Hello, kiyui, thanks for maintaining it. Please can you modify the PKGBUILD like it:


  • Remove hardcoded version from sources, that way you only need to modify pkgver once a new version is released.
  • Do not create unneeded dirs wirh install. Since that tar already creates the needed directories there isn't need to recreate them.
  • Move from sha256sums to sha512sums.

Regards, Ed

Would there be a way to make this work with the system installed electron instead of its own built in version? Would at least be useful for people running on wayland with electron-ozone.

I got the following error when starting Lbry from terminal. Any ideals what could be the problem.

Starting SDK Sandbox listening on port 5278. Daemon: [3117] Failed to execute script cli

Daemon: Traceback (most recent call last): File "", line 1273, in mkdir FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/run/media/chaiwat/LBRY and Storage/LBRY'

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

For easier version bumps, please replace the source var with:

Now that you provide a symlink to the "lbrynet" executable, could you add provides=('lbrynet')? I have a standalone package for it named 'lbrynet-bin'.

Trying to launch lbry from the terminal, I get this error

I got a following when I started the app:

    lbry: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

It was resolved by installing libxss

    sudo pacman -S libxss

Somebody should add it to list of dependencies, as lbry clearly can't run without it.

Thank you for the update, and for adding the link @kiyui !

Kr1ss commented on 2020-07-17 20:19

@kiyui @kcseb Would you mind adding

ln -s /opt/LBRY/resources/static/daemon/lbrynet "$pkgdir/usr/bin/"

to the package() function, so that we can use the lbrynet tool without augmenting the search path or changing the current directory ?

I get this error on startup.

Daemon: /opt/LBRY/resources/static/daemon/lbrynet: error while loading shared libraries: failed to map segment from shared object

Same error message as SleepingFox commented on 2020-04-01 21:01. But I started it for the first time.

Edit: The Problem was that my /tmp was mounted on RAM. tmpfs /tmp tmpfs defaults,noexec,nosuid 0 0 (fstab). There is a similar problem with signal-desktop app
