Ok, so here's what I'm going to do. The bundle itself works. I'm going to modify the PKGBUILD to install an unhindered copy, complete with a redundant bundled version of ren'py. I agree with dcelasun, linux packages shouldn't work like that, so I'm going to work on stripping the reliance on the bundled renpy. maybe with a symlink? Either way, the PKGBUILD should install a working copy at all times, not a broken one.

I've taken over the package, and shall start working on getting it fully back up. I've updated the PKGBUILD to properly point to correct download URL, and am removing the python2 patch as it is no longer necessary. There are renpy module issues that require resolution before this functions fully, and I shall be handling them coming up. I'm going to upload a more functional PKGBUILD, albeit currently still broken.

I've tried updating this package to properly integrate with Arch, but it fights me at every step. It refuses to work without its bundled renpy and, when trying to use renpy from [community], every time I try to fix one thing, something else breaks down entirely. Using the bundled renpy is simply wrong, Linux packages aren't supposed to work that way, but I probably shouldn't spend anymore time on this so I give up.

Package orphaned.

Adopted and completely refactored the package. Changelog:

- Stop using the Windows executable (remove p7zip dependency as a side-effect bonus)
- Stop creating primary executable in build()
- Fix WM_CLASS issues (thanks @grawity)
- Include the icon (PNG, not ICO) and fonts within the package (so it no longer depend on icoutils or ttf-liberation)

The .desktop file needs to be installed as "dischan_JunipersKnot.desktop" to match the WM_CLASS used by the program (see xprop) – some DEs want this. It should have just "Icon=junipersknot" without the extension, too.

I'm not sure which WMs understand .ico icons, but apparently gnome-shell wants PNG, so I used this:

convert "Juniper's Knot.exe_14_1_0.ico" JunipersKnot.png
for f in JunipersKnot-*.png; do
s=$(identify "$f" | awk '{print $3}')
install -Dm644 "$f" "$pkgdir/usr/share/icons/hicolor/$s/apps/junipersknot.png"
