SOLVED

Mine arch is:
uname -m

aarch64

and I have some problem installing it (scratch)

I put aarch64 in /tmp/config-deb.json then make the package and no errors are show.

but when I try to install:

Wrong architecture 'aarch64' -- Run dpkg --add-architecture to add it and update afterwards

so I do:
sudo dpkg --add-architecture aarch64

and it show an error

pkg-config-dpkghook: Avviso: Architecture aarch64 not defined in architecture tables, ignored

can anyone help me?
best regards.
P.S. sudo dpkg --add-architecture aarch64 is a bad idea: I remove it

I solved by myself.
I put in /tmp/config-deb.json arm64 instead aarch64
remove all file build on previous try
download the last exe
and all go right

When running "/tmp/scratch-desktop/scratch-desktop" I get the following error: [17853:1007/172314.266423:FATAL:setuid_sandbox_host.cc(158)] The SUID sandbox helper binary was found, but is not configured correctly. Rather than run without sandboxing I'm aborting now. You need to make sure that /tmp/scratch-desktop/chrome-sandbox is owned by root and has mode 4755.
Trace/breakpoint trap

Edit
Worked when I used the create-deb-1386 after changing "sudo gdebi /tmp/scratch-desktop_3.12.0_i386.deb" with "sudo gdebi /tmp/scratch-desktop_3.15.0_i386.deb

For the file create-deb-raspbian.sh, it should have the line 'sudo dpkg --add-architecture amd64'.

Dear Sirs,
After one year, I try to remake a new SCRATCH64bit.DEB for Linux.
From LINUX MINT 20.1 (Ubuntu 20.1) 64bit., I used the .sh script file I used in the past...
I just changed the version of scratch, but the command:

wget -O /tmp/scratch-desktop.exe 'https://downloads.scratch.mit.edu/desktop/Scratch%20Desktop%20Setup%VERSIONNUMBER.exe'

Is no more valid. So **I downloaded manually the .exe and and put in /temp the "scratch-desktop.exe" file. the .DEB was created, about 207Mbyte. the installation of .deb works, the menu icon is created but Scatch doesn't start!

From terminal:

`
linux@Mint201:~$ scratch-desktop
internal/modules/cjs/loader.js:586
throw err;
^

Error: Cannot find module '/usr/lib/scratch-desktop/resources/electron.asar/browser/init.js'

I managed to run the latest version of Scratch on the latest Debian Buster by doing the following:

  1. When I followed the deb (amd64) instructions, I get a chrome-sandbox error. This should be fixed by executing: chmod 4755 chrome-sandbox as root.
  2. Then after this, I got stuck with the Scratch is loading... screen. After A LOT of investigation, I solved the problem as follows:
  • Go to directory resources/app
  • vim main.js
  • find nodeIntegration: true
  • after true add: ,\n contextIsolation: false\n
  • save and run scratch-desktop

Hope this helps someone!

Thanks a lot @bert003! In my case, to modify the file I had to first unpack the app.asar file (also in resources/). I did

  • npm install asar
  • asar extract app.asar modif
  • edit the file modif/main.js
  • asar pack modif app.asar

And then it works.

Dear Sirs,

I have followed the procedure and I obtained a working .deb installation file using the latest verison "Scratch-desktop v3.26.0"
After installed into Linux Mint 20.3 MATE 64bit, I have the ""SCRATCH IS LOADING" screen..
Then I try to modify the main.js
I had problem installing via terminal, of "npm install asar", so I used SNAP to install asar...

sudo rm /etc/apt/preferences.d/nosnap.pref && sudo apt update && sudo snap install asar --classic

after that,
cd /lib/scratch-desktop/resources sudo asar extract app.asar modif cd modif sudo nano main.js (and into the line "nodeIntegration: true" I changed it nto: "true,\n contextIsolation: false\n") cd .. sudo asar pack modif app.asar
Now If I launch Scratch, NO screen appear, anche the program close without showimg the Scratch windows (this is differemt from the starting issue with freezing screen "SCRATCH IS LOADING" )

Try to start Scratch via terminal, I obtain:

linux@Mint:/lib/scratch-desktop/resources$ /usr/lib/scratch-desktop/electron "/usr/lib/scratch-desktop/Scratch-desktop"
A JavaScript error occurred in the main process Uncaught Exception: SyntaxError: Unexpected identifier at Object.call (/usr/lib/scratch-desktop/resources/app.asar/main.js:1323:181) at e (/usr/lib/scratch-desktop/resources/app.asar/webpack:/webpack/bootstrap:25:22) at Object.call (/usr/lib/scratch-desktop/resources/app.asar/main.js:1328:97) at __webpack_require__ (/usr/lib/scratch-desktop/resources/app.asar/webpack:/webpack/bootstrap:25:22) at module.exports../node_modules/ajv/lib/ajv.js (/usr/lib/scratch-desktop/resources/app.asar/webpack:/webpack/bootstrap:96:10) at Object.<anonymous> (/usr/lib/scratch-desktop/resources/app.asar/main.js:1:1052) at Module._compile (node:internal/modules/cjs/loader:1116:14) at Object.Module._extensions..js (node:internal/modules/cjs/loader:1169:10) at Module.load (node:internal/modules/cjs/loader:988:32) at Module._load (node:internal/modules/cjs/loader:829:12) libva error: vaGetDriverNameByIndex() failed with unknown libva error, driver_name = (null) [2870:0122/203824.204885:ERROR:viz_main_impl.cc(161)] Exiting GPU process due to errors during initialization libva error: vaGetDriverNameByIndex() failed with unknown libva error, driver_name = (null) [2886:0122/203824.280940:ERROR:sandbox_linux.cc(376)] InitializeSandbox() called with multiple threads in process gpu-process.

Seems that the ASAR procedure to modify the file main.js has broke someting...Is it possible to solve this problem?
Many thanks in advance for your job!
