I got stuck at "node install.js" when I tried to install it with pacaur. My Arch system is up-to-date. Does anyone encounter the same problem?

Can we make NPM dependency optional? I'd like to install & update npm by myself without pacman.

I added it to fix the failing post-install step:

I don't know if this is the best/perfect solution, suggestions or other fixes are welcome.

I noticed this change in build script, can someone explain why it's needed?

- HOME="$TMP_HOME" npm install
+ HOME="$TMP_HOME" npm install --unsafe-perm

Latest version should have all the required dependencies.

loonies commented on 2017-06-18 13:38

Missing dependency: gconf

I am facing the issue discribed in the post here:

It is probably not an issue with the packaging since I also have this issue with the upstream sources. But maybe there is something to set-up during the installation. But no idea what...

Let me know if it is not the right place to warm this kind of issue and I will delete this post to not create confusion. But maybe something has to be done during the installation process...

Thanks for the help,

Tried again with the latest commit and it works with and without a home directory

hcjl commented on 2017-06-05 09:05

Yes, it got stuck at the same point. But with your latest commit everything works fine.
Thanks a lot for your effort. Cheers.
