How to run fsearch in clear linux?

git clone https://github.com/cboxdoerfer/fsearch.git
cd fsearch

android@clr~/fsearch $ ./autogen.sh
Copying file po/Makefile.in.in

Please add the files
  codeset.m4 gettext.m4 glibc21.m4 iconv.m4 isc-posix.m4 lcmessage.m4
  progtest.m4
from the /usr/share/aclocal directory to your autoconf macro directory
or directly to your aclocal.m4 file.
You will also need config.guess and config.sub, which you can get from
ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/config/.

swupd search intltoolize suggests adding the bundle intltool.

I don’t know how this relates to the other possible issues you might have there, but installing the intltool bundle might get you one step further.

android@clr~/fsearch $ sudo swupd bundle-add intltool

You’ll likely need c-basic, devpkg-glib, devpkg-gtk3 and possibly others. I was able to compile this myself without any major issues.

android@clr~ $ cd fsearch/
android@clr~/fsearch $ sudo swupd bundle-add c-basic devpkg-glib devpkg-gtk3

@nazar_s Though by no means foolproof, sometimes the only way to solve these kinds of problems is to read up on the required dependencies in the github README, and then search for each of them using the distro package manager. I have usually managed to get things compiled in this way, though it is a bit of a messy trial-and-error process. Of course if someone pipes up here who already knows that would save you some time.

devpkg-qtbase
qt-basic-dev
c-basic 
devpkg-glib 
devpkg-gtk3

These 2 are not used by fsearch at all.

I really don’t understand why this error occurs. perhaps it doesn’t like the newer version that clearlinux has. But, it works fine on my systems:

checking whether NLS is requested... yes
checking for intltool >= 0.50.1... 0.51.0 found

confirmed bug :roll_eyes:

We’ve identified the problem here. It turns out out intltool bundle was incomplete, causing the build failures. I’m currently fixing the issue and in the future, c-basic will provide a working intltoolize.

Until the fix has been deployed, you can sudo swupd bundle-add perl-basic-dev to continue your build. Re-run autogen.sh after and you should be good to go. (Tested and works)
