Current status from Franz:
* Twitter/Facebook/Email went silent 3 months ago
* No reaction whatsoever since then
* Also no updates/bugfixes

So I guess the project is dead and I can only recommend to switch to other solutions like rambox. I will leave this in the AUR though for people who still want to use it.
If ever an update appears again I will add it here.

Is anyone able to bring back the app window upon clicking the tray icon? For me it simply doesn't open anymore, forcing me to quit the program and re-run it. Any clues?

Most part of this app is propritetary (closed source). Please specify it.

Same problem as ArkDreamon. Skype app makes problems all the time.

Unfortunately I have no idea and upstream is not replying nor updating Franz currently...
I switched to another opensource solution on my own systems now.

Having troubles similar to @moosethemucha, I got messenger and rocketChat to work pretty easily, but skype and hangout will only show a blank white page. After relaunching the app I can see a login page but any link go to blank again.

Any idea ? Thanks a lot.

I'm unable to get any services to work other than facebook messenger. No other service plugins will load. Where can I find the logs? I am able to get other apps to work that use similar protocols ghetto-skype, skypeforlinux-bin, skype-electron.

@renodesper: There is one under /usr/share/pixmaps/franz.png which is used for the desktop symbol. The one used by the application itself is buried inside the binary.
They dont seem to use the new kde-icon standard so for some users it gets displayed weird (for some though it doesn't).


@caotic: Thats a kinda known problem. Unfortunately the easiest solution would be to do a pacman -Rns franz-bin and make sure everything got really removed then do a reinstall. I reported it upstream like a week ago but still waiting for a reply.
