I don't see any benefit to moving to the tarball. We've already had problems in the past with upstream breaking the package. They've gotten better, but the tarball will break the package after every release. It looks like someone else wanted to do that too.

We've also tried using system electron before. I see now that there is now an electron2 package that might work, but it will take some experimentation.

The gconf dependency is based off of what is documented in the Debian package. It may no longer be accurate, but it did depend on it at one time and still shows in the latest debian package. I'll have to look into the dependencies. I'm not sure about the gtk3 and nss dependencies. lists the dependencies for electron2. That might be the best way to go.

I've updated my PKGBUILD again. It now used the archlinux electron. The package size got reduced by 160mb from ~200mb to ~39mb now.

I want to suggest a PKGBUILD change:

I've used the tarball instead of the debian package, because that is more neutral. The downside is, that it is not versioned, but maybe we can arrange better links with upstream in the future.

Also I've added the gtk3 and nss dependency and removed the not required gconf dependency. Correct me if I am wrong. I've also made sure license files etc are in the correct place.

Can you please tell me why you used the 2 chmods?

@alf That path gets updated with the latest version without warning. That would make it so every time there was an update, this AUR package would fail to build until the AUR package gets updated with the new checksum.

why don't we use instead of

here is my setup

@duckbrain thank you very much! you are right, this is the latest version.

duckbrain commented on 2019-03-09 17:24

@JohnRobson Where are you seeing that? It's already at 0.9.65? doesn't make any sense. Also, you don't need to post a comment when you flag it as out of date. I get an email for each.

@duckbrain wow, that was really quick and solved it. Thanks!

duckbrain commented on 2018-11-03 19:55

@irgendwr Yeah, it's causing more problems than it solves. I reverted back to the binary release.

@duckbrain >I prefer having the electron dependency, unless it causes a problem.

Using the electron dependency is currently causing a problem since typora is bundled with and depends on electron 3.x while the electron dependency here is on 2.x. See and

Can you at least temporarily use the bundled electron until 3.x is available to fix the issues?
