It looks like upstream has stopped updating kalu, with the last commit over two years ago, on June 2018. I previously patched this package to work as per this issue, but I can't get it to build any more:

/usr/bin/ld: src/kalu/kalu-conf.o:/tmp/kalu-kde/src/kalu-4.3.0/src/kalu/kalu.h:137: multiple definition of `tpl_names'; src/kalu/kalu-main.o:/tmp/kalu-kde/src/kalu-4.3.0/src/kalu/kalu.h:137: first defined here

If anyone has a patch, I'm happy to add it. Please let me know.

Please also note that this AUR package is not out of date. It is consistent with upstream, although there are obviously ongoing issues with upstream's code.

@ZaZam Because upstream hasn't released a new version yet.

@jghodd This package is not out of date. The PKGBUILD version is identical with upstream. True, it doesn't work with the current version of pacman, but that relates to upstream, not this PKGBUILD. You can follow the bug report here [a].

In any case, I've temporarily added the patch that makes kalu(-kde) compatible in the meantime, until upstream updates.

Why does this depend on pacman version lower than 5.2?

@pcmoore I'm not really sure, because I don't use that part of it. Perhaps you could report it upstream? I'd probably test with vanilla kalu too, so it's simpler for upstream to find the bug.

Thanks for the update, but I'm having problem when running the graphical updater application:

Error: Could not initiate kalu_updater: Error calling StartServiceByName for org.jjk.kalu: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ChildExited: Launch helper exited with unknown return code 127

Help?

@lpc123 Thank you, but I'm afraid you'll have to be more specific. What exactly is the problem?

lpc123 commented on 2018-06-05 21:26

I appreciate the work on this package, but sorry, no luck here with installing 4.3.0-1.

Thanks @jghodd. I've pinned your comment.

@Rhinoceros - it seems to be "working" ok with a rebuild, but the progress indicators are showing "-2147483648% of 0 B" during downloads. definitely something needs to be fixed.

I realise that this package is currently pinned to pacman<5.1, so it's blocking pacman -Syu. However, upstream hasn't addressed this yet. I'll update this package when upstream has a response. In the meantime, I manually removed the restriction from the PKGBUILD, then rebuilt, and it seems to work okay. I won't commit the change yet until I see what upstream does.
