As I've mentioned in this comment it's time to deprecated this package then.

Now people can use and just change the settings to use the dark theme.

Thank you for the feedback.

I've just published a new version using the image you've put the link. The only change I made was to remove the white border, adding transparency in its place.

About the icon: I'm pretty sure the StartupWMClass fix actually also fixed the icon. At least when I fixed it manually it looked fine for me in GNOME Dash to Dock.

Hello, first of all thanks for keeping this updated

I see you changed the icon, it is now not pixelated. One issue though, being it mostly black, it causes issues on dark themes

Using a version with a white outline and a dark color in the center would fix the issue (or just using default whatsapp colors)

Something like this for example

If you want, i could easily make one

Hi ColonelPhantom.

Regarding the emoji have a white background, this is a known issue for now. Will try a fix later.

Regarding the StartupWMClass it should be fixed in the last version.

Hi franciscocpg,

The package works well, except that emoji have a white background rather than blending in with the theme. Screenshot:

Furthermore, the StartupWMClass in the desktop file is wrong. I managed to get pinning etc to work properly in GNOME by changing it to "whatsapp-nativefier-d52542".

the icon is still pixelated on gnome dash to dock. instead of using the same icon for the .desktop, it creates a new low quality icon for display and stands side by side with the .desktop icon on the dock

Hi Franciscocpg,

yes it is german, I just updated it and it works like a charm now, thank you very much!

sispus, eugen-b

It looks like nativefier has changed the way it generates the file name (see and so it broke this build.

Thank you for the feedback. It should be working now.

Hi micronetic

There is a hack to make this works

But this hack depends on the language. Currently, the languages supported are english and portuguese.

It looks like the language you posted is german right? I'm going to add a hack for this language as well.
