You can optionally run the package with the electron3 package which I uploaded a few days ago to the AUR. Why is it not used by default? -> It takes ~ 1h to build and you need to increase the /tmp folder size for building (sudo mount -o remount,size=20G /tmp/). If it arrives in community one day, I'll switch.

If you installed it, replace electron2 by electron3 in /opt/notion-app/notion-app.

@ulgens The original Windows/macOS app themselves don't have system tray support though.

pat-s commented on 2019-04-26 11:04

@ulgens what would be the added value of a tray icon in this case?

DrDonkey commented on 2019-04-18 06:35

electron2 command not found. As @pat-s mentioned, install electron2 from repo.

ulgens commented on 2019-04-14 15:48

System tray icon support would be nice. Thanks for your effort :)

I had to fall back to electron2 as Notion does not start using electron4 (which was updated today). I'll try continuously in the next weeks to see if they added support for electron4.

The electron version change might trigger a relogin prompt.

I fixed the icon issue.

I did a fresh install and there is no icon.

pat-s commented on 2019-03-20 21:41

Thanks, I included your changes.

Hi I fixed PKGBUILD to generate a desktop entry file for a better desktop integration. Could you accept this patch?
