ok, so I’ve traced the problem down to what seems to be its source, and that is the compilation of skia. I go through all of the steps listed on the github page (https://github.com/aseprite/skia#readme), and everything seems to work fine, up until this step:
gn gen out/Release-x64 --args="is_debug=false is_official_build=true skia_use_system_expat=false skia_use_system_icu=false skia_use_system_libjpeg_turbo=false skia_use_system_libpng=false skia_use_system_libwebp=false skia_use_system_zlib=false"
I run that, and this is the error message that pops up:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/home/cade/deps/depot_tools/gn.py", line 75, in <module> sys.exit(main(sys.argv)) File "/home/cade/deps/depot_tools/gn.py", line 70, in main return subprocess.call([gn_path] + args[1:]) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/subprocess.py", line 172, in call return Popen(*popenargs, **kwargs).wait() File "/usr/lib/python2.7/subprocess.py", line 394, in __init__ errread, errwrite) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/subprocess.py", line 1047, in _execute_child raise child_exception OSError: [Errno 8] Exec format error
Any help would be appreciated, maybe @dacap could help?
