@atomicblimp We are at 1.6.7 now :)

Can a maintainer update this to the 1.6.7?

@GrzegorzKozub, thank you for your PKGBUILD. Everything works well after adding those options. I've incorporated these options into the PKGBUILD and updated it to version 1.5.11. I have also added you as a co-maintainer.

Can you add me as co-maintainer, rainbus?

I was able to work around this bug while also updating to 1.5.11. Here's the PKBUILD. Please update :)

I've recently disowned the obsidian-bin package.If you're interested in adopting this package, please feel free to do so

Hello AronYoung! I find Obsidian offer an appimage to aarch64 platform, can you add that to PKGBUILD? Thanks.

Hi. I agree with @nikelebron. It would be great to add the ability to use theobsidian-flags.conf flag.

@stickyburn, You can run it on wayland with few flags.

I added them to my .bashrc for easier access as an alias.

alias obsidian='nohup obsidian --enable-ozone --ozone-platform=wayland &'

Also you may add them to your /usr/share/applications/obsidian.desktop so they are applied when you launch obsidian from your start menu.

The best way to do it is to make /sbin/obsidian a bit smarter in a way many applications based on electron (e.g. vscode, youtube-music) already did:



# Allow users to override command-line options
if [[ -f $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/obsidian-flags.conf ]]; then
   OBSIDIAN_USER_FLAGS="$(sed 's/#.*//' $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/obsidian-flags.conf | tr '\n' ' ')"

# Launch
exec /bin/electron /usr/lib/obsidian/app.asar "$@" $OBSIDIAN_USER_FLAGS

I already asked archlinux devs to add this to obsidian package here, but it would be great if aur/obsidian-bin will be updated in a similar way too.

Hello! How can I start obsidian with wayland?
