Updated. Hope you don't mind I didn't increase the pkgrel.

@SanskritFritz, what's so epic about it? Just try building the package in a clean chroot.

That's an epic list of makedepends, where did you get it from?

lightdot commented on 2021-10-31 23:34

Thanks for taking the time to take over and update this great package!

A couple of build dependencies are missing:

makedepends=('cmake' 'mesa' 'qt5-base' 'qt5-svg' 'qt5-webkit' 'qt5-tools')

Please could you update it or orphean it if you don't want to update it anymore please ? It was flaged out of date 1 year ago.

Fontmatrix keeps crashing on my system, no matter what I do.

Would it be possible to build from source instead of using the package?

es20490446e commented on 2019-09-15 00:59

The request has been declined, cause it goes against the rules:

It seems that Arch favors software built from source compared with binaries, most likely for transparency about what the software really does.

wedeluxe, it would be quite useful if you could provide some reference links about what you mention, so I could study the matter more in dept.

es20490446e commented on 2019-09-15 00:52

When the request has been answered I will let you know.

That said the fact that the software is working in you system doesn't mean it isn't buggy, I thought that was quite obvious :P

es20490446e commented on 2019-09-15 00:45

@wedeluxe. The root problem here is that these two packages are providing the same version of the software, but the to go package is actually the least capable for general usage.

So I have requested the following merge request:

qtwebkit and qtwebkit-bin provide the same version of qtwebkit, but the first one takes hours to compile.

I would delete qtwebkit, and rename qtwebkit-bin into qtwebkit.

Alternatively rename qtwebkit into something like qtwebkit-src, and rename qtwebkit-bin into qtwebkit.

So the precompiled version of the software is the to go version.
