Needs internet connetion during build(). Please make sure that build() does not need internet, by dealing with all download in the source-array and in prepare().

Has anybody built this succesfully in the last two months? I cannot get it to build on a current system with a fresh git clone of this package repo.

Mattermost-desktop stopped working very recently (around a week ago). I cannot figure what caused the issue, downgrading the electron package did not fix it.

It starts but the webpage stay blank and the electron console shows the following error:

index_bundle.js:1084 Uncaught ReferenceError: require is not defined
    at Object.<anonymous> (index_bundle.js:1084)
    at __webpack_require__ (index_bundle.js:20)
    at Object.<anonymous> (index_bundle.js:99)
    at __webpack_require__ (index_bundle.js:20)
    at index_bundle.js:84
    at index_bundle.js:87

index_bundle.js:1084 :

/***/ }),
/* 16 */
/***/ (function(module, exports) {

module.exports = require("url");

/***/ }),

It looks like some node syntax did not get converted correctly.

Edit: Mattermost is calling electron which is now electron5 on ArchLinux. To fix the issue one should simply edit /usr/bin/mattermost-desktop and replace electron by electron4.

/usr/bin/mattermost-desktop :


exec electron4 /usr/lib/mattermost-desktop/app.asar --disable-dev-mode "$@

Which is exactly what the previous comments said, making mine obsolete. :D

Also please use exec electron4 instead of just electron4 in the script so that we don't keep a bash process running for nothing.

mtorromeo commented on 2019-07-03 07:22

This should be updated to depend on electron4 and consequently modify /usr/bin/mattermost-desktop to use the electron4 command.

@ArchangeGabriel Thanks I'll check this out with upstream as well.

Archange commented on 2019-04-30 10:12

Note that electron 5 is in [staging], you should check whether mattermost-desktop works with it (I currently have no mattermost instance, so can’t say).

Package updated. Thanks @mtorromeo for pointing me the fix. I realized the app.asar increased of 60 Mio since the last dot release (4.2.0). I'll investigate with upstream. (I'm working with them. 4.3 is around the corner).

mtorromeo commented on 2019-04-16 07:37

This is the patch that needs to be applied to fix the issue with electron 4:
