The current version is broken, because it can't find python2-dbus

error: could not find all required packages:
    python2-dbus (wanted by: makehuman -> python2-pyqt4)

@ZauberParacelsus: CRLF where? In PKGBUILD file itself or in makehuman sources?

ZauberParacelsus commented on 2021-01-11 14:45

@3ED_0: That "working" PKGBUILD doesn't work. I get an error saying that it contains CRLF characters and that it "cannot be sourced"

Working 1.2.0 PKGBUILD:

@stativ: Please, upgrade... :)

Building fails for makehuman with the following errors:

I got the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):

Adding python2-sip-qt4 to the dependencies fixes the issue. Here is a patch:

Fortunately version 1.2.0 will fix these old dependencies. At least that's the plan. For now we have to deal with python2 and qt4. Apparently they're switching from mercurial to git too.


Unfortunately the stable version doesn't work properly with my GPU so I just made my own package with the latest Git version:

It works for me but it's not the ideal solution.
