The dependency gconf is not neccessary. Please remove it.

@lysergia yes it builds fine on my system without any issues.

Anyone able to get v3.1.0 to build & function properly?

I tried tweaking the package.json so that the electron builds complete, but I get no window when I try running it afterwards: https://github.com/evolus/pencil/pull/576/files

For now, whoever having the saving file issue can temporarily try my AUR package for development branch: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/evolus-pencil-devel-git/

Just for now. This AUR is still of better quality in the end.

I am unable to save any file. If I finish a drawing and hit save, the cursor goes to busy mode and never returns the control.

PNG export is broken. It hangs in between and doesn't export.

Requesting the developers to fix the above. Lot of my work has stopped.

@lysergia thank you. Just to be clear: it should be #branch=development, as said here https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/VCS_package_guidelines#VCS_sources

I'll follow the updates and comments in the evolus-pencil-git AUR page.

Sorry, I pretty much made sure that it didn't segfault, didn't test it more than that.

What I'd do is clone the evolus-pencil-git AUR package, edit the PKGBUILD so that the first SOURCE line reads like pencil::git+<https://github.com/evolus/pencil.git#branch=development>, and then run makepkg.

I made a comment on that aur package that it should be pulling from the development branch instead of master - otherwise it's no different from this package.

Edit: not sure why AUR is adding < & > signs to the source line above, but don't include those - just add ?branch=development to the end of what's already in the PKGBUILD.

Can someone please provide a -git version by taking the source code from the develop upstream branch? https://github.com/evolus/pencil/tree/development

It could be useful to get the latest developer updates, since the latest stable release is from 2017.
