@Gonzo2028: See here:

There are 2 alternative ways:
1. @aaronfischer splits the package into 25 different ones and whenever there is an update he will have to update 25 individual packages; good for the useres, not so good for the maintainer.
2. @aaronfischer "merges" all the files from the split packages into a single package. This will result in installing binaries, udev rules and .desktop files for 25 devices for every user. Less work for the maintainer, not practical for the users.

As is it, the maintainer maintains one single "split-package" and users that use an AUR helper such as yaourt, can uninstall the packages they don't need. This way users get to keep only the files they need to support their own device and the maintainer does not have to modify and commit 25 packages every time there is an update.

Hope this helps clear it.

@edward_81: Please read the previous comments here. I've talked to Stefan about this. Every version of roccat-tools need a specific version of libgaminggear to work correctly. There are two options here: Consistent/reliable package and a little bit of hasle on upgrades -- or easy upgrade process and the chance of a broken package with weird bugs everywhere. I've choosen the first option.

Is possible to change the dependency line for libgaminggear from:
Because every time i try to upgrade the system with yaourt/aur, it complain that roccat-tool-common need that exactly version of libgaminggear.

@gripped: Thanks for your hint. The version of cmake bumped to 3.12. I've updated the package and cranked up the pkgver on the libgaminggear package. Please update the libgaminggear package, then you can install the roccat-tools packages.

Does not build unless I manually copy a file into the scrdir

cp /usr/share/cmake-3.11/Modules/FindGAMINGGEAR0.cmake ($scrdir)/roccat/roccat-tools-kovaplus/src/roccat-tools-5.7.0/cmake_modules

Same error as in other comments "Could not find a package configuration file provided by "GAMINGGEAR0" (requested version 0.15.1) with any of the following names:"

libgaminggear is/was up to date

@foxhunt72: Try installing core/sqlite. Not sure if this is a new dependency. Let me know if this helps. If so, I will put it to the dependency array.

There was a cmake version bump, which killed a definition file for libgaminggear. Please reinstall libgaminggear to get the correct definition file on the correct place, so you can guild roccat-tools.

I get the same error message as @Freso. I've tried rebuilding libgaminggear, but it doesn't help...

Poohblah commented on 2018-03-28 00:45

@Freso, I had the same issue. I fixed it by rebuilding and reinstalling the libgaminggear AUR package.

StefanT commented on 2018-02-19 17:45

For me this package requires that I also install roccat-tools-ryosmk. Otherwise the configuration fails to start:

$ roccatryosmkfxconfig

roccatryosmkfxconfig: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Removing infinality font bundle allowed roccat to build properly, it seems infinality is no longer supported/updated, see more info here:

To remove infinality:

sudo pacman -S freetype2 fontconfig lib32-freetype2 lib32-fontconfig lib32-cairo
