@fasterthanlime It seems you were right... I tried one more time to install it and it worked... I live in one of the crappiest countries in the world, so yeah, my Internet connectivity is far from good. Anyway, thanks for the feedback, at least now I know I have to be more patient and try several times during the day when installing some packages.

@tuqueque well, my other idea is that you're having a serious network connectivity problem.

The first logs you posted contained:

npm ERR! network request to failed, reason: getaddrinfo ENOTFOUND
npm ERR! network This is a problem related to network connectivity.
npm ERR! network In most cases you are behind a proxy or have bad network settings.
npm ERR! network
npm ERR! network If you are behind a proxy, please make sure that the

Unless the Itch client needs more than 7.8GB of space to compile/install... That's the space I have available in my /tmp folder.

Here's another snippet of the error I get... It looks different than before:
==> Validating source files with sha256sums...
v23.5.1.tar.gz ... Passed
==> Extracting sources...
-> Extracting v23.5.1.tar.gz with bsdtar

@tuqueque Looks like tar (called by npm) is having problems extracting files. Is your /tmp full by any chance?

Hey, I'm having problems installing the Itch client in my Manjaro Linux machine... I'm not very savvy, bit here are the logs:

This is the log directly copied from the Pamac install window:

This is the log from the generated log file "2017-11-08T14_20_53_647Z-debug.log"

'Hope this helps.

itch v23.5.1 was just published, it depends on npm>=5.5.1 which doesn't have the prune problems many have encountered earlier.

Upgrading is strongly recommended as we've had to upgrade the login endpoint and older versions will stop working eventually (in cases where filling out a captcha is required).

v23.5.1 also ships with electron 1.6.15, which fixes many small issues in the Chromium component, including security issues. See for details.

Thanks for your patience everyone!

Quick update on the state of this package:

- I was hoping to ship itch v25 quick enough
- In the meantime, many users just 1) didn't update itch or 2) switched to `kitch` (the beta build)
- Since v25 is taking so long, I'm going to ship another point release of v23 tomorrow (monday november 6th), fixing the arch package (since we found a workaround in the meantime)

Note that the build broke because of an npm upgrade, and that v23.4.2 contains 0 changes for Linux, only windows (so it didn't matter that it was outdated)

@fettouhi you have to change the SHA256 checksum in PKGBUILD to 422651ae84d53c82136af8f27bb77ff37d69916cc5ddde42cdb9e54cbf193fc9

(the checksum of the github archive changed for unknown reason)
