@hannu It conflicts with the man page of dosbox. So one can't install dosbox and this package side by side.

You can only install this package and it provides "dosbox", but it doesn't set a command alias for it. So programs searching for dosbox (like dbgl) can't find it.

The binary this package installs is called dosbox-staging. Does the package still really conflict with dosbox?

@god I've wrote a script do determine the display server,if it was wayland,set SDL_VIDEODRIVER=wayland,if it was x11,set SDL_VIDEODRIVER=x11.

The solution seems to be simple. This page ( ) says

To run an SDL2 application on Wayland, set SDL_VIDEODRIVER=wayland. SDL_VIDEODRIVER="wayland,x11" allows SDL2 to use the x11 video driver instead if Wayland is not available.

Since I am only using Wayland, I added SDL_VIDEODRIVER=wayland and it worked.

@god Thanks for you feedback.

  1. The first problem I've fixed,not add sdl_net,it was sdl2_net.
  2. I've read the docs,but I can't fix it now.

Two problems.

  1. "dosbox-staging: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory". I had to manually install the sdl_net 1.2.8-5 package.

  2. When I installed the Flatpak version of it, it ran as native Wayland. But when I ran this, it ran as XWayland. The version numbers seem to be the same. Why doesn't it run as native Wayland? In the output, I see "SDL: version 2.0.8 initialized (x11 video and pulseaudio audio)".
