git should be added to makedepends alongside npm.

Yep new version works after install, please update this AUR package for everyone else to benefit from the update :)

Hi New version available v0.21, running smoothly

https://webtor.io/ or else vlc-bittorent plugin works very good for simple torrents ;)

You also have the Flatpak version of webtorrent but it has also its issues (like not being able to use VLC as external player, or not being able to open torrent from outside your home folder..)

@fabianski, qBittorrent with sequential download is good enough for me.

fabianski commented on 2019-09-02 23:07

any good alternative for webtorrent?

I don't use WebTorrent anymore, but downgrading pango doesn't work for me. If someone wants to update the package, I can disown it.

Thanks for the finding. Would that be something needed to be reported to WebTorrent devs? EDIT: and it already was reported https://github.com/webtorrent/webtorrent-desktop/issues/1644 but closed. OK.

Downgrading pango to version 1.43 is a workaround for the error with segfault at launch (I only tested it with webtorrent-desktop-bin, but I assume it is the same here). Version 1.44 ended support for bitmap fonts as part of the transition to the HarfBuzz font loader, more info here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Fonts#Bitmap

Same here. Does not start...
