This and all other elecronNN-bin packages should NOT have provides=(electron), only provides=(electronNN). Please remove these as they are causing a mess all over the Electron ecosystem since the upstream change to the electron meta package approach. This may have originally made sense, but it definitely does not now. The only package that should provide that from the AUR is the electron-bin package which is a direct replacement for electron without a version. That provision on these versioned package is going to lock people using anything that does want the sliding version of Electron into whatever version they happen to have installed and also in some cases block installing multiple Electron apps that require different versions. Additionally it is screwing up AUR helpers trying to resolve dependencies.

Hey, would you mind packaging this like the official Electron packages are? I.e. add the following launcher script that reads config files, among other things:

$ cat /usr/bin/electron25

set -euo pipefail


declare -a flags

if [[ -f "${flags_file}" ]]; then
    mapfile -t < "${flags_file}"

for line in "${MAPFILE[@]}"; do
    if [[ ! "${line}" =~ ^[[:space:]]*#.* ]] && [[ -n "${line}" ]]; then

exec /usr/lib/${name}/electron "${flags[@]}" "$@"

Feel free to add me as co-maintainer if you'd like me to do it.

@yurikoles: If you can't be bothered to update your Electron packages in a timely manner, then please orphan them so others can do it. A binary package version bump takes no time at all.

You should be aware that the current version of 26.0.0.beta.2 is considered newer by pacman than the future stable version of 26.0.0.

The following is true as per pacman's vercmp:

26.0.0beta < 26.0.0 < 26.0.0.beta
