ATTN: The hard dependency on gnome-keyring has finally been relaxed. I have not tested this thoroughly; your mileage may vary.

For whom it may concern: this package depends on Shiftkey's linux support fork, located at

I check this regularly for releases. If you want the newest version, I suggest you check out github-desktop-git and modify the PKGBUILD to use the base repository, with the understanding that the application takes a significant amount of RAM to build.

I write a wrapper script which adds the support of github-desktop-flags.conf like chromium.

Here is the script



# Allow users to override command-line options
if [[ -f "${XDG_CONFIG_HOME}/github-desktop-flags.conf" ]]; then
    mapfile -t GITHUB_DESKTOP_USER_FLAGS <<< "$(grep -v '^#' "${XDG_CONFIG_HOME}/github-desktop-flags.conf")"
    echo "User flags:" "${GITHUB_DESKTOP_USER_FLAGS[@]}"

# Launch Github Desktop with the given flags
exec /opt/github-desktop/github-desktop "${GITHUB_DESKTOP_USER_FLAGS[@]}" "$@"

I hope this can be merged into this package.

I'm using KeepassXC instead of gnome-keyring, works like a charm!

ATTN: The 3.2.6 release has been skipped because there were no binary packages built for that release.

Why is it using unzip? in system there is unar which is much better (such as encoding support)

Could you add xxx-flag.conf support like chrome/edge/electron/code? This would e.g. make it easy to run GitHub Desktop on Wayland: --enable-features=WaylandWindowDecorations --ozone-platform=wayland

@fanninpm thanks, I'll try to switch and say if it helps

@Raiden0456 I experienced a similar problem with vscodium-bin, and I solved it by switching over to the Chaotic-AUR for a time.

@fanninpm yes i did a pacman -Sc and checked cache folder for any remaining cache files, sadly this did not help. it seems like something is wrong with sha256sums first long number.

fanninpm commented on 2022-04-05 19:35 (UTC)

@Raiden0456 have you tried cleaning the package cache for both pacman and your AUR helper?
