I have xorg-fonts-misc installed as I saw it as a possible solution on other sites.

Do you have xorg-fonts-misc installed? If that solves your issue I'll add it as a dependency.

The game is not starting:


Warning: Cannot convert string "--fixed-medium----15-------*" to type FontStruct

Warning: Unable to load any usable ISO8859 font

@teeahr1 what error message do you get when running as a normal user?

Have you tried running strace on it?

I can only launch the game as root. Anyone else having this problem?

Thanks, just filed the issue to the github. (I wasn't sure that X11 version is in the same repository, so didn't do that before.)

Have you tried filing a bug on their github? Additionally, if you can find an older release which doesn't have this bug, you can try using git bisect to find the offending commit.

Why sometimes h,j,k,l keys do not work? The keys just scroll the messages in the top pane. For example, when pressing ? key for help, then h, nothing happens; pressing ? then k scroll up the messages; but pressing ? key then a works.

Here's a WORK IN PROGRESS nethack-x11.patch and PKGBUILD that builds nethack 3.6.1 for X11, but without tiles, and it only runs as root, and then only the second time you run it. It's pretty horrible.

PKGBUILD: nethack-x11.patch: nethack.install:

Since I found viable forks of NetHack, I'm disowning this package.

Don't be eaten by a grue.
