@rican-linux: you can make it work under X11 like this:

@rican-linux: what you are proposing is basically angband-ncurses, and that package already exists: I'm more interested in finding out what type of font the angband devs are requiring here. I'll write a bug report on their github. Maybe they will fix it on their part.

installed the package as is produces the following error

"angband: Couldn't load the requested font."

the following diff worked

$ cat PKGBUILD.patch 
<     --enable-gtk \
<     --enable-sdl \
<     --enable-sdl-mixer
>     --disable-gtk \
>     --disable-sdl \
>     --disable-sdl-mixer \
>     --disable-x11 \
>     --enable-curses

@andmars: it worked better. Updated pkgbuild.

@FredBezies: and did you restart your xorg session after installing xorg-fonts-misc? Rebooting my machine or just restarting xorg did the trick for me.

@andmars: tried it. Angband won't run with it either. You have to use sdl mode.

Could you add "xorg-fonts-misc" as dependency? Otherwise it won't run saying: "angband: Couldn't load the requested font. (10x20)"

-m -gx11 are not the correct flags, I guess.

I had to use -msdl to run the game.

Adopted and updated this package. It runs well. No need to delete it.

New package - angband is now kept in a git repository instead of svn.
