@codazoa I had the same problem.

After running ddd using the terminal ($ ddd) I had multiple warning messages saying something like : "Cannot convert string "...." to type FontStruct"

After a couple of research and spending hours to find a fix, I've finally found this : "Some programs only work with bitmap fonts. Two major packages with bitmap fonts are available, xorg-fonts-75dpi and xorg-fonts-100dpi." (From the AUR : https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/xorg)

So basically, you need to run this command :

$ xdpyinfo | grep resolution

And get the xorg-fonts-XXdpi (with XX = 75 or 100) that is closer to the output value of the command above.

You can install a xorg-fonts package using pacman :

$ sudo pacman -S xorg-fonts-100dpi

Once you've done that, run :

$ sudo pacman -S gdb

Then reboot and everything should work.

https://imgur.com/a/FKMIpFI After a fresh install of manjaro with GNOME DE, DDD's language is set to something other than english. Locale is set to en_US.utf8 and the only language support installed is english. Not sure if this is a bug in the most recent version but it worked in manjaro KDE just 2 weeks ago.

The fonts in DDD are somehow using the wrong configuration for me, they look bad in general. I made a forum thread about it and I'd appreciate any help!

is this package still maintained?

Yes, I just adopted and patched it, solving the friends compilation error

confirm: https://github.com/Programatic/ddd works like a charm in open Motif while the AUR package does not build.

@kaptoxic I used the fix @0xjmz supplied and put it up here in the PKGBUILD and .SRCINFO: https://github.com/Programatic/ddd It installs fine for me now, you can update it if you want.

I applied a patch found here http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?41997 which simply "emulates" default values. It compiles and works.

No i don't know how to fix it but probably gcc-9.1 just builds on a higher C++ standard so you could try changing the standard and check if that fixes it.@kaptoxic
