@electricprism I am aware of that but currently have no fix for it.

Fails to build.

@ChlorideCull Thank you for your feedback.
I also thought it wasn't a that good idea using the build variable though. I will take a look at splitting the package later.
The patches I brought into are just some minor fixes. I added them because the Drawpile developer isn't quite active anymore.
Ninja was used since I adopted the package, so I hadn't thought about removing it.

I split the package for separation of client and server but kept using Ninja as - to my experience - it builds Drawpile much faster than make does (at least on my machine - i7 6700k). Also I haven't removed the Drawpile 1.0.3 patches because - like already mentioned - these are just some minor fixes and the developer of Drawpile isn't quite active anymore, thus updating to the latest GitHub commit isn't bad.

I'd for ease of use, I'd recommend restructuring the PKGBUILD to build a split package, instead of building different packages with the same name based on the "_build" variable.

Additionally, please don't pull additional features that are unreleased and patching them in, if the version says 1.0.2, I assume I will get the same 1.0.2 as the website.

Third, why is Ninja being used? It's just an additional dependency that, frankly, is unneccesary.

@fgaz I included a patch. It should build correctly now.

Also, I could add a git package if there is need to.

Doesn't work with lastest miniupnpc. Please update the pkgbuild to the lastest commit on branch stable-1.x

np, thanks for the update! works great.

SunRed commented on 2015-09-15 15:19

Sorry for the late update, had some problems when building with all optional deps, but it is building correctly now. :)

filwit commented on 2015-09-13 16:48

Please update to the newly released 1.0.2 soon! It has an important pressure-sensitivity bug fix which is preventing me from using my tablet correctly. Thanks for the AUR package :)

SunRed commented on 2015-08-09 12:02

Updated to 1.0.1!

SunRed commented on 2015-07-24 17:40

Updated to 1.0.0!

drawpile 0.9.11 is available.
Checksum is :

LucasHenderson commented on 2015-04-08 13:52

Out of date, latest version is 0.9.9

xyproto commented on 2015-01-07 13:15

Updated to 0.9.6.

xyproto commented on 2015-01-07 12:51

blurymind, please just flag the package as out-of-date or leave a short comment if you have additional information, to keep the comments (somewhat) clean. is one of many possible pastebin solutions.

As far as I can tell, your comment can be summed up as: "ui/icons/$pkgname.png should be ui/icons/builtin/$pkgname.png instead for version 0.9.6".

Updated to 0.9.4. Experienced an issue with "missing Qt platform plugin" in a virtual machine, will have to test on another system as well.
