Hi Zyrac.

This package is just a wrapper around https://web.whatsapp.com/ changing the css style to a dark theme (https://userstyles.org/styles/142096/dark-whatsapp-by-vednoc) and using nativefier (https://github.com/jiahaog/nativefier) to make it as a native app for linux. It does not add or change any feature that https://web.whatsapp.com/ has.

So if you access https://web.whatsapp.com/ you'll see that currently it does not have an option to do what you want (select your own wallpapers in png or jpg).

Just a hint: if you change the wallpaper in the mobile app, it will change on the desktop as well. But I'm not sure is that what you want.

Excellent app, Thanks @franciscocpg Could I make a suggestion? In the chat wallpaper menu would it be possible to add a link so one could select there own wallpapers in png or jpg. Never the less an excellent app and keep up the good work. Regards Zyrac.

Hi Zott.

Personally, I use yay but the link below may help. https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php/Pamac#Updating_the_System

for some reason pamac-manager won't give me the updates. The aur package is still the 0.20200221002211-5 version. How can I update?

everything works fine now!

@rien333

Version 0.20200327232900-1 should fix it.

The theme doesn't seem to apply cleanly anymore, even after deleting the app's cache (which for whatever reason seems to largely reside in ~/.config). For example, the search bar is now white.

Hi sispus.

No problem. Let me try to explain.

Before, this package was using the nodejs-nativefier from AUR to build which means that it was using the latest available version.

As you can see here (https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/log/?h=nodejs-nativefier), 3 days ago nodejs-nativefier was updated from version 7.7.1 from to 8.0.4. After this update, building this package causes the dark theme to not be applied.

So I started to use yarn to install nodejs-nativefier with version 7.7.1 pinned while I don't have time to investigate the issue. Ideally I should investigate what is causing the problem with version 8.0.4 and revert to use the nodejs-nativefier package from AUR again.

nope, same. I'm not sure I have nodejs-nativefier 7.7.1 installed. I have 8.0.4. Is it normal? edit: i think yarn is for that. sorry for my not-knowing anything :)
