Everything goes well from cloning aseprite to downloading the pre-compiled Skia m-102.
However whenever i try to compile it with
cd aseprite mkdir build cd build export CC=clang export CXX=clang++ cmake \ -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo \ -DCMAKE_CXX_FLAGS:STRING=-stdlib=libc++ \ -DCMAKE_EXE_LINKER_FLAGS:STRING=-stdlib=libc++ \ -DLAF_BACKEND=skia \ -DSKIA_DIR=$HOME/deps/skia \ -DSKIA_LIBRARY_DIR=$HOME/deps/skia/out/Release-x64 \ -DSKIA_LIBRARY=$HOME/deps/skia/out/Release-x64/libskia.a \ -G Ninja \ .. ninja aseprite
it just doesn’t work and instead shows
`CMake Error: The following variables are used in this project, but they are set to NOTFOUND.
Please set them or make sure they are set and tested correctly in the CMake files:
linked by target “app-lib” in directory /home/jeebak/aseprite/src/app

I cant give the full output as it says that the body is too long

Hey gogi_boy
