Compiling Inkscape on Windows with MSYS2

Hi Kris,

I just reverted your change in the mentioned article.

It should not be necessary to set any environment variables if you use the proper MinGW shell for building Inkscape (that's one of the nice things of MSYS2 builds compared to our previous devlibs builds). Did you try to build in cmd.exe? As a matter of fact the file "msysenv.sh" will likely go away as part of our "root-dir tidying" efforts unless people are still actively using it (which they probably should not).

Let me know if I missed something or you need help with the MSYS2 build!

I am still not able to successfully compile with the new system. If I remember well I'm stuck with the "cmake -G Ninja .." phase, so after a years break, I did not manage to setup the new system and contribute to translating and source code checks with cppcheck.

That's fine. Though it comes as a surprise to have a script for setting the variables. :-)

Well, let me know if I can help (I'm also available in IRC as "Ede_123" if you want to chat in real time). If any of the steps are unclear I'd like to know, so we can work on making them clearer! --Eduard (talk) 15:46, 24 August 2017 (UTC)
