…Okay. After several more rebuilds I finally know what happened.
The actual culprit was wxgtk-common being incompatible with wxgtk2-dev and wxgtk3-dev.

To successfully build C::B on Arch, even if your system seems to refuse, you need to:
  • Choose and install an AUR helper; I, for the time being, prefer pacaur.
  • Remove WXW and C::B in their entirety:
    pacaur -Rsn wxgtk-common wxgtk2 wxgtk3 codeblocks
  • Compile the *-dev versions of WXW packages from AUR:
    pacaur -S wxgtk-common-dev wxgtk2-dev wxgtk3-dev
  • Compile an SVN C::B build from AUR:
    pacaur -S codeblocks-svn
Freshest versions of autoconf, automake, and m4 known to be working:
$ autoconf --version | head -1; automake --version | head -1; m4 --version | head -1
autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.69
automake (GNU automake) 1.16.1
m4 (GNU M4) 1.4.18

Thanks guys!
Now I`m finally able to use shortcuts on non-Latin layouts ^__^

I have not followed the whole thread, but it would be very nice, if you could write a little up to date, step by step tutorial how to build codeblocks on ARCH and put it in the wiki, or put it here and i will put it to the wiki...

Okay, I`m ready to help!
This is the article to be edited, I presume?
The problem is, in Arch there is actually no need to compile C::B from source anymore unless you want the latest features right now, e.g. like I do.
Can I change the name of the article to something more general, e.g. «Installing Code::Blocks on Arch Linux» to include the easy method of pacman -S codeblocks?

Sry, i was thinking you build from source.
You can make a new wiki page for installing, or update this. Any additional information and instruction is great!

This page is specifically for source installations. Using pacman isn't something worth documenting.
(most of the time I ignore long posts)
[strangers don't send me private messages, I'll ignore them; post a topic in the forum, but first read the rules!]

The article should be as follows:

Quote
Initial preparations

It is better to remove the old versions of both C::B and WXW before trying to build.
To do that, run Bash and paste this to the command prompt:
Code: [Select]
pkglist=""
for pkg in codeblocks wxgtk3 wxgtk2 wxgtk-common; do pkglist+="$(pacman -Qi $pkg | grep -i "^ *name *:" | cut -d: -f2-) "; done
[ -n "$(tr -d " " <<<"$pkglist")" ] && sudo pacman -Rsn $pkglist

Option 1. Building without an AUR wrapper

First, install the prerequisites:

Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -S curl zlib gcc-libs expat gtk2 gtk3 gst-plugins-base-libs libsm libxxf86vm libnotify valgrind bzip2 hicolor-icon-theme gamin hunspell webkit2gtk
Then, go to /tmp/ and build a development version of WXW and then an SVN revision of C::B:

Code: [Select]
cd /tmp/
root="https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/plain/PKGBUILD?h="
for pkg in wxgtk-common-dev wxgtk2-dev wxgtk3-dev codeblocks-svn; do rm -rf $pkg; mkdir $pkg; cd $pkg; curl -o PKGBUILD "$root$pkg"; makepkg --noconfirm; sudo pacman -U *.pkg.tar.xz || exit 1; cd ..; done

Done.

Option 2. Building with an AUR wrapper

Here I assume that the AUR wrapper installed on the target Arch machine is Pacaur.
If it`s not the case then please translate the given commands to your favourite wrapper`s format manually, it should be straightforward.

Build a development version of WXW and then an SVN revision of C::B:

Code: [Select]
pacaur -S wxgtk-common-dev wxgtk2-dev wxgtk3-dev codeblocks-svn
Done.
I`ll modify the article once I finish testing the first approach.
