Current package fails to build. A simple update to 1.20 is enough to make it work, tested locally.

This package is now back on track. It now works. Just updated to the more recent version.

@vikits: I was using a "modified" freetype2 package.

Looks like this software is broken because developer did not updated it.

Orphaning it.

The configure script needs some tweaking. There are references to deprecated freetype-config in configure and files. I did try to change them myself. By replacing "freetype-config" with "pkg-config", "freetypeconf_args --cflags" with "freetypeconf_args --cflags freetype2" and "freetypeconf_args --libs" with "freetypeconf_args --libs freetype2". But still the compilation fails at config. configure: error: *** Unable to find FreeType2 library (

I get an error building the package

configure: error: *** Unable to find FreeType2 library (

(package freetype2 is installed.)

Sorry I didn't realized I was still the maintainer. The package is now orphaned, so you can adopt it :)

Fix the build: cd chroma-1.17 sed -i 's/inline//g' sdlshadowdisplay.c ./configure make

and all is happiness ;)

The game is now playable in a browser :

So I won't consider adopting the package, which loses its interest :/ (in my case at least)

The configure script will need some tweaking for 1.16; it looks for freetype-config which has been removed from upstream for a while apparently. What it should do is use pkgconfig instead. I don't have time to fix this, orphaning.

Here's a PKGBUILD for 1.14:
