Hi yakshaver, the build system has been updated upstream. It's now using meson and ninja.

I have updated the PGKBUILD, could you try rebuilding this package and see if there's still a crash while running ?

yakshaver commented on 2018-03-28 07:39

I've been getting this with the latest versions:

even though

$ sudo find /usr | grep /usr/lib/

I think it might be because it is looking in /usr/local/lib for some reason.

Compiling issues should be resolved with the specified dependencies in latest PKGBUILD. Let me know if any problem remain.

Not working for me
:: resolving dependencies...
:: no results found for ndesk-dbus (dependency tree: sparkleshare-git ndesk-dbus)
:: no results found for ndesk-dbus-glib (dependency tree: sparkleshare-git ndesk-dbus-glib)

ndesk-dbus package has been renamed to dbus-sharp.
The PKGBUILD has been modified, tell me if it's not working for you.

Tyring to install this.
But can't find ndesk-dbus packages in official repo or aur. Am I missing something?

I have added the missing package to AUR (soup-sharp-git, webkitgtk-sharp-git and notify-sharp-git) and the commit version of SparkleShare is not locked anymore.

Tell me if it's not compiling for you with the latest SparkleShare commit.

Thanks for the updated PKGBUILD. I have included some of your changes in the new version.

The latest git version of SparkleShare needs the missing package webkitgtk-sharp>=3.0 (gtk-sharp-3 is already on AUR and notify-sharp 3.0 seems only to be a rename of version 0.4 but I'm not sure of it yet).

I have temporarily locked the commit in the PKGBUILD in order to compile with packages that are already available.
I will look for a way to build this package with the latest commit.

This PKGBUILD is trowing a compilation error:
configure: error: Package requirements (gtk-sharp-3.0 >= 2.99.1) were not met:

I belive that a major update to all the *sharp* things has to be done, some of which are in the community repo, such as notify-sharp. When I tried to compile the missing software, I eventualy ended up with errors from having older versions of other packages.

My knowledege of mono things is not much though, so, feel free to correct me :)

Thank you for your effort.

Note that ever since commit e0cd7b0 to pacman,
there's a much cleaner way to specify VCS sources.
Taking this into consideration, the following is a more up-to-date PKGBUILD:
