-05-04 21:33

Oh, make sure you've turned off any other maps, at least to begin with.

The initial screen is black on mine, and it takes a few seconds for the map tiles to download. It seems to be *really* slow at downloading tiles, for some reason.

Anonymous comment on 2011-05-04 21:31

Not entirely. It works here...

Maybe you could try renaming your .xastir directory, so it forces xastir to create a totally new one. There may be some weird setting preventing it showing up. Other than that, you could email me a tarball of your .xastir directory privately so I can test it.

nickoe commented on 2011-05-04 21:21

Thank you. But do you know why I get a black screen on the map, when I use the online OSM mapnik?

Anonymous comment on 2011-05-03 21:37

Fixed, with a patch to repair the borked

This is 1.9.8 - it is *not* out of date as 2.0.0 cannot be built.

This package will not be updated in the future, unless upstream gets its head out of its collective arse and starts answering emails and fixing showstopper bugs.
