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

I was able to fix the audio issues with pipewire by commenting out export PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=100 from /usr/bin/runescape-launcher and adding application specific properties to pipewire-pulse.conf

    # runescape 3 audio fix
    matches = [ { application.process.binary = "rs2client" } ]
    actions = { update-props = { pulse.min.req = 1024/48000 } }

I have the same audio issues - steam launcher works fine for me but it is a bit more laggy so I would prefer this one overall. Occasionally I could get it to launch without audio choppiness, but it was never consistent. I have tried setting the audio delay to 60, 100, 120, 200, none of them made a difference. I use pipewire for audio. I think when I was still using pulse audio I remember it working fine but with pipewire it is choppy. I haven’t verified this recently though.

The audio is really glitchy for me. Something to do with pipewire latency but not really sure. Couldn't resolve it so I went with steam/proton.

@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:
