I created this package because acestream-engine was upgraded to a beta version and I wanted to stay on the stable one.

This is a more user-friendly package of AceStream Engine. It contains:

  • a desktop entry to launch the GUI from applications menu (you need to install pygtk and python2-libappindicator)

  • a service file to launch the engine as a systemd service (acestream user will not be shown on the login display manager)

This will be upgraded following only stable versions.

To start the engine, just select AceStream Engine from applications menu and an icon should appear in the system tray.

Alternatively, you could use the systemd service:

  • start it with sudo systemctl start acestream-engine.service

  • or enable it at boot, sudo systemctl enable acestream-engine.service

As system service there's no icon in the system tray, but the engine is launched in memory cache mode: cache data is stored into RAM rather than disk.

With the new openssl 3.0 on upstream, you need openssl-1.1 (also in upstream) for version 3.1.74 to work.

So install python37 from AUR, then download this package and replace PKGBUILD with this one.

Install the package, makepkg -sri. Then install the missing dependencies:

  • sudo PYTHONNOUSERSITE=1 python3.7 -m ensurepip --upgrade
  • sudo PYTHONNOUSERSITE=1 python3.7 -m pip install certifi PyNaCl pycryptodome apsw lxml

If you have python-pip from upstream, reinstall it (since python3.7 ensurepip had overwritten it).

p.s. It's working in memory cache mode as systemd service. For graphical mode I suppose you have to install PyGObject and PyQtWebEngine modules.

New version 3.1.74 for Ubuntu 18.04, requires Python 3.7, and also needs the following modules to run, that have to be installed via pip in Python 3.7: certifi PyNaCl pycryptodome apsw lxml PyGObject PyQtWebEngine

Anyway, when testing, keep in consideration you need also other modules listed in requirements.txt, like pycryptodome.

It's likely you need the 3.7 module. All python modules in upstream repo are 3.10. Until devs keep releasing on Ubuntu 18 this issues are never resolved. On Arch it's better to keep builds for even older python 2.7. At least they work.

I installed python37 and rebuilt this package from But still can't launch:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<entry>", line 9, in <module>
  File "core/Core.pyx", line 25, in
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'certifi'

python-certifi is installed.

New version 3.1.74 is out, but unfortunately it runs on python 3.7 which is old and not compatible with upstream 3.10.

Maybe python37 on AUR can be installed, but I can't test it on my system because of a key issue during install.

Otherwise there's still the version on python 2.7. No luck for Acestream on Arch.

Python2 removed from upstream. Please any volunteers, adopt this package and update it with the following PKGBUILD that has minimal dependencies on python2 packages having ony setuptools. apsw is extracted internally and copied under acestream folder lib.
