Note that starting with the latest version of tusk, they now include a pacman package which can be installed with:

pacman -U ./tusk-0.23.0.pacman

Where ./tusk-0.23.0.pacman is a file in your current directory

I had some trouble with electron 4.x lately.

My solution was a PKGBUILD like this:

# Maintainer: Bruno Azisaka <>
pkgdesc="Refined Evernote desktop app"

build() { tusk-$pkgver.$arch.rpm

package() {
  cd "${srcdir}/opt/Tusk"

  install -Dm644 -t "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/${pkgname}" ./*.pak ./*.dat ./*.bin ./*.so
  install -Dm644 -t "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/${pkgname}/locales" ./locales/*
  install -Dm644 -t "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/${pkgname}/resources" ./resources/*
  install -Dm755 -t "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/${pkgname}" ./${pkgname}

  install -dm755 "${pkgdir}/usr/bin"
  ln -sf "/usr/lib/${pkgname}/${pkgname}" "${pkgdir}/usr/bin/${pkgname}"

  install -Dm644 "${srcdir}/${pkgname}.desktop" "${pkgdir}/usr/share/applications/${pkgname}.desktop"

I'm using your tusk.desktop file. It's more secure to use the binary version from

I had the warning too, but could update without issues. My repo is just an updated version of this repo, based on liberodark's PKGBUILD, and indeed, tusk-bin is a better package name as it pulls in the debian build from github releases. As the current update for this repo rewrites PKGBUILD to use electron-builder quite differs from the older version, I think it's best to use this aur repo if possible.

i have the warning as well. however that shouldn't interrupt the building of the package. besides this and a warning related to $srcdir reference the package currently builds flawless in chroot.

if you still have problems try the PKGBUILD from RPDiep (which should be the tusk-bin package imho)

Sorry, Error when update

npm WARN acorn-jsx@5.0.1 requires a peer of acorn@^6.0.0 but none is installed. You must install peer dependencies yourself.

==> ERROR: unable to update

Need lib32-gconf dependency

There seems to be a bug in tusk that prompts users to download a newer version.

However, there's no newer version in the official website, it looks like a bug.

WhyNotHugo commented on 2018-10-08 03:10

Can you add a symlink to /usr/bin/tusk to this package?

mkdir -p "$pkgdir/usr/bin/"
ln -sf "$pkgdir/opt/Tusk/tusk-app" "$pkgdir/usr/bin/tusk-app"

Most packages leave either a binary, or a symlink there, rather than leave that sort of step to be done manually (and running the app via the full path is just odd).
