Call for testing for gzdoom

As proposed by the template provided by snapcrafters, I am now posting a call for testing for my newly created snap for gzdoom.

I happily accept any recommendations or corrections!

I would also like to ask a couple of questions, now that I have your attention! :slight_smile:

  1. The project uses several licenses, and some of them are not accepted/defined by snap. How should I handle this? My understanding is that most of the code is covered by GPL-3.0, so is it okay to put this as the license in the store?
  2. Is it possible to setup build-with-github with specific branches? Right now the github repo holds the ‘master’ branch, which builds a “stable” version, and a ‘git-version’ branch that build from the latest commit.

Thanks! Rasmus

regular daily bump for testing


Tried running it by following the instructions in, but could not get it to run.

GZDoom g4.2.4 - 2019-11-02 21:34:26 +0100 - SDL version
Compiled on Dec 18 2019
M_LoadDefaults: Load system defaults.
sh: 1: kdialog: not found


Distributor ID: neon
Description:    KDE neon User Edition 5.17
Release:        18.04
Codename:       bionic

Thanks for reporting!
I have tried adding kdialog as a stage-package and that build is available on the edge channel (x86-64/amd64 only right now). Would you mind trying to install it with

sudo snap install gzdoom --edge

and see if that works?

Still doesn’t work, sorry.

gcl@evolv:~$ This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in "".
Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

I tried building it again, would you mind testing that one? :slight_smile: (On edge) Thanks again.
