@Un1Gfn , Thank you compiling successfully.

Recently pacman started to enforce -Wformat -Werror=format-security in /etc/makepkg.conf

I didn't notice it because my /etc/makepkg.conf hasn't been overwritten.

I have added a little patch to make gcc happy again.

(Similar issue when building gcc itself, from the Arch team.)

Sorry for the delay.

Your error is on lines 2585~2595.

A similar bug has been reported to the upstream.

Will see if I can find some workaround.

@La_Liability Now there is a desktop entry and a text/vnd.i8086emu MIME. Do these work?

@Un1Gfn The installation works now. It seems like there is no .desktop file, and thus there is no desktop icon or program icon in the program tray. To launch the program run the command:
