@hobbypunk I fixed the double icon by changing the StartupWMClass from jetbrains-webstorm to jetbrains-webstormh. I changed this a week ago (with PhpStorm too) and I have not experienced this issue again.

Dear hobbypunk,
If you want to change anything in the desktop file, copy it to ~/.local/share/applications and change it to your needs.

The extra icons are a known problem. I have already explained that in the phpstorm package. Briefly: The desktop file is generated by jetbrains and though they have to change the behavior of webstorm. Open issue here:

Hey, i'm not sure why, but webstorm is not grouping in Gnomes Dock, looks like the StartUpWMClass is not correct, but i don't found a solution...
the realy strange thing is, this:
Webstorm has always an extra icon,
pycharm and android studio have an extra icon while loading
and intellij and clion don't have an extra icon :-/

I'm testing every commit for upgrading issues. So let's see if anybody else has this issue. I'll have a deeper look at it then.

Removing /usr/bin/webstorm allows the installation to proceed so it would seem that's the only conflict (at least in my case.)

I can reinstall the old version if you really need that output though.

Hi ievans3024,
what is the output of
> pacman -Qo /usr/bin/webstorm

When attempting to upgrade from 10.0.4-3 to 11.0.0-2, installation fails due to conflicting files:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
webstorm: /usr/bin/webstorm exists in filesystem

Perhaps try ln -s -f or prepare the symlink in a temp dir and use install instead?

Fixed. thanks.

This package has only "java-runtime" (JRE) as dependency - but WebStorm requires "java-environment" (JDK).

If installed on a fresh arch starting webstorm fails.

Version 10.0.3 is out. A package update would be welcomed. In the meanwhile, for those who want to build it, here's the PKGBUILD:
