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

Hi, for the latest version gyp throws an exception and the build fails:

Latest version v2.12.15 finally resolved the annoying issue that I noticed 4 months ago after updating to Gnome 44.1: it's now possible to close Joplin in maximised state and, when relaunched, it's visible and maximised.

Hi @jeremyjjbrown, that's quite unfortunate situation you are in. There's nothing wrong in the versions: you probably have installed "go-yq", which has the exact same executable "/usr/bin/yq" as "yq" so they can't co-exist. I'd first check if you really need "go-yq". If you do, please note that "yq" it's a build dependency for Joplin, so you could uninstall "go-yq", install "yq", build Joplin, uninstall "yq", install "go-yq".

I can't install because the package wants an old version of jq (3.2.2). 3.4 is installed

Since the update I am getting the error splitCommandString is not a function when trying to edit, search and sync in the CLI version.

I posted an issue on github but it appears to be working on their end.

The current CLI version is actually 2.11.1 and not 2.11.11, but I'll have to take their word for it because when I try to run joplin version I get

I was able to build the released version, 2.11.11 with the PKGBUILD from by changing: pkgver=2.11.11, then:

$ updpkgsums
$ makepkg --install

tomacrisan commented on 2023-05-31 21:48 (UTC)

I am having problems building the package. Here is the error I am receiving:

error Couldn't find package "@joplin/utils@~2.11" required by "./package.tgz" on the "npm" registry.
info Visit for documentation about this command.
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package_joplin().

Any ideas?

I've tried version 2.10.18-1 and the GUI didn't show up. I needed to close it and reopen it few times for it to show. I've rolled it back to the previous version since I don't have time to investigate (might be related to the system upgrade I did at the same time). When doing that, it complained that the config files are newer. I then removed ~/.config/Joplin and ~/.config/joplin-desktop to start fresh (beware that this will delete all your notes and plugins, which is not an issue if you sync them on the cloud). Update: it's doing it also with the previous version. There are quite a few issues with latest gnome and app in fullscreen mode. It seems that if I don't use the app in fullscreen then it opens up fine.
