This package is wacky, it builds on certain machines of mine, but doesn't on others of mine.

@bricewge: start from posting actual full log with wxgtk3.x , also check dmesg for anything segfaulting
Log from building perl-alien-wxwidgets is also important

Whole purpose of perl-alien-wxwidgets package is to selects used version of wxgtk (during its build)

atomsvote and Reded are right this package doesn't build if you don't mess around with the PKGBUILD.

If the tests failed, first recompile perl-alien-wxwidgets with wxgtk2.8, by uncommenting "HAX" in the PKGBUILD, and then compile perl-wx with it depends as wxgtk2.8 instead of wxgtk. Then it will compile and pass the test fine.

@dracorp can you fix this directly in the PKGBUILD?

Logs of the tests with wxgtk=3.0:

This package fails to build when is installed, even when adobe proprietary is also installed.

@atomsvote - Yes this worked, thanks!

I should add that in the perl-alien-wxwidgets PKGBUILD I also had to uncomment the section about building against wxgtk2.8 instead of 3, otherwise THAT package would fail to build too.

@atomsvote: these are only metadata, they do not directly affect the process of building.

• Still works fine on 3.x line
• Read README again, notice that it was made whole eons ago - last tested with perl 5.10!
• Provide logs

I have only minor issues (warnings) with archlinux repo's wxgtk and audacity not being compiled against 3.x (had to rebuild it manually - so now there is no wxgtk2.8 on my system, x86_64 to be exact)

Hi, I also had the failed test problem when building this package on a new clean distribution, the problem is related to wxgtk version:


wxgtk is now version 3.0.2-4(
but perl-wx is only tested wit wxgtk 2.8 or 2.9 (

So in order to build this you need to change wxgtk version to the follow:


You need to change this on this package and perl-alien-wxwidgets dependency

In order to build this you must need to remove wxgtk, install wxgtk2.8 and rebuild perl-alien-wxwidgets(don't forget to change the version of wxgtk), then rebuild this package.

@Reded can you confirm if this work for you ?

Thx swiftgeek, I forgot about this.
