Queenmedley was right: there are no images showed in "choose a sprite".

This is the same for "choose a background" (no images) and for "choose a sound" (no sound except the cat's one).

Proposal to fix this issue (package size will grow 113.6MB to 172.6MB but works for me), to make this work, I had to rename the downloaded file scratch3 to The installed file will still be named "scratch3":

< depends=(electron)
> depends=(electron11)
<         "$pkgname"
>         "$"
< 'd9dd01d52f91ded4ef033dcd22ed97e7bf3a2afc64b28b5c2d36efd095897953f0d93b7e5ec98905b970f99da2fa57b88e56e01cad54eec13af98e4786cb5bc7'

<       7za x -bd -y "Scratch%20$pkgver%20Setup.exe" resources/
>       7za x -aoa -y "Scratch%20$pkgver%20Setup.exe" resources/ -o$pkgname/
<       chmod 755 resources/{,static/{,assets/}}
>       chmod 755 $pkgname/resources/{,static/{,assets/}}
>       # We don't need windows/dos file executables, remove them.
>       find $pkgname/ -type f -name "*.exe" -delete
>       # Copy the electron files needed for scratch.
>       cp -rf /usr/lib/electron11/* $srcdir/$pkgname/
>       # This file is useless
>       rm $pkgname/resources/default_app.asar
<       install -Dm644 -t "$pkgdir/usr/share/$pkgname/" resources/app.asar
<       cp -r resources/static/ "$pkgdir/usr/share/$pkgname/"
>       install -dm755 "${pkgdir}/usr/share/$pkgname"
>       cp -r $srcdir/$pkgname -t "$pkgdir/usr/share"
<       install -Dm755 -t "$pkgdir/usr/bin/" "$pkgname"
>       install -Dm755 "$" $pkgdir/usr/bin/$pkgname

For the bash script:

$ diff scratch3
< exec electron /usr/share/scratch3/app.asar "$@"
> exec /usr/share/scratch3/electron "$@"

Tested successfully with Scratch3 3.18.1 and 3.20.1.

Scratch3 stopped working for me:

a window opens with "Scratch is loading..." forever.

Had to replace electron with electron11 as a workaround:

$ diff PKGBUILD.old
< depends=(electron)
> depends=(electron11)
< 'd9dd01d52f91ded4ef033dcd22ed97e7bf3a2afc64b28b5c2d36efd095897953f0d93b7e5ec98905b970f99da2fa57b88e56e01cad54eec13af98e4786cb5bc7'
> 'b3c108d89a5da7394330782dd1e2e59167816236f2410a2ac9bb5fbe89ba4749667ceea91b174b4a7787e251fdd393b06d57a146611c6a66004aff5cc0ac9474'

$ diff scratch3.old
< exec electron /usr/share/scratch3/app.asar "$@"
> exec electron11 /usr/share/scratch3/app.asar "$@"

Tested successfully with Scratch3 3.18.1 and 3.20.1.

Adding this line fixed this issue indeed. Many thanks

@relrel Proposal to fix the build issue mentioned by @Amethyste69

gendesk requires --pkgname "$pkgname"

I've got this message

Thanks for your help

@PCITechie This package runs natively, without wine. It just extracts the electron resources (which are platform-independent) from the Windows installer.

In fact it does what the source of your scratch3-bin package does, only without re-packaing to .deb.

Also, since this package is currently up-to-date, unlike scratch3-bin, I think it would be great to merge scratch3-bin into this package, in order to reduce duplication and confusion of users.

I advise you to call this package "scratch3-win32" instead of scratch3 so people know it runs in wine and not natively.
