Sorry for the confusion. The git describe output matches the version presented inside KiCAD and according to the source provided is how the internal version is set.

The sed expression is simply to replace the two '-' characters by something allowed in Arch versions. Most popular seems to be to do a tr '-' '.', but not all packages follow this (inkscape-git for example). I suppose my preference for a tilde to separate the build number from the semver is a bit of a Debian-ism. It's just a suggestion, no more.

@StefanH What offical way?

Why do you want a tilde and dot?

Hi Nick! Could you update the pkgver function to:

git describe | sed -r 's/([^-]+)-([^-]+)-([^-]+)/\1~\2.\3/'

as per the official way to get the latest version? The sed command I added to translate the dashes to something fitting the Arch version string format. Source:

@firewalker, this is a strange error. This is not an issue for me, and I also tried to update my system.

First off it looks like there is some issue with it finding wxpython 3.0.2 instead of 4.0.7. Is your default python python2?

Hi Salamandar,

In such case, should not libjpeg-turbo be added as a dependency in libfreeimage?

Salamandar commented on 2020-05-26 07:56

Hi, could you add the dependency libjpeg-turbo ? Without it, I get /usr/bin/ld : /usr/lib/ : undefined reference to « jpeg_read_icc_profile@LIBJPEG_8.0 »

as KiCad moved from launchpad to GitLab, the source should be: git+

Does anybody has a clue why it is not building and how to investigate this?

@balajiTn, it does not look like you have the real error there. Maybe post the complete output in a pastebin?
