Can you add to an .install-file a post install message printing something like

Before first use, you need to create "${HOME}/.config/captive-browser.toml".
You can use '/usr/share/captive-browser/example/captive-browser.toml' as a template and edit it to your needs (e.g. configuring the browser to use).

Now, when the user starts captive-browser after installation, there is just an error message like

2020/07/22 11:53:28 Failed to read config: open /home/user/.config/captive-browser.toml: no such file or directory

and no hint what to do (captive-browser --help does also not give any hint how this config file should look).

The depends=google-chrome should be removed - it is not a necessary dependency. The optdepends already contains google-chrome and chromium, which is the correct behaviour - both are just optional dependencies.

It definitely works with chromium. The depends=google-chrome is a bit nasty. But perhaps there is not way to say depends=google-chrome OR chromium? That's something that's supposed to be solved using provides. But I don't think the chromium pkg will get a provides=google-chrome (or the opposite) :}

Is it possible to run this with Brave, since it's chromium based?

Thanks for this, works well for a little edge case. If you were so inclined, you might add chromium as an optdepends, or put both chrome and chromium as such. I modified the pkgbuild and .toml file before running, as I have only chromium installed at the moment, and everything works as expected.
