If you're wondering about the difference between this and rocketchat-client-bin, this builds from the source code.

The details in this URL shows 2.14.2-2, but the latest snapshot, as well as the latest changes commit here, latest-commit, just point to package release 1, not 2, so I guess, the package details don't match what's in latest PKGBUILD, neither what gets downloaded with latest snapshot?

Also, 2.14.2-1 doesn't load the icon on the tray, which I really miss... Should that be flagged upstream, or is it something in the packaging?

Todays update only fixes the Node 11 build problem. This will be be fixed in upsteam starting 2.14.2. I decided to skip 2.14.1 which contains a but that renders rocketchat unusable, and I'll skip the 2.14.2-beta.1 as well since it's a beta and I don't want to heavily edit the PKGBUILD because hyphens are not allowed in pkgver.

Hi notification-receivers,

Waiting for this issue to be resolved before updating to 2.14.1, or 2.14.2, depends if the fix will result in a new version.


Edit: So I could update to 2.14.1 and fix the building issue by upadting natives to 1.1.6, but it's totally not worth it because this release has weird issues with tray icon and closing the application on Linux. It's fixed upstream, but I'd rather wait for 2.14.2 before updating this package. Thanks for reading.

Fixed. Worked yesterday. Not sure what they did there upstream.

Please add this sha512sum instead of the first one and it will work:


je-vv commented on 2018-08-27 22:03

Isn't the sha512sum wrong?

Updated to 2.13.0.
  • Target "dir" patch adjusted
  • Added new patch to make building for seperate arches possible.

I really don't like the way this builds right now. It's a huge "one-click builds everything" giant with 870 npm dependencies.

When I have the time, I'll look into this matter with the goal to just deliver the .asar application and use it with system electron.

Edit: Please note that they have changes the user-dir upstream. This means that your existing configuration which is under ~/.config/Rocket.Chat+ is not used anymore. The new patch is ~/.config/Rocket.Chat (missing +)

@dvatate yes, this is a know issue.

It is solved with glibc-2.28-4, please update your packages, it is on the core repository now and should run fine.

Just to be sure, recompile rocketchat after updating glibc!
