Here is a patch that fixes the build dir such that we run npm from the right dir, then it builds correctly against the system electron and works for me.

Thanks for the quick response. Unfortunately, the update hasn't changed anything, I still get the exact same error message.

@RealOrRandom, fixed.

I get this when I try to start ghetto-skype:

Error: The module '/tmp/.org.chromium.Chromium.0E10ut'
was compiled against a different Node.js version using
NODE_MODULE_VERSION 67. This version of Node.js requires
NODE_MODULE_VERSION 64. Please try re-compiling or re-installing
the module (for instance, using `npm rebuild` or `npm install`).
