@italoghost Thanks for the warning, I've fixed it.

Hi! Since this commit the package no longer builds due to the changes. It is necessary to change the package-only-necessary.diff file.

It was solved and now the package compiles just fine!

Hi, @picokan! I presume it was a problem with upstream, as it resolved by itself! Now there is another problem in upstream while compiling that seems to be related to the translations!

I will wait a few more days and if it is not solved until then I will open an issue!

@italoghost I can't replicate that bug, but for some reason your app.asar file is not where it should be in /usr/lib. Can you confirm the file is missing there and if reinstalling works?

Hi! When I try to launch the application, I receive the following error:

Error launching app
Unable to find Electron app at /usr/lib/freetube-git/app.asar

Cannot find module '/usr/lib/freetube-git/app.asar/dist/main.js'. Please verify that the package.json has a valid "main" entry

I wonder if it the electron dependency is mismatching the one specified on the main.js.

@curben That works pretty well, thanks!

Upstream does tagging inconsistently, the default branch is 'development' but tags newer than v0.13.1-beta are in 'master' branch. The following pkgver() grabs the latest tag and number of revisions from all branches, and the latest commit hash of the default branch.

pkgver() {
  cd "$srcdir/$_pkgname"
  printf "%s.r%s.%s" "$(git tag --sort=committerdate | tail -1 | sed 's/^v//;s/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g')" "$(git rev-list --count HEAD)" "$(git rev-parse --short=7 HEAD)"

Outputs 0.18.0.beta.r4469.4ad3ec2

Hi! They changed again the year on the build.js file, on line 44, from 2022 to 2023:


  copyright: 'Copyleft © 2020-2022',


  copyright: 'Copyleft © 2020-2023',

Could you update the package-only-necessary.diff file?

Fixed, sorry it took me so long.
