@davidhaller: thanks for the answer I was aware of the unstable/testing/stable branch distinction but not the AUR/Arch vs. Manjaro limitation. Uninstall/reinstall did the trick and it now properly launch. Thank you for the quick follow-up!

@Delan: The package was updated to be compatible with the new electron version in Arch Linux. Since Manjaro lacks a few weeks behind Arch Linux, it still has the old electron version. I'm not familiar with Manjaro, but iirc they have an unstable/testing branch, maybe you could try a new electron version from here, or you could just build this package without the new patch and wait until Manjaro gets the new electron version.

(Please remember: Officially, the AUR only supports Arch Linux)

Hi, following the last update on Manjaro, Standard Notes doesn't launch anymore. I copied the logs here:, I'll try the uninstall/reinstall and edit the comment with the outcomes.

Remark: I don't know if it's relevant, but during the last update, the GUI of Pamac disappeared (however the package manager was still running since I couldn't relaunch the update from another instance of Pamac). To properly update the two AUR packages (Tor and Standard Notes) I had to go through the CLI (no modification of build files). Log are provided here:

Dear @rjocoleman, thanks for submitting the patch. Nice one!

I added it to package release 2 of version 3.0.12. So from now on there shouldn't be a need for users to patch their AUR package locally.

Sorry for any inconvenience caused trough this messed-up package release. I normally test my builds locally before releasing a new package version. This one somehow glitched into the repo without proper testing. I blame this one on me even though its an upstream issue. The broken version shouldn't have made it into the AUR repo..

@rjocoleman: Thanks for the patch, great work!

Hello @FillFelle, thanks for this package! As of latest release it's crashing due to the build happening with a newer version of Electron than upstream currently supports.

There is a defensive PR upstream ( to deal with this but in the mean time here's a patch for this package that integrates it directly.

(git apply standardnotes-desktop-aur-deprecation.patch)

FYI I was getting the error

'prebuild-install' command not found

so I installed it using

npm i -g prebuild-install

not sure why this wasn't captured in the yarn installation process, but it works now.

@knokelmaat thanks for the quick feedback. I updated the PKGBUILD accordingly.

@FollFeile I can confirm that installing node-gyp did the trick. I had exactly the same error as tinhtruong and this solved it, so you can update the package! Thanks for the quick fix!

@tinhtruong - thank you for using this package! It looks like your setup is lacking the node-gyp package. Actually there is some discussion on the yarn side if this dependency should be handle by the application itself or by yarn.

Nevertheless, could you try the following and see if it fixes your error?

sudo pacman -S node-gyp

Please let me know if this fixes the issue, if so I will update the package accordingly.
