@ritwick I just rebuilt the package and everything went well.

Seems something was wrong with your machine, as there was some process exiting and unable to set locale stuff.

Anyone experiencing build fail?

Error: npm exited with code 1 Output:

macos-notification-state@1.2.0 install /home/ritwick/.cache/yay/franz/src/franz/build/node_modules/macos-notification-state node-gyp rebuild

complete output:

@ItachiSan It's done. Specified Electron 3.1.6 and build succeeded. No more blue screen too. Thanks for your work mate.

Ok then @archieslove, can you change the PKGBUILD and echo the electron_version variable in the prepare function?

My guess is that it parses both the versions of electron and electron2.

If it is correct, I have a proper fix for that!

@ThaChillera glad it finally works for you :)

@archieslove I think I might know the issue; can dig into it tonight. Can you give me the output of pacman -Qs electron ? Just to confirm my idea.

ThaChillera commented on 2019-04-01 07:18

@ItachiSan Fixed, thanks for the hard work :)

Looks like there's a minor error.

sed: -e expression #1, char 34: unterminated `s' command ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare(). Aborting...

@ThaChillera @nubzzz @Kabir and @wingsuit now it should work as intended; the version of Electron that is used during the build is the one installed locally and not the one online, which might be tracking unreleased builds. :)

@ThaChillera @nubzzz @Kabir and @wingsuit I had the blue screen issue previously; I found out there was an issue with the compilation of the Node.js binary modules as the desired upstream version and ArchLinux's version of Electron differ.

In order to solve that (at least on my side), I added the check for the Electron version in the PKGBUILD (see line 39).

I am not sure about building right now the package, as I was and still am busy (currently not at home); I hope/think I will have some more time with the incoming week and will make some tests building the package.
