From their site:

Just as we mentioned in the beginning, using Better Discord is against the Discord’s Terms of Service. So, there is a risk of your account getting banned but that doesn’t happen a lot. Discord is not too strict on its users.

There is a security issue since we are letting an external application interact with our chats. But, you can trust it since many people use Better Discord. You can understand this just from seeing the number of people who have download Better Discord plugins and themes.

Advice : I would not use this, even if it is used by many people :crazy_face:

But if you really want to run it, this might help: Install BetterDiscord on Linux · GitHub

Okay but I can launch discord on the internet so idk :confused:

Is there a way to uninstall better discord ?

If you installed from the AUR there is a simple solution just use the add/remove software option.

No I installed with my terminal

What command did you use?

Installs Yay a dependency

  1. sudo pacman -S --noconfirm yay

Installs Discord and Better Discord.

  1. yay -S --sudoloop --noconfirm --mflags --nocheck libc++abi libc++ discord betterdiscord-rauenzi-git

To Enable BetterDiscord

  1. betterdiscordctl install --global-asar -b /usr/lib/betterdiscord-rauenzi-git

when Libc++ and Libc++abi get an update and you can’t update them through software package manager
This Command Updates Libc++ and Libc++abi

  1. yay -S --noconfirm --needed --sudoloop --mflags --nocheck libc++abi libc++

Oh no It’s ok I found thanks for your help haha
