The installation of the application is very important as the extension can not do anything by itself.
Aur users that use DoomLerd's package should be safe as he says. We are not recommending to use it, but if you want you can still use it. Thanks to DoomLerd for handling aur repo still.
PreMiD is a simple, configurable utility that uses Discord's RP ( Rich Presence ) library which allows you to show what you're doing on the web ( and a few programs ) in your Discord profile as playing status.
Technically every distribution that can run Discord's official app ( not the web or the snap version ) can run PreMiD too;
As you may have noticed in the recent years, some Linux distributions started dropping support for the 32-bit (ia32/i686/i386/x86) architectures, and as a result, we did too. You can, however, try to build the app yourself if you desperately need to use it on a 32-bit distribution.
Since we currently use Electron as an engine (Discord does too!), its requirements also apply to this app :
It is unknown whether older versions of other distributions support it, so just keep your distribution updated and use LTS (Long-Term Support) releases if your distribution offers them, as they're more stable (avoid alpha releases).
Thanks to :
The AppImage package is the recommended one if Discord works for you but other PreMiD packages (.deb, .rpm, etc) don't.
wget https://github.com/PreMiD/Linux/releases/latest/download/PreMiD-Portable.AppImage && chmod a+x PreMiD*.AppImage
# Just double-click it or run ./PreMiD*.AppImage
Either if you want to try PreMiD or just don't want to install it, this one's the best, it's always up to date but DOESN'T AUTO-START WITH THE SYSTEM!
If you get tired of having to open it each time, use the other packages (according to your distribution).
We released deb/rpm packages at our packagecloud repo. Please visit it at https://packagecloud.io/PreMiD/Linux and download your deb/rpm package or use automatic script.
curl -s https://packagecloud.io/install/repositories/PreMiD/Linux/script.deb.sh | sudo bash
curl -s https://packagecloud.io/install/repositories/PreMiD/Linux/script.rpm.sh | sudo bash
If command doesn't work, download deb/rpm file from our packagecloud repo or override settings.
# Using yay (recommended) yay -S premid
# Using pakku pakku -S premid
# Using trizen trizen -S premid
# Using pacaur pacaur -S premid
# ... you get the point
or manually from the Arch User Repository if you know what you're doing.
If your distro uses pacman, then you have to install one of the helpers first. If you don't have any, Yay is recommended, run :
git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/yay.git && cd yay && makepkg -si
yay -S premid
Other AUR/Pacman helpers work as well, although each one's functionality is different so you may face issues while using them.
