If you have missed it, the NXT client is available here:

Then you should subscribe to [arch-announce] mailing list (or, alternatively, the news feed) - this knowledge was in the news ;)

Ah, rebuilding perl-wx fixed it. Excellent, thanks! I didn't know I had to do that with the perl version bump.

ivan_p commented on 2014-06-16 19:34

After updating the perl package, did you rebuild ALL the local perl packages (aka AUR packages)?
And are you using non English locale?

My problem with perl was non english locale.
My fix is posted at 'perl-wx' AUR page:
$ export LANG=C
before building 'perl-wx' and launching the client, or with:
$ env LANG=C runescape

But due to perl version bump, you should first rebuild ALL local perl-related packages, if you have not already.

I also can't get the GUI to launch. Here's some stats and my findings from about 5 mins worth of poking at it:

Installed versions: http://pastebin.com/SkH0URkT


Using the desktop icon results in nothing happening.

Running "runescape" from the command line causes it to return 0 in:

real 0m0.216s
user 0m0.177s
sys 0m0.033s

Running runescape -v, -h, or --help causes it to output:

WARNING: Running in fallback mode!
rsu-queries will use the system perl so some API calls
may not work until you install certain modules

and return 0.

From what I see, 'perl-archive-extcract' is similar to 'perl-config-inifiles' and 'perl-io-stringy':
They all have bundled version, that is used if none is installed.
Since I've updated perl, I can't launch the client with gui.
Currently stuck with 'perl-wx' rebuild.
I'll update the package, when I'll find the solution.

It's probably related to perl update yesterday:

I did not have time yet to check for the consequences.

goakley commented on 2014-06-05 12:12

I had to install `perl-archive-extract` to run the executable. Should be added to dependencies?

ivan_p commented on 2014-05-03 21:36

libpng12 issue fixed.

If the game still crashes, then you need 'cairo-nogl':

ivan_p commented on 2014-04-28 13:12

I already had libpng12 installed as dependency for another package, so was not aware, that it's needed here.
I'll check this issue later.

MazeChaZer commented on 2014-04-28 13:07

I had to install libpng12 in order to run the game. Shouldn't this be a dependency? Without libpng12 installed, nothing happens if you klick "Play Now" because jagex crashes.
