Ungoogled-chromium - error while loading shared libraries: libre2.so.8

On 5.10.2-2-MANJARO

/usr/lib/chromium/chromium: error while loading shared libraries: libre2.so.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Maybe it is related to recent system upgrade (pacman -Syu), i reboot it. In regards to that .so file, what do you suggest to try?

xickwy suggested:
sudo DOWNGRADE_FROM_ALA=1 downgrade re2
…choose the version 20200801 or 20201001

That’s right.

You need to downgrade to re2 from 2020-08. I’ve downgraded a few hours chromium and i need to downgrade re2 to work

No, it’s not. Chromium needs to be rebuilt when re2 updates.

So i do not know if there is a work around or i should

$ pamac upgrade ungoogled-chromium
Nothing to do.
$ sudo pamac install chromium
To install (1):
chromium 87.0.4280.88-2 extra 68,7 MB
To remove (1):
ungoogled-chromium 86.0.4240.198-1 (Conflicts With: chromium)

(ungoogled chromium is package from AUR) and then hope my browser configuration will be preserved (config files seems to be in ~/.config/chromium/) . When i last time tried to build it, it took half a day and was not complete yet, so i would not want to build it again as i consider it waste of PC resources.

Sorry … thats how compiling aur packages work … you have to rebuild them against your current libs.

(or use pre-compiled binaries provided by … somewhere)
