Issues with compiling!


So I’m following this tutorial ( Aseprite - How to Compile (2019) | Get Aseprite for FREE! - YouTube ) but I’ve gotten stuck. I entered the command ‘ninja -C out/Release skia’ but got this:

| ninja: Entering directory `out/Release’
[1/1] link skia.lib
FAILED: skia.lib
lib.exe /nologo /ignore:4221 /OUT:skia.lib @skia.lib.rsp
CreateProcess failed: The system cannot find the file specified.
ninja: build stopped: subcommand failed. |

I’m not particularly adept in this sort of thing, but from what I understand, it can’t find a particular file. Any solutions? If someone else has had the same problem, feel free to point me in the right direction!

Same here.

From building skia command should be.

ninja -C out/Release-x64 skia modules


ninja -C out/Release skia

That video is a year old now and some changes are done in the source code. I suggest reading github install notes to compile code.
