I have rechecked the binary of etcher again and changed the dependencies based on it on 1.5.79, hope dependency problems to be solved.

Hey @donbex I checked all binary dependencies for the etcher but there is no dependancy on polkit, although I don't know is that even possible to have no polkit installed? even lightdm is depending on it, so, can you not have a display manager and use etcher? Can you give me the output of ldd /opt/balenaEtcher/balena-etcher-electron.bin ? put it on Pastebin or something and give me a link, thanks.

Etcher fails without a polkit agent installed (e.g. when running a WM like XMonad):

/opt/balenaEtcher/resources/app.asar/node_modules/resin-corvus/src/resin-corvus.js:233 {"stack":"Error: No polkit authentication agent found\n    at Object.exports.createError (file:///opt/balenaEtcher/resources/app.asar/generated/gui.js:1577:17)\n    at Object.exports.createUserError (file:///opt/balenaEtcher/resources/app.asar/generated/gui.js:1616:18)\n    at file:///opt/balenaEtcher/resources/app.asar/generated/gui.js:8596:22","message":"No polkit authentication agent found","description":"Please install a polkit authentication agent for your desktop environment of choice to continue","report":false,"image":"archlinux-2020.01.01-x86_64.iso"}

Polkit should be added as a dependency, although I am not entirely sure of the best way to do so. Since they don't seem to have a common provides field, one could either add the agents from the polkit wiki page as optdepends, or maybe just add polkit as a dependency.

@flying-sheep thanks for bringing it on, it's removed now

electron doesn’t need gconf anymore. Please remove the dependency

@offlinehoster this package is directly downloaded from balena as you see in Sources section.

And it is working for me right now. Don't you get any log or error messages? Run it from terminal and try again, and take a look at journalctl for crash logs, it's weird that it is not working for you

This package is not working anymore. It stops after you type in your "superuser" passwd.

Downloaded the original file from balena directly is working fine.

Looks like 1.5.50 is out.
