@vicnat It worked, thank you very much. Just add the alias x48 = 'x48 -connFont fixed'

vicnat commented on 2019-09-26 15:46


I have an alias in my .bashrc for x48 as follows: alias x48='x48 -connFont fixed'

Could you check what xorg-fonts packages are installed in your arch system? In mine I have these: xorg-fonts-100dpi xorg-fonts-cyrillic
xorg-fonts-type1 xorg-fonts-75dpi xorg-fonts-encodings
xorg-fonts-alias xorg-fonts-misc

Also you can found a work around for the helvetica connectionFont error in this link

@JM9 Thanks for the changes, x48 works again...

@vicnat Sorry for the flag without further detail, I thought my last comment was enough. I'll try to made best the next time ;-)

Sorry for the delay. I've updated the PKGBUILD with @vicnat's changes. If you get a font error at start up please use:

x48 -geometry +0+0 -xrm 'smallLabelFont: fixed' -xrm 'mediumLabelFont: fixed' -xrm 'largeLabelFont: fixed' -xrm 'connectionFont: fixed'

Hi all!

Matmoul is pretty bad that you have just flagged as out-of-date a package without give any information of your errors and obviously without check any comments before.

Anyway, please do as follows and you will get the x48 back in business.

cd /tmp git clone cd x48

Use vim and edit the PKBUILD file adding before make the following command: sed -i '698s/inline/static inline/' src/emulate.c

..... build() { aclocal autoheader automake --add-missing --copy -Wno-portability autoconf ./configure --prefix /usr sed -i '698s/inline/static inline/' src/emulate.c make bzcat gxrom.bz2 > gxrom bzcat sxrom.bz2 > sxrom

} ....

Then build and install the package with make -si.

Happy days.

why is this package ophaned? It works perfectly for me.

aurelieng commented on 2017-06-18 10:53

Thanks a lot, it works perfectly now. :)

Solution without having to create a patch:

If you are using pacaur or yaourt when you get the question if you want to edit or view the PKGBUILD, say yes and add the following line before the command make in the section build() in PKGBUILD file.

sed -i '698s/inline/static inline/' src/emulate.c

This will allow to compile and complete the installation.

I have tested and it works, of course you have to have installed sed.
