@Mik: Seems upstream changed something about the erlang dependencies. Will look into this in the coming days. In the meantime you could use sonic-pi from [community].

The build fails on my side with "osc.erl: no such file or directory"? What is this ?

@nigeil/markallasread: Please use jack as dependency, as jack2 provides jack.

Also, feel free to try and incorporate some of the changes I introduced in the sonic-pi package in [community]. It offers a more integrated and de-vendored approach (WIP).

nigeil, I am interested in jumping in as a co-maintainer/taking ownership. New to AUR contribution, I will need to read up on the guidelines first. But I would like to get this package working to move forward in contribution to the sonic-pi installation on Arch.

like paum I also cannot build this package. Here is the error message:

==> Making package: sonic-pi-git v2.11.1.r573.g47821c6d7-1 (Di 27. Mär 19:26:12 CEST 2018) ==> Checking runtime dependencies... ==> Missing dependencies: -> qwt-qt5-opengl ==> Checking buildtime dependencies... ==> ERROR: Could not resolve all dependencies.

==> ERROR: An unknown error has occurred. Exiting...

I tried to install the qt5-tools-git package, but it also creates an error since manjaro needs the exisiting qt5-tools.

The sonic-pi package can be built, but doesnt work (sonic-pi splashscreen stays and nothing happens, rebuilding sonic-pi package doesn't help).

Could somebody help to get sonic-pi to work? wanted to create music with python :(

hi guys,
this script has some errors. can't be build.
any ideas ?

nigeil commented on 2017-06-03 13:07

Hi folks. I applied a patch from Simon Dreher, but I didn't test it successfully. Here's why:

New build scripts from upstream force you to install aubio from sources and install data from it into root+home directories, outside of fakeroot environment used by MAKEPKG. I STRONGLY recommend not using this package from the aur unless you know what this means for your arch install. I am marking it as out-of-date to grab attention to this issue, which I do not know how to fix.

If anyone feels like jumping on as a co-maintainer, or just taking the package from me, let me know! I don't use this package much anymore, but am happy to help.

hey @oxfn, check your ~/.sonic-pi/log/gui.log. If you see something like this:

[GUI] - unable to listen to UDP OSC messages on port 4558
[GUI] - Ruby server pid registered: 706
[GUI] - waiting for Sonic Pi Server to boot...

then 'netstat -nup' to find the PID of the Ruby process clogging that port 4558, where it's waiting to hear that scsynth has started and all that. If you kill that and sonic-pi and try again it'll start right up.

This issue crops up on the non-git AUR package too. I'm about to head over to github and open up an issue.

Getting the same error as the previous comment:

patching file build-ubuntu-app
Hunk #1 FAILED at 8.
1 out of 3 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file build-ubuntu-app.rej

However it works fine when building from the source directly:
cd app/gui/qt/

I've been trying to build this with no success. Process halts at:

I've dumped build-ubuntu-app.rej here:
