I asked regarding our build issues and Paul provided a patch that should fix. Regardless, we should probably switch to his branch of wxLua. Both are linked in this email:,1

I've had a look at the build script, which is build/ It includes the URLs to all the libraries that are being used, among them the wxwidgets and wxlua forks. It is a custom shell script rather than any existing build system, but maybe it can be used for packaging? I think it should at least be possible to use it to figure out how to build and where to install things.

If someone needs a working 1.80 you can just run the as a workaround.

The binary version of 1.70.1 I still have is available here with few other packages :

I also make a ArchlinuxARM version (for arm versions if needed) in :

I added all the files from the package wxlua-svn 252-3 I have on my system (x86-64), listed by pacman -Q --list wxlua-svn in this tarball (to untar in /, so you will be able to use it until this package is patched for changes, and to compile zerobrainstudio or use the package frop my ~repo :

In the same directory, a modifed PKGBUILD for 1.80, the patch is replaced by a more generic sed :

The new version of zerobrane-studio (1.80) need a new version of wxlua, so upgrade of this package will depend on it.

 /usr/bin/lua5.2: src/editor/package.lua:466: wxLua: Unable to call an unknown method 'ReplaceTargetRaw' on a 'wxStyledTextCtrl' type.

My version of wxlua-svn is 252-3, perhaps you can try to make the same version looking at past AUR git version, or ask to owner of package to correct it. Sorry, wxlua-svn is installed on my computer but I don't have the package anymore and if I try to compile it again it fail.

I will look at the upgrade of zerobrane-studio to version 1.80

I tried to get it to work with a few obvious edit and the patch no longer applies. Unfortunately even after getting it to the point where it should work I ran into some wxlua issue.

Wxlua-svn doesn't work anymore either.

Doesn't the Author of Zerobrane Studio have his own branch of wxlua or something? I think we should ask him for support on getting this to work properly.

@popolon: Since I orphaned the package months ago, there currently is no maintainer. Just adopt it and fix it.

Popolon commented on 2017-11-16 20:50

nice, hollunder, your patch work !

I was able to contact the maintainer of wxlua-svn, I adopted it patched it, just need to do the same for this package now. At least I have zerobrane working now with your patch.

Thanks a lot !
