    I was made aware that the latest version of gambas3 is missing the templates component. Although the templates package is not available from the arch repositories, the latest version is available as a ubuntu package.

    I've repackaged the ubuntu package as gambas3-templates-3.8.4-2 and it is now available via the bluestar repository as an arch package for anyone who needs it.

    To install:

    Code: [Select]
    pacman -S gambas3-templates

    xx Package Updates
    February 01, 2016, 03:25:40 PM by admin
    I'm sure some of you have noticed you can no longer perform system updates. This is due to a pacman update to v5.0 - that broke several packages with dependencies on pacman v4.x. Unfortunately, the update took the dependent package maintainers off-guard and I've had to make some temporary package builds until official versions are available.

    The following packages have been updated:

    package-query
    - the dependency on pacman<4.3 was simply removed

    kalu
    kalu-kde
    -had to pull the pacman-5 branch of the source code from github and rework the PKGBUILD file. The official AUR release should be available soon - the package maintainer knows about the issue, but wasn't yet ready to officially release the source code.

    pacaur
    - was updated by the package maintainer

    cower
    - had to pull the latest source code from its github site.

    Make sure that all package dbs are updated using pacman -Syyu and your system update should now go off without a hitch.

    Cheers

    xx Update - bslx-plasma-artwork
    February 01, 2016, 03:23:10 PM by admin
    I've removed bslx-plasma-artwork from the bluestar repository (so your updates will stop annoying you with whether or not you want to replace bslx-artwork), and have added a new repository db named bluestar-plasma. If, and only if, you're running plasma5, add the following to your /etc/pacman.conf file:

    Code: [Select]
    [bluestar-plasma]
    SigLevel = Optional TrustAll
    Server = http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/bluestarlinux/repo/$arch

    I want to emphasize that you should not add this db entry unless you are running plasma5 (or add it and comment it out for future use).

    If you are running plasma4 and have mistakenly replaced bslx-artwork with bslx-plasma-artwork, you're going to find yourself unable to perform system updates due to plasma5 dependencies. To fix this, simply uninstall bslx-plasma-artwork and reinstall bslx-artwork.

    Cheers

    xx FYI - chromium-widevine
    February 01, 2016, 03:20:47 PM by admin
    FYI - chromium-widevine is now incorporated into chromium v48. If you run into a conflict when installing the latest version of chromium, remove the chromium-widevine package first

    Code: [Select]
    pacman -R chromium-widevine
    I'll be removing chromium-widevine from the bluestar repository.

    Cheers

    xx Developer Version Update
    December 25, 2015, 11:14:40 AM by admin
    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone.

    I'm putting together a fixed developer build using some mad Linux skilz that includes full updates, fixed installers and a plasma4 environment. It will be dated 12/25 and I'll start the upload by the 26th (it takes about 4 days to upload). I've tested the 64-bit version already and will finish up the 32-bit version during the day.

    Also, I'll be updating the bslx-plasma-artwork package with more appropriate dependencies so that it stops pestering everyone about replacing bslx-artwork. Do not perform this installation if you're still running plasma4 - bslx-artwork is targeted to plasma4, bslx-plasma-artwork is targeted to plasma5. If you install bslx-plasma-artwork to plasma4, you'll lose the splash screens due to a plasma4/5 splash incompatibility.

    Cheers

    xx Plasma5 Issue with Nouveau
    December 23, 2015, 11:54:30 PM by admin
    Just a heads-up that plasma5 does not play nice with the nouveau graphics driver - it is, apparently, a known issue. In my case, the nvidia-304xx driver also doesn;t play nice with my Nvidia GeForce 7150M/nForce 630M hardware, so I had to perform a reinstall/downgrade to plasma4 using my current deskpro release.
    Be aware that there are some issues with plasma5, and be careful to back up anything you would need to downgrade (like your home directory, /etc, $HOME/.kde4, etc.).

    I'll look into what it might take to build out the full suite of plasma4 packages which appear to be available via the AUR - for those who aren't having much luck with plasma5.

    Cheers.
