@jrossel, thanks for noticing. It should be fixed in 24.4.8-3.

It was caused by upstream using private drawio-dev repo for their builds, whereas OSS drawio repo contained outdated min.js.

I have once again forced rebuild of these files, so hopefully upstream won't screw this rebuild up again in the same way.

It appears that this particular build has problems regarding cropping in PDFs via the CLI, though I'm not sure why.

I initially reported to drawio directly (thinking it was a general issue), but nobody apart from people on this package could reproduce. (I also tested the AppImage on my Arch machine, where the behavior is correct as well.)

Maybe @dvalter has an idea what could cause this? Can other people using this package reproduce?

The latest build does appear to not install properly:

@dvalter this does not build on node 14 (nodejs-lts-fermium), I think the make dependency nodejs>=12 should be updated

@carsme unfortunately newer versions of electron may break some features (and at least once it did), so I prefer sticking with the same major as upstream packaging unless it's broken or not available in Arch.

drawio-desktop (22.1.16-1) does not respect any ~/.config/electron*-flags.conf

$ strace drawio &> logfile
$ cat logfile | grep newfstatat |grep config

does not show any flag read

EDIT: electron26 is electron26-bin and does not feature


So my issue is related to the electron26 package.

EDIT2: With electron28 (not -bin version) flags are respected as required. Issue resolved.

Getting a failure to build

Thanks for the quick update, unfortunately the official electron meta-package was just now updated again to v27. I don't think it's necessary to lock this package to a specific major version of Electron unless the official one is incompatible.

I think it would be OK to just depend on the meta-package electron to follow the latest available Electron in the official repositories. Thanks!

carsme commented on 2024-01-03 15:44 (UTC)

Electron v26 has been published to the official repositories, please consider depending on that instead of v25. I've confirmed that v26 fixes my previously reported issue. Thanks!
