Is necessary before install or update the ncl package, reinstall/rebuild these packages: g2clib, triangle, udunits, hdf4 (>=4.2.14-4). If everything went well in the build, it generates the binary /usr/bin/ncl. For fresh install run 'source /etc/profile' or relogin.

after the update the ncl executable is missing again ! :/

Fix build without Vis5d+ (now this is not necessary as dependency)

i can confirm the missing 'ncl' executable on my machine.
i've recompiled in a log file but there's not much to it:

Makefile:699: recipe for target 'ncl' failed
make[4]: *** [ncl] Error 1

i've send you the log file!

Hi @archuser2
if the build no provide the executable /usr/bin/ncl is because the compilation phase has errors. For me, the packages compile good, please donwload the files and compile manually the PKGBUILD but first edit the PKGBUILD change line:

make Build
make Build >> log 2>&1

search the log file in the source and send my the log file.

My recent (x86_64) builds of this package do not provide /usr/bin/ncl or place any "ncl" executable in the system path. Is this expected behaviour? How should one call ncl scripts without these?

It works!

Thanks a lot

yes, sorry, the file is corrupt, please try again.

Thank you epsilon for the quick response.
Unfortunately, I don't know whether I am doing something wrong or the tar.gz file is corrupted:

ncl_ncarg-6.1.2/ni/src/examples/data/cdf/contour.cdf: truncated gzip input
bsdtar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.
