A new va-api patch for wayland has been added. Required flags for it to work are the following, thanks to @acidunit

You can get prebuilt binaries here:

Please do NOT flag this package as out of date in relation to official chromium releases.

This is NOT Google Chromium and new releases come after additional work of the ungoogled-chromium contributors, so they may not be ready, nor available for days or even weeks after a new version of official chromium is released.

Please refer to for ungoogled-chromium releases. Use those and please flag this package as out of date only if a newer release is present there. I will update the PKGBUILD as soon as I can every time a new release comes out.

when icu or re2 or whatever get updated, ungoogled chromium does not stop launching? In other words, make it so it does not rely on system installation of re2 or icu or anything it needs a specific version of

In that case why not try the flatpak version of ungoogled chromium? A big advantage of building programs that link to your system libraries is to keep both the programs themselves and the libraries up-to-date and safe against latest vulnerabilities. For each library you want to freeze alongside with a binary, you leave a forgotten library that'll bite you in the future with some fresh 0-days. For Google themselves, they could maintain the Chrome release with all libraries up-to-date as if they're maintaining a mini distro (with that many dependencies, it almost is), but here even keeping the ungoogled-chromium AUR package up-to-date alone is already that time-consuming for the only maintainers. The flatpak version on the other hand could at least hold the libraries back in the sandbox, which means no more breaking chromium so you could try it.

(BTW, I'm using prebuilt ungoogled-chromium package from archlinuxcn repo for my x86-64 devices, and build the package by myself for my aarch64 devices.)

Any chance you can modify the build script in a way so that when icu or re2 or whatever get updated, ungoogled chromium does not stop launching? In other words, make it so it does not rely on system installation of re2 or icu or anything it needs a specific version of. Just like prebuilt Chrome.

I should mention, "just rebuild" is the wrong answer, as rebuilding takes 4 hours, (even on an 8 core), during which time not only I have downtime browsing, but also using my pc due to 100% cpu usage.

I think some improvements are warranted due to the long build time and the unlikelyness of this moving to [extra] any time soon.

@lahwaacz I see what happened now, it's pulling from chaotic-aur prebuilt. I'll let the Garuda team know it needs to be rebuilt.

@HeroesLament: it is not the maintainer's responsibility to rebuild your packages.

Hello guys, it looks like the re2 package has updated the library, it is now

user@computer# chromium 

/usr/lib/chromium/chromium: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Can you update please?

Um...I found the flags in the pinned comments do make the video decode information shows up, but according to intel_gpu_top it's still software decoding. However


also let the info show up and even more formats are shown (e.g. VP9 Profile 2 and HEVC). And it is indeed hardware accelerated according to intel_gpu_top.

This time even the information from media is deceiving. It doesn't show hardware acceleration as well.

pgo was disabled on extra/chromium on v111

ptr1337 commented on 2023-06-06 06:20 (UTC)

Why do you have PGO disabled? Actually this can be enabled since clang 15. The upstream PKGBUILD from ungoogled-chromium has it also enabled. Please sync it.

JstKddng commented on 2023-05-05 15:05 (UTC)

should be fixed now
