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());

For me, makepkg fails with:

install: cannot stat '/XXX/whatsapp-nativefier/pkg/whatsapp-nativefier/opt/whatsapp-nativefier/LICENSE': No such file or directory

Anyone know where to get the LICENSE from?

Great package, thanks! Just one comment: You are missing unzip as a build dependency. Otherwise the build will fail in a clean chroot.

I just installed this package, thanks for the build.

As many may have encountered this issue in many electron apps on Linux (or even Chrome/Chromium package) there is a way of disabling gpu acceleration (if needed).

Simply adds --disable-gpu flag.

I found the MR talking about it there.

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.
