If you are experiencing issues with the VPN then

  • flush the database and restart
  • disable the use of VPN in options and restart again

The movies list should now load properly

Hi there, gtk2 can be removed from the dependencies (already the case in popcorntime and popcorntime-git). Thanks!

Hi all!

I have an issue here. Everything works fine except for the subtitles. I have enabled them, set the language but it shows with a white box with an X. Made an opensubtitles account, but it can't connect.

Awesome, thanks!

Thanks, libcg – fixed.

I can confirm that the following code should be removed:

# Move library files to /usr/lib/popcorntime
install -d "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/${_pkgname}/${pkgver}"
mv "${srcdir}"/lib/* "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/${_pkgname}/${pkgver}"
rmdir "${srcdir}"/lib

install -d "${pkgdir}/etc/"
echo "/usr/lib/${_pkgname}/${pkgver}" > "${pkgdir}/etc/${_pkgname}.conf"

This fixes Firefox on Wayland and probably other programs that are loading the wrong libraries. Popcorntime still locates the libraries correctly in /usr/share/popcorntime/lib (checked with ldd). Please fix.

The forum post @michelesr was referring to was I guess (the link provided points to a 2016 thread).

There it was suggested to remove the following lines from the PKGBUILD:

install -d "${pkgdir}/etc/"
  echo "/usr/lib/${_pkgname}/${pkgver}" > "${pkgdir}/etc/${_pkgname}.conf"

and it fixed the problem for the affected user.

They remark that the non-bin package doesn't do that configuration thingy. Why is it needed here?

Also, does anyone have the "stuck on loading symbol" issue despite the updated version?

edit: Flushing the databases solved the issue, but made me loose my config and favorites list... Ugh.

WARNING: this package will install .so files that might interfere with Firefox running under wayland, making it very unstable. See: and

gh0stzk: AUR is based on git, so you just need to roll back one change using git. Or, you can even download that old PKGBUID via the “View Changes” link at the top right corner of this page. For your convenience, here is the direct link.
