I got the error:
"error while loading shared libraries: libnw.so cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

The popcorntime command only ran as root.

Fixed it temporarily by:
$ cd /usr/share/popcorntime
$ sudo chmod +44 -R .

This gave read access to all libraries and files within the directory. Now popcorntime works normally without sudo.

@314eter I get this when executing:
"error while loading shared libraries: libnw.so cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

Compiling directly from git works, probably something wrong in the build procedure here?

Should be fixed now.

Maintainers, could you please update/fix the PKGBUILD?

Popcorn-Time binary can only be run by root :/

After building this I cannot find the executable on my system, maybe the PKGBUILD needs a revision?

@guyzmo I suggest you check https://www.reddit.com/r/PopCornTime/comments/4bbxw4/popcorn_time_faq/ and https://www.reddit.com/r/PopCornTime/comments/47o4bz/is_there_any_truth_to_the_guy_who_claims_the/d0fpicf/.

As I've said in popcorntime-bin comments, the ones who try the hardest to convince and do so by fat-fingering and calling out a conspiracy hardly ever are the right ones...

Any insight on whether installing from this source code is safe enough?

it looks like the packaged windows version contains malware: http://popcorntime.ag/official-statement.html#Malware2

I haven't checked thoroughly myself, and did notice nothing wrong using this package. But I thought it'd be a good idea to have it refered here.

PKGBUILD needs to be updated:

"install: cannot stat 'popcorn-desktop/build/Popcorn-Time/linux64/libffmpegsumo.so': No such file or directory
install: cannot stat 'popcorn-desktop/build/Popcorn-Time/linux64/nw.pak': No such file or directory"
