Hello dixi_minga,

It is only when Whatsapp is maximized before closing the app that it open in a window at the next launch (it is the same with Signal since last update of electron) and it could be an electron bug.

I'm on latest Manjaro Xfce stable.

@Armag67: thanks for the reminder

but for me it works: {"name":"whats-app",..,"tray":"start-in-tray",...,"darwinDarkModeSupport":false}

With today upgrade, /opt/whatsapp-nativefier/resources/app/nativefier.json change from "tray":false (or "tray":true) to "tray":"start-in-tray" does not work anymore, Whatsapp always opens in window or in full screen, but not in systray only.

why are you installing the files with 755 permission. why should those files have execute permission?

It does not work anymore because whatsapp web shows a wrong chrome version error when launching whatsapp-nativefier.

Looks like the nativefier build command is outdated. People on GitHub got it working again by adding --clear-cache and using electron version 6.0.9 (-e).

@frealgagu could you please update the PKGBUILD script? Thanks a lot!

whatsapp-nativefier [21539:0828/] The SUID sandbox helper binary was found, but is not configured correctly. Rather than run without sandboxing I'm aborting now. You need to make sure that /opt/whatsapp-nativefier/chrome-sandbox is owned by root and has mode 4755. Παγίδα Trace/breakpoint (core dumped)

When I play voice recordings, I do not get any sound. A sink pops up in pavucontrol but it does not have any volume. Notification sounds are played properly in comparison.

@yoburtu Try to use makepkg directly and tell me what happens.
