If you get the following error at update time:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
franz-bin: /usr/bin/franz exists in filesystem

Simply do:

sudo pacman -Rcs franz-bin
sudo rm /usr/bin/franz

And install franz-bin again.

The problem is that in previous version the /usr/bin/franz was created by the install file, this is bad idea because the package system don't know who owns this file. This is fixed in current version.

Hello I'm unable to update Franz, I get this message ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

I've tried different times, I've tried removing Franz and reinstalling. but nothing works. What can I do? I'm on Kernel 4.19.60-1-MANJARO x86_64 and my Manjaro is up to date.

Here's the full build attempt:

Preparing... Cloning franz-bin build files... Checking franz-bin dependencies...

I could not install version 5.0.0-1 using yay (AUR helper) because it "thinks" 5.0.0_beta.24-1 is newer:

" -> franz-bin: local (5.0.0_beta.24-1) is newer than AUR (5.0.0-1)"

[IMHO that happens because char "_" (005F) is bigger than "-" (002D)]

Need to put some procedure to remove the old files first.

I just reinstalled again after uninstall.

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files) franz-bin: / usr / bin / franz exists in the file system Errors occurred, so no packages were updated.

erro: falha em submeter a transação (arquivos conflitantes) franz-bin: /usr/bin/franz existe no sistema de arquivos Ocorreram erros e, portanto, nenhum pacote foi atualizado.

@ucb the better solution is uninstall and reinstall. If you still have the same issue simply do a sudo rm /usr/bin/franz.

The problem is that in previous version the /usr/bin/franz was created by the install file, this is bad idea because the package system don't know who owns this file. This is fixed in current version.

Hi, I rewrite the PKGBUILD to avoid the use of install files and hardcored icon in .desktop file.

The PKGBUILD is in here: https://lesma.eu/bukenaqo and the franz-bin.patch here: https://lesma.eu/kasimihe

Ah, and the dependencies are fixed too.

@uroybd You can submit a new version of the PKGBUILD without waiting for an upstream release. Have a look at the pkgrel field (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PKGBUILD#pkgrel).
