I have been experiencing failures when trying to build arbtt 0.10, that seem to be related to the progress bar:

$ cabal install arbtt
[lots of warnings about package deprecations]

src/stats-main.hs:192:13: error:
    • Couldn't match expected type ‘Integer -> String’
                  with actual type ‘[Char]’
    • The function ‘mkProgressBar’ is applied to five arguments,
      but its type ‘Label -> Label -> Integer -> Progress -> [Char]’
      has only four
      In the second argument of ‘($)’, namely
           (msg "Processing data")
           (fromIntegral width)
           (fromIntegral b)
           (fromIntegral size)’

cabal: Error: some packages failed to install:
arbtt-0.10-AXw5Tg7ClsH7JPA9da7BvF failed during the building phase. The
exception was:
ExitFailure 1

I this this may be related to an upstream change in the progressbar package? I noticed a seemingly related bug in the bytestring-progress package: But I'm not sure which specific upstream package changed.

    It seems that terminal-progress-bar has changed its API, and I was sloppy about the version bounds. Try

    cabal install arbtt --constraint 'terminal-progress-bar < 0.2'

    Thanks. I just tried it again and the compilation made it through that step. It's now failing later, at an Graphics.X11.XScreenSaver issue. Can't dig into it now, but I'll open a new issue if I can't link it to some issue with my local configuration.

    Great thanks. It looks like the arch linux haskell-X11 isn't compiled with the proper support, but reinstalling it from cabal worked and now arbtt compiles fine. Thanks for the help!
