@impankratov

Where in the app can I see the 'beta' label?

There is no label in the app itself. You can use the command from the pinned comment.

it kept trying to update itself

Hmm... interesting. I haven't seen this behaviour for years. Neither can I reproduce it now. Is your whole system up-to-date? Please try to uninstall upwork package, remove your .Upwork directory, run pacman -Syu to upgrade the system and finally install upwork package again.

I don't think that app would just try to update from stable to a beta-version.

Oh, beleive me, that app is full of bugs and it can do much more weird things.

@msheremet sorry for that. Where in the app can I see the 'beta' label? I've used 4.2.153.0 for a few weeks and it kept trying to update itself (surely it kept failing to install *.deb file by itself) thus really preventing me from using it to track time normally.

5.* version doesn't have any notion of "beta" in the "about" popup, plus I don't think that app would just try to update from stable to a beta-version.

That's why I've flagged it.

@impankratov please read the pinned comment carefully. This AUR package follows upstream PROD (Standard) version. If you need BETA you can revive upwork-beta.

I've adjusted PKGBUILD to install the 5.0.1.404 version:

32-bit package has been removed due to the end of i686 support in Archlinux. https://www.archlinux.org/news/the-end-of-i686-support/ Please leave a comment if you still need the 32-bit package.

@msheremet.
I checked and it seems to be using a older version of gcc<5, now I changed it back and is working. Thank you for your help!

@tangqn
Any details from config.log?

tangqn commented on 2017-11-02 11:57

Fixed font rendering issue. Pango workaround is not needed anymore since proper lib is embedded.
