This is the full package, containing the basic keybase client, and the kbfs parts.

KBFS is currently experimental, and it is not versioned, meaning one has to find a commit that works with client releases.

For this first package iteration this was done with the help of the Keybase developers.

Fixes: T1132

Test Plan

Run it, login, verify that things work.

Unless absolutely unavoidable, using 777 should not be used, as I stated on IRC.


A multitude of these are redundant and are dependencies of other packages. Please look your packages and clean the builddeps up.


/opt is not an acceptable location. Use /usr/share/keybase and clean up files like the post_install script.

Fixed issues

This is the mount point for kbfs, not quite sure how else we can allow any user to mount to it.

The package is updated for the following points:

  • Now installed under /usr/share/keybase instead of /opt/keybase
  • Cleaned up the buildeps list

The 777 mountpoint issue still stand, if someone has an idea on how we can work around it that would be great.

Bringing @ikey in to get his opinion / thoughts on the permission bit.

Any updates about this?

Any updates about this?

I'm wondering the same thing. Are we close to seeing this show up in one of the repos?

KBFS v1.0.47 now mounts KBFS in /run/user/$UID/keybase/kbfs. It also includes keybase-redirector, which ensures that /keybase/{private,public,team} point to the /run/user folder. The permissions for /keybase can be set to 0755, but keybase-redirector requires SUID.

Additionally, it is now possible to set KEYBASE_SKIP_32_BIT=1 to skip the creation of 32-bit binaries.

@Tebro This differential doesn't build successfully in solbuild. Is this a new issue?

Closing due to lack of movement.
