Please remove both of the conflicts entries. The -bin package should specify it's own provides/conflicts relative to the base package name (this one) not the other way around. This is documented in the Wiki on package naming. Also the same goes for the v2 alternative package, that should provide/conflict this, not the other way around as this is the stable normalized package name and the others are alternates.

Same issue here with the eternal blinking logo on electron v13. Works with electron v11 though (thx @jle64 !).

Pencil has just the logo blinking, when launching i just have this in terminal:

useHWAConfig: undefined Hardware acceleration disabled for Linux. Background web-printer started. Shortcut main service started. (node:15007) ProtocolDeprecateCallback: The callback argument of protocol module APIs is no longer needed. (Use electron --trace-warnings ... to show where the warning was created)

i read some line about exec command in desktop file, but i juste have:

Exec=/usr/bin/pencil %u

i've tried to add --trace-warnings in /usr/bin/pencil

exec electron --trace-warnings /usr/lib/pencil "$@"

but nothing more displayed in terminal.

what could i do ?

i'm runnin electron 12.0.9-1 pencil 3.1.0-7 yarn 1.22.10-1

How did @jle64 run it with electron11?

@alfredo.ardito just install the electron11 package, then run "electron11 /usr/lib/pencil" or copy the /usr/bin/electron script somewhere in your PATH to take priority over the default and change electron to electron11 inside.

Same for me. It starts and stays on the blinking logo and nothing else.
How did @jle64 run it with electron11?

I had to run it with electron11 instead of current version of electron, as otherwise it stays on the blinking logo screen at startup.

Don't know if it's just on my machine, but if someone has the same issue consider changing electron to electron11.

@BrLi working perfect now, thank you very much & sorry for not confirming earlier!

Sorry it seems all is working fine. My mistake. Thanks for the input!

@sastia, @sickcodes, it seems to be upstreamed, and should be fixed in devel branch, so I backported them, should work now, and with electron10(tm).

@Tio, the path to the icon is rather relative, you just need to put your icon theme into correct folder. further reading:

TL;DR, a) assume the icon theme is my_icon_theme, put it into your $HOME/.local/share/icons/ and it should work.

b) assume it is just a single png icon with size 128x128, put it into your $HOME/.local/share/icons/hicolor/128x128/apps/pencil.png

Can't save, installed devel branch instead until a patch is provided by maintainer
