I'm talking about the AUR package for that version of electron (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/electron20). I'm pretty sure I'm not the only person that won't want that installed system-wide. Like I said, it's your package, do what you want, I'll maintain a binary version here (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/expresslrs-configurator-bin) for anyone that wants it.

@FryDay: It's not compiled, but there is a build process and the package is using the Electron version used by upstream (see https://github.com/ExpressLRS/ExpressLRS-Configurator/blob/master/package.json#L267)

If this was a compiled program, sure, maybe. But instead you have an outdated and unmaintained version of electron as a dependency instead of using the dependency versions the project is designed for? It's your package, so you can do whatever you want, but I really don't think this is the correct way to install this program.

@FryDay: Building from source and using system dependencies is preferred when possible.

Why make the PKGBUILD so complex? The ExpressLRS project has already gone through the trouble of creating a pacman package for us, why reinvent the wheel?

@Akholic: Until someone adopts and fixes the electron20 package, you can use electron20-bin.

Akholic commented on 2023-08-08 13:28 (UTC)

for everyone who got the "failed to build electron20 dependency"

Fryday's approach works. for those of us wondering how to rebuild a package:

$ cd ~/.cache/yay/expresslrs-configurator/
$ vim PKGBUILD
*replace content with @FryDay code snippet*
$ makepkg -si
*continue your day*

@dpeukert Sounds good. Here is the PKGBUILD I've been using. Feel free to copy it if you want.

@FryDay: Hi, I've adopted the package a couple of weeks ago and I've got the update almost ready, just need to test if everything works. I'll hopefully get around to that this weekend. Sorry for the delay :)
