@kubrick I finally had the time to merge your changes.

Thanks a lot for your contribution. I put yourself as co-maintainer for this package.

@ArnaudNux I updated to fix the OpenJPEG compatibility issue.

@gromain: feel free to merge changes / hand-over package maintenance...

Please check-out my proj8 branch on

Big thanks to Fyleo for the PR:

Aside from the proj fix mentioned before, I had to install qt5-tools to be able to build. Please add it to the dependencies.

I've just pushed an update to fix the compilation with OpenJPEG2.4, since this is going to be an issue too.

@Bitts311, can you try now?

Currently, this build is broken because of an update to the Proj library. The release of version 8.0.0 on March 1st 2021 (and the subsequent package update in the community repository) broke new compilations of xygrib.

One possible workaround would be to revert to the previous version of proj. The package can be manually downloaded from and installed with pacman (sudo pacman -U proj-6.3.2-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst).

@Bitts311 the error lies within the codebase itself, there was no update. See next comment.

This package requires qt5-tools in order to build (and run?).
