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.

@Satro Good call ! I added fuse as a dependency. Thanks !

Satro commented on 2020-03-25 13:21

I think there is a missing dependency. Upon starting the launcher after the installation, I got :

dlopen(): error loading

AppImages require FUSE to run. 
You might still be able to extract the contents of this AppImage 
if you run it with the --appimage-extract option. 
for more information

As required, I installed Fuse and it works fine.

Thanks @Genisis, the solution works !

Hi @Skydave ! If you're french, I've already covered these issues on the official Dofus forums and explain how to solve them temporarily, while waiting for an official fix. Unfortunately, I don't have any other solution at the moment.

Here's a link to a post I made :

I recently install ankama-launcher, open-jdk and wine, when I launched from launcher Dofus the loading screen stuck to 56%. But when I open directly dofus with wine, the game can charge and go to the login. I think that it is the parse of the login that cause the problem.

Hi @Mathius and thanks for your feedback !

I've made some changes to the PKGBUILD to add p7zip as a make dependency and install a script in /usr/bin to run Ankama Launcher from $PATH.

Hope these changes will make it easier for you and the others that don't use .desktop files ! Let me know if there's anything else ;)

Mathius commented on 2019-11-05 02:44

After installing the package, I look at the code of the package and write down 2 points: - The first point is the dependency of the p7zip package (Installed on most installations but perhaps specify it more precisely) - The second point is personal opinion but in order to facilitate the subsequent launch of the launcher should it not ideally create a symbolic link to it that would be stored in '/bin' ?

Sincerely, A user a little too curious

@Zyfarok Thanks for the heads up ! I've updated the package. Don't hesitate to use the "Flag package out-of-date" feature if you have access to it !

I guess the launcher AppImage was updated :

==> Validating source_x86_64 files with md5sums...
    ankama-launcher-2.9.12-x86_64.AppImage ... FAILED
==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

@Kohega I noticed it too, I don't know if it's related to the launcher itself or the package/the way it is installed. Since it's an AppImage, there not much to do to install/run it though.
