No longer works because:

Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/ghextris", line 32, in <module> import gnome.canvas ImportError: No module named gnome.canvas</module>

Added DPI detection. Thanks for the idea, brix.

Users with lower- or standard-resolution screens will likely want to comment out the 3 lines following #HiDPI in the PKGBUILD. Unless they want to play HugeHextris. :)

I suppose one could, in cases where sources dating from the pre-HiDPI era are readily edited to enable HiDPI behaviour, add a routine to the PKGBUILD to auto-detect local screen resolution and build accordingly. That would be an excercise best left to a reader more capable than me.

Made the suggested change. Thanks, brix.

Thanks, flagging package as out of date just as a reminder to myself to make this improvement.

For use on HiDPI screens the size can be doubled by adding 3 lines of sed to the PKGBUILD prepare() function:

prepare() {
cd "$pkgname-$pkgver"
sed -i 's/24/48/' # HiDPI
sed -i 's/26/52/' # HiDPI
sed -i 's/14/28/' # HiDPI
setconf BINDIR '"$PREFIX/bin"'

Adopted and updated the package. It works again now.
