This is a patched version of protonmail bridge, where the secrets are kept in ~/.config/protonmail/bridge/secrets file (mode 0600) instead of using pass or gnome-keyring. In this way, protonmail bridge can be started as a service without additional user input. Arguably, this is a weaker security arrangement than the default one, so please use at own discretion.

It should be run as a user (i.e. not from root), the service name is protonmail-bridge. So,

systemctl --user enable protonmail-bridge

should in principle work. Do you have protonmail-bridge.service listed if you do

pacman -Ql protonmail-bridge

?

Before you enable and start the service, you need to login once by running the service in an interactive mode:

protonmail-bridge --cli

and then login. See also help while in the interactive mode.

I'm having one problems with this.

Systemd cannot find the unit file associated with this package. I tried both systemctl --user enable and systemctl enable as root.

Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.
