Previous riot-web users: the package you now want is riot-desktop, which provides the electron files and things like that, while depending on riot-web package for providing the actual app content. The config file is under `/etc/riot/config.json`, the default one is configuration but you can obviously edit it to suit your needs.

Previous vector-web users: the webapp is now under `/usr/lib/riot/webapp` instead of `/usr/share/webapps/riot/`. Either symlink the old location to the new one or, better, fix your web server configuration. Similarly, the config file is now under `/etc/riot/config.json` instead of `/etc/webapps/riot/config.json`. None is provided by default, and you should move your old one. The sample one `config.sample.json` is provided under `/usr/lib/riot/webapp/config.sample.json`.

Please add libappindicator-gtk3 as a dependency. As otherwise it is not possible to interact with the riot tray icon.

@eang: Yes, exactly the same problem (Plasma too). You can quit the app with Crtl+Q. I’ve reported that upstream at Don’t hesitate to join there!

I’ll push a new version soon with the corrected path for the webapp and config file.

After upgrading to 0.9.7 riot keeps staying in the foreground when I close the window. There is also an icon in the systray which does nothing and is always visible. Anyone else has the same problems? (I'm running Plasma as desktop)

I was noticed of I’ll have to test wether we could make the electron package work with a symlink of the webapp directory instead, but if that works maybe we should revert the webapp packaging to it’s former location.

I’m not sure about the config file location though, any opinion?

@storrgie: If you know about any package doing so, please report them to aur-general. This is a really wrong practice.

storrgie commented on 2017-02-07 21:58

I'm a bit confused, are you packaging differently when it comes to the key. Most packages when confronted with makepkg or a helper that is running makepkg will attempt to go and pull the key automatically. You are specifically choosing to ensure we do it out of band?

@liamdawe as @vith said, you should get the key by yourself, you can do it using:
`$ gpg --recv-keys <key-id>` that will add the pub key of developer to your user keyring.

vith commented on 2017-02-05 16:10

@liamdawe That is expected. The key is not provided by the default arch keyring so you must acquire it yourself. This is so you have the opportunity to verify it before trusting it.
