I think the issue is:

We need to find a way to install on Manjaro/Arch as it is not available - see and

[manjaro@manjaro-gnome PowderPlayer]$ ./Powder
./Powder: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Tested with the latest stable Manjaro Gnome 18.1.5 fully updated:

[manjaro@manjaro-gnome PowderPlayer]$ uname -a
Linux manjaro-gnome 5.4.6-2-MANJARO #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Dec 24 15:55:20 UTC 2019 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I see the same error when I try to start this app, I am using the trade-free TROMjaro operating system (based on Manjaro stable) with the latest Linux Kernel:

Hello, my problem is the front-end looks white. It is impossible to use the program. Maybe some dependency is missing

Hey! Heads up, the icon seems to be missing.

EDIT: All fixed with the latest update. Cheers!
