@cladonia: Are you using musl? If not, and you are using glibc , which version do you have?

Here's the output of the librewolf-bin error:

$ librewolf /usr/lib/librewolf/librewolf: /usr/lib/ version `GLIBC_2.33' not found (required by /usr/lib/librewolf/librewolf)

The bin version doesn't work, the flatpak install librewolf command doesn't work, the AppImage doesn't work

No idea what's going wrong there – quite often build failures for Firefox/LibreWolf seem to be due to running out of memory, though. You might want to take a look at a few older comments in here.

Alternatively, something in your build environment might be off – building in a chroot ( might help.

Finally, instead of opting for the Flatpak release, there's also a -bin-release available in the AUR at, which might be preferable when running an Arch system :)


Looks like I'm getting slow ;) My comment was directed at @cladonia as well.

@cladonia: LibreWolf 85.0.2 compiles correctly for me (Artix Linux, Linux-Ck 5.10.16; ThinkPad T440p). Maybe check your setup?

It failed to compile

The details of the failure are as follows:

I will test flatpak :(

@lsf plasma-integration is just manage multimedia and notifications, but openSUSE patches make the browser better KDE integration like global-menu for example.

Thanks for spotting that – I must've forgotten to commit the updated file.

Should be fixed now over here as well!

When I try to build this package, I get an error:

[jayman@Jason-Desktop-Linux librewolf]$ makepkg

Here's how I avoided the error:

$ git clone
$ cd linux
$ makepkg

Hm, wouldn't the extension be sufficient for this? (I have no real idea – just asking to understand it better :)

If the patches would indeed be required: seems it could be relatively painless to include them as well (or at least to include them optionally), assuming they don't break things on non-KDE systems (or have privacy implications).

Would you care to open an issue for this on ? That would make it easier to track it and to discuss it with the rest of the team :)
