It is required to install libindicator-gtk3 to view the system tray icon (using the appIndicator-support plugin). Could you please add it as an optional dependency?

I also get the 'wrong chrome version' warning when I start WhatsApp. I've worked around by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+I to open the chrome developer console and execute the following javascript

navigator.serviceWorker.getRegistration().then(r => { r.unregister(); document.location.reload() });

I have the same problem as @wyre stated below. whatsapp detects a "wrong chrome version" but after deleting ~/.config/whats-app-nativefier-d52542/ and reconnecting whatsapp web, it works again until the next restart.

I have to delete ~/.config/whats-app-nativefier-d52542/ every time I start whatsapp. Why is happening that? Could be fixed?

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}

Hello,

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Looks like the nativefier build command is outdated.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!
