To make the IDE work better with Wayland it might make sense to add flags as a config file like visual-studio-code-bin does.

I have modified /usr/share/arduino-ide to look like this instead of a symlink to the arduino-ide exectuable in /opt



# Allow users to override command-line options
if [[ -f $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/arduino-flags.conf ]]; then
   ARDUINO_USER_FLAGS="$(sed 's/#.*//' $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/arduino-flags.conf | tr '\n' ' ')"

# Launch
exec /opt/arduino-ide/arduino-ide "$@" $ARDUINO_USER_FLAGS

After installing, the ide crashes at start:

[178335:1003/] The SUID sandbox helper binary was found, but is not configured correctly. Rather than run without sandboxing I'm aborting now. You need to make sure that /opt/arduino-ide/chrome-sandbox is owned by root and has mode 4755.

The file is already owned by root:root, just chowning it 4755 did the trick, the IDE worked afterwords.

This should be done by the package.

I've finally gotten it to work, my problem came mostly from the fact that I had a strange setup with my $PATH variables, I didn't have /usr/bin (my arduino-ide binary install location) added to $PATH, all I had to do was run that as user from there and got it working. Thank you for your help.

$ which arduino-ide /usr/bin/arduino-ide

I cannot start arduino-ide as user and must use

@chasekosborne about which output it says /usr/bin instead /usr/sbin so I guess you modified your PATH

About you can't launch it as a user; you haven't posted the error (can't help you about running as sudo, I will not try that)

So I've finally had more time to look into this, and to answer your question I had done a clean install and had not modified any of the files. On a clean install the

$ which arduino-ide

gives me this output, which is better. However I cannot start arduino-ide as user and must use sudo arduino-ide --no-sandbox To get the program to start. Even more interestingly I get a new error.

Failed to connect to the bus: Could not parse server address


Authorization required, but no authorization protocol specified

So at the moment I have made progress but am unsure how to proceed from here. As I get a window to pop up but none of the GUI loads. And I'm just stuck with a white screen from here.

That is correct, and thank you for the help. To explain a little more on that it was the default install location when I used the makepkg -si command.

If you put it manually is not makepkg or pkgbuild fault, the pkgbuild always installed in /opt/ for what I see

However I typically contain all of my cloned AUR packages inside an Applications folder in my Home directory. Granted, I have no idea if this is proper file management, I just haven't had problems with doing so until now. If this happens to be the case, how should I go about correcting this problem?

FabioLolix commented on 2023-09-22 20:37 (UTC)

$ which arduino-ide

This is the issue, this isn't where the package install, you put there manually?

Btw, to know if the file belong to a package use pacman -Qo /usr/local/bin/arduino-ide but with this will be empty I guess

$ ldd /opt/arduino-ide/arduino-ide | grep libffmpeg => /opt/arduino-ide/ (0x00007f1e6e600000)
$ which arduino-ide

Are my respective inputs and outputs.

@chasekosborne you output of:

$ ldd /opt/arduino-ide/arduino-ide | grep libffmpeg => /opt/arduino-ide/ (0x00007f4f59800000)

$ which arduino-ide

btw please use backticks for quoting text, 3 above, 3 below, other wise in the email message I get <p> </p> <pre><code> etc which is making it a bit harder to read
