@DescartesHorse I updated the URL, thanks

I realise it's more semantics, given it's not actually used in your PKGBUILD, but you may want to adjust URL to reflect that the repo's have moved to :)

1.3 Is out.

Just tested your PKGBUILD with it and it installs fine. Can you please update it?

@jbbr great, thanks, will try again soon. Yep, thanks for the clarification about the package difference. I realized that when I tried building the one from source and realized it was different from the other (pre-compiled) electron apps I'd been installing through AUR.

Thanks for reporting @privong. This should be fixed now.

Btw: The difference between this package and "signal" is that this is using the prebuilt binaries from the official Ubuntu Apt repository. The "signal" package builds from source.

The compiled package does not work because the symbolic link created in /usr/bin points to the /tmp directory in which the package was created. That directory is cleared, so the binary no longer exists.

$ ls -l /usr/bin/signal-desktop
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 60 Oct 31 21:42 /usr/bin/signal-desktop -> /tmp/yaourt-tmp-username/aur-signal-desktop-bin/signal-desktop

I think this is a problem with the {pkgdir} variable, but I am not sure...
