betterdiscordctl's injection problems have been fixed with v2.0.0.

betterdiscordctl is outdated and not official. Please consider using the official appimage installer (no root, run once and delete, then it auto updates) at, or the -installer AUR package.

Those solutions suck. Use PTB until Discord breaks that too or BBD is fixed.

Honestly, here's the best solution: just switch to powercord lol

It provides many more plugins, seems to be more developer friendly, and has an actual permission system for plugins. It also seems to have a more active development that BetterDiscord.

For anyone comming from the latest update and is using canary: BBD is broken with the canary branch of discord for the latest update. See this github issue comment for what happened.

But the TL;DR is that discord canary is now shipping with a custom build of electron which, in this commit here is now forcefully enabling some security options in electron that BBD needs to be turned off to be able to function. (Those options just basically allow it to access variables in places like the main window scope.)

For now, this is only for the canary version of discord. It may soon come to the full release or PTB versions.

Realised this PKGBUILD produces the wrong pkgver (1.7.0.r37.g785ad01-1) but it is the same commit as the release of 1.7.0, here's my fixed PKGBUILD:
