Just installed the package, and I get the same blue screen. Tried running franz from the terminal but no error messages, just the blue screen.

@ThaChillera I get the same. Just installed with all the make dependencies and was left with a blue screen. Dev console shows the same as yours as well. Help us @ItachiSan you're our only hope :-P

Fresh install of Franz (never installed before), removed the make dependencies. When starting franz it only shows a blue screen, developer console gives an error. screenshot:

@everyone the package is now updated; if there is any major issue, write it here, although I tested it before uploading the changes.

Hey @FFY00, I took over the package; going to update it soon.

ItachiSan, feel free to take over. I have not been able to take the time needed to maintain my AUR packages.

The package needs a few major reworks:

  • Many dependencies are useless.
  • The package depends on Electron 2 (electron2) and not Electron 3 (electron).
  • Disabling dev mode could be done a bit cleaner (so that people can re-enable it).

My take on would be this:

It was made for the previous packaged version (beta 18).

Franz is now on version 5.0.0_beta.20.

Also please remove the make dependency on nodejs-lts-carbon. Franz compiles fine with nodejs. Same goes for the yarn dependency and npm.

Unable to install

To ensure your native dependencies are always matched electron version, simply add script "postinstall": "electron-builder install-app-deps" to yourpackage.json` At least electron-updater 4.0.0 is recommended by current electron-builder version. Please set electron-updater version to "^4.0.0"
