I try to compile Simon Voice Recognition Software version 0.4.90 from source on Arch Linux with KDE Plasma.

Source was obtained using git clone git://anongit.kde.org/simon simonsource When I execute ./build.sh (or make in build directory, build just calls it), I get following error:

[ 70%] Linking CXX shared module ../../../lib/simonatspicommandplugin.so
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lQt5::Core
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lQt5::Widgets
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lQt5::DBus
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [plugins/Commands/ATSPI/CMakeFiles/simonatspicommandplugin.dir/build.make:144: lib/simonatspicommandplugin.so] Error 1
make[1]: *** [CMakeFiles/Makefile2:6429: plugins/Commands/ATSPI/CMakeFiles/simonatspicommandplugin.dir/all] Error 2
make: *** [Makefile:163: all] Error 2

I installed whole qt5 group from Arch repositories, also cxxtools from AUR, but to no avail.

linker version:

GNU ld (GNU Binutils) 2.30

gcc version:

Thank you

  • There is a PKGBUILD in the AUR, use that... – jasonwryan Jul 31 '18 at 22:25
  • simon from AUR doesn't work, fails on syntax error – Michal Polovka Jul 31 '18 at 22:53
  • The maintainer is a competent developer, so either leave a note on the AUR page, or edit your question to include the syntax error. – jasonwryan Jul 31 '18 at 23:08
  • The developer supposedly abandoned project year ago – Michal Polovka Aug 1 '18 at 1:27
