/usr/share/fritzing/parts contains the parts db which is provided by the package, which should not be updated by the user. Instead, the user can run the command "fritzing_clone_parts" once which clones the parts db into the user's home (located under ~/.local/share/fritzing). On next start, Fritzing will use this parts db instead of the one under /usr/share. From now on updating the db should work.

This is somehow a workaround to provide both a package that works out-of-the-box and the self-update functionality of Fritzing. See for a discussion on this. This package basically applies the changes of the pull-request to implement this functionality.

All packages in the base-devel group are expected to be installed when using the AUR. They must not be included in the list of dependencies.

pkg-config was not installed and now fritzing is compiling. Thank you! In my opinion pkg-config must be included in the dependencies. It seems only be needed during compiling, so if not oncluded as dependency it would be useful to check to give a hint to install it temporary.

Can you please check the output of the following command?

pkg-config --path libgit2

If this command is not installed on your machine this would explain the behavior. In that case please install all packages in base-devel.

The problem with this error notification persists:

Project ERROR: libgit2 include path not found in /fritzing/src/fritzing-app-CD-498/../libgit2/include

I tested to compile with: - git clone ... makepkg - trizen -S fritzing

@guitsi: That is a different issue. I can reproduce it by removing/commenting the following line in the PKGBUILD:

sed -i 's/LIBGIT_STATIC = true/LIBGIT_STATIC = false/'

Did you by accident do that? Apart from that I see that you build in a chroot. Can you briefly describe how you build this package?

Hi ! The issue with libgit2 doesn't seems to be solved :

Project ERROR: libgit2 include path not found in /fritzing/src/fritzing-app-CD-498/../libgit2/include

cliffordwhansen: Thanks for figuring this out! I included the patch here.

Tired to installed this today and ran in to a libgit2 version issue, there is a fix in the Fritzing dev branch[1]:


118 -: #if LIBGIT2_VER_MINOR > 24
118 +: #if LIBGIT2_VER_MAJOR > 0 || (LIBGIT2_VER_MAJOR == 0 && LIBGIT2_VER_MINOR > 24)

cgirard: The reason was that we need to call Fritzing during package() in order to generate the parts database. However, I just pushed a change that works around this problem. Could you please retry?

Why is this package requiring a display to build?

qt.qpa.xcb: could not connect to display
qt.qpa.plugin: Could not load the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in "" even though it was found.
This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

Available platform plugins are: eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, vnc, xcb.
