Build breaks on make synfig.pot-update

Hi all :slight_smile:

Trying to build on Linux Mint KDE 17.3.

Cloned the git repository and called:

sudo ./autobuild/

The build broke, while checking for fftw3. Then I did:

sudo apt-get install fftw3 fftw3-dev pkg-config

and all went fine after that.

FTL built fine, but then I got:

Making all in po
make[2]: Entering directory /home/macetini/Development/source/synfig/synfig-core/po' make synfig.pot-update make[3]: Entering directory/home/macetini/Development/source/synfig/synfig-core/po’

make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/macetini/Development/source/synfig/synfig-core’

All Best,


I had this exact same problem and I was able to solve it by commenting out the line that requires the file …/src/synfig/filecontainertemporary.cpp

So in synfig/synfig-core/po/

I changed linee 213 - 214 from:


to this:



And I was able to compile after that :slight_smile:
