Here's a quick solution with cmakes ExternalProject_Add(PATCH_COMMAND)

Apply with: git am -s < <(curl -s

@bartus the 1st issue should be reported to the upstream. Replace the compiler to gcc10 did not fix it yet. 3dslicer builds a python distribution and some python packages, there might be the same gcc version issue.

bartus commented on 2021-06-20 17:23

Two things:

1st. Wont build against current gcc:11 version, need to pin gcc:10 or patch sources with missing <limits> header. Error is triggered in ITK/GDCM subproject.

2nd. Please remove ${pkgver} form sources array, as it create redundant clone for 3dslicer repo each time version is updated.

@bartus You could simply install this pkg from Arch Linux Chinese Community Repository. I also maintain pkg teem there with cmake fix. So, if you'd like to build 3dslicer from source, you also need the teem pkg from ArchLiuxCN repo. You could check all pkg build log in ArchLinuxCN repo here.

Won't build after f921426afaf3 against modified teems package #792288 (cmake issue):

CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.19/Modules/ExternalProject.cmake:3116 (get_property):
  get_property could not find TARGET teem.  Perhaps it has not yet been

Without modifying teems got this error.

@bartus sorry, but pkg teem is not maintained by me.

teem package cmake configuration is broken, already posted a patch to the maintainer

Perhaps consider packaging the svn version of the teem for AUR as it had cmake configuration rewritten in 2019 ( teem:1.10.0 is from 2012 )

Hi, I could now build 3dslicer from the source, see also the PKGBUILD. You could install it from Arch Linux Chinese Community Repository.

Two issues:

  • Symlinking /opt/3dslicer/Slicer is fragile to execution directory (only full path works from my home dir). Solution: Do what zotero does; wrap by symlink to path-resolving script, e.g.
exec "$(dirname "$(readlink -f "$0")")" "$@"
  • XDG desktop file fails due to icon suffix (.png), check with desktop-file-validate /usr/share/applications/3dslicer.desktop, thus not displaying the application. Solution: Drop file suffix in .desktop (icons found by stem alone).

I also suggest /usr/share as an install prefix rather than /opt, if possible.

@gdolle It's really hard to build 3dslicer from source. It would compile python 2.7 from source and bundle with 3dslicer.
