Please change "Exec=/usr/bin/powder-toy" to "Exec=powder-toy"

It doesn't allow for wrapper scripts

Hello, please rename the tarball so it doesn't cause conflicts for common source directories. Thank you.

Change PKGBUILD version to 93.3 Change the first MD5 to 16c5751f9b9c7a6283f423365fe73b1a (The-Powder-Toy-93.3.tar.gz)

Do this changes in your PKGBUILD for updating the software

Seems to be an upstream issue; downgrading scons from 3.0.0 to 2.5.1 fixed it.
I'll file a bug report upstream.
EDIT: it's now fixed upstream.

When building (with pacaur), I get a build failure:

-> building powder with options with following extra flags --64bit --sse3
scons: Reading SConscript files ...
File "/root/.cache/pacaur/powder-toy/src/The-Powder-Toy-92.0.331/SConstruct", line 12

print "couldn't remove .sconf_temp/"


SyntaxError: Missing parentheses in call to 'print'

@Alfred456654 thanks! I have updated the PKGBUILD to the official repo.

I just noticed that the repo in the PKGBUILD isn't the "official" repo:
The one in the PKGBUILD is
The official one is

In the PKGBUILD, it changes several things:
- the source URL on line 25;
- the name of the archive on lines 29, 39 and 68 (s/mod1-//g);
- the md5 sum of the archive on line 73;
- the version number:
* _sver=92
* _mver=0
* _build=331
