@LiptonTea I'm sorry but I'm afraid that I cannot do that as I have to follow the major Electron version of Heroic to avoid incompatibilities, as of now we have the problem of the upstream electron package symlinking from /usr/bin/electron to /usr/bin/electron18 (electron19 in community-testing) but not from /usr/lib/electron to /usr/lib/electron18. Though, I'll notify the maintainers through a ticket ( to at least have the issue sorted. In the meantime I'd recommend to install electron18.

Tying the folder path to a specific electron version is bad practice, the folder name should always be simply "electron", and the .txt file inside the directory gives the version number. Please do not tie the path to a specific electron version, this will make less savy users to try and uninstall their electron build for a specific version. Please return the build path to simply electron, thank you so much for maintaining this package you are a hero :) !

I have the opposite problem of @Yamashiro because of that.

I get an error when attempting to build this:

==> Starting build()...
sed: can't read /usr/lib/electron/version: No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

I'm assuming it should look for /usr/lib/electron18/version instead?

[4/4] Building fresh packages... info This package requires node-gyp, which is not currently installed. Yarn will attempt to automatically install it. If this fails, you can run "yarn global add node-gyp" to manually install it.

Good catch!
