Hello besc, sorry I didn't respond in time, but I see you already did the hard work. I'll request merge of this package into yours. And thank you for your work on photivo!

There’s a photivo-git package now that works with the new Git repository.

Note that in contrast to the old photivo-hg the new package does not build the Photivo-to-Gimp plugin (ptGimp) anymore. Since Gimp 2.10 the plugin is not necessary anymore.

The migration to Git is done. To clone run:

git clone

The build process stayed the same. Except Hg->Git no changes should be necessary in the PKGBUILD.

I’m one of the old maintainers of Photivo (Brother John).

Bitbucket is about to abandon Mercurial support. We’ll stay on Bitbucket and migrate the repos to Git on 4 April 2020. See the announcement on the website

@stativ Would you be willing to migrate the AUR package? If not I’ll step in.

Works fine for me. Maybe it was fixed by some gimp update in the meantime.

on my latest updated archlinux and gimp 2.10.0, report:

Can I just ignore the gimp plugin making? I had looked in the building temp directory but not found anything can be custimized.

Fixed. I didn't realize that Qt5 is already supported and it compiles fine with Qt 5.

Unable to build. Log form makepkg:

I don't see a reason why delete a package that works perfectly fine.

Also, the package is not out-of-date and the repository it uses is the repository owned by the original author of photivo, so I guess it is as official as it could be.

timofonic commented on 2017-07-26 04:26

There's another repo, not sure if official...

"Used to be a fan of photivo, but development seems to have stalled in
2015. The gimp plugin stopped working for me. There are other tools,
RawTherapapee for example. If you have photivo from the dhor/myway PPA
it is there for installation."

Why keeping this abandoned software if there's an alternative like RawTherapee? I suggest to delete it.
