Hi franciscocpg,

The package works well, except that emoji have a white background rather than blending in with the theme. Screenshot:

Furthermore, the StartupWMClass in the desktop file is wrong. I managed to get pinning etc to work properly in GNOME by changing it to "whatsapp-nativefier-d52542".

the icon is still pixelated on gnome dash to dock. instead of using the same icon for the .desktop, it creates a new low quality icon for display and stands side by side with the .desktop icon on the dock

Hi Franciscocpg,

yes it is german, I just updated it and it works like a charm now, thank you very much!

sispus, eugen-b

It looks like nativefier has changed the way it generates the file name (see and so it broke this build.

Thank you for the feedback. It should be working now.

Hi micronetic

There is a hack to make this works

But this hack depends on the language. Currently, the languages supported are english and portuguese.

It looks like the language you posted is german right? I'm going to add a hack for this language as well.

Everything worked with the change of the lines what Eugen said but as of a few minutes ago I got a new problem:

sispus commented on 2020-01-29 09:12

as eugen said line 41 in PKGBUILD should be changed to: cp -rL "${srcdir}/WhatsApp-linux-"* "${pkgdir}/opt/${pkgname}"

and line 42 should be changed to: ln -s "/opt/${pkgname}/WhatsApp" "${pkgdir}/usr/bin/${pkgname}"

changing line 41 allow me to install, but .desktop file won't work.

According to line 41 in PKGBUILD should be changed to: cp -rL "${srcdir}/WhatsApp-linux-"* "${pkgdir}/opt/${pkgname}"

Hi Antergos.

You're right. This package uses

The message you've mentioned comes from here:

Not sure why the author decided to keep it since it's confusing.

Regarding the icon, I'm not sure what is happening. Like I've mentioned before, this package is a clone of so it uses the same icon from that package with changes in the CSS only.

I use the deepin-dock and I don't see any problem with the icon.
