CoreCtrl doesn't want to start. In the terminal I get this errror:
corectrl: error while loading shared libraries: libbotan-2.so.15: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I started getting this error today when running it:
corectrl: error while loading shared libraries: libbotan-2.so.13: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
It looks like corectrl depends on botan 2.13, but the botan package is on 2.15.
So it search for botan 2.15 and we are on 2.16.0-2
Thanks for the prompt reply Is there something I can do to fix this?
A rebuild should work. I just installed corectrl on vanilla Arch with no issues.
Alright, this would be the first time ever I build something. How can I do this? * Nervous *
pamac build corectl
it will ask you to install needed dependencies to install, then build the package
Just do a reinstall, you should be all set.
yay -S corectrl --rebuild
Not for me Same error.
Thats what AUR helpers do, making using AUR easy
Since it consists mainly of PKGBUILDS these helpers can easily build the package, instructions are in there already
Side effect of this is getting broken packages once in a while if the maintainer doesnt update the PKGBUILD, resulting in errors like the one above.
Oops, I posted above before I had my coffee . I was thinking "rebuild" but I confused it with "clean build." I corrected the post. Apologies!
yay -S corectrl --rebuild
Is there a difference between four and two dashes (
Yes, the difference is caffeine addiction and its side effects.
Again, corrected, and again, apologies!
I reduce to two but same error. I got crazy
Rebuilt and bumped pkgrel now its in repo
sudo pacman -Syu
@dr460nf1r3 Method worked, so I market it as the solution,
sudo pacman -Syu works too, apparently. Does it make a difference? Will I have to remove/change something so things don't "conflict" with each other?
EDIT: got this output from the console, though:
error: command failed to execute correctly (6/8) Orphaned package notification extra-cmake-modules 5.75.0-1 (7/8) Checking for .pacnew and .pacsave files... .pac* files found: /etc/default/grub-btrfs/config.pacnew /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist.pacnew Please check and merge (8/8) Updating the desktop file MIME type cache...
I think it work since @librewish bumped the pkgrel
Now it work for me again.
Sorry, but I don't speak Greek... care to dumb it down for me?
EDIT: like, what does "bumping a pkgrel" mean?
Ah, I see, apparently Garuda gets this package from the Chaotic-AUR. librewish is one of the maintainers of that repo.
