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

Thank you, @taken. Confirming that the following works:

yay -S --rebuild joplin-desktop

here is the result of pacman -Ql joplin-desktop (I hope! because I haven't used pastebin before)!

@lucianf I had the same error when upgrading to 1.5.14-1. The error was resolved following a rebuild of the package:

yay -S --rebuild joplin-desktop

@lucianf Can you paste the pacman -Ql joplin-desktop, do a pastebin please

man I don't know what is happening, but after all these changes to this package, I have removed what I had installed on my system, then did a yay -S joplin-desktop and I still get this error when I try to run it:

$ joplin-desktop 
/usr/bin/joplin-desktop: line 12: ./@joplinapp-desktop: No such file or directory

Only the appimage works for me and that take quite a bit to load.

@masterkorp From my own experience with other packages, trying to compile different packages with different dependencies in a single pkgbuild brings to only more problems. Anyway, cli version is shipped by joplin authors with different version numbers, so having two different pkgbuild is really the only solution.

masterkorp commented on 2020-12-30 12:28

@mprom, this is a limitation of the makepkg, you cant just built one packaege,

Edit the pkgname array, and remove the joplin-desktop that will work.

I am trying to do a workaround without having to create 2 separate packages. But I guess making a repository its the only response.

@mprom Unfortunately, if you use this pkgbuild you have to "compile" both cli and desktop versions, and yes, this is very annoying for the ones who just want the cli version.

I'm splitting the pkgbuild in order to "fix" this behavior, and I will send my results to the maintainer.

Why does this package compile using Electron? Electron is a framework for developing GUI applications, and this is the CLI version.

I have updated the package, to 1.5.12 The packages are now much smaller, I have also disabled the checks since I can't reproduce the error in any way. Enable them by uncommenting the line if you want. Please if you have any problems report to
