Installing reaper

Hi all,
I have just attempted an install of reaper using the terminal:

sudo pamac install reaper

The process, according to the terminal, all completed perfectly. This included 1.2 GB of downloaded dependencies. I assume that’s what they were, because I know that the reaper installer is only about 15 MB!
At the end, I got the message:

installation completed successfully.

But whenever I try to run the app, the taskbar icon appears for 1 second and then disappears.
If anyone has any suggestions as to why this is happening and how to fix it, I’d be most appreciative!

Please run the app by terminal - the output in terminal is a little hint whats wrong with the reaper…

Woah. OK, that launched the app!
So why would the shortcut from the start menu not work?

However, the app is only detecting Jack. I thought pipewire was now installed by default in Manjaro?
Sorry, I know that’s a different issue. I’ll start a separate thread for that.

You may edit (as Admin!) the file
That is related to the shortcut from the start menu.
The path to (The Grim) reaper should be /usr/bin/reaper
So Exec=/usr/bin/reaper may be correct
– I do not use Reaper.

PipeWire is not installed by default.
Manjaro users can install manjaro-pipewire to replace PulseAudio default audio server with PipeWire

Don’t use sudo pamac. Pamac will ask you for the password when it needs it.
