I have just upissued to 8.2.0 (d2ba03b), however behind the scenes Crashplan is being renamed to Code42.

I will update and rename this package at some point, but before then please comment if you have any issues with this package not working (especially if the error mentions Code42)

@gadicc, I added some pacman hooks to handle setting/unsetting the immutable flag:

Sets immutable flag after install/upgrade:

[Trigger]
Operation = Upgrade
Operation = Install
Type = Package
Target = crashplan-pro

[Action]
Description = Set immutability of Crashplan Pro upgrade directory
When = PostTransaction
Exec = /usr/bin/bash -c "rm -rf /opt/crashplan/upgrade/*; chattr +i /opt/crashplan/upgrade"`

Unsets immutable flag before upgrade/remove:

[Trigger]
Operation = Upgrade
Operation = Remove
Type = Package
Target = crashplan-pro

[Action]
Description = Undo immutability of Crashplan Pro upgrade directory
When = PreTransaction
Exec = /usr/bin/bash -c "chattr -i /opt/crashplan/upgrade"```

Oh wow, thanks so much for updating this so quickly @legodfrey. I just uninstalled 8.2 and installed 8.5 and it's working perfectly.

I have updated the package to 8.5.0, in addition I have tried removing gconf, this appears to behave on my test system.

I have the same issue as mso with the upgrade to version 8.5. The upgrade log has the following errors when trying to uninstall the current version:

Error : Missing install location information from '/opt/crashplan/install.vars'
Error : See above location values.
Error : Uninstall failed

However install.vars exists and seems to have the correct information, with the exception that BINSDIR, INITDIR, and RUNLVLDIR have no values.

Crashplan is trying to update itself from version 8.2.2 to version 8.5.0 and fails (can't find the exact reason on logs at /opt/crashplan/log).

It tries to upgrade itself again every hour. The upgrade installer is downloaded each time which adds 174.6Mb of data to /opt/crashplan/upgrade

Awesome, thanks ultdev!

mrshady commented on 2020-10-06 14:30

Works for me. Thanks!

@mrshady @achilleas.k CrashPlanDesktop appears as a blank window over X11 forwarding due to a bug with shared memory in Chromium (see https://github.com/electron/electron/issues/22775#issuecomment-616023334)

The workaround is to disable shared memory by appending "--no-xshm" to the CrashPlanDesktop script so that the exec line appears as follows:

exec "${APP_DIR}/electron/code42" --no-xshm & > "${HOME}/.code42/log/ui_output.log" 2> "${HOME}/.code42/log/ui_error.log"

I've been having issues installing gconf and then noticed the top pinned comment that says a lot packages that depend on it don't really need it.

I've removed the dependency from the PKGBUILD and I'm running CrashPlan now without gconf and it seems to be working okay. I'd like more people to confirm though. Maybe something's broken and I'm not realising.

Hi, Thanks for the package! I'm having a problem with the service starting and stopping continuously. Suggestions?

FWIW I installed a desktop and the client is working. Sigh. So much for a minimal installation. Thanks for the great package. I'm sure it's a Code42 thing.
