If you get the following error at update time:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
franz-bin: /usr/bin/franz exists in filesystem

Simply do:

sudo pacman -Rcs franz-bin
sudo rm /usr/bin/franz

And install franz-bin again.

The problem is that in previous version the /usr/bin/franz was created by the install file, this is bad idea because the package system don't know who owns this file. This is fixed in current version.

It's not free. You have to pay a monthly fee to use it

I think you have to add "provides=('franz')" to not conflict with other franz packages...

I noticed that since some time there is no systray icon for franz (5.5.0-2). Is there anything that needs to be additionally installed to get the icon in notification area? (btw.using i3wm)

Hello I'm unable to update Franz, I get this message ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

I've tried different times, I've tried removing Franz and reinstalling. but nothing works. What can I do? I'm on Kernel 4.19.60-1-MANJARO x86_64 and my Manjaro is up to date.

Here's the full build attempt:

I could not install version 5.0.0-1 using yay (AUR helper) because it "thinks" 5.0.0_beta.24-1 is newer:

" -> franz-bin: local (5.0.0_beta.24-1) is newer than AUR (5.0.0-1)"

[IMHO that happens because char "_" (005F) is bigger than "-" (002D)]
