Mprom, see the PKGBUILDs: This package downloads the source and builds everything. Signal-desktop-bin takes the prebuilt Debian package and repackages that.

Can somebody smarter than me explain how this package differs from the signal-desktop-bin one? Their dependencies are completely different.

EDIT: It seems like the below error occurred because my internet connection was interrupted. Sorry for the noise!

I get the following error at the end of the build:

The package still does not build for me, because the Gruntfile tries to get information of a git commit, which is not available in the tarball.

This is an upstream build issue and should have been reported:


@scrapWoolKing, what's in /home/flo/.npm/_logs/2018-04-28T14_13_52_758Z-debug.log ? Have you mounted /home as noexec ?

@Jake: cloning it manually and using makepgk -si instead of trizen did not solve the issue for me. In fact, I get the same error:

One cannot (and should never) run makepkg with sudo, so the EACCESS error needs to be solved internally, somehow. I'd appreciate if you'd have another look at it.

Thanks and tell me if you need more details about my system.

@KeeperB5: This is a problem with your locale setup, make sure your $LANG is actually uncommented and generated.

@ohmysql: According to line 87: make: g++: Command not found you have no C++ compiler installed. Please read the older comments, this error was already posted by andifferous.

KeeperB5 commented on 2018-04-26 08:57

I am having trouble installing this package.

Jake commented on 2018-04-23 20:27

scrapWoolKing: I have to ask the usual question: Does it build with standard makepkg? Electron builder fails to package the app with 7zip, looks like an permission error. Maybe try to build on another filesystem. Also make sure you have at least 1400 MB free space, that could also cause problems in the packing stage.

Build fails on my machine for a different reason I could not find in the comments. I posted the whole output of trizen here:

The most specific error line says: "Error: Cannot spawn /tmp/trizen-flo/signal/src/signal-git-repo/node_modules/7zip-bin-linux/x64/7za: Error: spawn EACCES".

Unfortunately, I don't know much about the build process and tools, so I hope it's not a silly mistake by myself (or overlooked related comments). Thanks for your help in advance!

Build is failing for me, getting the same error after running the suggested command:

Run npm config delete prefix or nvm use --delete-prefix v8.2.1 to unset it. Found '/mnt/hdd/home/me/.cache/pacaur/signal/src/signal-git-repo/.nvmrc' with version <8.2.1> nvm is not compatible with the npm config "prefix" option: currently set to "/mnt/hdd/home/me/.nvm/versions/node/v8.2.1
