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='']") ), NICE/GREAT/GOOD!

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

@xavery: Thanks that worked!

@XTREEMRAGE : newer Electron versions have switched to using the newer "AppIndicator" status bar. Install xfce4-statusnotifier-plugin from AUR and add it to your panel. The component itself is named "Status Notifier Plugin".

@frealgagu : perhaps a message prompting the users to install AppIndicator status bars in their DE/WMs at install time would be in order?

Since the last 2 updates, I don't have a tray icon anymore in my XFCE environment. It does not show, does someone know where I can dig into for XFCE 4.14?

@je-vv, good to know. I will look into this. Thankd you so much!

@willspoke, it used to show up on the legacy tray, but now it does on the now so called notification area on LXQt (it's like the modern tray) Not sure if somehow that affects legacy trays at all. I think it's a electron thing, since now Signal and whatsapp both changed from legacy tray to new notification area Assuming also you didn't change the default tray option to false (I have it set to start-in-tray).

I am using i3, and on previous versions of this package, I would normally see a tray icon for whatsapp, but it is not showing for me at the moment. Does anybody else have this issue?

@shadowed87 glad it works for you as well. And thanks to the maintainer for including this fix in the PKGBUILD.

@xavery this fix is magic! Finally it works all the times!

@je-vv As I said, I have no idea what disabling this module does. I assume that, at worst, the JavaScript console simply won't have debug messages which aren't relevant to users anyway. Personally, I'm putting this package on hold in my system until something breaks.

@xavery, what you suggested does work for me as well. It shows the chrome 49+ for a second or so (I'd guess it'll depend on the CPU), and then it connects to the phone as usual... Is it dangerous to get it integrated into the AUR PKGBUILD? Thanks !
