After many nights of plowing through code i managed to get the horror release 11.1 done. And with that behind me i was able to progress much faster to 11.4 than i anticipated. With a bit of time to spare i decided to fix some theming bugs that Zenju had no interest in (https://freefilesync.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6978).

dlagent is causing build issues if the BUILDDIR is set to a another directory, please fix this.

I also had issues with wxgtk2 but figured out one could easily change the dependency without uninstalling. With pikaur, use pikaur -S --rebuild freefilesync, and when it asks to view the PKGBUILD, do so and replace the dependency wxgtk with wxgtk2. It works just fine for me.

I am having issues with webkitgtk (I think there is a conflict with webkitgtk-3 perhaps?) and wxgtk-git. I am new with AUR installs, so thanks for patience. I have this problem on three of my Arch Linux machines. Here is the final error when I try to install webkitgtk manually (same when running "yay -S freefilesync"):


autoreconf: configure.ac: not using Intltool
autoreconf: running: gtkdocize --copy
gtkdocize: GTK_DOC_CHECK not called in ./configure.ac
autoreconf: error: gtkdocize failed with exit status: 1
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare().
    Aborting...
error making: webkitgtk

Could this AUR be looking for an old dependency? Would webkitgtk-3 work?

P.S. I think I am reading that wxgtk is being skipped. Like the users below, I think the wxgtk2 might be the solution. I tried @Fuzzy 's recommendation to use yay --editmenu -S freefilesync, but I had the same result. I don't know how to edit a PKGBUILD with yay.

Edits: additional notes and learning markdown.

For those who use yayand don't want to download PKGBUILD manually - I used command yay --editmenu -S freefilesync to invoke PKGBUILD edit request during installation and replaced 'wxgtk' to 'wxgtk' at line #15.

It would help if you could update the PKGBUILD to make the dependency 'wxgtk2' instead of 'wxgtk'. When I tried to use 'pacman -Suy' today, it refused to update wxgtk2, because it broke freefilesync's dependency on 'wxgtk'. When I uninstalled freefilesync, I was able to update 'wxgtk2', but then I couldn't install freefilesync until I edited the PKGBUILD dependency to read 'wxgtk2'.

Since today, wxgtk2 is not build with provides=(wxgtk)

I changed the dependency from wxgtk to wxgtk2 and freefilesync builds successfully and runs with no problem

@jooch Thanks for your help!

And great thanks on upgrading and maintaining this package, I had no idea it has this much trouble.

jooch commented on 2020-12-22 21:11

@aminvakil I have tested the package on all my available systems, even one that is running the M word distro.

I can't reproduce it, are you up to date? If so, which mirror stable or testing? edit: From what i can see in your error log you might have to run 'makepkg -C'
