@haawda, thank you for testing, but I currently think the right thing to do is to get community/python-wxpython downgraded.

Getting some warnings from CMake:

CMake Warning:
  Manually-specified variables were not used by the project:


These have been removed and ON by default. See this post on the mailing list.

Hey, can you add -G Ninja to the cmake options and then change make to cmake --build . then the make install line can become DESTDIR="${pkgdir}" cmake --build . -- install

makes the build go brrr

I needed to use wxgtk3-dev from AUR instead of WXGTK3 and the fowllowing patch to build.

@Nick for the Problem that Knapik talked about, i had the same Problem with the kicad-nightly package and DX-Mon said to me that i had to downgrade the wxPython Package to Version Here the Link to the Package.

@kanpik, perhaps it helps you.

@knapik For some reason python-wxpython-4.1.1-1 reports 3.1.5 as the wxWidgets_version

Python 3.9.5 (default, May 12 2021, 17:14:51) 
[GCC 10.2.0] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import wx
>>> wx.wxWidgets_version
'wxWidgets 3.1.5'

Adding wxWidgets_version = 'wxWidgets 3.0.5' to the end of /usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/wx/ made it (start to) build, but this is obviously not a good solution. :)

@colejohnson66, this is fixed with an update to ngspice 34-2.

nickoe commented on 2021-04-27 20:49

@knapik I am not sure what you are talking about. I don't see any issues with kicad and wx, using extra/wxgtk3

@colejohnson66 I think this is a packaging bug in ngspice-34. You can by pass it by disabling NGSPICE in the cmake config temporarely.

colejohnson66 commented on 2021-04-27 17:21

The configure script is failing with an error about ngspice:

*** NGSPICE library missing ***
Most of ngspice packages do not provide the required libngspice library.
You can either compile ngspice configured with --with-ngshared parameter
or run a script that does the job for you:
  cd ./scripting/build_tools
  chmod +x
  sudo ./ install

No longer compiles for me. The nightly builds are now dependent the latest development release of wxWidgets (3.15) and not the stable release.

Still, trying to use wxgtk3-dev and wxgtk-common-dev instead of the stable packages, I can't compile to do errors due to a bunch of missing or wrong OpenGL types? I haven't figured out how to get it to compile yet.
