@ITwrx This package intends to make ubports installer able to run without root.

So before you run this tool, you need to install android-udev and reboot entire system first, to make udev rule working.

android-udev package inludes tons of devices and vendors, which will make you able to run adb without root permission.

You can try to stop adb.service and try to run adb devices from terminal, to check if your device is working.

@fordprefect

electron4 is both depends and make depends for this package, as the wiki below stated, it should not be dupulicate in makedepends array. You should build this package with makepkg -s

An array of packages that are only required to build the software. The minimum dependency version can be specified in the same format as in the depends array. The packages in the depends array are implicitly required to build the package, they should not be duplicated here.

electron4 seems to be a buildtime dependency, as build fails without it being installed. please verify and add.

@bruceutut I hadn't noticed that i was using 0.2.5b-2 while the latest was 0.2.5.b-3. I upgraded and now it gets past the "starting adb server" part.

sorry for the trouble.

@brucetut i'm already using android-udev as per the arch wiki and my adb works fine without root or systemd service.

ubports-installer 0.2.5b-3 hangs at "starting adb server" for me.

a few details here: https://github.com/ubports/ubports-installer/issues/852

@bruceutut Thanks. Package looking good.

@matthias.lisin
Thanks for your advice.
I will edit pkgbuild to build from source on github release page, and use system electron as well.

Hello my AUR-friend. I've been playing around wit the ubports-installer and ended up creating a -git package for it. https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/ubports-installer-git/

Turns out you don't need any root permissions since we have android-udev and you can use the system electron to run the application without any problems.

Since your package isn't suffixed with -bin, it'd be nice if you could build things from source (as recommended). Another advantage of this would be, that you can drop the gconf dependency as well as the entire foreign electron. The package itself will end up around 40MiB in size.

@Stunts `android-tools' just added.
