It would be nice to have a MimeType entry included in the desktop file to be able to open secondlife:// urls.

Hello chungy, little side note:

Possible to add conflicts=('firestorm' 'firestorm-nightly' 'firestorm-beta') to your PKGBUILD ?

Would be great for people trying different versions of Firestorm.

Best regards.

Thx for your contribution, chungy !

For interested people there is an aur package, where you can reproducable build the latest official Firestorm release from source:

For the bleeding edge development version of Firestorm you can also try the Nightly, which can be also selfcompiled from source:

Has anyone use their desktop's mouse theme in Firestorm? Is it even possible? Any ideas?

Seems like you just need to remove ~/.local/bin from your $PATH environment variable.

Easiest firestorm installation ever in my Manjaro distribution, when installation ends it shows a checklist which indicates what it needs to be installed and what is already installed. Pepperflash is not working since a firestorm bug even if symlink (manually needed) is correct (worked until 5.0.11) Enabled aur package with pacaur for firestorm itself, the dependences were handled by internal Manjaro repositories

Thanks for the work on the package over the years! Seconding a request made lower down for scripts in /opt/firestorm/etc to be marked as executable (if possible?) For anyone else who can't open URLs externally from within Firestorm, try that.

I created the package firestorm-beta for who wishes to test the animesh version before it is released.
