Thanks for the heads up. Their build system can't handle the separated build and install steps. While combining both steps again I was finally able to reproduce the missing atlas.sql problem and can confirm the fix by manually invoking the which now takes place in the build() function.

The .xpm is correctly placed into /usr/share/pixmaps/ but the .desktop file is missing from /usr/share/applications. It's there as /usr/share/unknown-horizons/content/packages/, though.

BTW, builds fine for me, using a clean chroot.

Please try to rebuild with this added line after line 25 (at the end of the build function): python horizons/engine/ 2048

I still can't reproduce this in any way, it works here in a clean chroot and in my user setup so it's really hard to get anywhere without knowing whats happening.

Are there any related error messages in the build log? Is the file available in the package?

$ pacman -Ql unknown-horizons | grep atlas.sql
unknown-horizons /usr/share/unknown-horizons/content/atlas.sql
build() {
    cd "$srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver"
    python build --quiet
    python horizons/engine/ 2048

I keep getting this error:

FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'content/atlas.sql'

Seems related to: Maybe there is a way to work around by generating the atlas.sql after installation?

Is fife available in /usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/fife/

Which package have you installed, fife or fife-git?

Fresh install fails for me, due to dependency not found:

~ $ unknown-horizons Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/unknown-horizons", line 381, in <module> main() File "/usr/bin/unknown-horizons", line 109, in main import horizons.main File "/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/horizons/", line 41, in <module> from fife import fife as fife_module ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'fife'

Please make sure your fife is >= 0.4.2, fifechan >= 0.1.5 (latest releases) and the file is available at /usr/share/unknown-horizons/content/atlas.sql.

If both is the case please file a bug report upstream or contribute to this bug because

  • the game doesn't find the available file,
  • the game should even start without this file and
  • it works here with a clean chroot build.

Updated PKGBUILDs can be found here.

I would happily adopt or co-maintain this package.
