@chrrybmb I saw this, but I haven't added it as a dependency because I can't replicate it. Even when I compile and run freetube without ttf-liberation it runs without any of the text glitches in that issue, so I'm not completely convinced that it is the cause.

ttf-liberation should be added as a dependency.

@yochananmarqos Thank you, I changed the commands and removed the npm dependency.

@sp1cyf0x That doesn't look like a Freetube specific error, can you check that the file /usr/lib/ exists?

I'm getting /usr/lib/electron22/electron: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory after electron 22.3.25-2 update.

@picokan: This does not use npm, only yarn.

  export YARN_CACHE_FOLDER="$srcdir/yarn-cache"
  yarn install
  yarn run build

I thought electron20 was still an officially supported package in Arch, but I guess not :\. I'll update it to electron22 which is what the git release is using. Not officially supported by Freetube, but it should work.

@reclusivesage, actually one can rebuild freetube, without changing its version, and furthermore the latest plain electron, which is in fact electron25 (25.2.1-1), builds and runs fine freetube. So there's no no need to install non official stock electrons for freetube.

Electron is a mess, and issues with versions proliferate across all electron AUR apps.

I had an error about a missing Chromium/Electron 20 .so missing, which prevented FreeTube from starting, so I fixed it by installing electron20-bin from the AUR. (Updating the OS to update Chromium won't fix this FreeTube issue.)

This will suffice until FreeTube upgrades to a currently supported version of Electron.

Ok, I though these kind of switching to the fixed branch of a package would be solved without manually dealing with it. Nothing broken then!
