Hi Kris,
 +
 +
I just reverted [[Special:Diff/106786|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!

It's better to ask than to say nothing. :-)

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!
