Couldn't build falkon because missing generator

(tom) #1


i want to build falkon but the build breaks with this message:

[ 84%] Built target TabManager_autogen

the cause:

--generator-set=shiboken: command not found.

what for a generator? is this python related?

Hey tom, in case you haven’t resolved this yet, try installing the python-shiboken2 package.

pacman -Sii falkon shows falkon depends optionally on pyside2, which itself depends on python-shiboken2.

shiboken is installed but it doesn’t work

[tom@frija ~]$ pacman -Qs shiboken
local/python-shiboken2 5.12.3-1
    Generates bindings for C++ libraries using CPython source code
local/python3-shiboken 1.2.4-3
    Support library for Python3 bindings
local/shiboken 1.2.4-3
    CPython bindings generator for C++ libraries
local/shiboken2 5.12.3-1
    Generates bindings for C++ libraries using CPython source code

How about pyside2 which is the direct dependency?

(tom) #5

pyside2 is in the dependency array from the PKGBUILD.
i installed psyside2-tools, a opt. dependency from pyside2, and it doesn’t build

[tom@frija ~]$ pacman -Qs pyside2
local/pyside2 5.12.3-1
    Enables the use of Qt5 APIs in Python applications
local/pyside2-tools 5.12.3-1
    lupdate, rcc and uic tools for PySide2

edit: i give up
