Until this app get a new working .desktop, I'm using /bin/electron24 /usr/lib/obsidian/app.asar

Kudos @jsimon0.

Hi @tianruiwei,

Any plans on adding support for aarch64 yet? Running into the same issue as @jsimon0. I expected more users will have this issue, it would be a benefit if aarch64 support could be added.

Hi @jsimon0,

I'm not planning to add support to aarch64 as aarch64 isn't officially supported by archlinux. Thanks for your contribution, and maybe interested users could get some help from the template you provided.

@tianruiwei I have an update to this to include aarch64. Can you add me as co-maintainer? Alternatively:

EDIT: I posted this last night but here is a further updated PKGBUILD for 1.0.0

@leongr That command works nicely on Plasma with this very package. Thanks so much.

@ph14nix the difference consist in the app's window frame. This packages uses the same window style as your Desktop Environment, so the typical minimize, maximize, etc. buttons will look the same as all the other DE's apps.

@ucelote Running this command seems to fix it for me: find ~/.config/obsidian/ -type f -name 'obsidian-*.asar' | xargs --no-run-if-empty -I{} sh -c 'asar extract "{}" /tmp/obsidian.asar.extracted && sed -i "s/frame: false/frame: true/" /tmp/obsidian.asar.extracted/main.js && asar pack /tmp/obsidian.asar.extracted/ "{}"'

Not working with last update v0.13.14 here in KDE/Manjaro

ph14nix commented on 2021-12-29 21:32 (UTC)

What the difference between this package and obsidian?
