unfortunately, I cannot change the package name as there is another package with the same name that the maintainer refused to update for some odd reasons. hence why I created this port. the fix for now is to manually change the name in PKGBUILD while building it locally until that maintainer removes the out of date package.

EDIT: PKGBUILD has been updated.

Note: this ungoogled-chromium version is specifically created for Archlinux AUR and it is up to date with the original package from Eloston.

Warning: this package might not build if you have 4GB of RAM or less. It might take several minutes to build on systems with fewer CPU cores.

$ trizen -S ungoogled-chromium-archlinux and fixing the line about --ignore-whitespace outputs lines like

chromium-76.0.3809.100/third_party/harfbuzz-ng/README.chromium: Write failed
chromium-76.0.3809.100/third_party/harfbuzz-ng/OWNERS: Write failed

In the end chromium-76.0.3809.100/third_party/* results in an error which finaly ends withbsdtar: Error exit delayed from previous errors. Is there a permission problem somewhere? Until that point no privileges have been given.

Just remove the lines, it isn't needed anymore.

I manually fixed the typo, but then i hit a new error

patch: **** Can't open patch file ../../gcc-9-fix.patch : No such file or directory

bsdice commented on 2019-08-12 00:48

For anyone looking for a "quick" solution, try the following. On my machines package group "custom" is ignored for updates.

Edit /etc/pacman.conf: IgnoreGroup = custom

Bottom line imho here is, chromium is a decidedly quickly moving target, because Google is changing alot of code every month. Ungoogled patches have to keep up and will break basically every month, too. Worse, video acceleration will break when you just look at the browser at the wrong angle. In addition, there is no reliable, frequently updated, "ungoogled-chromium(-vaapi)" just yet. So in effect you can just as well build a new package yourself manually every month. It is the burden imposed on you for wanting freedom from Google. ;-)

Create script in ~/tmp in your home and build a working version with working VAAPI acceleration:

!/usr/bin/bash -e

N="ionice -c3 nice -n19 chrt -i 0"

SCRIPTPATH=$( cd "$(dirname "${BASH_SOURCE[0]}")" ; pwd -P )


rm -rf ungoogled-chromium-archlinux

git clone

cd ungoogled-chromium-archlinux

sed -i '/^pkgname=ungoogled-chromium/a groups=(custom)' PKGBUILD

$N makepkg -Cf

mv ungoogled-chromium*.pkg.tar.xz "$SCRIPTPATH"

cd ..

rm -rf ungoogled-chromium-archlinux

Seconded about the typo. It's easy enough to fix on our end but not so much if we update all our aur packages with yay. :(

kronikpillow commented on 2019-08-11 12:24

dude ... fix the typo already ... there is a typo in the pgkbuild that says igonre-whitespace instead of ignore-whitespace

anodium commented on 2019-07-30 06:11

@youngunix Typo in the PKGBUILD, please fix when you get a chance!

bsdice and others, for quite some long time in Eloston's github a guy had been making ungoogled chromium binaries for Arch Linux, just download and "pacman -U". To add, the ungoogled-chromium-bin package, using these same binaries, has been restored.
