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());

I can confirm the wrong checksum. But even after ignoring it and building, I Just get "WhatsApp works with Chrome 49+"... Is the User Agent setting wrong?

With the new update the installation is failing for me because of an incorrect checksum hash for whatsapp-nativefier-inject.js.

I get a pixelated icon on Plank dock, can you fix it please? :)

Any chance for multi-language support? :)

Thanks @frealgagu all smooth and slick again ;-)

@hjr Please verify and let me know what is happenning. The PKGBUILD should be working for WhatsApp and whats-app binary names.

@frealgagu it is the makepkg not running. When I change the cp .. line to install the src/.. dump I get a package, but plasma does not find WhatsApp. It does run flawless when called from a commandline. Something chahged with the apps name like WhatsApp to whats-app and/or also with the installation path. Have not yet tracked all the occurencies to fix.

@ector @hjr do you have the last version of nodejs-natifier installed? I think the folder name changes according to the version of nativefier

same problem

App built to /tmp/yaourt-tmp-ettore/aur-whatsapp-nativefier/src/whats-app-linux-x64 ==> Entering fakeroot environment... ==> Starting package()... cp: cannot stat '/tmp/yaourt-tmp-ettore/aur-whatsapp-nativefier/src/WhatsApp-linux-*': No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package(). Aborting...

hjr commented on 2020-02-07 20:53

Since the update on 1-30 makepkg does not run successfully any more.

==> Start package()... cp: Call stat on '/home/hjr/.cache/pacaur/whatsapp-nativefier/src/WhatsApp-linux-*' is not possible: File or directory not found

And, yes, there is a file like "whats-app-linux-x64". The source tar ball changed and does not fit any more to the PKGBUILD. Can only be a tiny fix, but I am not sure how to best workaround it.
