I made a gist to build the current pre-release (1.0.24) with electron :

BTW this package is broken on multiple machines I tried to install it on, I get a white blank screen.

For those interested the signal-muon-git package now provides a working build of Signal Desktop based on Muon instead of Chromium.

I have the same issue as samouy. But only on one of my two systems. One works nearly perfect, even saves the login, the other does not even render the app. I am a bit confused why this is.

Thanks for maintaining this great package. However, I still experience issues with the recent bug fix of nwjs in the version 0.20.3-1 and signal 0.30.0. The app is not rendered and I just have a blank screen as you describe on GitHub bug report.

You can find the build logs of signal and the debug logs here :

Thank you !

8/3 EDIT : The issue is still here after updating to Signal 0.32.0-1.
12/3 EDIT : The issue is still here after updating to Signal 0.33.0.
16/3 EDIT : The issue is still here, except that there is no window opened at all now. Signal 0.33.0-4 and nwjs nightly (0.21.2)

Thanks onny for providing this, works great for me. Just one small thing that reoccurs each time I start signal: It opens the app twice, once with a login screen and once with a logged in screen showing my contacts/chats etc. Nothing major as I can just close the login screen, but maybe there's a fix for it.
And a little feature request, even though I'm not sure if that's something you can add: A tray icon would be nice, as of by now the window needs to stay opened all the time to be connected.

Thanks again
