SolvedBetterDiscordApp A better installer for linux?

Please, please improve BetterDiscord installer for Linux. It is so buggy, and seem not being updated anymore.

  1. Text on DialogBox and FileBrowser doesn't display correctly. I tried to install the font provided, it doesn't help.
  2. Uninstall button literally do nothing.
  3. Too complicated. Just follow the steps found in https://betterdocs.net/documentation/install_linux.html still doesn't enough. More tricks found in Youtube required to make things work. Hope to get something that is easier to use.

Using Fedora 27

https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/tree/betterdiscordctl?h=betterdiscord-rauenzi-git is a script that works along with https://github.com/rauenzi/BetterDiscordApp. Assumes by default that discord will be at /opt/discord, /opt/discord-canary, or /opt/discord-ptb, your Discord modules will be at ~/.config/discord/0.0.X/modules, and that you keep an up-to-date copy of BetterDiscordApp's stable16 tree at /usr/lib/betterdiscord-rauenzi-git for symbolic linking. All of those assumptions can be changed to work with whatever your distro or custom setup uses (read the --help). If you use Arch Linux and the discord AUR package, just installing betterdiscord-rauenzi-git and running betterdiscordctl install should be enough. (I may end up moving the script into an actual repo soon.)
