This package will automatically retrieve and build the latest development snapshot of Guitarix from git.

It does not need to be updated on every release, so please do not flag out of date unless the build itself breaks or in case of an actual packaging issue.

If you are looking for the latest official release instead, see

for testing purpose, could you please remove webkitgtk2 from the PKGBUILD, perhaps completely or by changing it to webkit2gtk? I can't test it, since one of my packages requires webkitgtk2 [1].

However, the official guitarix2 PKGBUILD from the "extra" repository doesn't mention webkit at all, see my post at .

My guess is that migrating to webkit2gtk doesn't work, but likely removing webkitgtk2 is automatically noticed by the configuration check, to build without webkit.

It looks like webkitgtk2 is in AUR now

@Ralf_Mardorf: Thanks. I believe webkitgtk2 *might* be used only by the web interface, and according to the configuration file it is not listed as mandatory:

I cannot test right now, but you may be able to disable it by adding:
to the python2 waf configure options

It looks like the package webkitgtk2, dependency of this package, does not exist anymore.

@razer: I couldn't reproduce the issue, but you're right: that's more likely a typo that was in the pkgbuild for a while. Updated (thanks for the heads up).

Unable to build it today, bad source url :
git+git:// changed to git+https:// in source url to get it working

A fix was pushed upstream addressing the issue. Guitarix builds just fine now.

SpotlightKid commented on 2016-05-13 12:25

I get the same error. It's probably caused by the recent switch to GCC 6.1.

Gimmeapill commented on 2016-05-13 06:10

Ok guys, I got it (had to clean my own cache ;-)).
But still no clue about that gcc error, so I raised a question upstream:
