@ahmedmoselhi, great that you take care of this package.

It is a very good idea to add the file to the PKGBUILD. However, it seems to me that it would be better and clearer if this file was downloaded directly from the author of this file from

It looks like you forgot to update the package sums in your last version bump.

Also, the .SRCINFO changes seem wrong.

You don't need to edit the .SCRINFO manually. You can use makepkg --printsrcinfo > .SRCINFO after you have updated the PKGBUILD.

  1. Go to
  2. Download ~Package(tar.xz)
  3. Copy slimjet_amd64.tar.xz to folder what you want and extract archive.
  4. Open terminal at folder slimjet
  5. Run script with a code ./flashpeak-slimjet
  6. Done!

This is fastest browser. (tested on Windows Starter 32-bit, Intel Celeron N3060, 2Gb RAM ) Now install it on Ctlos (

Current version : Slimjet Version (based on Chromium 98.0.4758.9) (Official Build) (64-bit)

@dalto Maybe you can try to use the *.tar.xz files,it seems that more stable,and not so many dependency files.

As the offical web page said:

"NOTE (for zip package): Extract the archive into any folder you choose. Run the wrapper script "flashpeak-slimjet" from the terminal for the first time to enable the sand box (admin access required). After that, you can run the wrapper script from a desktop shortcut."

My English is very poor,please ignore the wrong things.

After reading these linked articles, I don't see anything to worry about. This information from 2018 is mostly out of date (you can now use the Duck Duck Go search engine) and the Windows user mentioned there probably had some malware for Windows.

Slimjet has many advantages and it would be good if there was a slimjet package maintainer to update it to the latest version 33.

walkingstickfan commented on 2021-11-18 00:35 (UTC) (edited on 2021-11-18 00:41 (UTC) by walkingstickfan)

@beserkk: Okay, the second reference you provided is subjective in my opinion. Those users could have picked up the backdoor from the browser they used to download Slimjet or they may have picked it up beforehand and only noticed it after installing Slimjet. Additionally, all of the users were using Windows, not Linux.

Regarding the first reference that you provided, it appears that that user was also using Windows. Maybe it's a Windows thing?

If you have an account for the Slimjet forums, it would be interesting to see what the Slimjet devs response would be to your findings. I just searched the forums and didn't find anything.

walkingstickfan commented on 2021-11-18 00:11 (UTC) (edited on 2021-11-18 00:13 (UTC) by walkingstickfan)

@beserkk: Both references provided are from 2018. Is the information still valid?

@dalto: You might consider reaching out to the Slimjet development team about the issues you're encountering. I also appreciate the work you've done; thank you.

bezerkk commented on 2021-11-17 16:56 (UTC) (edited on 2021-11-17 17:07 (UTC) by bezerkk)

Thanks Dalto for your work up til now! Btw I've just found these pages - and - and therefore I have decided to remove Slimjet from my machine today.

dalto commented on 2021-11-15 14:52 (UTC) (edited on 2021-11-15 14:55 (UTC) by dalto)

I have decided to disown this package.

There are too many concerning things with the upstream packaging of this browser which make me uncomfortable with continuing to provide it to others.

Currently, the files which are on the site as are different than the files that were on the site yesterday as As far as I can tell, there was no notification or explanation of this change. This isn't the first or even the second time this has happened.

While it would be easy enough for me to update the package sums and bump the pkgrel, I just can't get comfortable with that. The purpose of the package sums is to ensure the integrity and validity of the source files. When the same source file versions don't have consistent sums, it makes this process pointless.

If anyone wants to pick up this package and needs help understanding how to update it, feel free to reach out to me.

If you receive an error like this:

ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

It probably means the package has been updated upstream. In this case, please flag the package as out-of-date and I will update it.

This happens because upstream uses the same filenames for each release.

jrichard326 commented on 2021-11-07 20:33 (UTC)

Same here. I have built it a few times and I have even gone as far as removing the package, though I kept my config. I dropped a note in their feedback section. It is unclear if anybody reads those.

dalto commented on 2021-11-07 19:22 (UTC)

So, the website claims to have released However, the files in the release channel still identify themselves as The download links on the website are pulling it from the beta channel.

To make things even more confusing, they have pushed a new version to the release channel which still identifies itself as but has different checksums than the old version which is why you are getting errors @bezerk.

So I also pulled the files from the beta channel and they are the same files in the release channel.

The only conclusion I can make from this is that is misidentifying itself as

I guess I will release this as and see if flashpeak actually fixes this before the next release.

slimjet doesn't seem to work on any of my Arch installs so I am reluctant to bump the pkgver as the prior version is still working.

Can anyone confirm the works for them?

Katsuki commented on 2021-06-25 06:55 (UTC) (edited on 2021-06-25 06:58 (UTC) by Katsuki)

For version you could use from opera codec here:

If you have "no sound" problem when playing video or audio, you could try to run "flashpeak-slimjet" script with "--no-sandbox" flag.

If you have youtube high cpu usage problem because of sw.js service worker problem (you can check it with slimjet taskmanager), you could try to block service worker with "Reject Service Worker" extension.

xanadu73 commented on 2021-04-16 18:01 (UTC)

Version 29x has problems with streaming videos, and the suggestion on the website about ffmpeg has ceased working. Previous releases didn't had such problem. The same thing happens on Debian also, so don't fiddle much with your system.

jrichard326 commented on 2021-03-23 22:16 (UTC)

@dalto: Thank you, the snapshot method worked just fine in building the package. This is a secondary browser for me, but I like to keep it on hand if for some reason I think FF nightly is not working on a particular site. It's a pity that they do not update the codebase very often. Turbo downloader, search box and built in video downloader are nice features.

dalto commented on 2021-03-23 21:16 (UTC)

@jrichard326, that isn't really the correct way to build an AUR package. It only works for packages without additional files.

You really should either git clone the package or download the snapshot. Then you can call makepkg.

jrichard326 commented on 2021-03-23 21:13 (UTC)

I was able to build it by removing the reference to "license" in source and in the package section of the PKGBUILD. I typically run makepkg -cs --skipchecksums in the folder where the PKGBUILD was copied to.

dalto commented on 2021-03-23 12:15 (UTC) (edited on 2021-03-23 12:21 (UTC) by dalto)

@jrichard326, it is working fine here. How are you trying to build it? Did you download all the files or only the PKGBUILD? Downloading only the PKGBUILD will not work.

jrichard326 commented on 2021-03-23 12:10 (UTC)

When I try to build, I get this error:

==> ERROR: LICENSE was not found in the build directory and is not a URL.

dalto commented on 2021-03-04 14:06 (UTC)

@sankadub, That libglesv2 error is "normal" it happens even on supported platforms.

What isn't normal is those audio errors. I am not sure what, specifically, is causing those. It happens on Arch as well. Most likely, the version of slimjet is not compatible with current libraries in Arch.

Since this is a binary package provided by flashpeak, unless someone knows of a workaround, the fix will need to come from upstream.

sankadub commented on 2021-03-04 06:49 (UTC)

dalto commented on 2020-12-08 00:46 (UTC)

@punkrockguy318 Those gitkeep files are part of the official package from flashpeak.

You might want to report that upstream.

prg commented on 2020-12-08 00:34 (UTC)

package() in this PKGBUILD currently installs various empty .gitkeep files

$ pacman -Ql slimjet | grep gitkeep
slimjet /opt/.gitkeep slimjet /usr/bin/.gitkeep slimjet /usr/share/doc/slimjet/.gitkeep slimjet /usr/share/man/man1/.gitkeep.gz

dalto commented on 2020-08-29 14:47 (UTC)

I overhauled the PKGBUILD pretty heavily. I brought the dependencies up to date, fixed the permissions issues where everything in opt was being set executable and removed a bunch of unused/unneeded misc stuff.

I tested it quite a bit but if anything is no longer working please let me know.

dalto commented on 2020-08-24 18:37 (UTC)

@TrialnError, yes, I never cleaned it up properly after I took it over. I will take a look at it this week.

TrialnError commented on 2020-08-24 18:22 (UTC)

I noticed some quirks with this PKGBUILD.
Firstly provides and replaces should be removed from the PKGBUILD. The first one doesn't do anything and the latter is used wrongly in this case :)
Same goes for the makedepends line. I kinda understand why it was added (architecture specific sources and deps) but it isn't really a makedep of slimjet itself.
Extracting the source is something that should be done in the prepare-function. package() should only contain the instructions where stuff gets shoved into $pkgdir.
All points which can be read in the AUR Guidelines in the Arch wiki in case you're wondering if I'm telling the truth :D

Best regards

dalto commented on 2020-08-04 20:18 (UTC)

@twnaing, two comments.

  1. Wouldn't that force the proprietary codecs on everyone?
  2. Are you allowed to include an unofficial binary like that in an AUR package? I thought that was considered bad form.

twnaing commented on 2020-08-04 12:38 (UTC) (edited on 2020-08-04 13:50 (UTC) by twnaing)

@dalto, with separate approach, ffmpeg code will be overwritten by slimjet package on every update.

Isn't it better to have latest (compatible) ffmpeg as another source?

I mean I am not sure I can explain it any better than it is explained in what you copied in.

It wants root access the first time it runs, you select the number for what you want to do.

@dalto i don't understand it:
$ flashpeak-slimjet
Admin access is needed to enable the sandbox for enhanced security. Choose 'Use sudo command' if you have sudo access on systems like ubuntu. Choose 'Use su command' if you have access to root account. If you don't have admin access, select 'Quit' and add the switch '--no-sandbox' to run Slimjet without sandbox (less secure).
1) Use sudo command
2) Use su command
3) Quit
Please select an option to proceed:
Google chrome have exactly all these stuffs ?

dalto commented on 2020-07-15 14:43 (UTC) (edited on 2020-07-15 18:35 (UTC) by dalto)

@abd, if something isn't working you need to say what it is specifically for me to investigate it.

That being said, if something is failing to compile, it probably isn't this package but one of it's dependencies since this package is a binary.

Other than that, try running it from a terminal by typing flashpeak-slimjet

abd commented on 2020-07-15 14:13 (UTC)

Why did it not launch as compiled perfectly?

ed_o commented on 2020-06-14 20:47 (UTC)

The new MD5 for the amd64 version seems to be "fd2b45d1b88d5b1136a6302f4873bb21" → change it in the PKGBUILD if you are getting any errors!!

tnilzon commented on 2020-05-24 09:07 (UTC)

Many thanks raininja for keeping this great Linux Browser updated!! It is one of very few Chrome-based browsers with a default and built in Mouse-Gestures that works well on Linux (without the need for double click "workaround" to reach the browser context menu). It is also easy on computer resources. Thanks once again!

dalto commented on 2020-05-23 11:51 (UTC)

In reference to the codecs, I would think it would make sense to have it in a separate package, as an optional dependency consistent with how it is done for other browsers. For example, like Vivaldi does,

twnaing commented on 2020-05-23 05:08 (UTC)

Can we do something about "need to install ffmpeg on every update" described in here (

Is it better to have a separate package and require it or include it in here?

It has been adopted and updated. Please let me know if there are any issues going forward.

I think this package should be removed for a basic security issue.

StratosL commented on 2018-12-19 17:07 (UTC)

Why can't it work without root permissions? This is by itself a security risk.

dreieck commented on 2018-09-02 13:57 (UTC)

It does not seem to provide a system wide pepper-flash (It is in /opt/slimjet/PepperFlash, but not installed system-wide). So, consider removing the provides-entry, since it creates unnessesary conflicts with other packages.

(Same with slimjet. There is no slimjet symlinked to /usr/bin.)

dreieck commented on 2018-09-02 13:52 (UTC)

license=('custom:slimjet'), but the package fails to install the license text (or at least a note) to /usr/share/licenses/${pkgdir}.

dreieck commented on 2018-09-02 13:47 (UTC)

This package provides a precompiled binary. So please rename it to slimjet-bin, or build it from source. (Building from source might also solve segfault-issues.)

dreieck commented on 2018-09-02 13:46 (UTC)

md5sums are wrong (at least for x86_64).

And makepkg -Ci, as noted in a comment, is definitely not a solution.

marakasmalan commented on 2018-07-05 19:32 (UTC)

raininja commented on 2018-04-02 15:06 (UTC) (edited on 2018-04-29 23:19 (UTC) by raininja)

If you are having problems with sums, simply use makepkg -Ci and it works fine.

This package should be renamed to slimjet-bin, as it is not compiled from sources.

catweazel commented on 2017-11-22 04:58 (UTC)

Thank you for maintaining this package. It's appreciated.

raininja commented on 2017-10-14 17:48 (UTC)

@slobodan the proper method provided by archlinux is to flag the package out of date. There's no need to make disparaging comments. If you don't like the darn package, create your own. Sorry that I missed the update, browser is supposed to report it, and the other method by which the maintainer is notified is by the Flag package out of date option above. Thanks.

Slobodan commented on 2017-10-14 17:13 (UTC)

I don't know anything about PKGBUILD, but if it's just changing the checksums and maintainer is to lazy to do it, I'll do it for him. For raininja that is.

ninian commented on 2017-06-05 14:59 (UTC)

Thanks for the package. This browser, though based on Chromium, really is noticeably lighter on memory, and provides useful extra features. Check to find out how to ensure MP4 videos play.

madi139 commented on 2017-05-04 15:07 (UTC)

Hello, thanks for your work. When are you planning to make an update? Slimjet has a new version (5/2/17) whith Chromium 57

raininja commented on 2017-03-26 20:50 (UTC) (edited on 2017-03-26 20:50 (UTC) by raininja)

There is a link to flag the package out of date, which is the proper device to alert the maintainer of issues with the package, rather than whining about free stuff that is not maintained properly

bholu9837 commented on 2017-03-26 16:07 (UTC)

If you get checksums error, do following: 1.==> Edit PKGBUILD ? [Y/n] --press Y 2. Go to the website and copy latest MD5 32bit: 6600B609132C18C844CFDC912360A9D6 64bit: C3EE776D026C4AFC26DFCBE4DD758C7C 3. save the PKGBUILD and install.

hardyh commented on 2017-02-13 13:09 (UTC)

This package does not install dur to improper checksums in the pkgbuild, once again. As a package maintainer you should upate your pkgbuilds if it's as easy as you state in your comments. It' not in the responsibility of us userss to do the maintainer's job

kozaki commented on 2017-02-11 13:53 (UTC)

@fellows users who have issue with the checksum, you can use the '-o, --nobuild' option of makepkg to build slimjet successfuly. Alternatively type "makepkg -g >> PKGBUILD" and copy/paste the right checksum ; it's as easy as that :)

5th time in a row i had to correct the md5sum in PKGBLD for the x64 version. md5sum = dae62b0d489789cedc5724f1cb37000a

raininja commented on 2016-12-08 03:50 (UTC)

It's been updated. sorry about the lag

sofchanger commented on 2016-12-08 01:02 (UTC)

I can not install the package, it results in an error when validating. I Can't install using the official package, which is located in, because it is with errors when you run the installation script Any solution? Thank you

I just tried to update slimjet today and I get again this error slimjet- ... FAILED ==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check! :: failed to verify slimjet integrity EDIT: I installed it manually from slimjet's site in which there is a newer version(slimjet-

raininja commented on 2016-11-27 17:25 (UTC)

OK it should build ok now. Sorry about that lag.

Gio commented on 2016-11-27 09:06 (UTC)

HI, I was trying to build/install with Pacman the version but I get this error (like some other users below): ==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check! ==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build slimjet. Thank You.

raininja commented on 2016-11-13 00:55 (UTC)

expect another upgrade soon as it seems that the slimjet dev team tends to upload a version or two behind sometimes.. this one has been designated on the site but the deb and the browser say

raininja commented on 2016-11-02 21:28 (UTC)

I've not updated this because upstream had a bad file again uploaded. I'll do it soonish.

Scimmia commented on 2016-10-06 15:21 (UTC)

source_x86_64 entry is wrong. "$" is in the wrong place on the _channel variable.

raveni commented on 2016-08-12 07:17 (UTC)

I skip validation so intall works but when I try run it, I get this error: [7:7:0100/] Invalid node channel message zsh: segmentation fault (core dumped) flashpeak-slimjet This is same error before uninstalling...

raveni commented on 2016-08-12 05:22 (UTC)

I get this error when try to install with yaourt: ==> Validating source_x86_64 files with md5sums... slimjet- ... FAILED ==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check! ==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build slimjet. I have installed slimjet before but I remove it because it won't start any more and try install it back and get above error..

raininja commented on 2016-08-02 15:01 (UTC)

The problem is that slimjet devs don't publish a versioned binary, it's always the same filename, so it's not going to be a clean upgrade path without my manual intervention regardless of any steps I take. . . so sorry if the upgrades aren't always quick.

Drevoborod commented on 2016-06-29 19:48 (UTC)

For me is working correctly. But only changed version in PKGBUILD and .SRCINFO files, did not change MD5 - tired to look for correct one and used --skipchecksums option.

tlb commented on 2016-06-25 20:42 (UTC) is working for me. Edit the build with version number and appropriate MD5s: 32bit Deb Package(.deb) MD5:BBB2A7FDF84FBE0AADBE1ED6F1C100EA 64bit Deb Package(.deb) MD5:AC2D638A560BB3FDB755C620FB4034CD

raininja commented on 2016-06-06 04:25 (UTC)

for me is broken.

tlb commented on 2016-06-02 15:37 (UTC)

FYI: The MD5 sums have changed at the source. Edit the PKGBUILD accordingly.

I love this browser--it's become my go-to because of the multi-threaded download capability.

kozaki commented on 2016-05-28 19:34 (UTC)

Slimjet x86_64 seems to be runnign fine. Had to remove the config/slimjet folder to get rid of the Core dump though. @raininja nice job --I find Slimjet well done on the responsivity and configurability sides (best Blink one so far). Have added it to a browsers real-life efficiency comparison I'm doing (1st sequel:

raininja commented on 2016-05-24 23:27 (UTC) (edited on 2016-05-24 23:27 (UTC) by raininja)

good call @kozaki, made the change, works fine here edit- it seems to work the same as the previous versions here, without the tooltip issue (so far)

kozaki commented on 2016-05-24 21:27 (UTC)

You would think archers would be more understanding of the mechanisms of the AUR. The ridiculous comments on this thread . . . .

kozaki commented on 2016-05-22 16:49 (UTC)

@hardyh Slimjet has just been updated. Checksum the deb yourself or read the message before yours to get installed.

hardyh commented on 2016-05-22 15:13 (UTC)

This package is not installable, the checksum test of the package fails

The proper method is to flag the package out of date. It's updated.

raininja commented on 2016-02-09 18:26 (UTC)

version update, should install ok now.

raininja commented on 2016-02-09 18:15 (UTC)

hmm I see the problem. . . it is that they are updating the .deb and since the download is not versioned it grabs the never version despite the tag in the PKGBUILD. . . I will update to now and attempt to stay on top of this. . .

raininja commented on 2016-02-09 17:53 (UTC) (edited on 2016-02-09 17:57 (UTC) by raininja)

Responsiveness' in the range of Seamonkey which itself is really good :)

raininja commented on 2016-02-02 16:45 (UTC)

it should be fixed now, installs fine here

hardyh commented on 2016-02-02 10:34 (UTC)

So, slimjet still is not installable, it again fails the md5 check, just like 5 months ago. Can someone fix this please finally?

kozaki commented on 2016-01-24 00:37 (UTC)

The ${_channel} variable on the source lines of the PKGBUILD need to be changed to "release" so they read like;${pkgname}_amd64.deb")
