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.
zsh: segmentation fault (core dumped)  pencil

it stays at

'>node install.js

and after many minutes:

you probably need to recompile (relink to be exact) with the new libs (icui18n, ...)...

"node: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory" why?

richardm commented on 2017-11-17 15:35

not working at all on my side... requiring 7zip for Windows (...)
