hakayova and grimfrenzy: I managed to solve the issue of "no account found" by providing the correct PASSWORD_STORE_DIR to the systemd service.

In my case I provided: Environment="PASSWORD_STORE_DIR=/home/mclancy/.local/share/pass"

Hope this helps!

Minimal fork of

Compiled with 'nogui' option

Included is a user systemd service. Try: systemctl status --user bridge.service

  1. You can login and register accounts using the interactive cli: protonmail-bridge --cli
  2. Once you have everything configured and automated. You can enable and use bridge.service to run bridge in background.

The following is an alternative way to run the bridge in interactive cli mode encapsulated within a named screen session. Can be added to bridge.service

ExecStart=/usr/bin/screen -Dm -S bridgedaemon sh -c "sleep 5; protonmail-bridge -c"
ExecStop=/usr/bin/screen -X -S bridgedaemon quit

missing 'git' on makedepends.

org.freedesktop.secrets should be added as an optional dependency as ProtonMail Bridge now supports any keyring that supports the Freedesktop secrets api.

I am seeing the following warning in my logs:

level=warning msg="Failed to add test credentials to keychain" error="Cannot create an item in a l ocked collection" helper="*secretservice.Secretservice"

It seems the systemd service is starting too early. I have GNOME configured for auto-login but still need to unlock the keychain on startup. Is it possible to modify the provided unit in a way that it only starts after the keychain is successfully unlocked?

"sudo rm -rf go/" did not help. However, using community/go, as you suggested, did help. I had core/gcc-go, and with that it didn't build.

I am able to build this on a clean chroot. Please try doing that if all else fails.

As for why you are seeing that build error - perhaps try cleaning your build directory or take a look at your go installation. I use community/go

It doesn't build for me:

go/pkg/mod/ fatal error: textflag.h: No such file or directory
    7 | #include "textflag.h"
      |          ^~~~~~~~~~~~
compilation terminated.

Works with PinePhone after adding 'aarch64' as supported architecture and adding make and pkgconf as makedepends

Why is it so that protonmail-bridge --cli cannot be executed if the service runs? @Spixmaster: Because the service runs an instance of protonmail-bridge and the program prevents multiple instances. Would be nice it returned an error message.

I got annoyed with bridge committing to my pass repo so I created a repo specifically for bridge by adding Environment="PASSWORD_STORE_DIR=/a/different/dir" to the unit file.
