@maijari I suggest launching the software from the terminal so you can see any potential output that might give you a hit to what's going on when the electron app locks up.

Not sure if it's just me or my brand new Manjaro i3 install, but I've been experiencing the Electron issue again where Local becomes non-responsive when it's running for some time. The local Wordpress website I'm working on is still working, however when I switch to the Local program, I can't click on anything.

The Local process continues to run but the Local interface is non-interactable.

Thanks for the explanation and the PKGBUILD @zc0rp10. Keeping the name makes sense. Hopefully it will be orphaned so someone can maintain it. I'm happy to help if I can but I haven't done AUR packaging before. There's a first time for everything I suppose.

@ajshakib If you're no longer interested in maintaining the package, please orphan it so it can be picked up by someone else.

@esa1975 Name can be changed for this package without creating a new one. Maintainer just have to put in a request with AUR team.

With regards to a name change however, I'd be careful so you don't end up conflicting with the local command. I'd vote to keep it as it is, software is still called Local, and it's still being produced by Flywheel. Guessing most of us still reefer to it as local by flywheel.

I also can confirm that @zc0rp10's PGKBUILD works fine. I see that an email was sent to the maintainer. Is it possible to just create a new package? It would allow for fixing the name at least.

Can confirm that as @duhbLow7 said, @zc0rp10's PGKBUILD fixes the issue.

@damonh thanks for mentioning Lando, had never heard of it but sounds interesting.

damonh commented on 2020-06-30 20:27

As I couldn't make it work, I switched to Lando. It's really awesome!

package is broken as is. typos in PKGBUILD. @zc0rp10's PKGBUILD fixes this (and more!).

package is out of date. 5.63 is current version.

project has changed names multiple times and is now called just Local. Local By Flywheel > Local Lightning > Local WP > Local.

Hi, please update the package build according to this: <-- UPDATED: 5.6.3 now


* Included chmod 4755 command for chrome-sandbox in the package build so you can remove the pinned comment.
* Created a symlink in /usr/bin to the executable so local-by-flywheel actually shows up in dmenu and other simple launchers.
* Added the following missing dependencies: gtk3, nss, libjpeg-turbo, libxss, libxslt
* Corrected the license to custom: license=('custom:proprietary') as is appropriate according to Flywheel team.
