I was getting following errors:

convert: unable to open image 'ApE_win_current.vfs/Accessory Files/Icons and images/monkey_icon.gif': No such file or directory @ error/blob.c/OpenBlob/3537.
convert: no images defined `ape-48x48.png' @ error/convert.c/ConvertImageCommand/3322.

Following changes made it work for me:

ape is working again with a fully up-to-date system. Required rebuilding tclkit-8.6.4-9. For me ape doesn't exit cleanly in i3 but works okay in cinnamon.

Oh, nevermind, now I do get the segfault. Investigating...

psilva commented on 2018-08-25 12:30 (UTC)

Yes, it launches without segfaults. I even upgraded tclkit and sdx, on the off chance you were running some newer version than I am. Do you have old versions of those packages by any chance?

mthead commented on 2018-08-25 11:39 (UTC)

I am getting: % ape [1] 6480 segmentation fault (core dumped) tclkit-dyn /opt/ApE/main.tcl Is ape launching okay for you?

mthead commented on 2018-08-20 12:20 (UTC)

Thank you very much. You didn't have to do that on your trip!

Alright, the internal directory naming convention with 2.0.55 had changed, and that broke the build. Should be working now, though not with 2.0.54 (I assume, untested), as the build() function now unpacks and uses a differently named root directory.

Hey, currently out of town with little access to a computer or Internet. I'll be back on the 24th, and will take a look then.

stiefel40k has updated the PKGBUILD for tclkit and it builds now. However still having the same problem with ape. Although different errors now when trying to build. I have tried it with an that is not actually the newest but 2.0.54 (which I prefer). With that one, I can build and install ape, but it gives the same core dump message when trying to launch it. With the current, I couldn't even build it.

ApE fails to start now with: % ape
[1] 13859 segmentation fault (core dumped) tclkit-dyn /opt/ApE/main.tcl

Trying to rebuild it from the aur gives: /home/matt/ape/PKGBUILD: line 15: 2428 Segmentation fault (core dumped) sdx.kit unwrap ApE.exe

Tried rebuilding tclkit to see if that might need recompiled against some new library but that can't be built either.
