The latest 8.1-1 does not work.

[huzhifeng@archlinux ~]$ pacman -Q notepadpp
notepadpp 8.1-1
[huzhifeng@archlinux ~]$ notepadpp 
wine: failed to open "/home/huzhifeng/.local/share/notepadpp/notepadpp": c0000135

I made some changes to fix the problem, here is the patch.

[huzhifeng@archlinux notepadpp]$ git diff

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

Thanks a lot for making this package! I tried to build it in a chroot where the wine dependency could not be resolved (without multilib). After moving the dependencies directly to the package section everything went fine though (as they are just needed to run the software).

I made some changes to the package:
- By default it builds the Win32 package with 'fuse-overlayfs' to merge package and user config (I removed the 'legacy' start script)

Default (from PKGBUILD):

I think, an own prefix is overkill, maybe a notepadpp-win32 (or lib32-notepadpp) split package would be a solution.

A 64bit prefix is required for x86_64. Mine default one is 32-bit. I suggest using own prefix for the app.
