Thanks for the packaging :) Would be great to add MimeType=x-scheme-handler/freetube; to the desktop file as it's required in order to use the Firefox extension which uses the freetube:// url scheme.

freetube came up with this error after installing with yay on latest arch:

freetube-bin: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Program works after installing libxss from the extra repo. I suggest we include it as a dependency by default.

Thank you belara and plague-doctor. You both fixed it. Very nice.

I reverted to the failing state before trying your update. It seems to do the trick! Thanks for your work on this.

A fix has been pushed. (I hope it's a fix...)

I'm running Manjaro 18.0.4. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

plague-doctor commented on 2019-06-15 06:36

What OS are you on? I cannot replicate this on my Arch...

@0000000011111111 I received the same error. This fixed it for me:

sudo chown root /opt/freetube-bin/chrome-sandbox

sudo chmod 4755 /opt/freetube-bin/chrome-sandbox

Rather than run without sandboxing I'm aborting now. You need to make sure that /opt/freetube-bin/chrome-sandbox is owned by root and has mode 4755. fish: “freetube-bin” terminated by signal SIGTRAP (Trace or breakpoint trap)


ls -l /opt/freetube-bin/chrome-sandbox -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 5185424 Jun 14 21:50 /opt/freetube-bin/chrome-sandbox

What's going on?

In Manjaro GNome it works well, but the icon is not visible in the Dash To Dock, neither is possible to add it to favourites.
