Relevant when the game crash trying to run a second instance (multi-account) under Arch :

I haven't had that problem so far. Sometimes the loading screen gets stuck at 50% or 79% for me, but just closing and restarting the game fixes it for me. There are also some ankama/dofus-related cache files in ~/.config/ and ~/.appdata, and you could try if moving those changes anything.

I've got black screen at login (worked yesterday before the update). I tried unistalling, deleting /opt/amakna and /opt/adobe-air-sdk, reinstalling ... still doesn't work.
Any ideas ?

It probably wouldn't help now, I've manually copied my working (with no sound) share and transition directories from my home folder over the top of the /opt/ankama/dofus directories. Somehow this got it working and I now have sound! Woo.

@anonymousshyster: make sure you've copied to share/reg/bin/ too and it has execute permission.

If you pastebin the output of ls -lR /opt/ankama/dofus, it may help me figure out the permission problem.

I did try fixing the permissions myself, but that didn't seem to resolve the issue.

I ended up installing Dofus via the packages on the Dofus website, and using your transition.conf, script and the AUR package for AIR. This got the game running, however I do not have any sound. I've made sure that I'd installed the 32 bit alsa libs, and that my sound was working in other programs (it was), but still no sound.

> Seems that the share directory is getting created with the owner and group as my username
That's strange. The updater itself does not change ownership of files. It will either create files under your user and the "users" group, or under root:root if you use polkit to authorize it to touch root files. The PKGBUILD and dofus.install only sets everything under /opt/ankama/dofus/share/ to games group and group writable.

Does it work if you fix the permissions yourself?

Tried installing again, but am getting a different error this time.
"Operation Failed
Can't write /opt/ankama/dofus/share/reg/share/config.xml to disk"

I've checked and there is plenty of disk space available... not sure what to make of it, I am in the games group and the directory is writable by my user.

Seems that the share directory is getting created with the owner and group as my username, without write permissions to that directory. Something is messing up permissions, but I'm not sure what.
