Packaging a standalone app GRTools to run on EndeavourOS

I failed to use debtap to convert this GRtools app to run on EndeavourOS, [KDE Plasma]
Please, any one can help to make a package to get this standalone app to run EndeavourOS, [KDE Plasma]?

Thanks a lot.


  • Recommended: Linux Mint 20 - 64 Bit (Debian)

It may be necessary to install required dependencies (execute commands one after the other):

$ sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install lib32stdc++6
$ sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-0:i386
$ sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf:i386
$ sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-murrine:i386
$ sudo apt-get install gnome-themes-extra:i386
$ sudo apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev:i386

If you want to identify necessary libraries, the command ldd can help. You can run this command from Terminal in the GordonsReloadingTool directory to return a list of the libraries required by the GordonsReloadingTool and their status on the system:

ldd GordonsReloadingTool

Please note:

GRT is not developed under Linux, so it is a cross-compiled application and is only tested extensively with the recommended system mentioned above. If you have problems running GRT on your distribution, please consult your Linux help on how to run Standard 32-bit Gtk applications on your specific distribution.
