And as there are no ELF executables in this package, arch should be set to 'any'.

Just a few remarks: you should use a package function when accessing $pkgdir. And you should quote all instances of $srcdir and $pkgdir to allow for spaces in directory names. And you shouldn't use $startdir anymore, just use "$srcdir/pencil". And you really set the right permissions. For instance, text files and pencil.desktop shouldn't be made executable and the world executable bit should be set for all directories. And as you are registering MIME types, you should call `update-desktop-database -q` in an install file.

I edited your PKGBUILD and created an install file:

For me, some icons for the Sketchy GUI are missing.

See this screenshot:

Can anyone confirm this?

Thaks @orschiro! it works, only change any GTK theme different to Oxygen-gtk

orschiro commented on 2013-11-20 23:11


I guess you are right. Set the GTK2 theme to Adwaita.

Hi @orschiro

yes I have firefox and works fine, actually I use KDE, maybe are there any compatibility problem with KDE?

orschiro commented on 2013-11-20 23:00


I cannot reproduce this. Does firefox itself work?

when I clicked any menu, the program crashed saying:

###!!! ABORT: X_CreatePixmap: BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation); 4 requests ago: file /build/firefox/src/mozilla-release/toolkit/xre/nsX11ErrorHandler.cpp, line 157

I can only agree. Thanks for pointing me to russo79's PKGBUILD. This is much cleaner.


Can you please update your PKGBUILD and make pencil depending on xulrunner?

I vote for the PKGBUILD version of russo79. It is more logical to depends on xulrunner for an independant application than depends on firefox. In that last case, users will probably directly install the extension version available on the evolus website.

BTW, I purpose to replace the arch array with arch = ("any") as this package is architecture independant. I purpose to put it in the editor or office category rather than x11 one, which is more useful to describe low-level interface library.
