Regarding both of these issues on Arch, have you tried using the package on the AUR?

See https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/ ... =ecere-sdk

You'll see it launches make with CFLAGS="$(pkg-config libffi --cflags)" to solve the libffi issue.

It also has a dependency on the 'ttf-font' package, which may solve your missing text issue.

Another potential reason for the missing text could be a graphics driver issue. If that is the case, one thing you might try is switching the IDE to OpenGL rendering. This can be done by editing ~/.ecereIDErc to contain:

Code: Select all

{ "DisplayDriver" : "OpenGL" }
Let me know if this helps.
