Hello, Using this PKGBUILD sends back a warning from CMAKE. Apparently, CMAKE should not be used without specifying a folder, as this will be removed and sends an error in the future. The opencpn doc recommends creating a build folder and building inside this folder. This is something I've done in the opencpn-git repo ( ).

I believe it's important to keep this in mind for the next update (IMO it's not urgent to change this now).

Good to know it worked for you, Npa. I've checked the list of explicit dependencies - and couldn't find webkit2gtk there. I didn't have to install webkit2gtk to compile, but it could be that it is an actual dependency. Would be interesting to know if anyone else had a similar problem or maybe it's your system specific.

I install it today and the build was OK so thanks again Ruppor. BUT : The build failed the first time and i have to install webkit2gtk to success. This package is not in the dependencies. Is it normal ?

ruppor, thank you, I can confirm its building and running on an i7 linux arch box. (Linux Z77 5.0.13-arch1-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Sun May 5 18:05:41 UTC 2019 x86_64 GNU/Linux)

I have incorporated the wxWidgets patch produced by software devs as described here:

Package builds fine on my machine, I've built it twice today. Hope this fixes issues for those whose builds were failing.

Hello, is there any chance of using this software in the coming weeks? I really use it to sail... Thanks

Builds are still broken on Arch package manager. Errors pop up at link time with problems related to wxwidgets. I have not figured out how to alter the build files when running the package manager.. Any chance the hindsholm patch mentioned below can be done on the repository so we can move forward? Thank you guys.

my failed build log is at

linking issues start at line 1242

Thanks to you Hindsholm but using this patch is above my skills for the moment (i dont know what to do...).

I got a lot of linker errors with wxWidgets, but they could be solved by the patch mentioned in this issue:
