If I run meson -v it reports back as 0.44.

cxf@PC:~$ meson -v
cxf@PC:~$ which meson

I think I did something when compiling DXVK on 17.04/17.10/18.04 but I can't remember what. I upgraded to 18.10 from 18.04. How can I fix this?

    Uninstall meson with apt and use meson from pip3. – mja Nov 25 '18 at 9:39
  • That doesn't solve anything and it still returns 0.44. Ubuntu 18.10's repo has meson 0.47 so that ain't the problem. – Ubuntuthrow Nov 25 '18 at 21:32
  • Give me dpkg -l '*meson*' output? – mja Nov 26 '18 at 3:19
  • `` dpkg -l 'meson' Desired=Unknown/Install/Remove/Purge/Hold | Status=Not/Inst/Conf-files/Unpacked/halF-conf/Half-inst/trig-aWait/Trig-pend |/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad) ||/ Name Version Architecture Description +++-================-=============-=============-====================================== un meson <none> <none> (no description available) `` – Ubuntuthrow Nov 27 '18 at 0:44
  • It's weird! dpkg claimed that meson is uninstalled. Why would you have meson v0.44.0? – mja Nov 27 '18 at 0:57

Installing meson via pip3 install meson and rebooting gives me meson 0.48.2. Still no clue why it was reporting 0.44 when the apt version (0.47) was installed.
