@xpt thank you for your feedback, it should be fixed now.

Please change

install -Dm 644 "${srcdir}/${pkgname}.desktop" "${pkgdir}/usr/share/applications/${pkgname%-*}.desktop"


install -Dm 644 "${srcdir}/${pkgname%-}.desktop" "${pkgdir}/usr/share/applications/${pkgname%-}.desktop"

The file gmsh-bin.desktop doesn't exist.

Hi @ymermoud,

I am not sure your suggestion can be implemented while, simultaneously:

  • Following the Arch Linux Packaging Guidelines and, more importantly;
  • Allowing the software to work properly regardless of the python version installed in any possible system (other users might have other python versions and hence different directory structure).

If you work on python projects, I would recommend to go the pythonic way and create a virtual environment in your project, from within you can install gmsh (and any other dependency) with pip without any risk of interfering with your system python environment.

Could we install the module from the SDK to the proper place so that python can find it ?

Currently it is installed in /usr/lib/

It should be /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ /usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/

Thank you

@demolg it was a PKGBUILD bug. It should be fixed now.

@demolg Yes, I noticed it. The issue appears to be that and are two copies of the same exact file, and ldconfig does not like it because libraries are supposed to be symlinked to the full version (i.e. one of those file should be a symlink to the other). I will open up an issue upstream, as this is something that typically is addressed by the building system as far as I understand.

EDIT: issue opened.

when installing, it show:

(11/11) upgrading gnome-shell                      [######################] 100%
ldconfig: /usr/lib/ is not a symbolic link

@mantielero it is done now. Thanks.

Could you base this on gmsh-sdk?

The main advantage is that it provides also a lib and include folders. This enables using gmsh as a library through C and C++.

Ah sorry, upon further inspection I think this is an issue with pacaur, which has been discontinued.
