Support for this software (Remote Desktop Manager) should happen on their forum:

Issues with the packaging should be reported here.

Hi, I'm one of the devs working on the Linux version of Remote Desktop Manager.

First of, thank you for bringing this to our attention. As it happens, the missing dependencies were alreading something that was being rectified in this new version, so you can expect them in the version releasing in the next few days (2024.1.1.2). As for the simplifications you suggested in the PKGBUILD, we'll look into that for future versions. We just want to avoid having to do any more rounds of tests seeing as this release is imminent.

The dependencies are incorrect, check the Debian control file. It appears they should be:

depends=('ca-certificates-mozilla' 'libsecret' 'org.freedesktop.secrets' 'vte3' 'webkit2gtk-4.1')
optdepends=('libappindicator-gtk3' 'lsof' 'xdotool')

You can drop the prepare() function and just do this:

package() {
  bsdtar -xvf data.tar.xz -C "${pkgdir}/"
  mv "$pkgdir/bin" "$pkgdir/usr/"

@tgm4883 thanks a lot! I fixed before your update the issue manually, now you did it too - very appreciated!

Looks like devolutions changed the name of that. I've updated the pkgbuild to be more inline with there deb packaging which should fix the issue.

faith_healer commented on 2024-03-29 16:12 (UTC)

almost every time I see an update of that package I get

sed: can't read /home/faith/.cache/yay/remote-desktop-manager/src/usr/share/applications/remotedesktopmanager.desktop: No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare(). Aborting... -> error making: remote-desktop-manager-exit status 4

even if I remove and install again with yay cache cleaning.

Cannot excute backup in the tab of File -> Backup

   at Devolutions.RemoteDesktopManager.Business.OnlineBackupDescriptor.Backup(BaseConnectionDataSource dataSource, String connections, Int32 entryCount, Int32 itemCount, Boolean manualBackup)
   at Devolutions.RemoteDesktopManager.Managers.BackupManager.ProcessTask(BackupTask task)
   at Devolutions.RemoteDesktopManager.Managers.ActionManager.ExecuteBackup()
   at InvokeStub_EventHandler.Invoke(Object, Span`1)
   at System.Reflection.MethodBaseInvoker.InvokeWithFewArgs(Object obj, BindingFlags invokeAttr, Binder binder, Object[] parameters, CultureInfo culture)

Meanwhile touch pad scroll and mouse scroll both do not work in RDP. By the way the SFTP and SCP session work, but it is really laggy when click to open the session. Otherwise when the SFTP or SCP session was opened, RDM takes a lot of memory resources(4.6GB) and CPU resources(some cores of CPU up to 90% which leads the fan really noisy), does it is the usual status?

Gotcha, I will post in the Devolutions forum. Thanks for pointing me the right direction!

I'm not having that issue on the latest version from Devolutions. It does look like they saw this issue in the flatpak version ( and fixes it but didn't say what the issue was. I would recommend making a post on their support forum

Has anyone else encountered issues with the most recent update? I installed it through Yay and encountered no installation issues, but when I attempt to launch the application, I receive the following errors:

$ remotedesktopmanager

shell-init: error retrieving current directory: getcwd: cannot access parent

directories: No such file or directory

chdir: error retrieving current directory: getcwd: cannot access parent directories: No such file or directory

Unhandled exception. System.DllNotFoundException: Unable to load shared library

'' or one of its dependencies. In order to help diagnose loading problems,

consider using a tool like strace. If you're using glibc, consider setting the LD_DEBUG

environment variable:

at Devolutions.RemoteDesktopManager.Program.Main(String[] args)

Aborted (core dumped)

Upon inspecting for, I noticed its presence but under slightly different

names as detailed below:

$ ls | grep lib


Despite attempting to rename the files to match the missing ones, the issue persists. Is there something I might be overlooking? I'm relatively new to Arch Linux (been using it for less than three days), and I'm wondering if there's a step I missed.

Thanks for the heads up @CPlusPandaGives, I've fixed this and bumped the release version. Devolutions is taking over the package management and adding this as part of the automation, so I've let them know this part was missed.
