The build of emscripten part need nodejs-shelljs (AUR package), but this node module is no more maintained since 2 years and AUR since 2018 and conflict on several files with nodejs-pkg (still maintained node js module). Adopted just for upgrade and mark conflict, and disowned it. I don't know enough nodejs. Hope it will help a bit. After installing an upgraded version of nodejs-shelljs (0.8.5) still the same error with

npm start



as recommanded in the documentation:

Is it my current version (not finished) it reuse the .desktop of Paulequilibrio, but try to use a more standard /usr path, compile libs, and use as icon png already existing in docs, instead of copying it from another repository.

@Popolon Feel free to push what you have and reflag for further review. Added you because you previously expressed interest. You can disown if that's no longer the case.

Popolon commented on 2024-03-11 21:46 (UTC)

There is no documentation for compilation on github site, only methods to install binaries appimage, Don't want to work on this. I managed to have the two and libraries, to create .xgde on last version, but don't find any executable file... This is probably why for it's not shipped with any other distributions. I can still give the updated version, as anyway the old one has wrong sha256sum, several errors in dir names and compilation fail anyway

@arthuro555 @Popolon I adopted the package and added both of you as comaintainers to prevent someone with no intention of updating from adopting it, as appears to have happened recently. After the package is updated, if one of you wants to take over as primary maintainer, let me know and I will disown. (The extra privilege of being primary maintainer is ability to add comaintainers.)

Hello, I am arthuro555, one of GDevelop's main contributors. I'd like to help maintain & update this package, could I be added as a co-maintainer? Thanks!!

looks like JoseluCross already got it sadly, I didn't have time to push my modifications.

Hi Popolon I don't use this anymore since a year or more.. Package orphaned Thanks

Popolon commented on 2023-09-07 14:15 (UTC)

If you don't want to manage anymore the package, please orphean it.

Use this to have /usr as default prefix (and not /usr/local):

cmake ../.. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr

and remove the following line, as the file is not here:


use${pkgver}.tar.gz for the source instead and wxwidgets-gtk3.
