Hi guys, Not sure where my message has gone (I am pretty sure I posted here something yesterday but nothing is here), anyways I have a working version.

Before was fully broken, now I can get through the menu, up to breaking other stuff (nicely done software), I am testing another commit to see if a fresher version doesn't break all the UI.

Anyways, there are many issues building; the current version of npm has a nasty bug, you can find it here: https://github.com/npm/npm/issues/19989

The "fix" is that I install locally (within node_modules) a working npm version and use it for the build. I also have, some times, the same error while installing the non-broken npm!!! The only """tested""" way for me that """works""" is in my home directory (mine is a ext4 filesystem). I can't help with that. Consider that, if you survive to the first NPM install, you are good to go. Other options is to use an older npm available in the AUR (I recall there are npm4 and npm53).

Stay tuned!

The indie (vodo) tab does not display anything, then the app freezes.

Thanks for the update but its not working for me. The loading screen shows up briefly and then I get an empty black screen.

@Eschwartz thanks for the tip, didn't know of it. Will change the PKGBUILD accordingly. I won't do a version bump though, as there is no release change (it would just build the same).

Please don't set the npm cache like that, you have no guarantee you'll have a chance to reset it later on.

See npm help 7 config under "Environment Variables" and use

export npm_config_cache="$srcdir/npm_cache"

Same issue here. Previous version (0.3.10-3) still works perfectly. Something messed up in 0.3.10-4. Fortunately version 0.3.10-3 is still available as package popcorntime-bin.

pacman -Rnscu

Same issue! Stuck on startup. makepkg does many download and net-tools (vpn.ht) is somewhat suspisious. Is there any way of getting rid of all packages this makepkg installed? pacman -Rs popcorntime does only remove popcorntime itself.

Same issue: stuck also at startup. I succeeded in rebuilding the previous version (0.3.10-3) using npm4 instead of npm.
