I created this package because acestream-engine was upgraded to a beta version and I wanted to stay on the stable one.

This is a more user-friendly package of acestream engine, it contains a desktop entry to launch the GUI from applications menu, a service file to launch the engine as a systemd service (acestream user will not be show on the login display manager), libappindicator is required and it will be upgraded following only stable versions.

To start the engine, just select AceStream Engine from applications menu and an icon should appear in the system tray.

Alternatively, you could start the systemd service sudo systemctl start acestream-engine.service or enable it at boot sudo systemctl enable acestream-engine.service. In this way there's no icon in the system tray, but the engine is launched in memory cache mode: cache data is stored into RAM rather than disk.

--skipchecksums doesn't help here since some ISP's HTML stub was downloaded, not an actual archive.

digitalone commented on 2020-01-19 19:13

makepkg --install --skipchecksums

@qark well i found out that acestream website is blocked here in russia, so i used vpn to download tar file. now everythings okay.

@hackins That's weird, cause I've just downloaded the archive and it's sha256sum is equal to PKGBUILD's. Could you try it yourself?

i got this during install, how to fix it?

I made some tests and it's impossible now. It needs python2-setuptools, otherwise it won't even start. Tried to use only python3 setuptools and it's not detected.

The only solution would be to include python2 packages under /usr/lib/acestream-engine/lib/, but it's too difficult. Maybe it world be easy in the future to depend on custom AUR packages.

Thanks for this hint @qark, I will check that.

qark commented on 2019-12-23 09:04

Is there any chance that AceStream could be converted to using Python3 packages since Python2 is going to be EOL'ed on 2020-01-01?

Many changes in this new update. Set directories following arch guidelines. Now app data goes in /var/lib/ACEStream or ~/.config/ACEStream.

acestream user has been reset to launch systemd service in a safer environment without using root (acestream user is not showed on login window). acestream user and /var/lib/ACEStream directory are set using systemd-sysusers and systemd-tmpfiles files respectively.

Tested systemd unit file, it's working to me using acestream user. This method is recommended since RAM cache mode is set avoiding to save useless cache data on the disk.

@digitalone: Thanks for your work!
