The latest version is 0.12.2 not 0.12.3. The link is broken. version 0.13.0 is now the newest

Thanks for pointing that out Raansu. I have removed the dependency on libappindicator-sharp from this package and I submitted a bug report / pull request at

The dependent package libappindicator-sharp does not seem to be available anymore from the AUR or any official Arch Linux repository. Is there a workaround for this?

For anyone having trouble building this using fish shell, set your $SHELL variable to bash before building: set -gx SHELL /usr/bin/bash. I've opened an issue with the library in question:

The licenses are already included along with the copy of Electron. I meant to say there's no need to copy them to /usr/share/licenses/.

I changed the cache directory. Thanks for the suggestion!

I'm sure that if we distribute Chromium and Electron then we need to include their licenses, and I'd prefer to keep this package as similar as possible to the stock IPFS Desktop package for Arch, so I didn't change anything else.

Please use a temporary cache per Node.js package guidelines:

npm install --cache "$srcdir/npm-cache"

npm depends on nodejs and node-gyp, no need to include them.

There's no need to include the Chromium and Electron licenses.

The install file is unnecessary, the binary can be linked in the package() array. Pacman will handle the rest automatically.

EDIT: Actually an install file is needed to remove the symlink to the binary if added to system PATH in the settings:

post_remove() {
    # Delete binary added to system PATH
    rm -f '/usr/local/bin/ipfs'
