I successfully compiled and installed the package via makepkg -si, but got the following error on running j9 -t:

"could not resolve: state_run:\n\nCannot load library /usr/lib/j9/bin/libjqt: (/usr/lib/j9/bin/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or direc

I looked through the compiler output and found this:

Project ERROR: Unknown module(s) in QT: webkit webkitwidgets

Installing qt5-webkit and rebuilding the package fixed the issue.

I encounter the following error when building with makepkg -si.

I guess this is avx2-related, but grep avx /proc/cpuinfo shows both avx and avx2 in the flags section, so I guess my cpu should support it. Any ideas?

Removed jcalc to avoid conflicts with j8-git

This PKGBUILD compiles j engine from source, which is available at The package provides both the j engine and the jqt ide, compiled from The package includes also the j system library and the jhs ide coming from Package version has the format where libver is the version of j system library Type JVERSION from jconsole or jqt to get all information about versioning Most package files are installed under /usr/lib/j9/ All front-ends (jconsole, jqt, jhs) can be launched with the bash script /usr/bin/j9 or using desktop shortcuts which are under /usr/share/applications/ The script /usr/bin/jcalc allows to execute a single j sentence form the command line The j user diretory is ~/.config/j9/, which is created at the first execution of j9 In j user directory, addons and system library are installed and updated for each user; this behaviour is driven by a dedicated j startup script profilex.ijs A j9hsd daemon is provided to run j as system-wide server, allowing all users to access jhs with a browser (http://localhost:65001/jijx):
