The git tag v1.0.80 of raven-reader is currently pointed to the same commit of v1.0.79, which results in source code build failure.

Are gtk2 packages really necessary?

@MithicSpirit You are right. A merge to raven-reader-bin seems ok to me. How about other maintainers?

This package is a misnomer since it utilizes prebuilt binaries rather than building them from source, which requires the -bin suffix according to the AUR Rules of submission:

Packages that use prebuilt deliverables, when the sources are available, must use the -bin suffix. An exception to this is with Java. The AUR should not contain the binary tarball created by makepkg, nor should it contain the filelist.

I have created a PKGBUILD for this raven reader that builds from source, but I cannot upload it currently due to this name already being taken.

EDIT: oh lol I just noticed raven-reader-bin already exists, which is effectively just a dupe of this package since both essentially just extract the appimage and install the files to the correct locations. Maybe this package should just be merged into that one and the maintainers added as co-maintainers (though it would probably be good to talk to @wrenby, the current maintainer of raven-reader-bin first).

The latest version v1.0.60 now crashes on my side.

The latest version since 1.0.61 has started working on my machine.

If your raven-reader crashes like mine, there is one temporary solution.

  • backup the "~/.config/Raven\ Reader/config.json"
  • and then, delete "~/.config/Raven\ Reader/config.json"
  • relaunch raven-reader

This will lose your application preference, but it will make raven-reader work again

@zoorat The new version works fine on my machine. Anyway, I think it's fine to wait until figuring out the problems.

The installed /usr/share/applications/raven-reader.desktop file is linked back to the one in the AUR install path (such as ~/.cache/yay/raven-reader/raven-reader.desktop), and this makes it unable to execute raven-desktop via DE option which needs /usr/share/applications/raven-reader.desktop to launch.
