To whoever submitted a deletion request:

The package in the official repos modifies the package a bit, and as such, bug reports usually will not be accepted upstream.

This package aims to keep things as close to upstream as possible, so that any bug reports originating from Arch users can actually be useful to upstream developers.

EDIT (28/09/17): Thanks to @onestone who has collated a few links explaining why this package bundles Electron, et al. I have attached them to this comment for posterity.

EDIT (08/05/19): Thanks to @wyre who has added another upstream link.

Ok, it is my bad. The problem is that pamac did not cleanup its cache. So after a broken installation, all attempts to reinstall only checksum on the cached files. My another manjaro machine works fine though. I am sorry for my false alarm.

Please post on a Manjaro specific forum as it is not supported here.

sha256sum still fails for me, on manjaro, upgrade with pamac.

That’s strange that the deb fails checksum. I’ll have a look at the package when I get home, unless one of the other maintainers fixes this before I do.

EDIT: sha512sum verification doesn't fail on my system. Are you able to provide more details?

atom-amd64-v1.37.0.deb sha512 validation failed:

By the way, this repo is very helpful if you do not want to install a system-wise nodejs. system-wise nodejs is messy if you plan to use tj/n to manage local nodejs of various versions.

Thank you, @grawlinson

I had a sha512sum validation issue with the LICENSE file. You may want to check again this.

Upstream bundles a copy of Electron with the package, whereas community/atom removes the bundled dependency and directly depends on system Electron.

wyre commented on 2019-05-08 12:19


I've got another question, ... How does this package handle electron dependency? (as opposed how does the official community package.)

wyre commented on 2019-05-07 15:31


Perhaps this link is a candidate to add it to your Upstream links: section (in the pinned comment)

@redflames: You just experienced why partial upgrades are unsupported.
