If you get the error ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check! or curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404, it might be that upstream has changed/removed a released package. They have a habit of doing that from time to time. Leave me a comment and I'll update the sum (or version).

New: The PKGBUILD will build with system electron if you set env ELECTRON=electron while building. Please try this out and provide feedback.

Edit: Thanks NicoHood for the PKGBUILD contributions.

@rocka, I used your idea, but without patching the Typora code. My entrypoint is a JavaScript file with electron in the hash-bang, that just immediately removes the extra arg and runs the normal code. It seems to work.

Let me know if there are any other issues with the new system electron package.

Finally I figured out how to keep the featrue "On Launch - Restore last closed files and folders" functionality with system electron. Just patch the .js files.

When typora is launched with bundled electron, it's process.argv equals to ["/usr/share/typora/Typora", "/path/to/file"]. But if it was launched with system electron, it changes to ["/usr/lib/electron/electron", "/path/to/typora", "/path/to/file"], so it would just restore typora folder every times.

Let me show the PKGBUILD and patch:

pkgdesc="Typora will give you a seamless experience as both a reader and a writer."
license=('custom:"Copyright (c) 2015 Abner Lee All Rights Reserved."')
depends=('gconf' 'libxss' 'electron')
optdepends=('noto-fonts-emoji: Or some other emoji font to see emojis')

    mkdir -p "$_src"

That makes sense, I was suggesting it because I noticed a regression/change when keeping the electron dependency: the preference "On Launch - Restore last closed files and folders" is not working anymore, and it always opens in the system Typora folder /usr/share/typora/. This was working before.

duckbrain commented on 2018-08-21 23:20

I prefer having the electron dependency, unless it causes a problem. It makes the package much smaller (44038772 to 8509788 bytes) and prevents having these types of issues in the future.

arch440 commented on 2018-08-17 09:10

Today glibc was updated to 2.28-4, so I guess we can remove the electron dependency now?

duckbrain commented on 2018-08-13 17:20

Sorry, I made the fix @rocka suggested, but I forgot to push it (to the correct remote). I can't get into my machine with the key right now, (NetworkManager keeps stopping sshd) but I'll push it when I can.

In the meantime. If you replace /usr/bin/typora with @rocka's script, it should work.

@Peven, good to know that this is a glibc issue. I'm liking the removing the packaged electron to trim down package size anyway.

Peven commented on 2018-08-13 16:05

The segmentation fault (core dumped) typora can be solved by upgrading glibc to 2.28-4 in testing Repo

rocka commented on 2018-08-13 08:26

@duckbrain That was a mistake, sorry for that ... Maybe we should write as below:

exec /usr/bin/electron /usr/share/typora/resources/app $@

the directory /usr/share/typora/resources/app should be where typora's package.json located, that's depends on where we installed it ...

bilabila commented on 2018-08-11 14:03

a way to open with local electron

cd /usr/share/typora/resources/app
electron .

cabbage commented on 2018-08-11 03:24

I also have the segmentation fault after the lastest Syu update. But everyone, please DO NOT downgrade your glibc. It's really really a bad idea to mess with glibc, your whole system could break down. Just wait for fixes from upstream.
