spellcheck on this seems to be partially broken compared to the official, untouched discord. it does show the red underlines but it does not show suggestions

Nevermind, since I'm using the electron-ozone package, I think I just need to compile the latest version with the icu68 patch and it will use icu 68 from core.

I had the same issue as @solace but discord was looking for version 67 of the lib. Since there's no icu67 package, I've created one, installed it and now discord runs.

My error was

electron: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

So if you're having the same problem as me, you can add icu67 to your dependencies.

Newest electron update (electron6-6.1.12-3) breaks discord electron. Discord fails to open. This is the output I get when I try to run it: electron: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

@fadedave Facing a simillar issue, seems to be releated to arch's electron update and betterdiscord. Looking through the electron dev console there is always an error saying:

Unable to load preload script: /home/$USER/.config/discord/0.0.13/modules/discord_desktop_core/injector/betterdiscord/preload.js

Removing betterdiscord fixes the issue.

Unfortunately Im not proficient enough in js to figure it out from there. Anyone have ideas?

Launching discord_arch_electron, I get the error message "Your installation is very out of date", and it doesn't let me use discord. The same version of the official app works fine.

As ChrisLane suggested, I got discord to launch by editing /usr/lib/discord to the following:

exec electron /usr/lib/discord/app.asar.unpacked $@

Would it make sense to rename this package to discord-arch-electron from discord_arch_electron just for naming conventions? ngl the underscores are annoying me a bit

Run discord using electron /usr/lib/discord/app.asar. However the /usr/bin/discord was updated to reflect this change as far as I can see.

The problem was that /usr/lib/discord/app was renamed to /usr/lib/discord/app.asar

Hi, I'm getting this error since the last update. Any there any known fixes?
