FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (read before flagging or commenting!)

  • What is the difference between this package and the one in the community repo?

This is the official binary distribution from Microsoft. The one in the community repo is an unofficial build made from source. Beyond the license difference and branding, there are some proprietary features not available in the open source version.

  • There is a new version out, why is the package not updated?

Please check this page before flagging as out-of-date. If there is no new version on that page, it's not yet released. A tag on Github is NOT a release! If you can see the new version on the updates page but the AUR package is still not updated, flag it and give it time. It's usually done within a day or two.

  • I'm using an AUR helper (yay, yaourt etc.) and I can't install it. Why?

Sometimes AUR helpers do weird things. Download the tarball and install it manually with makepkg -si. If that works, report the problem to your AUR helper's upstream, not here.

  • When I install this package xdg-open uses vscode, not my file manager! How do I fix this?

Install shared-mime-info-gnome. Also see this reddit thread.

  • Why is $X a dependency? I don't like it.

Just because $X is not required to open the app, doesn't mean there is nothing that depends on it. Always search the comment history on AUR to see if that dependency has been previously discussed before writing your own comment. Still nothing? Then use namcap to make sure it's really not needed. If namcap doesn't complain, please leave a comment here and I'll investigate.

  • Something is broken with the app, where do I report it?

The problem might be a packaging issue (wrong paths, dependencies, icons), so please write a comment here first. If you don't get a reply, or if someone says it's an upstream issue, you can report it on Github.

  • I have a problem with this package, can I email you?

No, you won't get a reply. Please stop doing this. Leave a comment here instead and be patient.

pacman 6.0.2-9 started building debug packages by default and whatever AUR helper you are using seems to be installing these debug packages unconditionally. Add !debug to the OPTIONS array in /etc/makepkg.conf to fix it.

I've exactly the same slack-desktop-debug conflict as ViToni!

For me this package conflicts with slack-desktop-debug. As it also conflicts with zulip-desktop-bin (mentioned below) I'd tend to agree the actual reason could be the common dependency as all three are electron based apps (as was already mentioned). Wondering if this is an issue of the package itself or how AUR packages are built in general.

This makes me think it's related to the electron shipped with all those applications

saabzero commented on 2024-06-11 10:47 (UTC)

Another conflict is with slack (slack-desktop-debug) with the same directories

bobi commented on 2024-06-11 08:30 (UTC)

It also conflicts with (at least) both teams-for-linux and teams-for-linux-bin, for the exact same directories.

j.r commented on 2024-06-11 07:53 (UTC)

This package somehow conflicts with zulip-desktop-bin:

wl-clipboard work on this package 1.89.0 version. However, subsequent updates seem to break this feature. I'm currently at 1.89.1,Currently affected by this feature.
