The easiest way to solve build failures is by building in a clean chroot. Else make sure with archlinux-java status that you are not using an old Java version. To use the latest Java varsion, run archlinux-java set java-14-openjdk.

No, thank you for taking the time to maintain the package. All seems to be working well, nice work.

Thanks for the ping @thegovernor !

The package was also out-of-date. It is now updated to the latest 1.5.2.

The package checksums seem to be out of date.

yay output:

Validating source files with sha256sums... tuxguitar-1.5.1-src.tar.gz ... FAILED

If possible, please update the package. Thank you.

Thank you very much for the explanation.

I've just installed the package, but adjusted a few things beforehand in the PKGBUILD: - exchanged gtk2 with gtk3 - updated to tuxguitar 1.5.1 - added conflicts + provides to let pacman react correctly, if the other tuxguitar package is installed

Patchfile with these changes:

Thank you for pointing out the dependency issue. I apologize for this. As for the differences between this and the main tuxguitar package (which used to be in the community repository, mind you), is that it doesn't set tuxguitar to use GTK 2. The tuxguitar binary uses GTK 3 by default, but due to an issue that was a problem way back in time, GTK 2 was used instead using a variable in a shell script that exists in /usr/bin as 'tuxguitar'. The package continued this behavior beyond its necessity, and so because I got sick of manually changing this behavior with every update, I decided to create an AUR package, and yes, I used the same PKGBUILD as a base. I need to change the GTK dependency for sure, but the actual difference is in the launcher shell script that is called when running 'tuxguitar'. I hope this cleared things up, and hopefully I can have the package updated by tomorrow to correct the dependencies.

Shouldn't the package depend on gtk3 instead of gtk2?

What's the difference to the other tuxguitar package here on AUR? The PKGBUILDs of both don't have any significant differences.

@Enelar: Seems like you are using "jre8-openjdk" as JRE, so you need "jdk8-openjdk" to successfully build the tuxguitar package.

Tuxguitar works with many Java versions, so you need to make sure, your using the same version for JRE and JDK when creating the package.

Wrong dependencies - i instailed adviced 10, and it wont built. Update package please

The 1.5.1 is out, I hope that fix the problem. It build fine with java-10-openjdk on my machine.
