Clicking on URLs in messages doesn't do anything (expected it to open the link in the default web browser). I previously had signal-desktop installed via Flaptak and this worked. I don't see any relevant log messages printed if I start the application from a terminal. Any ideas?

Yes, thank you for the notice @eschwartz :) Bumped to pkgrel=2 now.

Given I have now moved the electron 3 packages to community, and the new version of signal is not yet out, maybe it would be a good idea to bump the pkgrel anyway... ;)

@Jake thank You. After rebuilding its working again.

Signal 1.18 is still on electron 2.0.8, that is actually the problem if you are on testing. Then sqlchipher has the electron-v2.0 bindings and your system electron can't find a folder with electron-v3.0... Only 1.19 will be on electron 3.0.9, but that is not released so far. I have changed the dependency to electron2 now. I am not bumping the pkgrel for now, because it is not relevant for everyone that is not on testing and 1.19 is coming soon, so please pull/rebuild manually if you need it.

@buzo I'm already a user of the testing repo, the electron was updated to 3.0 couple of days ago.

Upstream switched to Electron v3, but the Community repository is still on v2.0.12. I think you should wait for a new Electron in Community, or use Electron from Community-Testing, or use signal-desktop-bin.

No longer works for me. I'm getting this on start:

Already tried to rebuild Signal. But nothing.

@crypdick It seems you're a couple versions behind. Can you make sure you're updated to the latest 1.18.0?

crypdick commented on 2018-11-17 00:56

I can't send messages anymore from Signal Desktop. I get an error: "This version of Signal Desktop has expired. Please upgrade to the latest version to continue messaging."

I have v1.15.4 installed.
