Consider using this patch to fix tray functionality on arch.

A debian specific check is done in the js code to check that libappindicator1 is installed which always fails on non-debian systems. This patch simply bypasses the check.

If libnotify isn't installed, then the webtorrent window will close without killing the process. You could add libnotify to the dependencies to prevent this.

Updated to include `npm install` during the build process which installs some missing dependencies. Building using a helper like yaourt works fines as well.

@duttondj I have this Error -
other version of webtorrent-desktop in AUR is useless.

Untested with helpers (yaourt), the non-git version of webtorrent-desktop seemed to have issues with installing via a helper.
