Ran into a problem while compiling:

/usr/lib/ undefined reference to `FT_Get_Var_Blend_Coordinates'
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [zuluCrypt-gui/CMakeFiles/zuluCrypt-gui.dir/build.make:1654: zuluCrypt-gui/zuluCrypt-gui] Error 1
make[1]: *** [CMakeFiles/Makefile2:994: zuluCrypt-gui/CMakeFiles/zuluCrypt-gui.dir/all] Error 2
make: *** [Makefile:128: all] Error 2

sudo pacman -S --asdeps freetype2 cairo fontconfig

source for workaround: for me.

@egrupled: fixed. Thanks for your help. I would better not work so late;-)

There is typo in new PKGBUILD:

should be:

@salan54 That's reasonable. Thanks.

@egrupled : this is the conversation I had with the developer about KDE and Gnome flags :

"I looked at the PKGBUILD file this morning before the request was made
and i though the same too,that the option should be "NOKDE=false" if
present but it should be removed all together.

I think both NOGNOME and NOKDE options should not be present in the
PKGBUILD file. This way, support for libsecret and kde wallet will be
auto enabled when they are found to be present and disabled when they
are found to be absent.

Just don't mention kwallet in a list of dependencies to avoid dragging
it in as a forced dependency but libsecret forced dependency should
stay since it doesnt drag in that much.

This way,those who want KDE integration can install kwallet first and
then build zuluCrypt and zuluCrypt will pick it up automatically."

I will remove the KDE and Gnome flags from the PKGBUILD. Of course, you can always edit the PKGBUILD to fulfil your needs.

Could you enable kwallet support by changing -DNOKDE=true to -DNOKDE=false?

version 5.2.0
-- add ability to select a file manager to use to open mount points. A file manager can be set through
zuluCrypt-gui->menu->options->set file manager.
-- dont run zuluCrypt-gui and zuluMount-gui from root's account when running in mixed mode.
-- add arabic translation.

SiriKali[1] maintainer managed to add the signature verification step and looking at how they did it may help you in trying to add the ability here.

@salan54 I have no idea, can't reproduce this. You can try to delete or rename ~/.gnupg folder and start from fresh config.

@mhogomchungu Archlinux is already pushing gpg checks whenever possible[1] so using it in AUR would be consistent. Also if you sign your releases (which is great) you can expect that someone actually verifies them :)

Anyway I thought it would be a nice feature for this PKGBUILD as zulucrypt targets people interested in additional security. Of course I'm not pushing anyone to this especially if our maintainer have issues.
