Hey guys,

I created the original fix.

And now I share another way to use whatsapp web on nativefier. No code injection required.

Pressing ctrl+shift+i (on Linux) and the Devtools window will open. Then click on Application -> Service Workers And check the option Bypass for network.

Now press ctrl+r to reload. And ctrl+shift+i to close the Devtools.

Whenever you open your whatsapp the problem will occur, but since the Bypass for network option has already been enabled, you only need to press ctrl+shift+i (open devtools), ctrl+r (reload), ctrl+shift+i (close devtools)

@frealgagu, thanks for your work. This package was in my list as one of required apps to be installed after install Arch. I saw your last update ( document.querySelector("a[href='https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/95414']") ), NICE/GREAT/GOOD!

Another way to do the same in 2 lines: document.querySelector("a[href='https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/95414']") && navigator.serviceWorker.getRegistration().then(r => r.unregister() && document.location.reload());

I cannot run this from dmenu, any advice why?

Thank you so much for your work @frealgagu, this is by far the most efficient client I have used, other clients straight up use 2-3x times more resources. Will this still be maintaintained now that nativefier is unmaintained?-- side request- if you are still working on this please look into notification issue!

Saving images does not work - the "download" button does nothing.

I confirm as written by mijin, there is a permissions problem which can be solved with:


sudo chmod g=rx /opt/whatsapp-nativefier
sudo chmod o=rx /opt/whatsapp-nativefier

I have installed the package several times without error notifications but every time I try to launch the program the system notification appears: unable to find the whatsapp-nativefier program... what could be the problem please?

meijin commented on 2023-09-14 05:11 (UTC)

seems like the /opt/whatsapp-nvrivifier directory is with 0700 instead of 0755 permissions

Some more info: When building with makepkg and running the app directly, it seems to be working, with some warnings

/pkg/whatsapp-nativefier/opt/whatsapp-nativefier/WhatsApp

Only problem after copying to destination probably?
