There have been made some changes in ungoogled-chromium and there now is a separate git repository handling archlinux packaging and building. There are some concerns about the decisions that must be done reguarding the versioning scheme in paritcular. You could read about it in details here . I've always followed upstream versioning because that was ideal, also for AUR PKGBUILD, but now, as already stated, some concerns have been risen. I'm honestly a bit confused and it's not very clear to me which solution would be better to adopt. I would like to know your opinion in merit, what this community thinks about it and I encourage and very much appreciate any direct involvement from anyone interested on github repo and issue.

Please do NOT flag this package as out of date in relation to official chromium releases.

This is NOT Google Chromium and new releases come after additional work of the ungoogled-chromium contributors, so they may not be ready, nor available for days or even weeks after a new version of official chromium is released.

Please refer to for ungoogled-chromium releases. Use those and please flag this package as out of date only if a newer release is present there. I will update the PKGBUILD as soon as I can every time a new release comes out.

Uncle how heavy, all night and all morning building and compiling to use this browser, can you tell me a way to install it faster, I can't be like that a new update will send me the same time, How grotesque not to upload an already built file.

If you give me any clues on how to download the installer already built, I don't repeat this again, I would appreciate.

I have made an OBS build for this package

You are welcome.

you have to add all missing dependencies to your depends array in your PKGBUILD. Like, ALL of them. Check my PKGBUILD, it should have all the required dependencies.

@JstKddng i did that, and now i have this

you have to setup the Arch repositories. There should be Arch/Core, Arch/Extra and Arch/Community.

I had to explicitly set LIBVA_DRIVER_NAME=nouveau in /etc/environment. My self-built ungoogled-chromium works great now! Thanks again

treeshateorcs commented on 2020-01-17 05:25


yep, i only get these

[79551:79551:0117/] InitializeSandbox() called with multiple threads in process gpu-process. [79551:79551:0117/] [.DisplayCompositor]GL ERROR :GL_INVALID_OPERATION : glBufferData: <- error from previous GL command

you may want to install the vaapi drivers. look up hardware acceleration on the wiki

cerberusec commented on 2020-01-17 05:22

Is anyone else getting this error when starting chromium?] vaInitialize failed (ignore if using Wayland desktop environment, refer:(Github)akarshanbiswas/chromium-vaapi/issues/7): unknown libva error

treeshateorcs commented on 2020-01-17 05:06


could you please tell me what's wrong with my build?

i see "nothing provides ninja, nothing provides quilt" but you somehow got it working. how?
