PSA: I've started hosting this and all its dependencies as prebuilt packages in my repository for those that want to install them using pacman without messing around with building from the AUR.

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:35 (message): Lua module "wx" is not found Call Stack (most recent call first): CMakeLists.txt:105 (check_lua_module)

/usr/bin/zbstudio is a shell script that invokes /usr/bin/lua. Editing that script to invoke /usr/bin/lua5.3 instead seems like a good interim solution if you need to run zbstudio right now.

@Popolon I fixed the wxlua package to build again using Lua 5.3, but this package (even modified to use Lua 5.3 packages) won't detect that either. It doesn't like being compiled under a non-default system Lua at all. The zerobrane-studio-git package doesn't fare any better right now because there is no upstream work that fixes what is actually broken.

I think the problem is in some of the CMake routines used to detect modules, but I'm out of time to try to put together patches right now. I'd be happy to accept contributions towards this if anybody comes up with something that works. git format-patch dumped here works, or PR's to here.

wxlua-git currently compile with Lua-5.4, but then, zerobrain-studio doesn't detect it, as it try to search wxlua in lua 5.3. Perhaps a zerobrain-studio-git based on last git version could compile with it, else we need to wait for next releases of box wxlua and zerobrain.

This package seems to be broken now that lua has updated to 5.4, since the wxlua dependency is missing

@caleb, the package in your repo doesn't bundle the debugging modules either.

This package neither builds nor bundles the linux C module redistributables found under bin/linux in the source. These are library overrides that are absolutely vital for debugging. Their absence in the package, combined with some assertion by author that I might have misinterpreted to mean those were no longer needed (turns out he was talking about something else) sent me on a two-day angry goose chase because debugging just plain wouldn't work.

For lfs: zbstudio crashes when trying to search all files (ctrl-shift-f) For lpeg/lexlpeg: I get an error on startup about not being able to find "lexlpeg.markdown"

I think lexlpeg is part of Scintilla? See this commit that added it to zbstudio.

The "Source > Comment/Uncomment" ctrl-u hotkey also doesn't work, but I'm not sure if that's related to the parsers or not . It now lowercases the selected text instead of commenting. Manually clicking on the menu option still works.

Thanks for the report @DeltaF1. It does look like there is a problem with what Lua libraries to bundle, but I'm having trouble verifying exactly which ones.

Can you give me an example of something in zbstudio that crashes for each of these modules? I'm particularly interested in what lexlpeg has to do with this since I can't even find such a thing on Luarocks, much less my own system. It looks like something ZBS specific, but isn't getting packaged right.

It looks like there are a couple other things that could be needed as well.

This package seems to missing some lua dependencies, namely lfs, lpeg, and lexlpeg. My install crashes if I try to use features that depend on those lua libraries.
