Package spits out a large "node-gyp" related stack trace when trying to install. Might take a stab at updating the PKGBUILD. I have minimal shell experience and minimal PKGBUILD experience so no promises.

==> build() を開始...
  return process.dlopen(module, path.toNamespacedPath(filename));

Error: /usr/lib/node_modules/atom-package-manager/node_modules/git-utils/build/Release/git.node: undefined symbol: _ZN2v82V818GlobalizeReferenceEPNS_8internal7IsolateEPm

I get this error on install... any idea?

Just a sync with the community PKGBUILD. Dunno if this still does work

Hi, I am getting this error during build , Probably has to do with electron version?

For a full transparent theme, Tia UI is recommended, which is written for this transparent patched atom.

To save time on building, a prebuilt version is available on archlinuxcn repo(packaged by frantic1048).

NOTICE: This package(aur/atom-editor-transparent) will no longer be maintained, and replaced by aur/atom-transparent.


Sorry guys, I'm so late. Because of busy working recently.

I made a new atom-transparent package, which is based on community/atom, with the transparency patch. It means easier building(no AUR dep, separated apm and electron dependencies).

Additionally, if you want to save time on building, a prebuilt version is available on archlinuxcn repo(also maintained by frantic1048).

There is a fix to make it work with atom 1.19.x: In the user's stylesheet, you should set alpha background for the html element as well.

As they noted, this feature is not officially supported. I'm not sure this feature will get a chance to be accepted on upstream.

Alad commented on 2017-09-27 16:21 (UTC)

Did you propose these patches upstream? Maybe they could help you adapt it to newer Atom versions.

I found a simpler working way to do the patching. New package would be available in this week.



Atom 1.19.x have some issue with the current transparent patch: the background becomes black and never transparent. Need investigating atom and electron(1.18 to 1.19 upgrades electron from 1.3.15 to 1.6.9) to see what leads to the issue.

I tried 1.19.0 to 1.19.3, all of them does not work well.

I'm using this for daily work thus I will keep finding the way to resolve it. But I don't have much spare time to focus on this. If anyone could help is appreciated :)

@raininja Confirmed, it is `frame: false` option (which disables window frame) caused that. I turned it back to `true` in

raininja commented on 2017-06-09 17:56 (UTC)

I built this is as and I had no menu bar and no borders were assigned from the DE. Rebuilt it with out the two patches and it works fine. Just a heads up from my results.
