A shoutout to https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/discord_arch_electron/ (use that one if you want stable instead of canary!) :p

This is just a PKGBUILD based on the original discord-canary PKGBUILD and the discord_arch_electron PKGBUILD to use with Canary instead.

I'll keep it updated as I use Discord daily, so it'll bother me about it being outdated as soon as I turn on my PC :)

  • Confirmed working with Electron 9, 10 and 11 (and electron-ozone).

Its crashing kwin-wayland with linux-5.11 I can reproduce this by downgrading\updating kernel

Looks like they added Electron 11.2.3 to the repos. It works now! I might delete the discord-canary-electron10-bin package now.

@sperg512 Ah. It wasn't tagged on electronjs.org. Should've checked github haha

I'll update electron-ozone tomorrow. One less patch to mantain is always good. I guess electron will be updated in the upcoming days on the main repos.

@Kodehawa incredible lie https://github.com/electron/electron/releases/tag/v11.2.2

Kodehawa commented on 2021-02-03 18:48

@sperg512 11.2.2 hasn't been released yet, sadly. Should be fine once it released. I patched electron-ozone to include a fix. Maybe open a bug report to the arch guys so it could be backported to 11.1.1?

yeah i was also changing it myself, no worries there.

HOWEVER discord is now being insanely overweight, giving me a segfault when I launch! even after I updated electron and everything! hurray!

edit: actually, that segfault was caused by electron. I thought I had 11.2.2 since that was just released but on further inspection that is not the case.

I created a package named discord-canary-electron10-bin for now which is just this package but with electron10.

@sperg512 Download the PKGBUILD, and change the relevant stuff to what's here: https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/commit/?h=discord_arch_electron&id=430c1ca7b9fdb668a6c18db215b6f6c8f4c1d766

It's not really hard to do, but I do use it with electron 11. Would sort of defeat the purpose of it IMO. I patched the build of electron-ozone with a fix if you're interested so the latest electron-ozone works fine.

@Kodehawa you could just use electron10 for now I guess? or maybe just add a patch that people can apply that uses electron10

I will hold the update of Electron for now. When the upstream issue is fixed and a new release happens, I'll update it again.

Thanks for the info.
