IMPORTANT: This package always installs the latest insider build (see pkgver() function), so if you want daily updates, just run "makepkg -si" everyday and it will update. I won't be updating pkgver every single day.

Thank you, the new desktop file works fine with gnome!

Fixed, sorry about that.

Hi, the last version ( fails to install because the visual-studio-code-insiders.desktop file does not pass the validity check.

There is a typo in the PKGBUILD in the x86_64 checksum for this file :

diff --git a/PKGBUILD b/PKGBUILD
index 648fd29..4e7abce 100644

Could you fix it please ?

OK, should be fixed now.

Yes, I did. And it didn't work. Until now only my version with spaces around the hyphen worked.

This is what xprop shows for vscode:

WM_CLASS(STRING) = "code - insiders", "Code - Insiders"

dcelasun commented on 2018-01-18 11:30

I know it doesn't match but "code - insiders" is not a valid value for StartupWMCLass. Did you test the version I pushed?

hensur commented on 2018-01-18 11:22

Hm, it still doesn't match... Here is my working file:

Should be fixed.

Hi, thanks for the quick fix. I just upgraded my system again, and I noticed that it happened again (before I had edited the file manually). I compared the new desktop file to my edit and noticed that the spaces around the hyphen were missing. They seem to be important, could you add them? StartupWMClass=code[space]-[space]insiders
