@Cromer: Could you fix the incompatibility of Pamac-classic with the latest version of Pacman 5.2?

Works thanks.

Cromer commented on 2019-09-17 22:21

@marcin19883 I pushed a new version 7.0.2 that should fix this problem.

@Cromer alright I just tried 7.0.1. It launches and the tray icon works properly as far as I can see, so from a user's perspective it can probably be considered "fixed", but on launch it still gives me the same assertion error:

(pamac-tray:5132): GLib-GIO-CRITICAL **: 17:07:31.413: g_file_new_for_path: assertion 'path != NULL' failed

And if I click on the tray icon, pamac-manager launches without any apparent hitch but it also outputs a similar error:

(pamac-manager:5195): GLib-GIO-CRITICAL **: 17:07:40.386: g_file_new_for_path: assertion 'path != NULL' failed

@Nocifer, I think I fixed it, could you please let me know if you still have trouble?

Hi again,

I've been getting the following error since the update to 7.0.0 when I try to run pamac-tray:

(pamac-tray:9786): GLib-GIO-CRITICAL **: 10:57:52.327: g_file_new_for_path: assertion 'path != NULL' failed

I'm running pamac in a KDE environment, using the KDE_TRAY=ON flag, but I've also tried without it and it still gives me the same error.

I just pushed 7.0.0, this has some big changes to the libpamc library, fixes old deprecated code, and removes cmake as a build system which means meson is now the only supported build system. Because of some of the major changes underneath, they break compatibility with 6.x.x library, so I bumped to 7.x.x.

Andy_Vetrov commented on 2019-07-06 07:02

Due to the fact that the @Cromer uses Meson as the main assembly system, I switched the PKGBUILD from Cmake to Meson:

pkgdesc="A Gtk3 frontend for libalpm. Classic version."
depends=('curl' 'libsoup' 'polkit' 'pacman' 'libnotify' 'vte3' 'gtk3')
makedepends=('vala' 'meson' 'gettext' 'gobject-introspection')
optdepends=('polkit-gnome: needed for authentication in Cinnamon, Gnome'
            'mate-polkit: needed for authentication in MATE'
            'lxsession: needed for authentication in Xfce, LXDE etc.')
conflicts=('pamac' 'pamac-aur')
provides=('pamac' 'pamac-aur')



build() {
  mkdir build
  meson --prefix=/usr \
        --libdir=/usr/lib \
        --sysconfdir=/etc \
        -DENABLE_UPDATE_ICON=false \
        -DENABLE_HAMBURGER=true \
        "${srcdir}/${pkgname}" build
  ninja -C build

package() {
  DESTDIR="${pkgdir}" ninja -C build install

The previous version 6.7.2 was compiled without any errors about the missed gir-file.

@Cromer: thanks for the great job!

P.S. In the latest version I found a small typo: in the Help - About menu displayed 6.7.2 instead 6.7.3.

Cromer commented on 2019-07-04 00:09

I just pusehd 6.7.3 which fixes the gir issue if using cmake. The gir issue didn't effect meson which is why I didn't notice it.
