Please send your complete [logs](https://jitsi.org/logs) (don't post them as a message, create a Gist or send it to the mailing list, where prefer a first discussion anyway) and describe exactly what you did, which distribution you're running, which desktop environment and which Jitsi build.

The logfile you sent doesn't contain the error. As a wild guess, I'd assume that Arch uses shared libraries (which we normally bundle) and these don't contain the necessary OSGi manifest. A prime example for that has been [log4j on Ubuntu](https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/axis/+bug/894302).

I'm closing this issue because Jitsi 2.9.20151014, the version mentioned in your log, is a custom build and we cannot really support that. But feel free to leave further logs and comments.
