Just an FYI on certain warnings appearing during the installation:

  • Warning about optional dependencies -> Bug in npm ignoring the --no-optional flag (https://github.com/npm/npm/issues/17633)

  • Reference to $srcdir ... -> Again unwanted behaviour in npm which saves absolute paths in the package.json file (https://github.com/npm/npm/issues/10393). These warnings can safely be ignored since package.json is not used after installation.

  • Security alerts -> Upstream issue, I'll try looking into it and fix things where possible

@clone1612 Sorry, my mistake. In file system I store my notes in subfolders of the Boostnote folder. In the settings, I added the subfolders manually, and it works fine.

@vczm Hmm, strange. I've tested it and the upgrade went without any issues. Is there anything visible on the Developer Tools console? Ctrl+Shift+I

After update to 0.11.6-1 the notes directory was reset to default. In settings I tried to add directory with my notes, but no got the expected result (message returned - No Folders).

@clone1612, thanks! Replacing pacaur works!

As mentioned in the linked forum topic pacaur is now unmaintained. Due to Pacman 5.1 introducing new breaking changes you should switch to a new AUR helper since pacaur won't be fixed.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AUR_helpers#Active has a very nice comparison between actively maintained helpers and their features. pikaur & yay should both be drop-in replacements for pacaur.

@clone1612, I'm using pacaur. It seems installing pacman-contrib doesn't help, still the same error.

clone1612 commented on 2018-06-02 06:48

Hey @elgs, that's not an error related to this package. It's something with your AUR helper due to the recent Pacman update. In https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=237513 the same error appears.

What AUR helper are you currently using?

EDIT: You can try installing pacman-contrib (https://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/pacman-contrib/) and see if that fixes things, since a lot of utilities where switched from Pacman to a separate package.

I ended up with the error message above, but it didn't say which dependencies are missing.

Regarding the update to v0.11.5 I need to wait until they tag the release on the source repository (see https://github.com/BoostIO/Boostnote/issues/1946).
