Could you maybe set the startup background color with nativifier --background-color (#1f232a works fine)? Now there is a big flash of white at startup, and given that I use this app to avoid annoyances to the eyes, this would be beneficial.

Cleared the cache but still getting the same error, it it help the non dark version of whatsapp-nativefier builds fine. only the dark versioni gives me this error.

Hi Zott.

This seems some sort of cache.

Try to clean the cache folder of your AUR helper tool.

Hi, even with the newer version i get this error:

==> Starting package()...
cp: cannot stat '/tmp/makepkg/whatsapp-nativefier-dark/src/whats-app-linux-*': No such file or directory
how do I install?

There's this message when I open the app telling me to 'please switch to v2 because v1 is unsupported'. Are you aware of that?

Love it <3 thanks :)

Thank you for the feedback.

I've just published a new version using the image you've put the link. The only change I made was to remove the white border, adding transparency in its place.

About the icon: I'm pretty sure the StartupWMClass fix actually also fixed the icon. At least when I fixed it manually it looked fine for me in GNOME Dash to Dock.

Hello, first of all thanks for keeping this updated

I see you changed the icon, it is now not pixelated. One issue though, being it mostly black, it causes issues on dark themes

Using a version with a white outline and a dark color in the center would fix the issue (or just using default whatsapp colors)

Something like this for example

If you want, i could easily make one

Hi ColonelPhantom.

Regarding the emoji have a white background, this is a known issue for now. Will try a fix later.

Regarding the StartupWMClass it should be fixed in the last version.
