Yes I can fix to make it functionnal with "default way in game" but I think final user have to know the game uses midi music but I'm sure the majority of users of this package will use the default fluid soundfont.

Jesus, calm down.

You wanted to maintain the package and I obliged as soon as I got the mail. You haven't fixed the linking problem either and the background music thing is less than ideal. The dependency belongs in optdepends, especially when the game doesn't default to it.

Manjaro users have the ability to install optional dependencies and Windows users are entirely irrelevant (unless W10 uses AUR now). Telling vdemin to uninstall the package or edit the PKGBUILD is not a solution.

Yes, I did neglect to update the package for a whole month. That doesn't mean I'm not allowed to voice my opinion.

PS: The linker thing is caused by qmake. Last time I looked into it, it was a known problem where qmake automatically prepends /usr/lib to the library paths, and I found nothing to override this. So, with qmake, gcc and friends use the older system-wide doomsday libs instead of the freshly compiled ones. I gave up on finding a proper solution to this.

I think have the background music is required. You never solved the package link problem and never solved the music background background problem... I think you are bad placed to tell me how I have to correct YOUR original package... Sorry but I'm a little angry

I've got to agree with vdemin. Considering that you still have to manually select the soundfont in-game, I don't see why it should be included in the PKGBUILD.

Edit: Also, to nitpick. At the top I should be listed as 'Contributor' since that's the "proper" term for old maintainer.

Think majority of users will use the default soundfont. Experienced users can modify the PKGBUILD by themself if they have disk space trouble. I don't think many Arch users will cry for 100 additionnal MBs.

> You can remove the fluid package after install if you want.
Install what I don't need and remove it with '-Rdd'? No, thanks. This is not Arch way. Maybe this is Windows or Manjaro way. If a package is not necessary to run a program, it should be specified in optdepends. Especially such a large package.

You care about Windows and Manjaro users, but how about Arch Linux users?

That's an interressant question but I must consider "newbies in Linux World". I think it's better to offer a default usable soundfont... Don't forget, Manjaro distro uses AUR channel and I want consider it.

My opinion is: if there is more windows users happy of our distros more of that users will adopt Linux world. I'm sorry... I don't want to put this package as optional. You can remove the fluid package after install if you want.

Are you sure that soundfont-fluid is necessary?

Maybe put it in optdepends?

I will add the dependancy soundfont-fluid but it's correct you must precise the path of your soundfont (but there is other soundfounts, not juste FluidR3). For variable $MAKEFLAGS, I will test....

FredBezies commented on 2015-12-13 10:20

In order to make sound work, I had to install soundfont-fluid and select /usr/share/soundfonts/FluidR3_GM2-2.sf2 in audio options.

Also, make $MAKEFLAGS seems to be useless. Hope it helps :)
