Recommendation: install the binary version, github-desktop-bin.

Compiling this is painful.

I'm getting

/usr/bin/github-desktop: line 3: /opt/github-desktop/github-desktop: Is a directory

it looks like the path to the executable changed to

/opt/github-desktop/github-desktop/github-desktop

i had to edit the shell script at /usr/bin/github-desktop but this is only a temporary fix

I'm getting the following buuld error (using a clean build environment with aurutils):

Packaging…

}
error Command failed with exit code 1.

[EDIT] I figured it out. unzip is a build dependency. Could you please add it to makedepends? That should fix the issue and prevent an issue for other people who build in a clean env or don't have it installed.

For some reason doing as advised by @marlock87 did not work for me. I had to manually install nvm and configure it before installing github-desktop from AUR. These are the commands I had to run:

yay nvm # or whatever AUR helper you are using

source /usr/share/nvm/init-nvm.sh

nvm install --lts

nvm use --lts

yay github-desktop # or whatever AUR helper you are using

nvm deactivate

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 github.com/desktop/desktop. shiftkey/desktop is now shiftkey's personal fork. [EDIT: my bad; shiftkey's fork is what provides linux support. Sorry]
