Any way of getting this working now Python 2 is being phased out?

Tjuh commented on 2020-02-06 15:13 (UTC)

I'm getting this popup error when trying to launch:

An assertion failed! ./src/common/filename.cpp(2035): assert "Assert failure" failed in IsValidDirComponent(): invalid directory component in wxFileName

Anyone know what's up with that?

I had to add the python-setuptools and I think also python-pip inorder to build in clean environment. Havent tried running it yet though.

It builds after manually installing wxgtk2, as Tjuh says, but I'm getting the below error when trying to launch the game now (from wxlauncher Play button).

/tmp/makepkg/wxlauncher/src/wxLauncher-release-0.11.0/code/apis/FlagListManager.cpp(341): assert "this->IsProcessingOK()" failed in GetBuildCaps(): attempt to get build caps even though processing hasn't succeeded

Figured it out, needs wxgtk2 as depends.

I'm getting the following error when building this pkg:

Could NOT find wxWidgets (missing: wxWidgets_LIBRARIES wxWidgets_INCLUDE_DIRS) (Required is at least version "2.8.10") CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:79 (message): Unable to locate wxWidgets -- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

Updated to latest version and moved to building with python3.

Hey there - I got errors like the following when attempting to build the package: CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.4/Modules/FindPkgConfig.cmake:568 (message): None of the required 'sdl2' found I manually installed sdl2 and it appeared to build successfully, so there may need to be some additions to makedepends or depends to fully express the required build dependencies.
