Updated PKGBUILD at

Shamelessly bodged from this, gentoo's conky build script, and conky-lua-nv.

@scofi16 Just put it at the end of the PKGBUILD file.

@benjarobin It worked like a charm. Good job.

@benjarobin where to add this function?

benjarobin commented on 2016-02-13 14:31

Just add the following function to fix it:

prepare() {
cd "${srcdir}/${_pkgname}-${pkgver}"
sed -i "s|tolua++ |toluapp |g" configure*

as a workaround, install 'conky-lua-nv" from AUR.

Hello guys! i have a little solution with "configure: error: tolua++, tolua++5.1, or tolua++-5.1 is required for Lua extras."

you need downgrade tolua++ 1.093-2

here the old versions!

The problem with the 'tolua++' dependency is that the source configure is looking for a binary '/usr/bin/tolua++'.

It would appear that binary has been renamed to 'toluapp' in the latest version of 1.93-2. The maintained and updated package by arch, as well as in the manual download of 1.93-2, seems to have renamed it (not Arch's fault, the fault of the author of the code that renamed everything).

In addition, the library was changed (*.so instead of *.a).

Personally, I don't like to get away from Arch's repos and packages - would rather have it fixed in this package. So, there are two "real" solutions.

The original package of tolua++ should have explained the breaking change of the rename. I would suggestion creating a symlink of the old binary to the new one.

1) Perhaps the easiest solution is just to modify this package to 'sed' the source configure file and replace all instances looking for the binaries with the newer/correct one.

2) The real solution is to have conky update their source to configure with either binary.

For anyone who has issue with tolua++, use tolua++ 1.0.93-1 instead of tolua++ 1.0.93-2. You can find it at
