hello, updated PKGBUILD here:

what I changed: - (due to some change upstream) it was installing in /opt directely so it was hard to understand what directories were of extempore, now it installs into /opt/extempore-git - "make assets" now fails as it is now in the same cmake call with ASSETS option

Getting this error during the build, haven't figured out how to resolve it yet:

I'm getting the same error as n3mo. Moreover, running SHELLOPTS=xtrace make DESTDIR=../../pkg reveals that the build is trying to copy from src/extempore/lib instead of src/extempore/lib64 where it actually exists.

I'm encountering the following error during the (possibly final) stage of the build labelled as "Install the Project" (I have replaced my unique path with ellipses):

Error copying file "" to ".../extempore-git/src/extempore/libs/platform-shlibs".

Thanks @pizzataco, that should be fixed now.

I encountered an error about missing an assets folder. It looks like this should happen from CMakeLists.txt but it did not. I had to manually download the tgz and extract it in src/extempore/ before a successful build.

Thanks @abdo, it works.

abdo commented on 2017-02-22 16:25

It wants /opt/extempore not /opt/extempore/runtime

Just do extempore --sharedir /opt/extempore, or the cd thing.

Hi @abdo. Thanks for providing this package.

When I run extempore in the console I get : "ERROR: Could not locate file: init.xtm"

I tried setting : "--runtime to /opt/extempore/runtime" and (cd)change the directory to same path but that did not solve the issue.

I read :!searchin/extemporelang/init.xtm%7Csort:relevance/extemporelang/N69Ot3l1PYQ/pRT45xniAQAJ
but I could not figure out the problem.

What I am missing?
