Hi everyone - thanks for the comments. I've gone ahead and (temporarily) bumped the electron down to electron10 in the repositories to work around this.

In case you upgraded and did not keep the old version around, check out the archive https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/e/electron/ download both 11.1.1 files. Then install with pacman -U /path/to/electron-11.1.1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

@mvdan It is indeed electron 11.2.0 to blame. Downgrading to 11.1.1 fixed the crash.

Adding to what others said. The upgrade of community/electron to 11.2.0-1 is most likely to blame.

After a repository update I just did, Discord seems to not want to start for some reason I can't discern. It attempts to but then doesn't.

It checks for updates then just closes.

Is it possible to get notifications to appear as "Discord", not Electron?

https://i.imgur.com/vFaVADj.png is how the notifications appear under KDE.

EDIT: it was caused by firejail. My config was to start every program by firejail with onetime setup #firecfg. After cleaning the entries with firecfg --clean discord started without any problem. Although one or two months ago, I was able to start discord with firejail enabled.

My discord will not start. When I use the .desktop file, nothing happens.

Typing discord in terminal and I will get this:

Would it be possible to fix the naming convention of the running progress, in order to better support Beautifuldiscord?

It looks for the running executable, normally named 'discord', but this package makes it run under electron. The tag under ps -eo comm=, is what I believe to be the trigger.

@Kyuunex there is a temporary solution. If you highlight the entire word before you right click on it, the spellchecker will show suggestions.
