How did @jle64 run it with electron11?

@alfredo.ardito just install the electron11 package, then run "electron11 /usr/lib/pencil" or copy the /usr/bin/electron script somewhere in your PATH to take priority over the default and change electron to electron11 inside.

Same for me. It starts and stays on the blinking logo and nothing else.

I had to run it with electron11 instead of current version of electron, as otherwise it stays on the blinking logo screen at startup.

Don't know if it's just on my machine, but if someone has the same issue consider changing electron to electron11.

@BrLi working perfect now, thank you very much & sorry for not confirming earlier!

Sorry it seems all is working fine. My mistake. Thanks for the input!

@sastia, @sickcodes, it seems to be upstreamed, and should be fixed in devel branch, so I backported them, should work now, and with electron10(tm).

@Tio, the path to the icon is rather relative, you just need to put your icon theme into correct folder. further reading:

TL;DR, a) assume the icon theme is my_icon_theme, put it into your $HOME/.local/share/icons/ and it should work.

b) assume it is just a single png icon with size 128x128, put it into your $HOME/.local/share/icons/hicolor/128x128/apps/pencil.png

Can't save, installed devel branch instead until a patch is provided by maintainer

Can you please make the icon path as relative? We are making custom icons for Linux and we can't deal with these non-relative paths. Thanks!

Dear mantainer,

First of all thank you so much for your work! I have a problem with the program. All the options that save files doesn't seem to work. Save or export all do nothing. May be I'm doing something wrong? May be there is some dependency missing? The build of the program works smoothly and without errors.

@BrLi, I've added you as a co-maintainer. Feel free to update the PKGBUILD with your improved version.
