The protonmail-bridge package that is being built from source is working again if anyone prefers that :)

Are you interested in a co-maintainer to help you maintaining/updating this package?

I also have some valuable changes that could/should be made to the PKGBUILD to fit the Arch packaging guidelines better :)

Firstly, thanks for maintaining this package. Your work is very appreciated!

Would you mind explaining why you made changes from the official PKGBUILD file? I'm a relative noob trying to learn. Specifically, I'm interested in the changes to the dependencies and the package/prepare functions. Thanks!

Official dependencies: 'libglvnd' 'glibc' 'gcc-libs' 'glib2' 'ttf-dejavu'

AUR version dependencies: 'hicolor-icon-theme' 'libsecret' 'ttf-font'

Official package function:

package() { tar -xzC "$pkgdir" -f data.tar.gz rm -rf "$pkgdir/opt" }

AUR prepare/package functions split:

prepare() { tar xf data.tar.gz }

package() { mv usr/ "${pkgdir}" }

Thanks, that was fast. The ttf-font virtual package is supposed to only be provided by font packages that pass the test for implementing a usable minimum of functionality, so it should be a transparent change. In fact, I've been using the Bridge on my system without DejaVu for some time now and it works as expected.

Regarding upstream Proton using ttf-dejavu in their official PKGBUILD, well, it would hardly be the first time where some upstream dev is not entirely well-versed in packaging stuff for Linux ;)

@Nocifer I've done that because I could build the protonmail-bridge without depending on that, on the other hand is depending on ttf-dejavu, and I cannot test without ttf-dejavu installed an see the result as these packages (firefox intellij-idea-community-edition qt6-webengine) I need are depending on it as well, So, I hope I didn't make any issues by replacing it

Would it be possible to replace the ttf-dejavu dependency with the generic ttf-font?

@ali.molaei: This was on a fresh install of arch. I circumvented the issue by using 'protonmail-bridge-nogui' instead. Good call though to remove the *.lock-file, I should have tried that. Thank you!

@cosmox and @creakParrot Looks like there is another instance running in your system, can you try to kill it, and delete the lock file referenced in the log, and try again?

I am having the same issue as @cosmox
