@Derphiderp and other people experiencing the following problem when attempting to start Brogue:

/usr/bin/brogue: line 6: 6492 Segmentation fault (core dumped) ./brogue "$@"

It is required to add your user to the user group 'games', and after this brogue will work once you have a new user session. (So log out and back in again).

Why brogue requires this, I do not know.

@keenerd your PKGBUILD is i386 set:

Thanks for updating this package. If you have any feedback on libtcod-151, I'd be interested - it's only for this package, after all.

Thanks for making the 151 package.

Libtcod sadly has zero official docs for 1.6.X. Not even any corrections or updates to the doxygen stuff in the source repo. Patching out the SDL1 stuff works, but then instantly segfaults. Still haven't gotten to the bottom of that.

I've packaged libtcod version 1.5.1 specifically for brogue as libtcod-151, and it now works with this patch to brogue's PKGBUILD. I'm not 100% confident my changes are within the AUR guidelines, so please let me know what needs to be improved upon. This package has been broken for ages, if you would like me to take over this package, I'm your guy.

Removing the sed lines doesn't appear to work for me:

Do we need to update the AUR PKGBUILD for libtcod?

Brogue doesn't currently compile with the version of libtcod in the AUR. But it ships with the version of libtcod that it needs and its makefile will use it by default. Currently, the PKGBUILD edits the makefile to have it use the version from the AUR. Commenting out the two sed lines that operate on the makefile in build() in the PKGBUILD seems to fix it.

Hi, brogue is currently segfaulting when starting a new game, is there a patch available?

/usr/bin/brogue: line 6: 6492 Segmentation fault (core dumped) ./brogue "$@"

Hi, I updated your PKGBUILD to add the .desktop file:

Could you add my modifications ? It would make the game easier to launch. Thanks !

prurigro: Thanks. Still sorting the patches out. I'm getting some segfaults and saves/recordings appear in $pwd. Hopefully I can fix those soon.
