The version is not working properly, so I modified the version to update it. @larvan Is it possible to make a release of binary as pencil-bin?

the other evolus-pencil pkgbuild have been harmonized to simply 'pencil' (which exist since 2012), also this need to follow

@larvan Confirm that PKGBUILD by @zhangkaizhao fixes the problem

@larvan I have just built it and succeeded to start and use it. (I am in the Mate desktop environment.)

Unfortunately at this point there is a library incompatibility and the latest version won't start. I will update the package when it gets fixed.

I was wrong about the binary releases. They just moved them from github to their own hosting. Updated to 3.0.1 - enjoy!

larvan commented on 2017-03-30 06:55 (UTC)

There are no binaries in the 3.0.0+ releases:(

larvan commented on 2017-03-18 10:47 (UTC)

I updated to 3.0.0_rc.2 and added file associations for *.{ep,epz,epgz} since now the program supports it. Enjoy (and sorry for the delayed update)!
