When trying to start riot-desktop with Electron 5.x, it coredumps:

[29400:0425/135956.996521:FATAL:setuid_sandbox_host.cc(157)] The SUID sandbox helper binary was found, but is not configured correctly. Rather than run without sandboxing I'm aborting now. You need to make sure that /usr/lib/electron/chrome-sandbox is owned by root and has mode 4755.
/bin/riot-desktop: line 3: 29400 Trace/breakpoint trap (core dumped) electron /usr/lib/riot/ "$@"

Looks like `/usr/lib/electron/chrome-sandbox` need to be made setsuid…
This task depends upon

Upstream Riot issue has been fixed, so only the SUID one remains.

Thanks, fixed the SUID in 5.0.1-2

@chuqingqing: No Arch Package contains /usr/lib/node_modules/electron/. You likely installed electron manually or through an AUR package.
Comment by chuqingqing (chuqq) - Friday, 07 June 2019, 09:07 GMT
I installed electron by `sudo npm install -g electron`.

So manually. That’s your issue then.
