Fixed it by downloading the icu-64.1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz from the AUR and copying the /usr/lib inside the package into the same place in the system

maximbaz commented on 2019-04-13 19:06

kureta, I think it's the other way around, their Chromium tries to load icu64, but it is not present on their system :)

kureta commented on 2019-04-13 14:28

@ltorvalds024 please downgrade your icu version to icu63 until maximbaz compiles a new binary for us.

Chromium fails to start:
/usr/lib/chromium/chromium: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

@Mark1 I installed icu63 on aur packed by @dviktor and that doesn't conflict with any installed packages. It seems that everytime icu get updated, someone will put the older version of icu into AUR.

Anyway, thanks to @kureta for maintaining this package

Mark1 commented on 2019-04-07 18:33

@freefreeno it's the icu (63.1-2 -> 64.1-1), every time it gets an update the chromium-vaapi have to be updated too, else it can't launch.

@wan109020 I tried to install the older version of icu but it breaks the whole DE... Finally it got updated! thanks @kureta

I had the same issue and after upgrading it works now, thanks.

I have upgraded the binary from maximbaz's repository. Please test and let me know if this has solved your problems.
