hey guys, @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 Thank you for responding :)

Ok, I'm a bit curious about this, from a "I like to learn stuff" point of view. You say "believe", is this not your decision?

Here's my 5 cent about this. I just switched to EndeavourOS after 10 years using another distro. I'm super stoked! Just love the Arch pacman/aur etc

I install codium and next thing i know my short cut for opening Nemo opens codium. Then I plug in a usb-stick and codium also opens. wtf is this I'm thinking. I spend hours researching this and finally found out why. I'm not alone it seems:

So, yea, if I could choose between sane defaults here, I'd rather just very easily fix the context menu myself. Right-click file, open with other application, done.

Anyway, thanks a lot for this package! :)

Hi @fractalf. Thanks!

I've actually answered this question before:

I believe this is done to add codium to the open-with context menu. If you want another app to open, you can always create your own .desktop file (and e.g. open the folder in you terminal of choice) or just remove the default open with choice using the xdg utilities (xdg-mime default nemo.desktop inode/directory).

Hi! There is a bug in this package that messes with 2 things on my EndeavourOS (Cinnamon)

  1. After install, inserting an USB stick opens vscodium (instead of Nemo)
  2. Pressing Win+E opens vscodium (instead of Nemo)

I tracked it down to this line in vscodium-bin.desktop


This messes up the file /usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache after installing:

# Before install
> cat /usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache | grep inode

# After install
> cat /usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache | grep inode

I'm not sure why this (inode/directory) was even added in the first place, but I'm sure this messes up at least these two things mentioned.

Cheers! :)

Edit: Yea and the fix is to remove inode/directory; from vscodium-bin.desktop, I tried this locally, build it and installed it and all was fine

[managed to install it now, so maybe github just gave me garbage a few times, though I did try it on different connections as well]

@Icelk It's still saying it's the wrong hash (actually looks like the has of the x86_64 file is back to the one you originally put in

Is there a way to refresh any cached sums I might have? I'm still getting a validity check error for the main .tar.gz file

Icelk commented on 2023-01-07 17:11 (UTC)

Hey. The issues with the sums should be resolved now. Thanks for notifying me!

The binaries were uploaded to GitHub a few minutes ago, but the hashes for the binaries still need to be updated.
