The GitKraken.desktop file should be as below. Otherwise authentication will fail with the following error on at least KDE.

Error: Unable to create KIO worker. Unknown protocol 'gitkraken'.

Fixed GitKraken.desktop:

Is the version correct for this? When I installed it via yay it seems to use 9.0.0-1 and then in the application it shows there's an update to 9.0.1.

yay -S gitkraken resolving dependencies... looking for conflicting packages...

Looks like version 8.10.0 has been withdrawn, according to the note at Maybe that's the actual issue?

So downgrading the package to 8.9.1 might fix the issues (if that's possible).

For me I worked around it by wiping the whole /opt/gitkraken folder and extracting into it, which likely is now 8.9.1 instead of the 8.10.0 from the package.

The 8.10.0-2 update does not fix the issue for me, still getting:

$ gitkraken 
libva error: /usr/lib/dri/ init failed
[97854:1012/] InitializeSandbox() called with multiple threads in process gpu-process.

isto commented on 2022-10-12 08:50 (UTC) (edited on 2022-10-12 08:51 (UTC) by isto) fixed the issue for me, master with chrome_crashpad_handler update (29ba0dfe4f2d3d93fe02a4a76e80458586220fe4) did not work (no error message, but gitkraken start hangs up)

There is now an update out for the chrome_crashpad_handler.

Tried to download the 8.10.0 binary and I can run it successfully

After a quick look around, I notice that /opt/gitkraken/*.so and /opt/gitkraken/chrome_crashpad_handler was not correctly as permission as 0755

Manually set permission for those files to 0755 make gitkraken start successfully

Hope the author updates the PKGBUILD to fix this

The 8.10.0 binary from also works, so this must be indeed connected to the package.

It doesn't work for me. Same error. I think downgrading to 8.9 is the only way for now, until Gitkraken fixes this. The steps shared by alorence worked nicely.

Anyway, since I really need this tool to work, I manually downgraded to 8.9:

git clone /var/tmp/pamac-build-${USER}/gitkraken-8.9
cd /var/tmp/pamac-build-${USER}/gitkraken-8.9
git checkout c89ab0e
makepkg -si

Hope this will help others, until the issue is solved
