You should add npm audit fix just after the npm install

Thanks for catching that!

jitsi-meet-desktop.desktop is broken since it executes jitsi-meet, while the application is jitsi-meet-desktop. Thanks !

@SamWhited: done, thanks!

I'm totally with you on your opinion on electron, it's even worse when building/packaging for non-x86_64-systems. I'm not happy with it, but I'm getting used to getting things to build with it, so I could as well make use of that ;)

@lsf: that's great, thanks! I don't use this much anymore (Electron is just garbage and I got tired of dealing with it), so I'll abandon it and you're welcome to pick it up and add your changes if you want.

I'd happily try co-maintain the package, if that would help – I've made it build & package on aarch64, as well as went on to make it use system electron to run (still downloads everything to build it, though) at

@SamWhited I can understand that ;) Thank you for packaging jitsi anyway :)

@mqs: I don't see a sane way to do this, and really deeply hate electron and NPM, so I'm happy to abandon the package if someone else that has experience with these things or actually wants to learn them wants to take a stab at it.

Thank you! Could you try to use the electron package of archlinux instead of bundling another one? There seem to be instructions here: but i'm not an expert concerning Javascript.

Thanks Sam - Seems to work OK.
