@VirtualTam, I don't have a solution for the install-related errors. They seem to be harmless. But it would be nice to eliminate them once and for all. So if you figure this out please share! :)

@Tvangeste: thanks, I'll update the PKGBUILD to reflect these changes!
Do you have any clue regarding 'goldendict.png' and 'goldendict.desktop' being stripped when running 'make install'? As it seems to be 'qmake-qt4'-related, I started this thread[1] to gather some info...

A comment from one of upstream GoldenDict maintaners :)

1. There is no need to manually deal with *.qm/*.qs files anymore. It has been fixed upstream.

2. The dependencies are a bit outdated. phonon is not used by GoldenDict anymore, ffmpeg is needed instead. Here's my list of dependencies:
depends=('hunspell' 'libvorbis' 'libxtst' 'libzip' 'qtwebkit' 'libao' 'ffmpeg' 'lzo' 'bzip2')

Alternatively, one can build GoldenDict without ffmpeg support (the internal audio player will be disabled, naturally). To do so provide the following prameter to qmake: qmake "DISABLE_INTERNAL_PLAYER=1"

3. No need to delete app-install anymore, it has been fixed upstream too.

Update 1.5.0.RC.96.g2a12036-1
- Patching the Qt project file is no longer necessary to install in /usr.
- There is a minor, non-blocking error when running "make install": GNU strip is called on "goldendict.desktop" and "goldendict.png", as can be seen in the makefile generated by qmake-qt4 (see the install_icons and install_desktops targets). Has anyone a clue on how to tackle this issue?

two suggestions:
* "|| return 1" are needed since years
* please put ${srcdir}/${pkgdir} between double apixes. BTW, you don't even need to call `cd ${srcdir}/${_gitname}`, `cd ${_gitname}` is enough because makepkg exec `cd ${srcdir}` in every function (build/package/prepare...)

Update: GoldenDict now installs under /usr ;-)

+1 for /usr ;)

VirtualTam commented on 2013-05-16 19:39

Installing in /usr instead of /usr/local is not such a big deal, nor an absolute necessity; [community]'s PKGBUILD patches[1] the Qt project file to achieve this purpose. If requested (it seems so ;-) ), I can update goldendict-git's PKGBUILD as soon as I get back to my 'arch-dev' computer, say next week!

I'm next supporting quite's opinion related to moving from /usr/local to /usr.

quite commented on 2013-05-16 18:52

@VirtualTam: I think the idea is that packaged software should go in /usr, and /usr/local be left for manually compiled things. Of all 133 AUR packages on my system, only goldendict-git install in /usr/local, so it can't really be said to be "usual". You are both providing, replacing and conflicting with "goldendict" from the main repositories, so why not install it in the same place? But do as you please ;)
