I have updated the package with this patch. Thanks @bpier!

Ah! Thanks to both of you, it worked for me too. :-)

I was really confused by the PKBUILD part. I didn't understand that changing the desktop file and installing electron4 was enough.

sudo pacman -S electron4


Change: Exec=/usr/bin/electron --app /usr/lib/authy/app.asar

To: Exec=/usr/bin/electron4 --app /usr/lib/authy/app.asar

The package “electron” (on which authy depends) used to be Electron 4, but it is now Electron 5. The API of Electron has changed in this version, which causes Authy to break. Luckily, there is another package, “electron4”, that always points to Electron 4.

The solution is to change the dependency to be “electron4” rather than “electron”.

Can you please explain the solution? My friend doesn't get it... :-)

Blank screen confirmed as well.

Blank screen confirmed here

It seems that this asar file is incompatible with electron 5. It stucks at a blank screen when open with electron 5.
