The GUI label is intentionally 2.2.4, this is related to it being a Linux-only launcher update, sorry if this causes any confusion

Note: It is important to keep PGP signature verification enabled, because this PKGBUILD does not verify sha256sums due to Jagex frequently releasing rebuilds with the same version number.

Don't forget to import the Jagex PGP key if installing for the first time:

gpg --keyserver hkps:// --recv-key AAC9264309E4D717441DB9527373B12CE03BEB4B

@leo_sk: Was it just that one library, not any others? What AUR helper are you using? Do you have a nonstandard Cairo installed?

I was getting the error:

Checking runescape-launcher dependencies...
Resolving dependencies...
Warning: cannot resolve "", a dependency of "runescape-launcher"
Failed to prepare transaction:
could not satisfy dependencies:
- unable to satisfy dependency '' required by runescape-launcher
Transaction cancelled.

So i removed line and it built successfully and works properly

I got error "missing" so I installed openssl-1.1 and that fixed it.

EDIT: This has been fixed, thanks to who did fix it.

Getting this error while building. Anyone know why this is?

Doesn't really work under Wayland (neither Xwayland), I get libEGL warning: DRI2: failed to create dri screen and it falls back to software rendering. Not sure if it's a Jagex problem or if there's something I could do on my end to get it working.

For those that get

'There was an error loading the game configuration from the website. If you have a firewall, check that this program is allowed to access the Internet. (7,28)',

When I was running /usr/bin/runescape-launcher, the creation of configURI inside wasn't resolving $(Language:0) correctly. I have yet to resolve this correctly however I have a current workaround.

TL;DR run:

mrgreenacid -- Thanks for your suggestion. Switching to the LTS kernel somewhat improves performance, but it is by no means as smooth as it was when I started playing again several months ago.

sudoforge - I also experienced this issue after updating yesterday. I switched to linux-lts which resolves the issue for now.

Performance has completely and utterly tanked for me after a recent system update. Running around invokes heavy CPU spikes and stalls the game client.

Is anyone else experiencing this?
