Please ensure that /usr/bin/scid should be executable by public (0755).

Also, the Shebang should be:

#!/usr/bin/env bash

Copied scid,scidlet,scid_vs_pc.desktop, and scid_vs_pc.install from 4.10 tar. Modified PKGBUILD

Thanks for the remarks. I will submit them to the devs, and apply temporary fixes to the PKGBUILD ASAP.

The ECO file still has problems after your fix because it gets overridden in options (and you probably have an options file that was generated by the original code). To fix it, fix scid/share/scid/share in the options file or delete .scidvspc and restart scid.

Combined with popsch's fix, this seems to resolve all the startup issues...

The installer has another bug. The font directory is not globally accessible ( -> execute bit is missing).

This fixes the problem:

sudo chmod go+x /usr/share/fonts/truetype/Scid/

After the installation, the default books and the ECO file cannot be found.

The following sed line fixes the books issue but not the ECO.

sed -i "s/\.\.\/share\/scid/../" ./tcl/config.tcl
