Please remove 'freetube-git'.

'provide' and 'conflicts' should be the same as you do for VCS packages. See freetube-git and see ("..., you do not need to specify that conflicting package in your conflicts array.").

Very good development support. I has been request ability save subscriptions offline (without google account) and now it has this feature. Thank You Developers!

freetube-git is redundant.

Really love the project and really love the AUR (and especially @plague-doctor) for maintaining it!!

There is a new version available. If I can do more than point that out, please let me know ;)

You're on the hardened kernel, makes sense. Check out this wiki page if you want to be able to run Electron apps (or have any other containers, really) without having to start the sandbox binary as root (which is what you're doing when you set the suid bit on a file with root as the owner):

The freetube executable isn't in $PATH simply simply because that's not the case in the official packages either. :) The previous PKGBUILD was making a symlink from /opt/FreeTube/freetube to /usr/bin/, which is not quite where you're supposed to put it; if you really wanted it in $PATH, symlinking it to /opt/bin/ would be the right place ( but since Arch doesn't include that directory in $PATH, I decided to just leave it out.

Chmodding chrome-snadbox to 4755 did it. It now works from the desktop.

Anyway I'm using KDE Plasma on Wayland with the hardened kernel from the official repos. zgrep USER_NS /proc/config.gz : CONFIG_USER_NS=y # CONFIG_USER_NS_UNPRIVILEGED is not set

sysctl kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone : kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone = 0

If I might ask, why isn't it in the PATH anymore?
