@ITwrx This package intends to make ubports installer able to run without root.

So before you run this tool, you need to install android-udev and reboot entire system first, to make udev rule working.

android-udev package inludes tons of devices and vendors, which will make you able to run adb without root permission.

You can try to stop adb.service and try to run adb devices from terminal, to check if your device is working.

Hello my AUR-friend. I've been playing around wit the ubports-installer and ended up creating a -git package for it.

Turns out you don't need any root permissions since we have android-udev and you can use the system electron to run the application without any problems.

Since your package isn't suffixed with -bin, it'd be nice if you could build things from source (as recommended). Another advantage of this would be, that you can drop the gconf dependency as well as the entire foreign electron. The package itself will end up around 40MiB in size.

@Stunts `android-tools' just added.

android-tools should also be on the depends array.

Missing dependency to gconf

There might be some issue when running ubports installer. I'll try to compile from source.

Update this package afterwards .

Depau, when anyone maintains a package building from source, this package should go to -bin. Are you willing to maintain source version using this package name?

Why extract the debian package when you can build it from source?
