You are free to report issues regarding the packaging here: be aware that sometimes the package will fail to build because of outdated upstream and updated dependency, which will require me some time to test and solve the problem; I do also have life stuff, packaging is a free-time activity.

Info regarding the package

The package uses the sources available at:

https://github.com/popcorn-official/popcorn-desktop

I am aware of the different clones and branches; I do still believe that this code is acceptable (not affected itself from malware).

As the nw.js toolchain provided by the PopcornTime team can not be proven as non-malware easily, this package uses the official nw.js toolchain provided here:

https://dl.nwjs.io/

and uses for additional codecs the prebuilt FFmpeg library provided here:

https://github.com/iteufel/nwjs-ffmpeg-prebuilt/

In addition, the PKGBUILD won't point to the 0.3.10 Git reference but will also include important commits, for e.g. security reasons or providers changes.

@servimo I suppose you launch the application through your application bar of KDE (I suppose it is your DE). Because of that, the app is started from kdeinit thus getting all the information present in your desktop session, thus also SSH. It's a guess, but I believe to be correct,

@ItachiSan: Works like a charm - thanks ;)

@everyone I am going to release a new version soon (tonight), so please bear with it; all the building issues will be fixed with it.

I can't install 0.3.10-8 because:

Validating source files with sha256sums... popcorn-desktop ... Skipped gulp-fixes.patch ... FAILED popcorntime.desktop ... Passed ==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

Got when upgrading 0.3.10-7 -> 0.3.10-8:

==> Validating source files with sha256sums... popcorn-desktop ... Skipped gulp-fixes.patch ... FAILED popcorntime.desktop ... Passed ==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check! ==> ERROR: build: failure on package popcorntime

Seems like the new gulp-fixes.patch has different sha256sum hash:

212a60c2c9f5cf5aa0e16a5c8baa511d5d63a2fd25945efa0c9056d97ab31d24

But it still fails in the end, even by fixing the checksum:

added 29 packages from 30 contributors in 24.728s patching file gulpfile.js Hunk #1 FAILED at 64 (different line endings). Hunk #2 FAILED at 83 (different line endings). 2 out of 2 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file gulpfile.js.rej ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare(). Aborting... ==> ERROR: build: failure on package popcorntime

The indie (vodo) tab does not display anything, then the app freezes.

Thanks for the update but its not working for me. The loading screen shows up briefly and then I get an empty black screen.
