Today's glibc update included the fix for this issue. Thanks @nallekarhu and @Eschwartz for finding it.

The testing version of the glibc package ( contains a temporary patch to mitigate this ( As soon as that lands we should be good.

You can patch the binary with glibc-2.27 as a workaround.

mkdir /opt/glibc-2.27
sudo tar xf /var/cache/pacman/pkg/glibc-2.27-3-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz -C /opt/glibc-2.27

sudo patchelf --set-interpreter /opt/glibc-2.27/usr/lib/ --set-rpath \$ORIGIN:\$ORIGIN/lib/:/opt/glibc-2.27/usr/lib/ /opt/keybase/Keybase

I'm experiencing the same issue with the GUI not showing. electron /opt/keybase/resources/app/ works for me.

@Eschwartz thank you so much for all the work you do around these packages. (@nallekarhu you were totally right.) I'm away from work for a few months, so my response times are longer than usual on issues like this.

electron /opt/keybase/resources/app/ seems like the workaround until is fixed. In the longer term, I agree with @Eschwartz that depending on system electron is the right play. (One of the frustrations there is that distros other than Arch will probably still need to ship the electron binaries, since we can't depend on their system packages being recent enough.)

eschwartz commented on 2018-08-07 18:13

Okay, the problem is that using prebuilt electron binaries is somehow breaking since the glibc 2.28 update. See

Also if you use the keybase-gui package I maintain in [community] you will not have this issue (although you might have other issues like which I have submitted pull requests to fix, but without luck).

I'm running into this issue as well, I've even tried reinstalling the electron package with pacman then rebuilding and installing this package.

Running /opt/keybase/Keybase results in a seg fault whereas electron /opt/keybase/resources/app/ works

eschwartz commented on 2018-08-07 17:22

Can you try running both:



pacman -S --needed electron
electron /opt/keybase/resources/app/

@oconnor663 the problem started right after updating to linux 4.17.12-arch1-1 this morning. We actually have two computers with linux 4.17.12-arch1-1 having the problem and a third Arch still with linux 4.17.11-1 that shows no problems. But I filed a bug with Keybase on Github nevertheless.

@nallekarhu that might not be Arch specific. Could you file a bug with the regular Keybase project please?
