Just having pass installed with a key set up wasn't enough for me, I had to follow this:

This package is now being built from source. if you want the binary version, use protonmail-bridge-bin package

Hey @RonObvious, I don't think there are problems with PKGBUILD, because of the fact that -bin package's PKGBUILD is almost exactly a copy of the official PKGBUILD, It looks like to be a problem with your system's default keyring/password-manager, ProtonMail-Bridge stores your passwords in gnome-keyring or pass, and if it cannot open them, then it cannot log you back in! but why it cannot open, and why it wants you to initialize it again? I don't know

And BTW, It didn't happen for me yet, that it wants me to re-login, is there anyone else with the same issue?

Had some problems with today's update, but the bridge seems to be running again. My account settings were gone, so I had to add my account again, i.e. enter my name and password (and 2-factor auth code). Then I got an error message telling me

"failed to add user to credentials store: exit status 1: Error: You must run: pass init your-gpg-id before you may use the password store."

(I then switched from protonmail-bridge-bin to protonmail-bridge and had the same problem). I was unsure what was meant by "your-gpg-id" but after running "pass init <my-protonmail-address>" everything worked. The bridge is back up and running. This is not the first time I had to login to protonmail all over again, but the first time I had to run "pass init". I wonder if there's a way to preserve all the settings -- or put another way, if this is a problem with protonmail's software, or with the PKGBUILD (?).

@ali.molaei - the latest revision with the commented out envs worked for me.

I removed the Environment Variables suggested by Wiki for now to check it more. (although it is being built and run with no problem on my machine)

It should definitely work now because actually nothing is changed compared to 1.5.4-1

If you have problems, try a clean build and if the problem persist, let me know, thanks and sorry for problems

I'm having the same problem as Onoketa (et. al.).

As a (hopefully temporary) workaround, the protonmail-bridge-bin package seems to work.

Onoketa commented on 2021-01-02 06:25

same problem after update

ali.molaei commented on 2021-01-02 05:09

I think the problem is solved now

zangoku commented on 2021-01-02 01:34

Same error here
