@sourcesmith: Bugs like this are usually not caused by the AUR packaging process. Please use the upstream bug tracker.

There already seems to be an open issue for this bug:

Okay, refreshing the tab seems to get rid of the message.

@jbbr: Thanks for the explanation, I wasn't aware of the possible compatibility issues.

@xsmile: Thank you for the suggestion. I also thought about that, still I'm not sure if that would be a good idea. A problem I see is, that electron in Arch repos is much more recent then the one packaged with official Rambox binaries. It's not proven to be compatible. This might work fine now, but break in the future. This has been an issue with other electron based AUR packages. It's always possible to use the "rambox" package without "-bin" which is using electron from arch repo.

In my opinion an advantage of this "-bin" package is, that it's as close as possible to the officially distributed binary packages for other distributions. Right now I don't see enough benefit or replacing parts of this with arch binaries, rather then reducing storage requirements.

Please change the PKGBUILD to use system Electron instead of the bundled libraries. This will save over 100MB. Everything apart from resources/app.asar does not need to be packaged and probably all dependencies except 'electron' can be removed. See

Thanks for considering it.

It should be flagged to conflict with rambox, no?

Moved over to rambox from franz, super happy. Install was fast. Thanks for the good work packaging this guys!

I've tried to reinstall several times, but for some reason it worked n the 6th try.

Before the last try, I did sudo pacman -Rs rambox
Between the dependencies listed after this, electron was one of them, curious...

Thank you for your attention.

@Malganis: Can you try reinstalling this package? What is the content of /usr/bin/rambox?

This package does not depend on the electron package and there shouldn't be any references to /usr/bin/electron.

I was unable to reproduce your problem.
