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.

Enjoy.

@qark: when and how you get this error?

It seems you're using XFCE. Don't know how you launch applications on your system, but you should see acestream engine in your application list and clicking on it the application should start. At least that works on KDE Plasma.

It seems your launcher is not resolving bash variables. Try to execute this command inside your desktop session, with your user, using the terminal:

acestreamengine --client-gtk --state-dir $HOME/.local/share/ACEStream --log-file $HOME/.local/share/ACEStream/acestreamengine.log

Anyway, this has nothing to do with acestream user. How you were launching acestream before the latest update?

BTW, desktop entry seems to be broken on my installation: https://pastebin.com/raw/EXeGpWR0

@digitalone Running as service from root decreases system security. Probably setting --state-dir would prevent from creating /home/acestream. Also creating system user and files should be done via acestream.sysusers and acestream.tmpfiles, not in acestream.install script.

@qark I didn't need it. The previous post install script create a useless user directory. Even other people using the engine tried to delete the user after the installation. Most of the time you don't need to launch acestream as a service and you can do it as a simple user using the desktop entry. Otherwise you can launch it as a service from root, or enable it and it will start at the boot, so acestream user is not really needed.

@digitalone Why did you remove acestream user?
