@scan, muchas gracias for the feedback. It would be very helpful if you could also paste the contents of the file 'gpg_keys' (it is downloaded into the build dir) which would allow me to replay your situation on my machine.

@mrxx: yes

@scan: do you still get this error with v1.0.41 ?

-> Verifying developer signature... -> No valid developer signature found

Okay, thanks. I do like the gpg checking. Thanks for adding that.

cb474: Yes, that's currently the only difference (apart from a slightly different PKGBUILD). Until a month ago the package 'signal' was poorly maintained (which is not the case anymore with the new maintainer), therefore I created 'signal-desktop' as that name seemed more appropriate to me anyway. Recently I added GPG signature checking.

What's the difference between this version of Signal Desktop and the one in AUR just named "signal"? Just that this one checks the gpg keys?

jevv, thanks for the info. Signal-Desktop handles all its npm dependencies by using Yarn, eliminating the need for separate packages.

I've just successfully compiled 1.1.0-beta.3.

Just in case, next release, based on beta.3, after 1.0.40, introduces proxy environment variables support, :), but also introduces 2 new dependencies:



  • "proxy-agent": "^2.1.0",
  • "proxy-from-env": "^1.0.0",

With a quick search on AUR, it seems there are no AUR packages for those deps. So probably they will have to be created prior to introcuding the new version (this should apply to the beta AUR package as well)...

mrxx: That's *awesome*! Thank you! I think now we should bring signal-desktop back into signal with these changes so that there's only one package to deal with :) I'm sure dbirks would be happy to do that too!
