After a chat with @Zoddo and me just taking too long to come back to this, there should everything now be included that was in my old discord-electron package some migrated from (Krisp patcher, Wayland, autostart fix). Additionally I replaced the scrappy rizin patcher with a Python script someone from the nix community kindly made available.
Instead of checking against a checksum to know whether the Krisp binary was patched the script is run on every start of the client that results in slightly longer start times but has the advantage that we don't have to update the package if Discord ever silently updates the binary between client updates over their modules api.

Starting with 0.0.26-1 (2023-03-31):
  • Switched back to the main electron package (electron22)
  • Watching cameras and streams is working again
Starting with 0.0.20-1 (2022-09-15):
  • Bumped electron16 to electron19 (I still have blocking issues with electron20)
  • Added support for $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/discord-flags.conf: this works like electron-flags.conf, you can set in this file the command line flags you want to pass to electron when running Discord (there are some useful flags in the wiki, especially if you are experiencing lag in the Discord UI).

Discord requires an update, but this package isn't yet updated
Check the wiki.

The Discord UI is lagging
Try to add the flags recommended in the wiki in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/discord-flags.conf.

Krisp not working
This is an issue that will likely never be fixed for this package. The Krisp module checks if Discord binaries are signed by Discord, which is not the case with this package.
See this comment and this GitHub issue for more details and possibles workarounds.

@DodoGTA: Thanks for the heads up, I've switched back the package to the latest electron.

electron31 works with this Discord package (so I guess the electron29 cap can be removed)

Hi guys awesome work. Is there a way to contribute to the package? Sometimes it takes one day to see the last updated version available and I see the maintainers blaming they are out of time

aliu commented on 2024-06-12 12:05 (UTC)

You guys realize there's a "flag package out-of-date" button, right?

@xFadedxShadow I am not sure about @Zoddo but I myself was busy all day and Discord had to update upstream while I was asleep. If it's about the update dialog that Discord annoys you with, you can simply put "SKIP_HOST_UPDATE": true into ~/.config/discord/settings.json as stated on the wiki and the pinned post.

This package is starting to get on my nerves with how slow updates are just make python3 / bash script and be done with it already

Yes, thank you. Working after deleting the discord.conf file now.

SunRed commented on 2024-06-09 23:36 (UTC)

@jesserockz My bad, I thought I tested that. Should be fixed now.

It seems the latest update has broken the launcher if someone doesn't have ~/.config/discord.conf

$ discord
/usr/bin/discord: line 17: PATCH_KRISP: unbound variable
