@Icelk set up a script that checks for new releases and pushes updates if there are any new ones. I believe it runs every hour so there's no need to flag OOD, unless there's something that needs changed with the PKGBUILD.

@Icelk I can't help but notice some inconsistency in the handling of the *-flags.conf scripts for Chromium/Electron-based applications across Arch packages:

Since chromium is the basis of Electron applications, I think that having the flags one per line could be the default; in my opinion, it also improves the readability of the configuration file.

I hope this is useful, let me know if I got something wrong.

When running under a Wayland GNOME session, the decorations are not displayed. Modifying the .desktop file to add the --enable-features=WaylandWindowDecorations option fixes the issue.

Hey guys. Something weird is happening with vscodium-bin I am using the wayland version ( --enable-features=UseOzonePlatform --ozone-platform=wayland --no-sandbox --unity-launch ). However, it does not connect to ssh using the Open-VSX -> Open Remote - SSH plugin. I tried different things, but for now I am sticking to vscodium-bin-

Do you have the same problem?

Hey, I was wondering why --no-sandbox is used in the .desktop files. Upstream seems to have changed that a while ago, see

@griffi-gh That is by design. You can select which apps you wish to be the defaults.

I am getting random crashes when enabling wayland on startup. 9 out of 10 times it briefly shows the GUI, then crashes.

I get this error:

ContextResult::kTransientFailure: Failed to send GpuControl.CreateCommandBuffer.

This happens on the ms version as well. Without wayland it works, but obviously not what I want. Any ideas?

Edit: I downgraded to vscodium-bin-, seems to work now.

Edit2: nope, worked fine for a while, restarted and crashes again. Also with 1.78 and extensions disabled.

Edit3: workaround:

Creates a bunch of unneeded file associations by default. (all folders and image files open in VSCodium)

sudo ln -fs /opt/vscodium-bin/codium /usr/bin/vscodium; sudo rm /usr/share/applications/codium-wayland.desktop

a note when install

==> NOTE: Custom flags should be put directly in: ~/.config/codium-flags.conf

@michaelskyf I'll revert that immediately! Thanks for reporting it.
