Oh ok, I guess gksu-polkit-git can also be used instead

gksu was obsoleted by gnome some time ago (and it had no contribution since 2011 or so). It should be replaced with polkit support (read wiki page "Running applications as root"). The gksu package was removed from arch repos 1-2 years ago.

On the other hand, this package can provide a '.rules' file as a measure to support root priviliges instead of gksu. I will look at weekend.

It should have gksu as an optional dependency, this or gnomesu is used when you try to open a device without permission

@mxfm, you're welcome.

@dario, thanks. PKGBUILD was updated to use wxgtk3. In addition, python was added to makedepends as some components seems to regure it during compilation. When doing building in clean chroot, I had "configure: error: Python was not found".

This PKGBUILD works for me with GTK3:

# Maintainer: Steven Honeyman <stevenhoneyman at gmail com>

pkgdesc="A free hex editor / disk editor for Linux, Windows and MacOSX"
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')

build() {
    cd "$srcdir/wxHexEditor-$pkgver"
    make WXCONFIG="/usr/bin/wx-config-gtk3"

package() {
    cd "$srcdir/wxHexEditor-$pkgver"
    make WXCONFIG="/usr/bin/wx-config-gtk3" DESTDIR="$pkgdir" PREFIX="/usr" install

The package does successfully build with GTK3. In the PKGBUILD just replace "makedepends=('wxgtk')" with "depends=('wxgtk3')" and "make" inside build() with "make WXCONFIG=/usr/bin/wx-config-gtk3". Perhaps there is a leaner way to do it, but I see no reason not to use the latest GTK. commented on 2019-04-17 11:03

@mxfm: can confirm, had to install package wxgtk2 manually, because wxhexeditor did not start. Error was:

wxHexEditor: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

mxfm commented on 2019-03-09 19:58

It seems it needs wxgtks2, not wxgtk3 as depends.
