Thank you so much for keeping this build updated.

I got a minor build issue. Its probably an upstream issue, but since people look here first, I'll post my workaround.

The error:

$ yay -Scc; yay -S joplin-desktop
➤ YN0009: │ @joplin/app-clipper@workspace:packages/app-clipper couldn't be built successfully (exit code 1, logs can be found here: /tmp/xfs-81117b5e/build.log)

$ cat /tmp/xfs-81117b5e/build.log
Error: Cannot find module 'eslint-loader'

The Fix:

$ cd ~/.cache/yay/joplin/src/joplin-2.7.15/packages/app-clipper/
$ npm install --save-dev eslint-loader

$ cd ~/.cache/yay/joplin/
$ makepkg
$ sudo pacman -U joplin-desktop-2.7.15-4-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

Hello everyone,

There was been several difficulties upgrading the Joplin due to major changes in the build system upstream.

I have finnally got version 2.6.10 working with pacthes, but remenber:

  • You may need to remove your src/ folder before using this version

  • The patches are still not perfect, you must say yes to a prompt

I will continue working on this later today, but its usable and stable, please remenber you can always report issues on the github repository.

Regards, Alfredo Palhares

Hello everyone,

I will be renaming the packages to its final form.

  • joplin will contain the CLI application
  • joplin-desktop will contain the Desktop version

Also, please for problems with the package, please open an issue on the Github repo, its really hard to provide support on the comments section, you can also email me.

If you have problems with the check() function, just run makepkg with the --nocheck flag.

Thank you for your patience. Regards, Alfredo Palhares

The python2 dependency which is a problem with node-gyp can be avoided. I'm not sure how to correct this via PKGBUILD though. Using nvm to install/use lts/dubnium (nodejs 10), joplin-desktop then builds without error and without python2.

mixin commented on 2022-10-24 20:00 (UTC)

Hi, please update PKGBUILD to use python since python2 has been recently removed from repository. After that, the build currently fails because of issue After applying to src/joplin-2.8.8/packages/server/node_modules/nan I've been able to build it.

This version is not out of date. Last release is v2.8.8

joaolvcm commented on 2022-10-10 09:09 (UTC)

The seems to have a typo, it should be

node main.js "${@}"

without this change i can't create notes with multiple spaces, like jupiter mknote "a long text"

This error is occuring:

$ joplin
  throw new Error(error);

Something went wrong installing the "sharp" module cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

- Remove the "node_modules/sharp" directory then run
  "npm install --ignore-scripts=false --verbose" and look for errors
- Consult the installation documentation at

Node.js v18.10.0

Installing libvips fixes the error

Does this still need python2? And if so, which part of the build process? This package is already gone from the main Arch Linux repos.

[EDIT] It seems that some packages need to be manually installed beforehand, like yq. (Or perhaps this a build tool problem; I'm using pacaur.)

[OLD] I get:.../.cache/pacaur/joplin/PKGBUILD: line 66: yq: command not found

I guess this is some sort of python package, which is not on AUR? How can this be solved, is this an "install dependency" only?

The icon for joplin is hardcoded and cannot be themed. Please change the joplin.desktop file's icon line from

I'm not sure if this is a required or optional dependency for joplin-cli.
