Please report issues and patches to

Travis Build Status: <img alt="Build Status" src="" />

Use env vars to control build process:
  • DISABLE_CUDA=1 to skip cuda kernel build (cycles+compositor)
  • DISABLE_NINJA=1 to switch build system to make (default:ninja)
Yay users warning:

Since yay relies solely on aur-rpc to solve dependencies instead of calling makepkg --sync it can't follow dependencies logic defined in PKGBUILD. That's why it's up to the user to provide dependencies to enable features.

tl;dr; If you want to prebuild cycles kernels, you have to install CUDA beforehand. If you don't have CUDA installed, PKGBUILD will silently skip cycles kernel build.

openvdb4.revert.patch is not needed anymore:

I tend to rebuild all my packages few times a month to check if everything works fine.
blender-2.8 stops working after 25.09 cause of openvdb4 compatibility patch which breaks blender against archs openvdb package. I patch this today and everything works fine now.

Building entire `install_deps` brigs all blender dependencies redundant to arch packages to /opt directory.

Lately i had big problems installing this package, compilation always failed.

So i downloaded the git and compiled the sources according to the manual, the only substantial difference with pkgbuild is the lack of dependency installation.



After the dependencies are installed, the pkgbuild works perfectly from Yaourt ;)

@polarathene: fixed temporarily by dropping blender player. Also added cmake function for automatic selection of CUDA computes arch, for a faster rebuild.

@novemverist fixed now. happy blending!

Nice ;) But there is something wrong with the "blender-2.8.desktop" that gets packaged, because it's basically just a copy of the normal blender.desktop file and does not contain a reference to the "blender-2.8" executable. I had to manually change some entries after package installation.

bartus commented on 2017-07-14 12:54

Come on, come all - test new sweet features of upcoming blender 2.8 release ;)
{package non conflicting with blender, nor blender-git}
