@PRAGMA Changing the git describe line to

git describe --long --tags --always release-2.5.0-linux2 | sed 's/^release.//;s/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g'

fixes it.

@PRAGMA Yes right ! You can use the AppImage from the repo ( for the lastest version.

Attempting to install this on my machine results in it initially installing latest version, but then ends up installing github-desktop-git-1.5.0.r6639.g5d21312a1-1 which is 2 years old now?

Warning: Building this uses around 5GB of RAM, so be sure you have enough free before starting. Only takes around 5 minutes on a Zen 1 Quad Core.

Downgrade nodejs to official repo version:

nodejs-lts-carbon 8.11.1-1 source:

Will enable this package to build.

immackay, could you either add this to the makedepends and/or remove or replace nodejs to nodejs-lts-carbon in depends?

These two packages are in conflict with each other.

Won't build. File path error.

Had to do the following to build package:

sudo mkdir -p /usr/lib/node_modules/npm/node_modules/node-gyp/bin/

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/node_modules/node-gyp/bin/node-gyp.js /usr/lib/node_modules/npm/node_modules/node-gyp/bin/node-gyp.js


makepkg -s


error /home/cody/z-AUR-Aurt/github-desktop-git/src/desktop/app/node_modules/keytar: Command failed.
