indeed, that did it. Weird.

Hi xeruf, I can’t replicate that issue here, but from the log you posted, it looks like your package build directory is dirty. Can you try deleting src and any other leftovers from your earlier build and let me know how you go?

Sorry I didn't see your comment earlier, @xeruf. I updated the stretchly package when electron was updated, but overlooked this one. Hopefully all good now.

Oof, why do only AUR packages provide electron...

❯ pacman -Q | grep electron
electron 18.0.1-1
electron12 12.2.3-3
electron13 13.6.9-2
electron15 15.5.1-1
electron8-bin 1:8.5.5-3

@slimb unfortunately the fix mentioned in the PR didn’t resolve the issue, otherwise I wouldn’t have needed to switch in the first place (I actually updated the PKGBUILD after the PR was merged).

The latest release of Stretchly has moved to electron 17, so once Arch moves to 17 I’ll test again and hopefully return to using the system’s electron.

I noticed upstream implemented a workaround to the no text electron issue. Can you revert back to system electron?

slimb commented on 2021-07-20 00:18 (UTC)

The systemd unit was added upstream in examples/stretchly.service

slimb commented on 2021-06-26 19:22 (UTC)

nvm is a shell function and which can only resolve commands

Thanks for adding. Maybe the author was lazy since it works on zsh. You should update the wiki with the better test example.

I'll look into submitting PR upstream - good call, thanks.

Thanks for the feedback, @slimb. The _ensure_local_nvm example you referenced doesn't work as-is, because nvm is a shell function and which can only resolve commands, but I've added a corrected version to prepare() and build() for the benefit of those not building with chroot.

Thanks for the systemd unit, too. I won't add this to the PKGBUILD but you should open a PR on Stretchly's Github and see what they think of it :)

slimb commented on 2021-06-20 17:25 (UTC)

Here's a systemd user unit, which could for example, launch stretchly on startup.

If you add it to the PKGBUILD, it should be placed in /usr/lib/systemd/user/stretchly.service. If it doesn't get added to the PKGBUILD, users wanting to install it manually should place in ~/.config/systemd/user/stretchly.service

Thanks for the PKGBUILD. needs to be sourced in build() function too

Archwiki has an example function _ensure_local_nvm() which could be used
