So when the package never gets updated upstream, and never works on Arch again, it's still up to date? Yeah, no.

But I've gone ahead and found a fix that might suit your minimal effort standards.

beaker-browser-0.8.0-prerelease.7-x86_64.AppImage --appimage-extract

move the entirety of squashfs-root to /opt/beaker-browser

modify /usr/bin/beaker-browser thus:

# Launch AppImage application
/usr/bin/electron /opt/beaker-browser/app/resources/app.asar

Add electron to the dependencies. Install other files as normal.

If I can do something to the AppImage to fix the issue that you are experiencing I will gladly do it. I have no interest in building this app from source.

Again, this package is not out-of-date so please stop flagging it as such. An AUR package is out-of-date when there is a more recent release from upstream. It is not the case here.

I do have a valid email address, and it is attached to this account.

You do realize you can just leave it flagged out of date until upstream provides a fix? Saying "It's up-to-date with upstream" is disingenuous. Upstream is also out-of-date.

Not to mention the fact that beaker-brower (sans -bin) is flagged out of date, and a rather old version, and I see no evidence that they actually build it themselves.

If you want to talk about ways to make the -git branch of this package, hit me up, I have ideas.

@pegasus who keeps flagging this package out of date but does not have a valid email address to discuss the issue:

This is a "bin" package that is up to date with the binary release (AppImage) on the beaker browser github site. There is nothing I can do to fix the issue that you are experiencing but wait for a new binary release from upstream.

There is a beaker-browser package on AUR that seems to build the package. They should be able to accommodate a patch if one exists.

Yes changing that variable doesn't seem to affect the appimage.

jeancf commented on 2018-08-16 18:43

I added export ELECTRON_PATH=/usr/bin/electron to the launch script but it should not make a difference as the AppImage does not have an external dependency on electron.

Related issue with at least a fix for running from source

jeancf commented on 2018-08-16 18:10

There is not much I can do to help. This package simply installs the .AppImage package from the beaker browser github site. An AppImage is supposed to be fully self-contained with no external dependencies.

Can you try downloading and running the AppImage from and check if it also segfaults?

Getting the same issue on my other computer. It's worked on both computers before.

I am not experiencing any issue myself (Manjaro/Cinnamon). Has the latest version ever worked on your machine?
