New, fixed version of Sozi has been published on 25th March 2022 -

zeroconf commented on 2022-02-25 21:05 (UTC)

Yes, this parameter works - thank you! Sounds like Chromium CLI parameter

Just wondering, why such issue appeared and how this GPU sandbox disabling affects sozi work -

sbmomeni commented on 2022-02-24 12:47 (UTC)

@zeroconf Yes, this package compiles sozi sources with Electron v9.4.4 (bundled as a single binary executable).

I'll update this package when upstream settles on a non-beta release. By the way, the shows that the current "beta" fix is to disable the GPU sandbox. You can achieve/test the same effect with v21.12.06 using the same command line option:

sozi --disable-gpu-sandbox

zeroconf commented on 2022-02-22 22:00 (UTC) (edited on 2022-02-22 22:26 (UTC) by zeroconf)

Sozi developer says, that Sozi uses Electron and it comes as bundled with Sozi. Does Sozi in AUR have also bundled version of electron? If not, then this may the issue. There in discussion at is also listed electron versions used by Sozi versions.

zeroconf commented on 2022-02-21 18:05 (UTC)

Sounds like last issue is Sozi bug -

zeroconf commented on 2022-02-20 16:52 (UTC)

Hopefully works newer version better -

zeroconf commented on 2022-02-20 16:51 (UTC)

Currently cannot start Sozi 21.12.06-1.

If to start from CLI, then:

[39174:0220/] GPU process isn't usable. Goodbye.

@cmonty14 This error means that some of the source files were not downloaded correctly. You can find the offending file by this command:

makepkg 2>&1 | grep -v Erfolg

Remove the invalid files and retry.

medmedin commented on 2021-07-15 12:26 (UTC)

@sbmomeni, that was fast and excellent work, it's installed without problems, thanks really for making it easy to install this needed app :)

sbmomeni commented on 2021-07-15 09:51 (UTC)

Here you are @medmedin

medmedin commented on 2021-06-22 09:53 (UTC)

@sbmomeni, now, most arch packages are based on binary releases and don't require any compilation, the compilation is just waste of time and space, it's insane to wait 30min for sozi to finish installing ! This app has already deb and generic linux installers for both 32bits and 64bits so compiling it is not required anymore, it would be great to provide sozi-bin that downloads the installer so it becomes easy and fast. Concerning the dependency with Electron runtime, from version 18.01 the provided generic installer already embeds the runtime so it doesn't need any external Electron runtime or libraries.

sbmomeni commented on 2021-06-22 05:07 (UTC)

@medmedin Binary AUR packages (those packages which have the -bin suffix) download and repackage already built binaries (e.g., converting a .deb file to .pkg). However, this package is source-based, that is, it compiles the binary files on the machine which runs the makepkg command with no network access (after downloading the sources files).

About three years ago our installation script was merged in the upstream repo allowing a -bin package to be built, but it will not necessarily keep working on ArchLinux due to continuous updates (e.g., sometime we had to use a different electron version to keep Sozi working).

medmedin commented on 2021-06-21 20:59 (UTC) (edited on 2021-06-21 21:01 (UTC) by medmedin)

@sbmomeni The installation is slow and takes really long times due to compilation and dependencies building, Pamac gives a log with more than 10000 lines to finish the install process Why do we need to compile this app while the generic installer for Linux is already available ?

sbmomeni commented on 2021-04-30 11:21 (UTC)

@christianlupus The current sha1sum value of the SHASUMS256.txt file is 5e42a721dbdb5304b4f186a9278987d41f411f95 and package builds normally

What error message are you getting there? Also try removing the SHASUMS256.txt file in order to force a fresh download.

christianlupus commented on 2021-04-28 17:51 (UTC)

The file SHASUMS256.txt currently causes trouble with the checksums. Can you please correct this?

sbmomeni commented on 2020-09-17 15:48 (UTC)

@osc what is the issue? It builds here normally.

osc commented on 2020-08-26 15:03 (UTC)

Hi there seems to be an issue and the package is not building.

sbmomeni commented on 2020-07-04 05:30 (UTC)

@indodwi The error 416 indicates an unsatisfiable resumption range. So, find and empty your package build cache folder to abandon the corrupted file. If not fixed, test that URL in a browser to ensure that you can download it normally.

indodwi commented on 2020-07-03 23:14 (UTC)

Excuse me. I have a problem when installing sozi in manjaro When i build sozi from add/remove software gui suddenly stoped and this information:

could you help me? Thanks before

Reido commented on 2020-06-18 08:11 (UTC)

I got an error because I don't have the zip package installed. You might want to add it in the build dependencies.

@aurmyster @BrunoSpy

  1. Upgrade "nodejs" package to 14.3.0
  2. Remove the cache folder

Hi here,

I cannot install sozi on Manjaro KDE.

here is the message I get:

Thank you in advance for your help!

caos21 commented on 2019-05-31 03:55 (UTC)

Sozi takes 1.4Gb installed size. Only texlive-fontsextra has 1Gb in my box. Is this ok?

sbmomeni commented on 2019-04-26 08:17 (UTC)

Building version 19.04 needs about 10GB temp space.

sbmomeni commented on 2018-10-27 16:48 (UTC)

I was not able to install SOZI. I received the errors:

Is there a way to update this build recipe? I've tried installing SOZI from Sozi-18.04-1523042682-linux-x64.tzg but was unable to get to run.

nibor commented on 2018-03-07 14:17 (UTC)

First I had the same problem lylambda (tmp: not enough space on device), which can't be true as my tmp is set to 6.5 GB and still had 6.3 GB free space in the moment of (repeatable) error. Anyways, changing the build path in /etc/yaourtrc to /home/"user"/tmp helped to solve it.

But now I am getting the same error as a1rolo and don't have a solution yet:

After change the build path and a reboot, that's works. Thanks sbmomeni !

@lylambda The error message is saying "Aucun espace disponible sur le périphérique" which means "No available space on the device." You should either free some space on that device or change the build path to another device.

@lylambda The "semver" program is used for detecting package versions. In ArchLinux, "semver" depends on "nodejs" which depends on "icu" which provides the "" file which is missing in your system. Search for "/usr/lib/" file and install the package which provides it in Manjaro OS.

You can test your system by running

semver -r "^6.14.0" "6.24.1" "5.4.2"

which should output

Maybe it isn't neccesary. From

acorn5-object-spread Spread and rest properties support in acorn 5

NPM version

Since spread and rest properties are part of ECMAScript 2018, acorn now supports them out of the box. Just make sure that you use acorn >= 5.4.1 and set ecmaVersion >= 9. This plugin is deprecated.

rplanchuelo commented on 2018-02-10 11:29 (UTC)

@sbmomeni Thanks for the explanation. I appreciate it. I may try a bin package, just for the fun of it ;-)

sbmomeni commented on 2017-12-12 10:51 (UTC) (edited on 2017-12-12 10:53 (UTC) by sbmomeni)

@macxcool Now that our installation script is merged in upstream repo, a "-bin" package can use that approach. But it does not necessarily work as the ArchLinux continues updating. For example, we had to use a different electron version previously.

I'm just curious. Why wouldn't I download the Sozi tarball, untar it into /opt and run Sozi from there rather than do all this npm installation every time?

@Distag The folder that I use for building sozi (containing all dependencies and the building tmp files) occupies about 1.3 GB. So 6 GB is much more than enough. Did you check how much of /tmp was already filled? In the output of the second command (using --tmp /home/distag/tmp), I see that yaourt has failed trying to create a new folder in the /tmp again (no space left on device, mkdir '/tmp/distag/bower').

luuuciano commented on 2017-05-29 15:21 (UTC)

Heheh... I had to do makepkg in ~/ partition, to have more space for it...

@carmelom, @oberon2007 I updated some of dependencies... It now builds with nodejs v7.2.0

oberon2007 commented on 2016-12-02 17:10 (UTC) (edited on 2016-12-02 17:17 (UTC) by oberon2007)

Ok. The problem is that since the recent icu update we cannot just downgrade nodejs to v6. The old package is broken. I have created a new AUR package just now: nodejs6 Add this as a depends (or just install it, replacing nodejs) and sozi will build. Just be aware that building nodejs takes a while... ;)

oberon2007 commented on 2016-12-02 16:08 (UTC)

Build fails with: Running "nw-bundle" task Warning: Task "nodewebkit" not found. Use --force to continue.

Hi there, I'm signalling here that makepkg fails if one's using nodejs v7. Trying a manual build as explained on, I see that grunt is failing with "Error: Cannot find module 'internal/fs'", which I understood is a versioning problem related to node, rather than to the sozi package itself. My solution was to rely on nvm ( to switch back to version 6.0.0. Then everything worked fine. Edit: now I see that some time ago there was the same problem with nodejs 5 vs 6, sorry for the repost. Anyway, nvm seems a good way to make the downgrade for the build.

fsiegert commented on 2016-08-29 08:31 (UTC)

@sbmomeni Thanks for the quick reply (and packaging), that's even better! I have requested deletion of the sozi-extras-media package to avoid duplication and confusion.

sbmomeni commented on 2016-08-28 10:49 (UTC)

@fsiegert: Thanks for the package. As the "tools_texts2paths" and "extras_media" packages can be built from the same source files (without additional building), I added two new package_* functions to this package to create them. Your package functionality is now provided by [this]( subpackage and declared as an optional dependency.

fsiegert commented on 2016-08-26 07:58 (UTC)

Dear all, I have added a package for the sozi-extras-media which contains the Inkscape extensions needed to embed audio/video in the SVG (cf. @sbmomeni: Maybe this might be useful as an "optdepends" for sozi? And if you would prefer to take this over to make coordinated updates of both packages let me know and I'll add you as a co-maintainer or disown it. The package itself is completely trivial.

sbmomeni commented on 2016-06-30 15:34 (UTC)

@dodomorandi Thanks. It now works with nodejs6. BTW, the change which was suggested at <> was buggy. I commented about the correct change there.

dodomorandi commented on 2016-06-30 08:05 (UTC)

It should be possible to use nodejs6 instead of nodejs5 just fixing the lib/util/index.js file inside the archiver package. I found the details for this workaround here: I just tried and it seems to work flawlessly.

Distag commented on 2016-06-29 07:19 (UTC)

Hello, the compilation doesn't work

luuuciano commented on 2016-06-09 13:47 (UTC)

Oh, I see, thanks a lot for the tip & information sbmomeni!

sbmomeni commented on 2016-06-09 07:11 (UTC)

@luuuciano The nodejs5 is required as noted at <>. Until upstream add support for the nodejs6, you can temporarily downgrade to nodejs5 (it is just a build time dependency) and then revert to nodejs6 after building the package binary.

luuuciano commented on 2016-06-08 14:04 (UTC)

Mmmm, what to do when we have nodejs(6) installed? (and required for other packages)

sbmomeni commented on 2016-05-25 08:21 (UTC)

@grandchild It is updated.

sbmomeni commented on 2016-02-15 12:58 (UTC)

If you have a "src/build" folder from version 15.11, do NOT remove it. It will be used (automatically) as a cache to speed up the build.

macxcool commented on 2015-12-22 14:36 (UTC)

@sbmomeni Thanks for the explanation. I really do appreciate it. I learned a few things there ;-) Quite right about a PKGBUILD being able to build from provided sources when offline. This built beautifully. I was just surprised.

sbmomeni commented on 2015-12-22 12:05 (UTC)

@macxcool: FYI... The main source archive is "15.11.tar.gz" which depends on 4 npm packages for running and 18 npm packages for being compiled. And those dependencies are dependent on many other packages which bring in more dependencies themselves and so on :) The npm is a JavaScript package manager which resolves dependencies of JavaScript packages and downloads and installs them. About why I did it in this way: There are two general ways: 1. Using the pre-built binary of Sozi, 2. Compiling from sources. The first way is just acceptable for "sozi-bin" package. And for compiling from sources, where all of those source packages are required, I know about two methods for acquiring them: 1. Using the "npm install" command which finds and downloads them by itself (within the build() function), 2. Finding sources with a script (see comments in the PKGBUILD) and adding them to the "source" array and allowing the "makepkg" to download them. And I avoided the first method because: 1. The npm does a poor caching job; if it fails to download a package (which is likely to happen with a lot of dependencies; at least for those users who do not use the npm regularly and so do not have those packages downloaded in their cache folder previously), it will fail completely. That is, running "npm install" again will try to download everything (including downloaded packages) from scratch (no caching and no resumption). 2. Even if npm can be improved in next versions to solve the above item, a good PKGBUILD must be able to run the "build()" function without access to the Internet (so it can be built as while as its source files are provided in its source files path by some other means).

macxcool commented on 2015-12-21 16:25 (UTC)

@sbmomeni I know that the new Sozi is not an inkscape plugin anymore but I don't understand why there are so many 'source' files to download and process... more than 300MB. Why are you doing things this way? I'm just curious. Thanks for all the work that obviously went into this.

luuuciano commented on 2015-12-21 00:25 (UTC)

Wow... my notebook almost burned out! lol... Thanks a lot, installed it ok now...

sbmomeni commented on 2015-12-20 21:17 (UTC)

@luuuciano: There is a problem with website. Downloading the droid-sans multiple times, creates zip files with the same contained files and the same file sizes, but with different sha1sums! I switched the droid-sans source to website to fix it. And about inspection of a lot of source files: You can filter npm packages out with "ll | grep -v tgz" command.

luuuciano commented on 2015-12-20 20:04 (UTC)

When I tried to install it shows: droid-sans ... HAS FAILED (when checking files, a LOT of files) It is just me?

sbmomeni commented on 2015-12-19 08:36 (UTC)

Sozi is updated to version 15.11 and is no longer a plugin of inkscape. You can use any SVG editor to build the original SVG file and then use the Sozi independent GUI to add transitions to it. Run it from the command line as "sozi" without any argument and wait until it shows the "Load local file" button (this will take a few minutes...) and then select the SVG file.

qqqqqqqqq9 commented on 2015-11-08 19:50 (UTC)

Hi Distag, i haven't found an email address on the page. Since you seem to care a lot, take over the package.

qqqqqqqqq9 commented on 2015-09-29 11:07 (UTC)

The installation process has changed completely. I'll wait for the instructions to appear here.

qqqqqqqqq9 commented on 2015-09-28 13:37 (UTC)

Where does it say "stable"?

The source URL is broken. I think it should look like this: source=("${pkgname}-release-${pkgver}-${_extraver}.zip")

Clauz commented on 2013-03-21 10:39 (UTC)

gtk-engines should perhaps be a dependency to avoid gtk warnings?

commented on 2012-04-30 09:56 (UTC)

You forgot to move in "/usr/share/inkscape/extensions/" even "": Sozi does not work without it...

Updated version and dependencies. Thanks unhammer!

unhammer commented on 2010-12-01 13:54 (UTC)

I think python-lxml should be a dependency, I get an error message if I try without. Otherwise, works great :)
