@yochananmarqos Right, works with pacman and only doesn't with pamac

@infinitnet: No, it doesn't.

sudo pacman -Syu electron20

@yochananmarqos upgrade to electron22 breaks gmail-desktop because of its electron20 dependency.

@yochananmarqos AFAIK it's a hint, not an error, it's okay to have multiple main categories. Re Node, I fixed this by installing a newer electron-builder, see the Gist I linked before, but I guess this is not a big deal.

@alecmev: If both Network and Office categories are added, desktop-file-validate complains, "contains more than one main category; application might appear more than once in the application menu".

I'm using Node.js 14 as it fails to build with 18.

@yochananmarqos Thanks! Re the desktop file, I believe you can have both "Office;" and "Email;". I've looked at the Debian package, and a trailing %U is missing in Exec. Why Node 14, by the way?

@alecmev: I'm using a slightly modified desktop file from the upstream Debian package. If you think it should be changed, file an issue. I replaced the Office category with Email, that makes more sense.

Hi! Please use npm instead of Yarn, they switched. Also, please use gendesk to generate the desktop file, they handle the "Email" category and add mailto-friendly flags: Here's my PKGBUILD for inspiration:

Building throws this error: Failure while downloading

@risyasin: Do a clean build. As I said, I've removed the husky dependency so you will no long have an issue either way.
