To add to @madis's comment: the new path of the binary is /opt/github-desktop/github-desktop. Currently launching via the .desktop file or the /usr/bin/github-desktop script is broken.

Note that the repo url has changed to shiftkey/desktop is now shiftkey's personal fork. [EDIT: my bad; shiftkey's fork is what provides linux support. Sorry]

Building errors are due to nodejs v10 in arch repository. Github desktop is developed with node v8.

adding nvm to makedepends and modifying build section to use nvm to change node version used during build should resolve this issue

build() {

cd desktop

source /usr/share/nvm/

nvm install --lts

nvm use --lts

export DISPLAY=':99.0'

Xvfb :99 -screen 0 1024x768x24 > /dev/null 2>&1 &

yarn install

yarn build:prod

nvm deactivate

help me to install github desktop

For github-desktop-git, downgrade nodejs to official repo version:

nodejs-lts-carbon 8.11.1-1 source:

Will enable the git version of this package to build. Have not tried this version yet.

immackay, if confirmed to fix this version, 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.
