This package needs a custom icu built with gcc5 by Adobe. I have to use gcc5 to link it to the final binary.

If you don't want to build gcc5, just install prebuilt brackets from

If you want to switch to the system icu, try it yourself and I'm happy to merge your patches.

@BigEars431 Any luck ? I tried both, brackets and brackets-bin with no luck, before moving on to the Flatpak. The Flatpak version runs fine, with the exception of Live Preview. I have Chrome (google-chrome) installed but again, Live Preview fails. Even the prebuilt binaries from fail to launch.

Using flatpak version for the mean time until the self-closing issue gets resolved. Still trying to figure out what's going on. Will submit patches if I fix it!

Even with this new version, it builds successfully but when I execute brackets, it starts and then after displaying the main window it self-closes. I've tried with the brackets-bin version and same thing happens.

@alfredo.ardito @qq736363980 @Twiki

Does the same version of bracket-bin run? If bracket-bin runs, you can copy files from bracket-bin to bracket part by part to locate the problem.

Brackets starts but after displaying the main window it self-closes. Any clue?

Started to build the package... Built the entire kernel as well as an AI capable of destroying the whole galaxy...

For me, after updating yesterday, Brackets self-closes a few seconds after starting it up. Uninstalling and reinstalling didn't help. Same result.

Desktop is Plasma. x86_64.

Does anyone else experience this ?
