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

for some reason this segfaults when i try to run it. I've also tried rocketchat-client-bin and it does the same. Any ideas on why this could be?

Did a small update.

  • snap and AppImage packages are not build anymore.
  • The rocketchat-desktop.desktop file is not properly placed.

I also though about using the systems electron instead of providing it's own. This would save more than 100 MiB in installed size!

Let me know what you think.

I updated the package to 2.12.1, which includes only one fix:

Also, I removed the pinned glibc version, because 2.28-4 (in testing) is working and downgrading it is highly discouraged.

The new build process only builds the required architecture, not both as before, and skips the github publishing process which is (always) inevitably failing.

@sum01 Since I'm stuck with this thing, guess I'll give it a try.

Anyone is welcome to adopt this package, as I'm tired of tring to fix the build issues. I don't even use Rocketchat anymore :)

@sum01 You want to restore dependency to "glibc" without version requirement?

sum01 commented on 2018-08-09 15:55

@xteixeira I'm not entirely sure how to do that, and I don't have time at the moment to figure it out.

If someone is interested in (co)maintaining then I'm open to help.

@sum01 as per I commented on you can try to build this package using electron from arch's repos if you wish to, as it appears to works even on glibc 2.28

Well, my work around so far is using the rocketchat web interface

Until the issue is resolved, you have the option to use RocketChat with flatpak.

There is some information on Reddit:
