Hi, I installed the package using yay on arch linux but for some reason it doesn't start the gui. The cli interface works.

When trying to open the gui the following message appears: (Can you help me with that?) (error message too long and I can't format it here)

Thanks, ProtonMail did not send me an email with the updated Bridge...

Link is dead.

Seems like the new link is

I have been unable to install the package on my own, I really need this to be updated

@physkets, technically yes, but most closed sourced packages (e.g. spotify) do not include the '-bin' suffix, as proprietery software are always binaries by definition. I do not expect that ProtonMail releases the source code of the Bridge, but if they do I will update this package to compile form source.

Shouldn't the name of this package end with a "-bin"? To prepare for a time when ProtonMail release the source for the application. This package can still stay on.

This is awesome, thank you!

This updated completely wiped my ProtonMail Bridge configuration. Has anyone else experience this?

EDIT: upon further inspection it turns out that after logging into the bridge again with my PM credentials, and changing to split addresses mode I need to open the account configuration for each of my aliases again and enter new passwords into Thunderbird. Not a complete wipe, but annoying nevertheless, especially if this is going to happen with every single update.

@gammahermit, ProtonMail just released an update, I updated the package.

The source package is no longer available from the protonmail site. Edit: updating the version to 1.0.4 in the PKGBUILD fixes it.

@samhh, I would contact ProtonMail about the issue. If the issue is about a missing dependency or another packaging issue I will update the PKGBUILD, but all the dependencies in the official one are included (either explicitly or implicitly).
