Thank you belara and plague-doctor. You both fixed it. Very nice.

I reverted to the failing state before trying your update. It seems to do the trick! Thanks for your work on this.

plague-doctor commented on 2019-06-15 06:45

A fix has been pushed. (I hope it's a fix...)

belara commented on 2019-06-15 06:43

I'm running Manjaro 18.0.4. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

plague-doctor commented on 2019-06-15 06:36

What OS are you on? I cannot replicate this on my Arch...

@0000000011111111 I received the same error. This fixed it for me:

sudo chown root /opt/freetube-bin/chrome-sandbox

sudo chmod 4755 /opt/freetube-bin/chrome-sandbox

Rather than run without sandboxing I'm aborting now. You need to make sure that /opt/freetube-bin/chrome-sandbox is owned by root and has mode 4755. fish: “freetube-bin” terminated by signal SIGTRAP (Trace or breakpoint trap)


ls -l /opt/freetube-bin/chrome-sandbox -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 5185424 Jun 14 21:50 /opt/freetube-bin/chrome-sandbox

What's going on?

In Manjaro GNome it works well, but the icon is not visible in the Dash To Dock, neither is possible to add it to favourites.

Anyone considering installing this ought to be aware the version listed here as of 2019-04-18 (0.5.2) is broken and won't play videos, but it's been fixed in 0.5.3.

@plague-doctor I think @SpotlightKid makes a good point about appending -bin to this package name. Also, thanks for maintaining.
