Can someone create element-desktop-bin from the Debian package? I have modified this package and run 1.11.16 now. I can no longer build community/element-desktop.

Seems like the install path has changed. It's /opt/Element now instead of /opt/Element-Nightly

Sorry everyone for the broken builds, I borked applying the LD_PRELOAD workaround again and didn't have time to fix it immediately.

It's fixed now!

The checksum needs to be fixed by running updpksums.

edit: now fixed with a cleanbuild!

I'm having trouble with the new SHA-256 sum. Should the sum not still be cf5a93..., rather than eec30...? On my machine, this new sum spurs a failed validity check.

That is not possible. The patch for element-desktop alters the compilation process, but this package uses the already-compiled deb from upstream.

To get the fix into this package, the upstream build process would have to be changed, see

Alternatively, you could use element-desktop-git and ask the maintainers of that package to include the patch.

Please fix the issue like it was fixed in the stable edition:

Worth mentioning that the LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/ might cause crashes since upgrading from electron 13 to 15++:

Without that, search in encrypted rooms doesn't work, but crashes are even worse.

Thanks for your hints. I have adjusted the PKGBUILD my auto-updater uses, so the .desktop file now uses the correct start script.

Sorry for taking so long, I must have missed the notification about your comments in my inbox.

Yes, it should be running the /usr/bin script, this needs to be added to package():

What I couldn't solve till now is the desktop entry generated for auto start from inside the app when it gets enabled. In source form, this can be changed here:
