Please, consider bumping the pkgrel every 59 days, because otherwise every user of this package needs to rebuild it manually, as to avoid the old build warning, which starts coming up for builds which are 60+ days old. The warning can be disabled, but this is a good practice regardless.

Hello, there was a nativefier update today that probably broke the name scheme.

Quickest fix is restoring the previous version of nodejs-nativefier. I'll update this package later to match the nativefier update

EDIT: Hello, i could build the PKGBUILD file just fine. Which AUR helper did you use? Can you post the complete build log to pastebin or similar?

EDIT2: Try again with the new package

I get the following error while building:

cp: cannot stat 'google-calendar-linux-*': No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package(). Aborting...

Any quick fix for this? :)

Updated the application:


  • fixed build process for new nativefier version

  • fixed google login by using a firefox user agent

  • use electron 7.1.11 instead of the default nativefier 5.x version to fix re-login on every restart

The Google login process with electron is a little tricky, sometimes it gives "cookies disabled" errors, then just try again...

The below diff fixes directory permissions issues and tidies things a little (e.g. adding a leading _ to the local $instname variable).

Hello, thanks for this, I patched the PKGBUILD with your changes.

All seems to be working perfect now. Many thanks for your help ;)

akaessens commented on 2019-06-19 17:29

Thanks again, this was a problem of the --internal-urls flag. I updated that to open login urls internally and tested by logging out & back in.

Other links (e.g. for appointment locations) will be opened externally.
