Recently the binary has been complaining about chrome-sandbox not being setuid. I've fixed this by including the following in package():

chmod u+s $pkgdir/opt/Session/chrome-sandbox

Thanks, I forgot about this lol. I will get this updated now (assuming my ISP didn't block SSH again...)

The ln line in the .install file just needs to be changed from

ln -sf /opt/Session/session-messenger-desktop /usr/bin/session-messenger-desktop


ln -sf /opt/Session/session-desktop /usr/bin/session-messenger-desktop

(users can run this post-install to temporarily fix the link).

Though I wonder if this belongs in a .install at all and the link should not instead be created in the package() section of the PKGBUILD.

Users are expected to use the desktop file, but I can do that when I have access to my computer. Thanks.

Apparently /usr/bin/session-messenger-desktop was something i made myself some time ago, but yeah it's now /opt/Session/session-desktop. This package should make a symlink, like postinst in .deb does tbh.

Did the filename change?

nekgem2 commented on 2022-07-18 19:42 (UTC)

% ls -lA /usr/bin/session-messenger-desktop
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 38 2022-07-18 22:35 /usr/bin/session-messenger-desktop -> /opt/Session/session-messenger-desktop
% ls -lA /opt/Session/session-messenger-desktop
ls: cannot access '/opt/Session/session-messenger-desktop': No such file or directory

The auto-update script has been fixed after dealing with some SSH stuff. This will now be automatically updated again

Please note that this package does not stay up to date with pre-releases and ONLY will be updated to be up-to-date with the latest regular release. So this will not update to 1.8.0 yet.

Hi, the installation works just fine except for an issue in the .install script, which generates a broken sym-link.

"ln -sf /opt/Session/session-messenger-desktop /usr/bin/session-messenger-desktop"

The file "/opt/Session/session-messenger-desktop" is not generated, the executable is called "session-desktop" instead.

Replacing "session-messenger-desktop" with "session-desktop" in the first instance was enough to make it work for me.

Thank you for your effort!
