I think the package multilib/lib32-gst-plugins-good should be added as a requirement (or optional) to have voice support. Can this be added on the installation?

Hello folks. I face some issues with voice. Both on others listening to me and me listenning to the others. If I remove pulseaudio-alsa it works but with too much noice (even if I have enabled the noice cancelation which by the way works out of the game.) If I remove pulseaudio as well it works with less noice. Is there anyway to make it work with both with pulse-audio alsa and pulseaudio installed so I can use the pulses noice cancelation?

Thanks in advance.

Edit Playing arround with wine and installing an optional dependency fixed the problem! For those who have problem with voice lib32-libpulse did the trick!!

It would be nice to have a MimeType entry included in the desktop file to be able to open secondlife:// urls.

Hello chungy, little side note:

Possible to add conflicts=('firestorm' 'firestorm-nightly' 'firestorm-beta') to your PKGBUILD ?

Would be great for people trying different versions of Firestorm.

Best regards.

Thx for your contribution, chungy !

For interested people there is an aur package, where you can reproducable build the latest official Firestorm release from source:

For the bleeding edge development version of Firestorm you can also try the Nightly, which can be also selfcompiled from source:

Has anyone use their desktop's mouse theme in Firestorm? Is it even possible? Any ideas?

Seems like you just need to remove ~/.local/bin from your $PATH environment variable.
