Here's my current situation: I need to install this annoying little app on Arch 64bits, but the odeskteam package one from the AUR repositories isn't working.
I've tried the following:
-- Installing from AUR with Yaourt. The installation outputs an error:
/tmp/yaourt-tmp-alainus/aur-odeskteam/./PKGBUILD: line 40: pkgextract.sh: command not found ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). Aborting...
-- Installing from AUR with Yaourt, and removing line #40 as suggested in comments:
/tmp/yaourt-tmp-alainus/aur-odeskteam/./tmp.sMpeyQoiTy: line 41: syntax error near unexpected token `}' /tmp/yaourt-tmp-alainus/aur-odeskteam/./tmp.sMpeyQoiTy: line 41: `}' ==> ERROR: Failed to source /tmp/yaourt-tmp-alainus/aur-odeskteam/./tmp.sMpeyQoiTy Unable to read PKGBUILD
-- Downloading the Arch Linux package from oDesk (here). The installation complains about qt not being present.
% sudo pacman -U odeskteam-3.2.57-arch-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz :( loading packages... resolving dependencies... warning: cannot resolve "qt", a dependency of "odeskteam" :: The following package cannot be upgraded due to unresolvable dependencies: odeskteam :: Do you want to skip the above package for this upgrade? [y/N] N error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies) :: odeskteam: requires qt
After doing sudo
pacman -S qt, which installs qt5, it still outputs the same.
-- Installing the windows version through wine. I cannot paste here the plethora of errors that wine gave me, until I definitely erased everything that had to do with wine for the rest of my life.
-- Installing it in another computer with Ubuntu 13.04, and trying to open it through SSH X11 Forwarding. The program opens on the other side, but locally throws an error: oDeskTeam Exited Abnormally.
Can anyone suggest another method for having this installed? I don't want to use a VM just to install a little 900KB app.
