Question about Discord

Sorry if this is a dumb question or it has been answered and I missed it. But why is Discord not in the list of applications in the package manager? (As in I assume those are tested and work well in Manjaro. Please correct me if I’m wrong though.) It’s popular and despite being marketed for gaming, it is used by many communities and such.

I did get it working through AUR, though building libc++ took me just a little over 2 hours. Discord doesn’t seem to run smoothly. All my actions feel delayed and everything seems to load much slower. It was running fine when I had Windows. If I’m missing something or I did something wrong, please tell me.

Discord is not in the repo, because no maintainer uses it in a Manjaro ISO by default.
Plus it’s closed source.

There are other ways than AUR to get Discord on Manjaro though. Like the Snap package or through other repo’s.
For example, I have Discord in my user repository. :slight_smile:

It can be installed as flatpak also, is in the flathub repo
