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.

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

Of course. Thanks :)

lib32-nvidia-libgl is required by 64-bit systems with nvidia cards, could this be placed in optional deps? Thanks!

Firestorm has dropped the 64-bit release, at least temporarily. Even if it comes back, I may reconsider supporting it again until the beta tag is dropped. Sorry all.
