Hi, I install it with pakku, no trouble but when launching I get this :

(electron) 'getName function' is deprecated and will be removed. Please use 'name property' instead.
App threw an error during load
TypeError: app.makeSingleInstance is not a function

This package is a lifesaver. There's no "skype" in pacman, and the "skype" from the AUR doesn't install for me. This did though. I can tell it's just an Electron wrapper around the web app. But hey, it works.
