This is not the beta package! Please do not flag it out of date if the new version has the letter "b" in it. Instead please look at

Thanks for this package! I currently have monodevelop-6.2 installed from archlinux and noticed that the monodevelop-unity is version 5.9.6. Is that normal? It seems one of the depends is monodevelop, just wondering why the monodevelop-unity is a different version than the system installed monodevelop and is there a way to bump up the monodevelop-unity version to match?

Please add gconf as a dependency. Unity won't start without it.

@DoctorJellyface: thank you for your input. The point we disagree is that keeping the package at the f version would be "at other users' expenses".

My initial comment is based on the release standards of the windows and mac version, where Unity devs consider the bug fixes to be potentially unstable. I assume it is ok to have a potentially broken patch considering the whole Linux build is experimental itself and the patch versions might be the only source for some Linux specific bugfixes.

That said, I would still prefer to see a third package with the patch version (unity-editor-patch ?). It's just not a big deal while the Linux editor remains in the experimental state.

And please do not mix up beta with this. The beta releases have higher version numbers and include experimental **new** features. The patch releases are nothing of the sort, no matter where they are hosted. They fix issues on the current _stable_ branch. It's like a minor bugfix release, except the Unity devs are aware of the size of the download and do not want to force anyone to it. Neither do we. What you install is your choice alone.

DoctorJellyface commented on 2016-12-27 09:05

Also, if some users need those patches, how are they supposed to install them?

DoctorJellyface commented on 2016-12-27 09:03

@spacepluk, I would like to second this. Just because some users don't need the fixes doesn't mean that new users (installers) should get an unpatched bugged one.

If you really want to save those gigs just add unity-editor to the pacman ignore list and install when you think it is needed (which you should be doing already owing to the size of the package), but you cannot ask us to skip those releases at other users' expense.

hi @bohdanfetso @igorrafael,
My understanding is that patch versions add bugfixes, which I think is desirable given the current situation of the editor for linux where there's no real stable :)

5.5.0p1 is definitely not a beta release, the unity-editor-beta package is on version 5.6.0b1.

I think that providing the latest version available for each line of development follows the Arch way and I believe most users would expect that. And if you wish to skip the patch versions that's something you can do easily.

I don't know, this way makes more sense to me but I could be wrong. I would love to hear more opinions about this.

bohdanfetso commented on 2016-12-27 05:58

Please update back to version 5.5.0f3. Version 5.5.0p1 is beta! And this is stable branch.

igorrafael commented on 2016-12-26 15:27

IMHO, the main unity-editor package should not update to patch versions. I understand arch users are used to living on the bleeding edge but even unity states "As always, patch releases are recommended only for users affected by those bugs fixed in that patch" []. Another hint to that is that the patch version's URL starts with "beta".

btw, thanks for maintaining this package in the first place :)

I don't think there's a workaround. Unity is probably not tested/meant to run without hardware acceleration, so it's not so surprising that it fails. I would just run the previous version until you can upgrade the hardware. To revert to the previous version you can try this:

git clone
cd unity-editor
git checkout 8070e9e33c25b13ee023d031b1c8195d96cbb101
makepkg -sif
