Question about Skia on Windows - publishing a .net core standalone app does not copy libSkiaSharp.dll - where would be the best place to put a targets file similar to Avalonia.Skia.Linux.Natives? And is it even a good solution for it?

@WojciechKrysiak which runtime identifier are you publishing for?

win-x64
@jkoritzinsky I know i could try win7-x64 from Skia, but it kind of seems unnecessary

If SkiaSharp doesn’t supply a win-x64 build then they don’t have one. You should just publish for win7-x64.

win-x64 is for winrt
which is not supported
you can only use win7-x64

Interesting, it's the default for vs2017 windows publish
and there is no UI way to select win7. Never mind, thanks for the update

perhaps it comes from the rids in your csproj file?

By the way @danwalmsley && @jkoritzinsky , did you have time to look at #1781
It looks like a limitation of the vs2017 folder publish

@danwalmsley win-x64 doesn’t have anything to do with WinRT.

I was convinced that was the case :)

Ok, win7-x64 works, though the UI still shows a wrong value for that

Does avalonia only work with gtk3? I.e. no avalonia for redhat 6?

there was an old backend for gtk2
but now we only have gtk3
there are other backends in progress that may work there

Probably winit will be an okay fit, though system dialogs are going to be a pain because these go through the widget toolkit and aren't OS standard :(
seems GTK is unavoidable at some level, but it will always feel out of place in places like KDE
