[SOLVED] Brackets not launching

Hello everyone,

Today I installed the brackets-bin package. The makepkg went fine, here is the log:

$ ls
brackets-bin.install  PKGBUILD
$ makepkg -si

However,  the brackets application is launching, and after a few seconds, closing back again. I believe this is the problem with the PKGBUILD. May you please help me get brackets working?

Re: [SOLVED] Brackets not launching

Every comment in the AUR page for brackets-bin says it doesn't work.  Obviously there is more wrong than just the PKGBUILD.  At this point I don't think there is much you can do.

Thank you for your help. Is there a PKGBUILD that is working?

Re: [SOLVED] Brackets not launching

Not that I am aware of, but I have only read the comments on the AUR page, and have never tried to install it or make brackets run myself.

The 1.10-1 version of the pkgbuild works. Try to build that version instead.

Sorry, but how do I get the older version?

Re: [SOLVED] Brackets not launching

AUR packages are effectively git repos. just checkout an older commit.

I am still unable to find it. Also, I wanted the latest version. So I ended up getting the flatpack version because the live preview is not that important to me. Thank you for your help.
