@rebal28 What extension in particular are you talking about? Right now, the only supported extension that I know of is Privacy Redirect. Support for the other Freetube redirect extension was probably dropped, as the developer was only supporting it because Freetube wasn't in Privacy Redirect until recently.

Are there any solution to the firefox/chromium redirect extension?

just adding MimeType=x-scheme-handler/freetube; to the desktop file did not help.

it still gives me an error Unable to create io-slave. klauncher said: Unknown protocol 'freetube'.

@satcom886 It's not nonsense. The developer of FreeTube made it this way, that's all there is to it. He could have it like you said, but I don't specifically know if that change would be easy or not.

@icewind That dependency is very temporary, only to have a hacky patch to make searches work better since the modules were disrupted by a recent Youtube update. It should not be needed very soon.

I'm sorry if what I'm saying here is nonsense, I know almost nothing about JS and Electron.

Is it really necessary to download electron with npm? Why not have electron as a dependency. It's already a package in Arch...

requires git as makedepends (a git npm dependency is used)

some feedback :-)

@logos, you can take a look at both PKGBUILs. The -bin downloads a binary package, whereas this one downloads the tarball released source and builds the binaries fro that source. Not so relevant to your question, at this point the -bin AUR package is out of date, but nothing a PKGBUILD upgrade from the dev/maintainer doesn't solve...

What's the difference between this and freetube-bin package?

picokan commented on 2020-10-03 08:51

My mistake, I copied a lot from the freetube-git package and I forgot to change that.

Not that it bothers me, but why keeping git as a dependency, if this package thankfully uses the latest released tarball?
