You need to rebuild again to honor readline new version library

ACK. Adding python is enough, just tested.

@pfm: Do you refer to the error:

glib-genmarshal --body --prefix=psppire_marshal src/ui/gui/marshaller-list >> src/ui/gui/psppire-marshal.c
/usr/bin/env: ‘python3’: No such file or directory
make: *** [Makefile:12848: src/ui/gui/psppire-marshal.c] Error 127
make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....

Actually, adding python to makedepends seems to be enough.

I had to add python-virtualenv to makedepends in order to compile in a virtual environment. Reason: glib-genmarshal and other python scripts with env python3.

@alice4ever: Your definition is not totally correct. The depends array are for dependencies for both build AND run the binary, while makedepends is a dependency for ONLY building the binary. Therefore if the package is listed in depends array, one does not need to list in makedepends. Since 'spread-sheet-widget' is already in depends, no need for putting in makedepends.

See: and #makedepends section a little bit further.

@rafaelff: no, depends and makedepends are different.

makedepends are required to build the package.

depends are required to run the binary.

@alice4ever: 'spread-sheet-widget' is already in depends array, so it already satisfy makedepends. Adding it to makepdepends array changes anything..

Unable to build pspp, missing build dependencies: spread-sheet-widget.

Solution: spread-sheet widget has to be added as build dependency.

Hey, two suggestions about this package:

  • 'desktop-file-utils' can be omitted in the 'depends' array as 'gtksourceview3' already depends in it.
  • the .install file can be removed as pacman hooks already run those commands, see and check /usr/share/libalpm/hooks/
