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It does not need to be updated on every release, so please do not flag out of date unless the build itself breaks or in case of an actual packaging issue.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

Building on x86_64 fails with either yaourt or makepkg.

The only thing unusual for my install is

$ pacman -Q jack2
jack2 1.9.10.r177.g7bdad49-1
$ jackd --version
jackdmp 1.9.11

Official repositories provide

$ pacman -Si jack2 | grep Version
Version : 1.9.10-4

I get the same error as Ralf_Mardorf. System is up to date, using default flags, clean cache.

@Ralf_Mardorf: cannot reproduce here. Is your system up to date? Did you cleanup the cache & are you using any exotic build flags?

@Ralf_Mardorf: Dependency on ttf-roboto removed...and replaced by the bundled one as suggested by the build script. It's ugly but at least won't depend on another AUR package. It should still build if you disable it completely though (see line 38 of the pkgbuild).

Gimmeapill commented on 2016-02-06 21:12

@Ralf_Mardorf: please direct your UI design recommendations here:

As for the pkgbuild, feel free to edit it to your needs or use the official one. In it's current shape, including the recommended font does improve user experience, and is therefore more likely to reduce the number of complaints about the UI. I'd be more concerned with the dependency on bluez-libs if I had to go nitpicking...I'll review those and the build flags after the new version is released.

Ralf_Mardorf commented on 2016-02-06 20:11

It's nothing new, already 0.34.0.r76.g8d2a959 recommended to install the font. However, the guitarix UI is per se a PITA, I don't see how a font, that deviates from the chosen WM font, would improve anything, it's the other way around. A user does chose the font that fit to the user's needs, if an app decides to use it's own font, for no good reason, it breaks a sane work-flow. Why not making the font by default an optional dependency? What is the reason to make it a hard dependency?

Gimmeapill commented on 2016-02-06 19:08

@Ralf_Mardorf: to fix a build warning - that was brought in by the new UI. It will still build and run fine for now, but may look ugly. If you want to test and report on the new UI, better have it.

Ralf_Mardorf commented on 2016-02-06 14:51

The latest version still builds and runs without ttf-roboto. Is there a good reason that by default the PKGBUILD makes the font a hard dependency?

I made it an optional dependency and couldn't notice anything bad.
