I have it working with only xorg-fonts-misc. Should I add an install file suggesting that people install one of the xorg-fonts packages if they see blank menus?

Requires xorg-fonts-100dpi or xorg-fonts-75dpi (not sure if needs both), otherwise it opens with blank menus and crashes.

Please add theses packages as dependencies.

Here, I had to install them, and restart X.

It just work well, although the fancy icon on agr files doesn't appear. Btw, I'm already settled with it.

ConnorBehan commented on 2017-12-06 21:02

What happens when you choose grace from the "open with other application" list of your file manager?

joaopcnogueira commented on 2017-12-04 14:06

I cannot see the agr files with the fancy icon indicating they will open with grace, like in ubuntu distributions. Is there some way to fix it?

I compiled succesfully the latest version with openmotif. Thanks for the PKGBUILD.

How can I see you much more competent in this matter. I just adapted the ebuild from Gentoo as it was in my power. If you take the trouble to maintain this package, gladly appoint him to you.

Nice patches! There are a couple more I would include:

1. When you create a new data set by formula, the text box is limited to 256 characters which I find incredibly restrictive. Therefore I would run sed -i -e 's/{256}/{8192}/' src/setwin.c

2. Most human interface guidelines frown on right aligned help menus (and probably Motif in general but that's harder to change). So I run a quick grep -rl "'H'. TRUE" src | xargs sed -i -e "s/'H', TRUE/'H', FALSE/g"

3. The icon you've included from the official site is not the ugly one that they hard code into the grace executable. In case you want to use that, I managed to get the XBM file out here: and I made a false colored PNG here:
