Thanx arnaud for the mods. I am relatively green at this. I'm sure it mostly has something to do with python2. Also, I have already added the other packages while messing around with my pkgbuild at home so I was on the right track anyway. I will modify the PKGBUILD and upload later today. Thanx again for the mod.

I don't know exactly what was wrong with your attempt.
On my side, I had it compiling / runnning by:
* ensuring avr-gcc, avr-libc and python2 are installed prior to compilation (makedepends)
* tweaking to make sure python2.7 is used (as python3 is now the default)

Hi everybody, I realize the package is out of date. As of 2.0.8 I am having trouble getting it to install from source so I have decided to hold off until 2.0.9 to see if it is any better. If 2.0.9 has the same problems I will take actions to contact somebody to try and get the issues resolved. If you want to try and install 2.0.8 you can edit the PKGBUILD. Just change any 2.0.7 with 2.0.8 and change the md5sums to 53d92d4531f935fcf2fdbbb909f95e4a. If you have any better luck than me please let me know. Thanx for your patience:-)

Ok mohag, I have added the packages you stated to the PKGBUILD makedepends. I do appreciate you giving your input. I tried to be as thourough as I could but I am not perfect and do make mistakes. Hope you enjoy!!

Ok, I have the makedepends you stated now part of the package. Also, note just today a new version of the compantion software is out. I really do appreciate you making a comment. It does help to know that people are using this package and what problems they may have. I have done my best to try and ensure a thorough package but I am not perfect. I am just happy people are using it.

Package is missing a build-time dependencies on python-pyqt4 and bc.

If packages are not present I'm getting "fatal error: 'bitmaps/splash_taranis.lbm' file not found"

avrj commented on 2014-06-18 11:23

Can't exec. no such file

avrj commented on 2014-06-18 08:20

Fails on build, can't find bitmaps.
