Please upgrade t4kcommon to fix invisible messages. Thanks to @pedroprieto

@aequinn personally I don't recommend to install packages in archlinux based distros with flackpack or any other package manager different to pacman. However, I'm not sure if installing it this way could help. It looks like that the issue is caused for some gcc (maybe last versions?)

I have't found a workaround yet, and the bug doesn't appear in debian bug tracker yet.

If I found a way to workaround it I'll post it here (and possibly a package upgrade too)

@coaxx I am experiencing the same issue and also in the game no text seems to render.

@frealgagu - I tried installing the latest from your github repo along with the gcc9 packages from the last release, but I'm still not having any luck getting things to work. Although I may not be installing them correctly.

Poking around the internet I found that there is a tux math flatpack. I am a light/occasional user of my linux computer. I really only get it out to humor the kids or when I'm feeling ambitious about a side project, so it's been awhile, I'm not as familiar with flatpack and snap, is this a recommended course of action with Manjaro or any archlinux distro?

There is no text shown in menues. Tried with fresh installed manjaro 21.1.5 (xfc,kde).

@Nolka yes, it fails if compiled with gcc10+ I've updated the package to build against gcc9, however gcc9 takes a lot building, you can download gcc9 packages (gcc9-libs are required also) here if you don't want to build it manually:

Or even if you want the precompiled package you can download tuxmath 2.0.3-5 here: No gcc9 is required as it is used just as make dependency.

Remember I maintain the latest built package at:

Hi, I have no idea why, but it crashes just after the splash screen, on an segmentation fault.

@Ennoia thanks for the report! I have updated the package. For the record, the patch you mentioned apply and was added to the t4kcommon package.

I am getting an error: $ tuxmath T4K_AddRect() - 'update' ptr invalid! Segmentation fault (core dumped) This is a x86_64 system fully up to date. EDIT 1: I did nothing else, and upon turning on my computer again this morning and running tuxmath, no errors and it seems to be working fine. I didn't even update the system after I saw the error for the first time. EDIT 2: I discovered that after opening it again, I saw the same error. Then, I tried to open it a few more times and in one of those tries, it worked and I was able to practice and it didn't crash during the practice (about 10 mins).

Hello, Thanks for the feedback. I updated both packages with the new URLs. Just FYI this issue has been reported to the tuxmath mailing list, but with no reply or action taken so far from the developers.

ronalde commented on 2014-09-08 07:25 (UTC)

Both the t4k_common and the tuxmath source tarball urls are redirected to the alioth login page so the resulting downloads are html files instead of tarballs. I described an ad-hoc solution using random locations at but The wrong urls:

Now it shouldn't ask for sdl_ttf: fixed with t4k_common-0.0.3-2

FernandoBasso commented on 2011-01-26 12:09 (UTC)

I have sdl_pango. Any way, I installed sdl_ttf (which I didn't have) and it installed fine. Thanks for the package.

tlatsas commented on 2011-01-18 09:11 (UTC)

reported upstream readme and install states that it will use sdl_pango if available and if not then fall back to sdl_ttf

FernandoBasso commented on 2011-01-17 12:34 (UTC)

The compilation stopped at this point: /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lSDL_ttf
