✔ NOTE. If the sha512sums don't match, there's a new version. Simply flag the package.

You can check for new Linux releases in:, or use:

$ curl -sL | gzip -df | tr ' ' '\n' | grep -e name= -e ver= | cut -d '"' -f2 | sed 'N;s/\n/ /'

For new MD5: $ curl -sL | sed -n '16p'

Ok, don't yell(?!) about the font, it's a virtual dependency, provided by any font package you have. It means you need some of them.

Did you try with a clean profile or debugging the app? If you haven't replaced the dependencies with AUR versions that might not work, try renaming the folders ~/.config/google-chrome-beta and ~/.cache/google-chrome-beta.

Also noticed this package depends on ttf-font, which doesn't seem to exist any more?!

Am I the only one? I tried completely removing and re-installing. It happened with the 46.0.2490.22-1 version as well. I'm running stable now and it's working fine (so are Firefox, Chromium, and Vivaldi). Nothing in the forums.

That's always the reason.

The reason the checksum fails is because there is a new beta release.

(line 8)
(line 29)
(line 30)

Yeah it does. There's a new one up. Check the link, it's static.

@Det this really doesn't say why the checksum fails :)

No, read the top of the PKGBUILD.

Is the checksum correct?
I'm getting:

==> Validating source files with md5sums...
google-chrome-beta_45.0.2454.46_amd64.deb ... FAILED
==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

Flags are now read directly from ~/.config/chrome-beta-flags.conf, while $CHROMIUM_USER_FLAGS is unsupported. Didn't bump the pkgrel.
