Python 3 support was added to the latest version (1.23). To build using python 2, add this before the qmake command:

export PYTHON=python2

To build using python 3 add:

export PYTHON=python3

Without any of the options above SciDAVis will be compiled against the default python version of the system.

Sometimes (most of the times, probably) the 'make install' step fails to install the SciDAVis translation files. You can add these lines into PKGBUILD after 'make install' command in order to have translations installed:

mkdir -p ${pkgdir}/usr/share/scidavis/translations
install -m 0644 scidavis/translations/*.qm ${pkgdir}/usr/share/scidavis/translations

Alternatively (not recommended) you can copy manually the desired .qm file (generated during the build process and stored at ${pkgname}-${pkgver}/scidavis/translations/) to /usr/share/scidavis/translations.

Notice: you may need to review the paths. I'm inferring them by analyzing the PKGBUILD.

The 1.19 release fix missing desktop integration files and icons in Linux packages. Then the "install desktop file and icon" step in the pkgbuild can be removed.

SciDAVis 1.18 has been released (some improvements/bug fixes since 1.17):
I believe that you will not need scidavis-qwt5.patch to build this version.

Best regards.

SciDAVis 1.17 has been released.
The patch "fix_wrong_values_on_parameters_errors.patch" is not necessary anymore.

By inspecting the PKGBUILD, I noticed that you are not enabling Python scripting and Origin import support. These are features that makes SciDAVis more useful and powerful. If you want to enable them, just add CONFIG+="liborigin python" to qmake:
qmake-qt4 CONFIG+="liborigin python"

Best regards.

Unfortunately there is no new version for SciDAVis.
That information about the last update may be due to anything modified in the SciDAVis page on (this is a "problem" in all project pages).
In order to check for new SciDAVis versions see:
