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.

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

Thanks for the fix. Segfault is gone, but now 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.

Pushed a fixed PKGBUILD for v3.0.4, let me know if you have any issues.

Hardware acceleration disabled for Linux. Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Dear lysergia, I tried using pencil-git it is giving the same error. Will there be a peramanent fix soon on this?

The segfault issue is fixed upstream but currently unreleased. You can either switch to the pencil-git package until the next release is out, or add the following before the npm install line:

    npm i -s electron@"==1.8"
    cd app/
    npm i -s unzipper
    sed -i 's/unzip2/unzipper/' app.js
    cd ..

I'd push a new PKBUILD but I won't have access to my AUR SSH key until Saturday.

Since a recent upgrade (within the last month) I cannot start pencil anymore, it fails with the following message at startup:

Hardware acceleration disabled for Linux.
