@petronny: thanks for the lucene package. I will add the dependency when I will find a way to properly build the package

I have created a package called apache-lucene to fix the previous error.
Please add it as a dependency.
It can be compiled now, but still throws
[javac] /build/scilab-git/src/scilab/scilab/modules/xcos/src/java/org/scilab/modules/xcos/palette/ error: no suitable method found for open(IndexWriter,boolean)

No idea how to fix it...

I got this error,
checking gluegen2-rt... /usr/share/java/jogl/gluegen2-rt.jar
checking for Java_jogamp_common_jvm_JVMUtil_initialize in -lgluegen2-rt... yes
checking jhall... /usr/share/java/javahelp/jhall.jar
checking lucene-core... no
configure: error: Could not find or use the Java package/jar lucene-core used by Lucene (looking for package org.apache.lucene.LucenePackage)

But there is no package named lucene ,java-lucene etc.
Please fix it

java-commons-beanutils does not exist. Please update the PKGBUILD, if possible.

Scilab currently can't build with up to date jogl so you can use the following link to build jogl-2.1.5
Also there is problem with suitesparse (umfpack) so if you need to you can downgrade that package and remove --without-umfpack line from PKGBUILD.

Thank you, eolianoe! I used your fix for the PKGBUILD. Also I'll report a bug describing this.
In other news, I somehow missed gcc-fortran dependency earlier.

eolianoe commented on 2014-09-03 16:33

With the new version of suitesparse (umfpack) you need to add a prepare function to build:

prepare() {
cd ${srcdir}/scilab/scilab/
# Temporary fix for the new version of suitesparse (4.3.1).
sed -i "s/-lamd/-lamd -lsuitesparseconfig/g" configure
sed -i "s/umf_divcomplex/SuiteSparse_divcomplex/g" configure

By default pacman uses extra/beanshell2. The jar shipping with sources by developers is from, though. Can't say if it breaks something.

giniu commented on 2014-03-16 21:10

can it depend on beanshell2 from extra instead of bsh, or bsh is needed?

Can you add a desktop file?
Just add this to your PKGBUILD
install -Dm644 ${srcdir}/${pkgname}.desktop \
