Recommendation: install the binary version, github-desktop-bin.

Compiling this is painful.

help me to install github desktop

For github-desktop-git, downgrade nodejs to official repo version:

nodejs-lts-carbon 8.11.1-1 source:

Will enable the git version of this package to build. Have not tried this version yet.

immackay, if confirmed to fix this version, could you either add this to the makedepends and/or remove or replace nodejs to nodejs-lts-carbon in depends?

These two packages are in conflict with each other.

Got an error trying to build. System is up to date. Not sure but doesn't look PKGBUILD related. Reporting here just in case.

.... node_modules/node-sass: Command failed. .... .... Build failed with error code: 1 ....

@immackay can you add next line to the desktop file? This helps most WMs to recognize window.

StartupWMClass=github desktop

@Eschwartz Thank you for finding that node-gyp issue.

eschwartz commented on 2018-04-11 20:36

Anyone having node-gyp issues, this should be fixed with but I would think everyone would have them o_O.

(If this is not using the system node-gyp, why not? Also why is python2 an undeclared makedepends.)

@xgdgsc Thanks for letting me know

@pheoxy Thanks for the information, I'll look into this, though I haven't found a way to reproduce it yet on any of my systems. The flags in makepkg.conf shouldn't affect it, no. It appears that somehow your version of node-gyp has been corrupted in some way, but that baffles me as it should download a fresh version on installation of this package (as it's a dependency in package.json).

Do you have node-gyp installed globally on your system, and if so, does it make a difference if you either remove or reinstall it?

@pheoxy how did you manage to build it finally?
