I'm having the same problem as @LinuxIsBest, @romax, and @Serial, with the same logs as @romax. I tried rebuilding the package. (Arch Linux)

I can confirm the bug @Serial reported on 2020-02-18 22:07

Unlike him/her I am using Arch Linux

Linux version 5.5.4-arch1-1 (linux@archlinux) (gcc version 9.2.1 20200130 (Arch Linux 9.2.1+20200130-2)) #1 SMP PREEMPT Sat, 15 Feb 2020 00:36:29 +0000

Visible in the log (ctrl+shift+i then 'console' tab) is an npm related error:

Uncaught Error: The module '/usr/lib/balena-etcher/node_modules/xxhash/build/Release/hash.node'
was compiled against a different Node.js version using
NODE_MODULE_VERSION 75. This version of Node.js requires
NODE_MODULE_VERSION 76. Please try re-compiling or re-installing
the module (for instance, using `npm rebuild` or `npm install`).

Once again the released package is in trouble, as can be seen in the image of the link below.


OS: ArcoLinuxB-deepin v20.2.12 Kernel: 5.5.4-arch1-1

@Serial Manjaro has their own fully supported Etcher package, available here: I recommend using that package, as this package is only intended for/supporting Arch Linux.

Hello people

I tried to install the new version of balena ecther on manjaro-Deepin 18.1.5 and it doesn't install, with the following error messages:

npm ERR! A complete log of this run can be found in: npm ERR! /home/edson/.npm/_logs/2020-01-30T17_52_13_056Z-debug.log make: *** [Makefile: 97: electron-develop] Error 1 ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build ().      Aborting ...

gin078 commented on 2020-01-30 16:15

@Serial what WM/DE is that? I will try to reproduce locally and fix.

I hadn't seen that there was another update to the balena-etcher version 2: 1.5.72-2

After updating this new version the problem was solved.

The only detail I noticed is that the icon on the taskbar is electron and not Balena-etcher, as seen in the image below:

Serial commented on 2020-01-28 01:05

The print is from version 2: 1.5.72-1 that has a problem, where it updated this afternoon.

At least it is the most recent version that appears here in the AUR


Follows the requested:

cat /usr/bin/balena-etcher-electron


ARGS="--no-sandbox" if [[ $EUID -ne 0 ]] || [[ $ELECTRON_RUN_AS_NODE ]]; then ARGS="" fi exec electron6 "${ARGS}" /usr/lib/balena-etcher "$@"

gin078 commented on 2020-01-28 00:50

@Serial is this gif having updated already to 2:1.5.72-2?

If so, can you provide the output of cat /usr/bin/balena-etcher-electron please?
