@je-vv the webpack dependency is specified in upstream's package.json, so I can't change that.

The Electron download thing is probably because I forgot to change the Electron directory. I've fixed that.

Upstream requires Electron 21.

Also, is this necessary?

  • downloading     url= size=93 MB parts=8
  • downloaded      url= duration=12.432s

Can system electron be used instead? BTW, it's weird it's packaging electron 22 at the end, while it was built with electron 21. Perhaps it's possible to build it with 22... But more importantly is why downloading electron...

Got it @samsapti, yeap current electron is 22, but if required by upstream it's fine.

Can this package be made dependent on a provider of nodejs-webpack, currently nodejs-webpack-cli (full) and nodejs-webpack (just the module I'd guess) are, and then stop downloading and using webpack while building this package? Both mentioned providers are on AUR BTW.

@je-vv I've pinned electron21 as a dependency, because the devs have downgraded it due to an issue. I've adopted the package btw.

@lsf, could you please update the electron used to be electron20, I see no issue with that. Thanks !

Yes, I am on Manjaro, so that explains what's happening. Thanks to lsf and aorth for pointing that out. I'm using the AUR electron16-bin package, and that hasn't yet been updated past 16.0.1.

I'm mildly surprised that the AUR is lagging the Arch community repository. In any case I'll wait a day or two for it to catch up, and if that doesn't happen I'll edit the PKGBUILD.

@smw are you on Manjaro? Seems like they still have electron 15 in their stable repos – 16 is currently still in unstable only over there (

The fixed version was added due to an upstream issue ( – it should still run/build with 16.0.1 (or even 15) though, but you will probably have to edit the PKGBUILD before building yourself.

@smw the latest version of electron is 16.0.4, updated three days ago. Make sure your mirrors are up to date.

2021.12.2-1 fails to build, with

 Warning: cannot resolve "electron>=16.0.4", a dependency of "jitsi-meet-desktop"

...but the most recent available version of electron16-bin is 16.0.1-1. Help?
