I thought of that when you mentioned the previous problem. The games group is typically meant to be assigned to users that are allowed to run games (by policy decisions in an org), as well as modifying state files in /var/games. It's very rare that any package in Arch actually follows this, possibly just because the use case for Arch rarely involves the sort of corporate workstation set up that distros like Debian and RHEL are better suited to.

it was the original intention of firestorm-bin a few years ago, before I adopted the package, but was broken in the mean time. Even in my own PKGBUILDs, firestorm-bin is the only one that currently obeys the model. I'm inclined to just update it and stop requiring this.

I've got to ask, what is the purpose of using the games group? I have about 100 games on my computer and Firestorm is the only program that uses this group.

Are you in the games group?

The newest update is giving the error "/usr/bin/firestorm: Permission denied". It seems all executables are set as non-executable.

The launcher bundled with Firestorm attempts to locate necessary graphics drivers in a large set of directories, but Arch ships them in a different location. Below is a diff file that one could use to patch the firestorm launcher, located in /opt/firestorm.

Alternatively, just add ":/usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri:/usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri" to the 2 appropriate lines in the launcher file yourself; they aren't hard to find.

BEGIN firestorm_patch.diff:

< export LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH="/usr/lib64/dri:/usr/lib32/dri:/usr/lib/dri:/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/dri:/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri"
---
> export LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH="/usr/lib64/dri:/usr/lib32/dri:/usr/lib/dri:/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/dri:/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri:/usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri:/usr/lib32/xorg/modules/dri"

< export LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH="${LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH}:/usr/lib64/dri:/usr/lib32/dri:/usr/lib/dri:/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/dri:/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri"
---
> export LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH="${LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH}:/usr/lib64/dri:/usr/lib32/dri:/usr/lib/dri:/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/dri:/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri:/usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri:/usr/lib32/xorg/modules/dri"

END firestorm_patch.diff

I've verified that firestorm launches with this modification.

I am able to install but the program will not run. I think this error is the culprit and I am unable to figure out how to fix it:
libGL error: unable to load driver: swrast_dri.so
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast
Thanks

should this not depend (at least optionally) on lib32-webkitgtk2 for the built-in browser or am i missing something else?

So this is probably something more related to my system. But i formated my system last night and after installing firestorm again it will not load. I get Bad window(invalid window parameter). I run openbox as a WM with latest nvidia drivers. Any ideas? All worked fine before EDIT: I think this might have to do with having both the Proprietary Nvidia driver and Nouveau installed...will update..EDIT2: The problem here was having mesa-libgl installed instead of nvidia-libgl thank you for posting this to AUR and keeping it updated
