Latest version should have all the required dependencies.

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

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

Hmm, hcjl, does yours get stuck at the same spot? Installing app dependencies?

I pushed a new commit, this is working for me both with & without a home directory.

Let me know if it works or you see the same issue.

I have the same problem as alfredo.ardito. It is running for over 4 hours now. I am using plain makepkg in an empty directory on an AMD Ryzen 7 1800X.
Thx & Cheers,

Using yaourt and gave up after more than an hour.
I'll try again with a user having a home directory. I'll let you know

lysergia commented on 2017-06-04 13:07

What AUR package manager are you using?

Tried to fix this, but npm & electron love to stick things your home folder, which makes it difficult to build for users with no home directory.

How long did you wait before giving up?

Tried again after last commit. This time it hangs and doesn't go on without displaying error messages, It hangs here:
