sortenoscia: Please do not give bad advices. The only correct answer to PieterGen's issue was that given by bidulock.

make install
an go stable

bidulock commented on 2014-06-26 10:42

That's not it not building: that's you not having installed the packages necessary to build it.

You must have something wrong. I do:

[brian@habeascorpus ~]$ pacman -Qo /usr/lib/pkgconfig/libxaw3dxft.pc
/usr/lib/pkgconfig/libxaw3dxft.pc is owned by libxaw3dxft 1:1.6.2c-1

acampbell commented on 2014-06-17 11:50

I can't compile this. I get:

P -MF .deps/fontOp.Tpo -c -o fontOp.o fontOp.c
Package libxaw3dxft was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libxaw3dxft.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'libxaw3dxft' found
In file included from fontOp.c:30:0:
/usr/include/X11/Xft/Xft.h:39:22: fatal error: ft2build.h: No such file or directory
#include <ft2build.h>

Compilation terminated

I have installed the latest libxaw3dxft although I can't see libxaw3dxf.pc anywhere.


bidulock commented on 2014-04-21 20:51 is still putting its app defaults in /etc/X11/app-defaults instead of /usr/share/X11/app-defaults

kfgz commented on 2014-04-08 19:19

Strange. I had older version (1.6.2.b) of libxaw3dxft. After upgrade to 1.6.2c problem is fixed. Thx.

bidulock commented on 2014-04-07 11:31

Desktop file is at

bidulock commented on 2014-04-06 16:50

xpaint is placing its app-defaults files in /etc/X11/app-defaults: this should be changed to /usr/share/X11/app-defaults.

haawda commented on 2014-04-05 14:45

You can use a paste service for the desktop file.

kfgz, cannot confirm, builds again fine here. Maybe you need the newest version of libxawxft.

bidulock commented on 2014-04-05 04:51

Can't send mail to you email address.

bidulock commented on 2014-04-04 23:53

I sent you a src package with a much better xpaint.desktop file.

Please try to add


to the PKGBUILD.

neitsab commented on 2014-04-02 13:14

Fails to build on my system :
echo "#define XPAINT_VERSION \"2.9.9\"" > version.h
./substads -single xpaint.1 XPAINT_VERSION 2.9.9
make: ./substads: Command not found
Makefile:1038: recipe for target 'xpaint.1' failed
make: *** [xpaint.1] Error 127

==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Any idea? Should I report this upstream ?

bidulock commented on 2013-12-27 12:39

Can't find freetype2 headers anymore. Add following to build():

sed -i 's,freetype2/freetype,freetype2,g' configure

haawda commented on 2013-03-22 21:22

removed .png-extension in desktop file's Icon entry.

haawda commented on 2013-01-28 20:18

Update, needs libxaw3dxft 1.6.2b.

haawda commented on 2012-03-04 23:32

Fails to build for me in, see

haawda commented on 2011-10-14 19:27


haawda commented on 2011-04-04 19:32

Hm, builds here without that option. But I added it.

kfgz commented on 2011-04-04 19:20

Solution: add options=(!makeflags) to PKGBUILD.

No, both belong to base-devel.
