@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

Can you please make the icon path as relative? We are making custom icons for Linux and we can't deal with these non-relative paths. Thanks!

Dear mantainer,

First of all thank you so much for your work! I have a problem with the program. All the options that save files doesn't seem to work. Save or export all do nothing. May be I'm doing something wrong? May be there is some dependency missing? The build of the program works smoothly and without errors.

@BrLi, I've added you as a co-maintainer. Feel free to update the PKGBUILD with your improved version.

/usr/share/applications/pencil.desktop has wrong permissions (640 instead of 644), so it's not readable by users and the launcher does not show up in the menu.

I seem to remember vaguely that some time ago there was an issue with some sandboxing feature that was enabled in the default “linux“ kernel but not in some other kernels (linux-zen I think?). Are you perhaps using an old or non-standard kernel, ortsacs?

I have just installed this program and it didn't start. Problem was that chrome-sandbox hasn't setuid bit activated. I have to activate it manually and now the program works fine.

I couldn't reproduce this. I tried uninstalling the package, clearing out the build directories src & pkg directories, and then built, installed, & ran the program and it launched fine.
