If you encounter the error cp: target '$HOME/.cache/yay/omnetpp/pkg/omnetpp/opt/omnetpp' is not a directory, you need to change the PKGBUILD file. Move line 71 to 78.

It should be like this:

install -d ${pkgdir}/opt/omnetpp
cp -R samples/* ${pkgdir}/opt/omnetpp
cp -R ide ${pkgdir}/opt/omnetpp

I encountered some problems with this package. For instance several files and directories (, images/, ...) were not included in the package.

Here's a version that works for me:

To verify the installation, this is what I do:

cp -r /opt/omnetpp/samples/tictoc .
cd tictoc

Hi, the blt dependency is no longer needed since OMNeT++ 4.5 (June 2014). See here:

It would be great to add some more dependencies. In my case the build failes because of:

configure: error: Cannot find osgEarth. At least the development version of libosgearth and the openscenegraph-plugin-osgearth package is required.

You need to use the correct referer to download the archive.
e.g. to download omnetpp5.1:

wget --referer

However i don't know how to pass this referer to yaourt

edit: you can add a .curlrc file to your home folder and insert the line


its a bit hacky, but it will work

The validity check fails because the download aborts early. I am not sure why, downloading it in a webbrowser succeeds but I didn't manage to get the file using either wget or curl.

The downloaded file omnetpp-5.0-src.tgz fails the validity check.

Download link at PKBUILD doesn't download the omnetpp source file. "qt4" needs to be added to makedeps.
