The launcher files are installed under the group "games". Please add your user to this group with usermod -a -G games, otherwise the launcher will not be able to auto-update itself properly.

To disable the popup asking for system integration at each startup, execute touch $HOME/.local/share/appimagekit/no_desktopintegration.

@regazzoj Yes, Wine does ask if you want to install Mono and Gecko when you first use a new Wine prefix, because these two are packages that are often needed when running Windows executables.

@Genesis it was perfectly clear for me. I thought it was wine-mono and wine-gecko because when I tried to launch Dofus game without any wine installations, a popup appeared with information about missing packages, and it was talking about wine-mono. So I installed it, but it doesn't fix my issue. After that I looked for wine pakcages which could fix my problem and found out that wine-gecko was 'Wine's built-in replacement for Microsoft's Internet Explorer' so I installed it, and I was able to receive emails. When I have time, I'll try to install Ankama-launcher on a VM, and see if I missed something. Anyway, thanks for your answers !

@regazzoj I took a couple hours to try and troubleshoot your issue. I was able to reproduce it on a clean Manjaro VM, and the installation of wine-gecko didn't fix it (wine-mono isn't relevant since Dofus doesn't use .NET). It looks like the Dofus client loads a webpage in the background that triggers a certificate email, when you need a confirmation code to unlock a protected account.
However, I was able to find out that at least one of the optional dependencies for wine fixes the issue, allows the client to load webpages and triggers the email.
The thing is, there are so many optional dependencies to check one after the other to find the one (or the ones) that are mandatory to make the certificate email work that I just don't have the courage to test them all. :/
Another thing worth noting : if you can't load the in-game shop, you won't receive the certificate email, since the in-game shop is also a webpage.

Right now, I won't add wine-gecko to the dependencies, as it didn't fix the issue on my side. If someone finds the exact optional Wine dependency that allows the client to load webpages, I'll add this Wine dependency to the package dependencies.

I hope this whole explanation was understandable !

@Genesis, I fixed my issue installing wine, wine-mono and wine-gecko. This should be written somewhere as dependencies. Hope it helps.

@regazzoj I'm pretty sure this has absolutely nothing to do with this package. Maybe you'd have better luck asking on the official forums.

Hi everyone, I have a problem with Ankama Shield and certificates on Manjaro. When I install it on my computer, I never received any email for certificate. So I log in Ankama Launcher, run Dofus, and then it warns me to add the computer with a certificate, but I never receive any email with code. Do you have any idea what should do ? Maybe I don't have all the depencies...

Hello ! Checksum of ankama-launcher-3.0.0-x86_64.AppImage seems to be troubling again

@TraqKay Thanks for the heads up, I've updated the package !

Need to update checksum in PKGBUILD, ankama installer file changed

Temp fix (for x86_64): md5sums_x86_64=('121da65e54f3ff7943d60d9f7c0b131e') => md5sums_x86_64=('9a3630f2f01da494488400ca02a1a5f1')
