Literally every single packaged version of anki on arch doesn’t run or has some kind of problem after installation.
anki-official-binary-bundle aur package: the Anki window has been blank. only the topbar (with file, edit,tools,etc… ) shows up
- installing anki from the offical website has the same problem as
anki packages in the aur straight-up don’t install on arch
- the flatpak version works and I can make new cards and study them, the problem is when I try to install add-on from file the window hangs and I have to kill the program manually but more importantly the same thing happens when I try to export my anki deck (program hangs, have to restart anki) so I can’t backup my decks which makes me unable to use anki because I am worried I’ll lose all of my anki decks one day
I am also on arch and just tried the
anki-bin using yay.
anki-bin worked completely fine, but
anki failed in the prepare stage.
Also, I am not sure, but the Anki devs may not actually be the ones maintaining the aur pacakges. On their official site, they only have a tarball download for linux, and don’t mention any other installation methods.
I don’t personally have much desktop Linux experience, so my help here is limited. But I do know that the only supported source for Anki on Linux is from the official website. The other versions on the various distros are not recommended. See here:
If you are having trouble getting the official version to run, then you have posted to the right place. Someone else here with more experience can probably help you. I also remember seeing ArchLinux come up in the forum a few times lately, so if you haven’t already done so, I recommend searching to see if the solution has already been provided.
anki-bin and it works fine, for some reason it did not work like two days ago (the export feature works too which is what I needed), the devs still have to fix the other versions or at least the main version from the website
