@mandos: WTF... What driver/graphic card do you have? Does it happen with some other apps?

mandos commented on 2012-10-06 17:34

Well you know bugs, they sneak into code all the time! Speaking of them arduide now freezes my computer when it starts.

I did two tests, both times X froze

@mandos: what the fuck is wrong with me... That should be fixed now.

I must have introduced this typo after a first successful install and thus, kde was showing it to me as if nothing was wrong...

I believe it should /usr/share/applications (note the "s" in the end)

@mandos: The file you are looking for is installed there: /usr/share/application/arduino-ide.desktop
As for why you cannot find this file in the repo, it is because it is generated by a shell script called (

I do see this line:
-- Installing: /home/bill/AUR/arduide-git/pkg/usr/share/application/arduino-ide.desktop
when compiling the project, but the .desktop file is not copied in the specified folder.
Actually it seems like it is not inside the repository.

@mandos: I fixed many things but I may have broken it for you. Tell me if this version satisfies you.

.desktop file is here:
lacking a better icon and considering that Arduino is somewhat of a dependency (although not in this AUR package) I added the default Arduino icon.
Of course this can be changed.

The changes required in the CMakeLists.txt seem to be just this:
install(FILES arduide.desktop DESTINATION "/usr/share/applications/")
at the end of CMakeLists.txt. I suppose it would be better to change the path with a variable, but I do not really know how to accomplish such a task.

@mandos: Cool :) If you could modify arduide's CMakeLists.txt to install it too, it would be even better ;)

Never done that! I'll take it as a challenge (an easy one it seems) :)

I'm looking into it
