By default it builds the 32-bit package,
to change that you need to uncomment the _arch=x64 variable at the start of the PKGBUILD file

This package uses 'fuse-overlayfs' with id mapping to merge package and user config

Anyone can easily debug both the script and notepadpp/wine:
- For the script start so: SH_TRACE=1 notepadpp
- For notepadpp/wine you need to set the WINEDEBUG variable (see: https://man.archlinux.org/man/wine.1#WINEDEBUG)

I was getting extremely ugly code completion popups that blocked the code it was suggesting for - based on a similar suggestion, I ran winecfg and unchecked "Allow the window manager to decorate the windows", and now it works as it should.

It also, obviously, removed the nice KDE styles from the rest of the window as well, but that's a small price to pay for not having to give up one of the very few programs from Windoze that I still love. I do understand that there are many better IDEs, and I also use Code for larger projects, but when I just want to do some quick and dirty work on a text file, nothing beats it. Thank you for the work!

@ahmedmoselhi - I added user and group id mapping to fuse-overlayfs (it maps to the user running it) it works now. I suspect that fuse-overlayfs refuses to copy root owned files to the upper fs. Thanks for the report!

This is cool as a extra backup editor, I used to be fond of N++ back in the day thanks for making this easy.
