The final vote. “What should be the pkgdesc of AUR/google-chrome?” With 82 votes:

● "One fast, simple, and secure browser for all your devices (Stable Channel)" - 17 votes (21%)
● "The popular and trusted web browser by Google (Stable Channel)" - 65 votes (79%)

Now, my deciding vote of 49 votes will be cast and the winner is...










..no, I’m kidding, I’m kidding. Pkgdesc changed. ^^

Can I simply just say what a comfort to find somebody that really knows what they're discussing on the internet You definitely understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More and more people really need to read this and understand this side of your story. It's surprising you're not more popular since you certainly possess the gift. https://www.papersjunction.co.uk

@tomrlopes When installing I've just used the package as is without changing anything (built in a freshly created Docker container). The CastLabs Demos are not working for me either. What does is the Bitmovin Player Demo [1]. On that page you also should see widevine EME detected and the video should be playable.

@ruario First I apologize I'm a noob. I have the file libwidevinecdm.so in /opt/google/chrome and in the aur git directory I use /home/tom/software/google-chrome/pkg/google-chrome/opt/google/chrome but the drm videos on https://demo.castlabs.com/ won't play.

@det good question. I don't have any power to clean those comments here though I'd prefer to keep the comments clean of spam and it seems there is no anti-spam measure in place to keep the bots out… :(

Det commented on 2019-09-04 09:09

How did spam like take over AUR since I left and there's nothing to be like done about it?

ruario commented on 2019-09-02 04:39

@tomrlopes That is not a problem. It has never been listed in chrome://components/ on Linux because it does not use the components mechanism to update on Linux. It is just a bundled file. Look for libwidevinecdm.so within the package. If you want to see if it is working, go to https://demo.castlabs.com and select one of the videos tagged with DRM.

No widevinecdm in chrome://components/

@yuu to enable dark mode just pass --force-dark-mode flag to the app

@TimOverboard, "trusted", because back when I maintained this thing the description used to be "An attempt at a faster, safer, more stable browser". Or something. Only so that the product would always stand on its own merit. Just, after a while people wanted change, so I made a poll and what-do-you-know this description won (see the very first pinned comment) :) (on top of which Chrome's got like 60% global usage share).

Either way, can't really see anything "inflammatory" about that, bro, nor does it somehow stigmatize luzifer as a troll to stick by a choice the majority decided on.

Description: The popular and trusted web browser by Google

The word trusted is unneccesary, subjective, promoting and inflammatory. Why would you state this as a fact? You are troll, yes? I sincerely hope so because the alternatives actually ruin my day.

I don't care how much longer you've been using arch and/or Linux than me.. just sort this out will you. It's grossly offensive to see it in my AUR search results.
