@xiota Thank you for your reporting. I add these packages in dependencies.

@h3poteto sure enough, ran pacman -Su node-gyp and build succeeded, thanks for responding!

@eman258 Hmm, node-gyp is included in dependencies: So it should be installed, why was the command not found......

Running into an issue upgrading from 5.0.1-1 to 5.0.2-1 in my Manjaro KDE installation. Any help is appreciated, many thanks to all the people supporting this great project!

Edit: Next day to post this, I was able to install the package.


I'm getting this error. I already have electron 19.1.4 installed, so I don't know why it is trying to download again...
