Thanks! Added gconf as a dependency.

'gconf' should be added as dependency. Didn't have it installed and it outputted "abricotine: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

@heddson you need to use the assignment operator with --devdir (e.g. --devdir="${srcdir}/devdir" ) in contrast to the --cache switch which requires space between variable to key, but it partially works, only for .electron-gyp while it supposed to put also the headers from.node-gyp there.

I haven't confirmed it with the code but I remember reading in some pr comment that anything that npm doesn't understand it just pass and doesn't parse by itself, so I guess it is why the assignment sign is needed, to follow the variable passing format required by node-gyp (see Command Options in ).

Yeah, I couldn't get --devdir to work.. but NODE_GYP_BUILD_DIR looks promising!

Updated the PKGBUILD.

@heddson use --cache command switch as it's specific npm variable, and doesn't affect/seeping to the built package. $HOME is too generic and might have undesired effect (though probably not but it's not a good packaging practice in my taste)

in theory --devdir flag should set the .npm-gyp folder but it doesn't seem to work correctly.

another related gh pr that worth keeping an eye on is

dhead666: Thanks for that tip! --cache works great.

I tried to find a good way to remove the other dot-folders (.electron...). The only way I found was setting HOME="${srcdir}/cache" in the PKGBUILD. I suppose that's not very good packaging practice either, but it's effective :) . Removes everything. I acually don't get why makepkg uses the users home-dir..

What do you think would be best, --cache or setting HOME?

dhead666 commented on 2017-01-19 11:44

please add --cache "${srcdir}/npm-cache" flag so as default the package won't let npm to litter $HOME with unnecessary thousand of files.

we can manually set ~/.npmrc but I think it's a bad packaging practice to leave it like that.

p.s. this still leaves ~/{.electron,.electron-gyp,.node-gyp}

gnacho: I updated the .desktop file. Reinstall the pkg and it should work.

z3ntu: I read the comments on the github issue. Stange. Works fine here.. But I'm glad you found a workaround!

gnacho commented on 2016-09-16 15:37

How to use by default to open .md files? Gnome 3.22 doesn't show it in the list of programs... :(

python2 is a (build) dependency!

EDIT: After manually installing python2 (NOT python(3)!) I get the error in a completely clean chroot (where every build should work):
See for more info.

EDIT 2: I have found a workaround for now! Install (or "npm install -g electron-rebuild") and build this!
