salamander commented on 2021-02-20 08:16 is the theme of my choice, which i now try to get running correctly with conky.

obviously, the repo version of conky will not display the rings at all, even though it has lua as a dependency? the theme instructions unfortunately are not very helpful either: install conky-full.

for this reason i am now going through the aur versions of conky including lua.

with conky-lua, the speed is not accurate and it is overall very laggy.

on the other hand, with conky-lua-archers, grapes works well.

i would like to stay with conky-lua, as it seems more up to date. any idea why the theme is not running smoothly?

or in other words, what is the big difference between these 2 aur packages?

Added makedepends git, updated to 1.11.5 and enabled pulseaudio support.

Hi. I'm trying to build this on a clean chroot (aurutils) and it looks this package is missing git as makedepends:

CMake Error at cmake/Conky.cmake:145 (message): Unable to find program 'git'

Can you please add it? Thanks

The official package is compiled with PulseAudio support enabled; would you mind adding that to this PKGBUILD?

edit: more information here

CMake Error at cmake/Conky.cmake:116 (message):
  Unable to find program 'git'

Please, could you add git to makedepends?

Thank you @Espionage . I'm afraid there isn't anything we can do about that on the PKGBUILD side since having it conflict with lua doesn't seem to make sense...

I've found that doing a makepkg of this package (or any other AUR conky package with lua support) when lua 5.3 is installed will cause it to build incorrectly. This causes a segmentation fault when the lua_load function in a conky configuration file is called. The solution to this problem is apparently to re-run the makepkg after having removed lua 5.3 from the system, as this package uses the lua51 package (i.e. Lua 5.1).

I wanted to post this here because it was quite frustrating for a number of hours of debugging until finally identifying the issue based on my interpretation of a gdb output which seemed to be looking for the lua 5.1 dependencies but not finding them.

I installed the lua 5.3 package after having successfully tested the lua_load function in a conky configuration script and it now appears to work despite the presence of both lua 5.3, 5.1 (and 5.2 which is required for some parts of GNOME).

I found the issue. Line 61 in doc/CMakeFiles/docs.dir/build.make is the problem. xsltproc was not downloading the file. A look at the Docbook Wiki shows this as a none error. As suggested I reinstalled docbook-xsl and docbook-xlt. The package installed without a hitch.

I cannot reproduce this, @graybeard. Maybe it's just a problem with internet or server speed?

graybeard commented on 2017-07-18 20:26

I am experiencing the exact same issue as argamanaz did back on 2016-04-16.
A solution was never posted.
Does anyone know why the file is not downloading? When done manually it download without an issue.
