If you'd like the old PKGBUILDs to keep working and not 404, please upvote this issue asking Signal team to not delete old packages: https://github.com/signalapp/Signal-Desktop/issues/2882

SHA256 checksum for version 1.34.5-beta.1 deb file that's on the server now. ea6a25513c339fda23df72bf7c04cce624f6716a4849ee09026c57af96e07e2a

Change beta.1 to beta.5 in the .deb link and change the checksum in the PKGBUILD and it compiled and upgraded for me.

@captn3m0 it also works on my second machine. Which has an almost identical setup. Biggest difference is Gnome runs with wayland.

@lenok: I've tested, and this package (signal-desktop-beta-bin) definitely works. Maybe create an issue upstream? https://github.com/signalapp/Signal-Desktop/issues/new

Both signal-desktop and signal-desktop-beta are not starting, with this error:

Seems like a similar issue to what @kohrVid has pointed out is happening with 1.32.0 beta 4 - only beta 5 is available.

@captn3m0 Thanks for writing this as it's worked quite well for me in the past. It looks like signal released a new version of the desktop client last night and deleted the old one so this doesn't work anymore. I think the PKGBUILD file needs the following added:

pkgver=1.31.0beta.2
source=("<https://updates.signal.org/desktop/apt/pool/main/s/signal-desktop-beta/signal-desktop-beta_1.31.0-beta.2_amd64.deb>")
sha256sums=('8f70aa5b3644a6e75273bf075113d55b4cfa8cd4f1f010a45928f4f5976b1d29')

Verified that there are no conflicts between signal-desktop and signal-desktop-beta, and now this package provides signal-desktop-beta instead.

I think this should either not provide signal-desktop (perhaps provide e.g. signal-desktop-beta), or be set up in a different way so that it doesn't conflict with https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/signal-desktop-bin. The reason is that production and beta versions do not conflict and use different data locations (see https://github.com/signalapp/Signal-Desktop/#install-the-beta).

if any of you are in need of the package, just go to https://github.com/signalapp/Signal-Desktop/releases and check for the current release and the modify this PKGBUILD to use the current version and skip the integrity check.
