Just commenting to let you know I got an update prompt and it updated my Insomnia and now it's working. No more blank screen. :) Many thanks to the maintainers.

Hello everyone, @gschier and I, we fixed the issue with the blank screen.

Please tell us if you still have the problem.

@welkie If you use a DE like gnome you can find a .desktop file for insomnia and execute it using the workaround

Script reference:

$ pacman -S libcurl-compat
$ cd /usr/share/applications
$ LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/ `grep '^Exec' insomnia.desktop | tail -1 | sed 's/^Exec=//' | sed 's/%.//' | sed 's/^"//g' | sed 's/" *$//g'` &

Just commenting to confirm I'm also having the issue with the blank white screen when starting Insomnia.

When I try to workaround in ethereal's comment, I'm able to install the library, but when I try to start Insomnia, I get "bash: insomnia: command not found".

It looks like Gitkraken had a similar issue. Here is the temporary workaround they provided:

$ pacman -S libcurl-compat
$ LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/ insomnia

Can you try that for now while I work on a better solution?

Blank page after update to 5.0.0

The server returns 403 Forbidden on trying to download Maybe it requires User-Agent header? Anyway, I had to download it with browser and put to


(I am using yaourt, this is just a dir where makepkg runs)

and replace URL in source variable of PKGBUILD with real file name. Checksum matched.

@planton. Sorry for the delay. I have updated it with your fix. Thanks!

Here is some error.

PKGBUILD script create symbolic link
`ln -s /opt/Insomnia/Insomnia ${pkgdir}/usr/bin/insomnia`

but /opt/Insomnia/Insomnia does not exists, probably it should be
`ln -s /opt/Insomnia/insomnia ${pkgdir}/usr/bin/insomnia`
