Weird as it works now....I am using Pacman. Thanks for teh quick reply and testing! I did nothing....I simply tried again. Who knows why the error....

@Tio npm ist listed in the pkgbuild as a dependency so this should not happen, I tried to reproduce this error by first removing npm and then running makepkg -si but as expected it pulled in npm as a build dependency. I then tried to reproduce your error by running makepkg -si inside a clean archlinux docker container but again as expected it pulled in npm as a build dependency.

What command and/or aur helper did you use ?

@Jikstra thank you for the fast response. So the .SRCINFO file was the problem, good to know :)

Jikstra commented on 2020-03-11 13:42

@elovin done :)

@Jikstra Can you update the pkgver variable to a newer version ? The pkgbuild works fine but when using yay it constantly wants to rebuild it because the pkgver variable and method mismatch:

'aur/deltachat-desktop-git r1.1.0.r1.g8602c727-1 -> v0.999.1.r83.g4fbb8a79-1'

@elovin thanks for reporting, just updated the AUR package, should be fixed now. Electron4 is not needed, we upgraded to electron6 but i forgot to change it in the script.

I had to install electron4, is the dependency (electron6) incorrect ?

deltachat-desktop-git 0.901.0.r12.g12878073-1 crashed on startup for me when attempting to create an account. However the issue was quickly fixed and merged by jikstra on 1/1/2020. This PKGBUILD is actually git master branch, new build deltachat-desktop-git-0.901.0.r61.gb079c2e8-1 and newer should not have this issue (pkgver in the PKGBUILD has not been updated yet but builds fine).

Hey @ciadonia, the master branch of deltachat-desktop was broken, should be fixed by now. We are currently using a git repository for one core dependencies and that branch was deleted. Should be fixed by now. Thanks for reporting this issue!
