Makes sense. I don't actively use this package myself lately though. I'll disown it.

@vasya: Why, are you experiencing the same issue? Generally it seems clear that we need to either find the patch file or remove the command to apply the patch from the build script. However, I don't yet know what purpose this patch is intended to serve. And I haven't tried to investigate, because this seems like something which the package maintainer would already be familiar with. Building this is not really a high priority for me. I just wanted to report the error.

@doctorcolossus, do you know how to fix this?

Stephen304, I've pushed a new version. Can you check if it works for you?

It seems the script in /usr/bin doesn't work to launch jitsi:

/usr/bin/jitsi-meet-electron: line 2: /usr/bin/jitsi-meet.bin: No such file or directory

I'm able to launch by directly calling /usr/share/jitsi-meet-electron/jitsi-meet.bin or /usr/share/jitsi-meet-electron/jitsi-meet

For now I've changed my /usr/bin/jitsi-meet-electron to read

/usr/share/jitsi-meet-electron/jitsi-meet.bin --no-sandbox "$@"

Thanks a lot @vasya

Answered in the other package. Indeed, this package uses the official npm version of electron, while the other package uses system ArchLinux electron. Using system version of electron is generally preferred, I've added this info to my PKGBUILD:

what's the main difference with jitsi-meet-desktop? I'm not sure if jitsi-meet-desktop uses system electron and jitsi-meet-electron downloads Jitsi's own electron (saying because the dependencies), but I can't really tell...

Added a .desktop file in last commit
