Yes, confirming - now it's working guys! Thanks for maintaining and quick assistance.. Switched back to Beta version.

I made a quick fix. Now support custom flags and should be put in ~/.config/microsoft-edge-beta-flags.conf.

@EsauPR added you as a Co-Maintainer now

@bittin I don't have too much experience but if you need help with the package maintenance I could help you.

Still getting this message from this package: ==> Starting package()... install: cannot stat '': No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package(). Aborting... error making: microsoft-edge-beta-bin

Switching to DEV worked... now using Dev version.

Thanks @Lex-2008 I can figure now how it works.

@bittin in the PKGBLUID you call install for but you renamed this wrapper and its content with the prefix microsoft-edge-beta to match with this package so it can't find the file.

Also you need to add it as source and its checksum. And inside this wrapper you exec for the binary in the wrong folder, it must be msedge-beta.

@Lex-2008 @EsauPR

Added that file now, not sure if i did it right however as this is my first PKGBUILD i created from scratch, would anyone of you help with being co-maintainers? that might know better how to do it

@EsauPR: re config file: not at the moment, as I see. If you compare PKGBUILD files for beta and dev, then you will see that unlike beta, dev has this code snippet on line 50:

# User flag aware launcher
install -m755 "${pkgdir}/usr/bin/microsoft-edge-dev"

And indeed reads $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/microsoft-edge-dev-flags.conf file.

I believe that replacing /usr/bin/microsoft-edge-beta symlink with a similar file will do the trick.

Jumping from dev to beta and lost the ability to use the web capture tool.
