This is now the binary package, that repackages upstream-provided binary, and works only for x86_64. The package aur/coolvlviewer builds fron source for both i686 and x86_64.

In version

  • Updated Dullahan to use CEF 89. WARNING: this involves using SSE3, which raises the viewer minimum CPU requirements to a SSE3-capable CPU (some old Athlon64 and Pentium CPUs may fail). If needed, you may still rebuild the viewer against CEF 88 by toggling the USE_OLD_CEF option in indra/cmake/00-BuildOptions.cmake.

  • Linux only: improved the installer by adding an "Install Wine SLVoice.exe" button to the last page/step.

In version, the configuration variable overrides from the 'cool_vl_viewer' wrapper script have been split and put and into a new "cool_vl_viewer.conf" file. This file may now also be copied and customized (by 'root') in /etc/ so to provide system-wide defaults for the viewer.

Indeed. I'll fix it, thanks.

PKGBUILD needs an update.

Dwheeler, I really don't see how it matters, since the launcher (and for the matter the desktop file) exist in "$srcdir/../". $srcdir itself contains the links. But sure, it is no problem, I'll do it over the weekend.

GordonGR, I'm changing my builds to use the arch's makechrootpkg, and I'm having the same issue as jens. Making the following change let it build successfully for me. Can you make this change to your PKGBUILD? Thanks!

# Install Launcher

-install -D -m755 $srcdir/../coolvlviewer.launcher \

+install -D -m755 $srcdir/coolvlviewer.launcher \

Hmm, it compiles fine to me.

I get the following error when I try to build the package with makepkg:

install: cannot stat '/tmp/makepkg/coolvlviewer-bin/src/../coolvlviewer.launcher': No such file or directory

Thx for your contribution GordonGR !

This package of of CoolVLViewer seems to work as a binary but i do unlike the fact i can't install a reproducable build of it and do not like binaries, if i am not able to compile it at myself.

Your source build seems to contain some errors, which should be fixed:

From my comments in this package:

The source build compiled, but Cool Viewer was not able to start - neither by clicking the icon and neither from terminal with:

[linux@q coolvlviewer]$ ./cool_vl_viewer Running from /opt/coolvlviewer ./bin/cool_vl_viewer-bin: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Bad shutdown.

If you have some time, please fix the source build. Thank you very much !
