@taittech package updated. thanks.

Should bump package to 53.0

One note though, I was unable to compile 53.0 without expicitly setting -j1 as a make option on make config. Without it, there were problems with files overwriting eachother:

File emacspeak-loaddefs.el changed on disk. Discard your edits? (yes or no) rm -f cus-load.el

Adding -j1 to make config fixed it; make -j1 config

Compiled successfully on aarch64 with no modifications to source code or compilation options.

tclx just added aarch64 support.

If this is added, emacspeak will be compileable on raspi 4/400s with no fuss.

Fast and dirty fix, which is somewhat correct according to current ./etc/ is to install whole directory. I.e. edit your PKGBUILD:

  • remove obsolete "lesstif" from depends() and add "openmotif" to optdepends()

  • remove "install=" entry, it's completely obsolete

  • "make install" doesn't work anymore -- use fast and dirty fix to install whole dir:

package() {

local d=$pkgdir/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/emacspeak

install -d -- "$d"

cp -a "$srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver/." "$d"

find "$d" ( -type d -or ( -type f -executable ) ) -execdir chmod 755 {} +

find "$d" -type f -not -executable -execdir chmod 644 {} +

# Add convenient wrapper to keep your configs unmodified

local s=$pkgdir/usr/bin/emacspeak

install -d -- "${s%/*}"

printf '#!/bin/sh\nemacs -l '"'%s'"' "$@"\n' "${d#$pkgdir}/lisp/emacspeak-setup.el" >"$s"

chmod 755 "$s"

Package is now six releases behind upstream, it would be good to update it.

izahn commented on 2016-05-03 20:36

This package is now two versions behind. I don't think it will take much to update; I have a working PKGBUILD at There are lots of good things in version 44, including better helm support.
