Yeah it's very glitchy. Every file I close I get "Thread failed" or something.
If you compile wxgtk yourself you can disable assertions. I know that's just covering up the problem but I don't see it being fixed soon.

I made the change
This: make CC=gcc CPP=cpp CXX=g++
To this: make CC=gcc CPP=cpp CXX=g++ LDFLAGS="-lgomp -lwebkitgtk-1.0"

This version says assertion failed -
./src/gtk/textctrl.cpp(847): assert "IsSingleLine()" failed in GetEditable(): shouldn't be called for multiline
then when continue, I can examine files in hex okay. I did not really test things out more than that. But it is interesting all of the time I thought about upgrading and my older version 22 was perfectly okay.

This was pretty 'finished' before - isn't the issue just the changes in wxgtk 3.x?
It's pretty simple to patch around - I've been meaning to do that when I get a chance.

On windows 010 hex editor is really good (I like it's templates feature), and it also happens to be on linux.

It's not open source but it would still be nice if somebody packaged it for aur. I once emailed the authors requesting for a portable version but they didn't seem that interested, I suppose it could be installed to a chroot and the binaries be extracted.

Yeah, the same for me! I'm using ArchLinux for a loooonnngg timee, but still not found suitable Hex Editor, sadly. For Windows there is WinHex, HXD and many others which are fast, stable, reliable with many functions. For simple tasks ghex is ok, but as you said too limited on functionality. Still searching, but if I'll found one day good hex editor I'll send message to you. :)

stevenhoneyman commented on 2014-12-26 16:42

Yeah it's not the most "finished" program yet :( Know any better linux hex editors? Winhex is amazing... but it's closed-source expensive Windows software unfortunately. It is one of the few things I have never been able to match on Linux.

dhex (console only) has potential, but is no longer developed.
ghex is too limited on functionality.

Deleted my previous comment, because there was a mistake.

Temporary fix for bypassing linker errors. Edit PKGBUILD and in build section make simple change as shown below.

This: make CC=gcc CPP=cpp CXX=g++
To this: make CC=gcc CPP=cpp CXX=g++ LDFLAGS="-lgomp -lwebkitgtk-1.0"

Now it'll link without any problems.

stevenhoneyman, I know that -lgomp is already in LDFLAGS but linker is still moaning about this, little weird... :|

And despite proper compiling, wxHexEditor is not reliable because it likes to crash randomly and I get asserts from wxWidgets when application is running.
