I was able to activate tray support by prepending the following flag --tray to the nativefier.

During the build, this message mv: missing target after file '/tmp/trizen-robson/google-messages/pkg/google-messages/opt/google-messages' pops up and the build is aborted.

EDIT. It turned out that in order to build the package I have to give the command LC_ALL=C makepkg -sirc, because my system has the Polish language set.

In case others run into the same issue with no tray support. /opt/Google-messages/resources/app/nativefier.json has a "tray" boolean flag.

I am not getting any tray support in KDE. Is this working for anyone else?

It's just saying that new versions of nativefier have come out since you've built this package. The solution is just to rebuild the package. Since I've updated to 1.3.0, that should happen anyway.

Edit: Ironically, the new version 1.3.0 doesn't change anything and in fact is just a newer build, fixing someone else that had this same exact error on MacOS.

I've had a popup show up telling me the version of the build of this package is old and insecure and that I should update Nativefier to a new version, what could be the correct course of action here ?

Here is the exact popup message I've encountered.

Edit 1: I've also noticed that v1.3.0 of Google Messages is out, this package seems out of date.

  • Do NOT use sudo in a PKGBUILD.
  • There are plenty of packages utilizing Nativefier in the AUR, look at them for examples. Nativefier is available as nodejs-nativefier, add it to makedepends() and use it directly.
