I'd like to ask everyone to please refrain from discussing Discord TOS in the comments.

There is nothing in the Discord TOS mentioning (never mind forbidding) third-party clients like Ripcord, while there is wording against hacks of the official ones, like BetterDiscord. Some Discord employees have made off-hand remarks in fora, tweets and support email chains asserting otherwise but have always either failed to follow up with exact information when pressed or retracted their statements. We believe they mistook Ripcord for the likes of BD in good faith.

That said, while Discord Inc. isn't intent on preventing the use of Ripcord, accessing the service through it may increase your likelihood to get flagged for automatic bans in certain conditions. Notably, a number of such bans happened in late 2018 but, to my knowledge, were always rescinded upon appeal from the affected users. However, if your account is particularly valuable you may wish to stick to official clients to be safe.

Please allow this comment section to remain dedicated to technical issues with the package.

PGP KEY

The SKS infrastructure should not be considered secure and it is strongly advised to refrain from using it to retrieve any kind of information.

Instead of importing the PGP key for the package as usual by gpg --recv-keys, new users should access the developer's profile on Keybase, check his identity and follow the instructions shown by clicking on the key signature.

(the final command is omitted from this comment on purpose)

OK. If anyone comes with a similar problem of pacman not reading the keys correctly, here's how I got it working: Assuming keys were imported. Git clone with the link provided above. cd ripcord makepkg After it's done go to ripcord folder and double click the .tar.xz file so pacman can install it. I've never had this much headache getting generic errors.

@hugojmaia The import command works fine on Arch. Maybe Manjaro doesn't use gpg's keyring?

Push come to shove you can always build by hand passing --skippgpcheck to makepkg. But you should try not to.

So I did the instructions on Keybase to add the keys from Cancel and Pamac still errors out with: Ripcord-0.4.26-x86_64.AppImage ... FAILED (the public key ABBAD1CB484F53024CF5868B69332F9203F21F5C is not trusted) Which is Cancel's fingerprint.

I'm running manjaro btw.

This does violate the TOS just in the way it authenticates, the only way it would be allowed was if it used oauth, which doesn't provide enough access to an account to act as a client.

btw this Software does not violate the Discord Terms of Service, though they reserve the right to ban you at any time so you aren't safe (ever)

Illegal piece of software as it's against Discord's ToS.

Aanok commented on 2019-12-05 08:16

@ilikenwf Sure. It's done :)

Could you please sed the Ripcord.desktop file to remove the full path? I use firejail and have /usr/local/bin/ripcord setup but have to manually remove the path to the bin itself so that my firejailed binary is run instead.

Sorry for my late reply. Unfortunately, I also unfamiliar with QT inner workings.
