I also can't reproduce the segfault

I cannot reproduce the segfault here.

On the other hand, the application name that appears in the task bar needs to be fixed.

Hi, it is possible to add a dark theme? through CSS or Electron or something else? Just like you change the style on browser with the addons "Stylus"

Thanks for your time. Best Regards

Is this compatible with any GNOME icon tray extension?

From the Arch GLIBC bug url:

I installed a patched version of glibc and everything seems to work again:

pacman -U

I tried with whatsapp, and Bitwarden (also eletron based and wasnt working before) and both work fine

It looks like there are several packages based on electron with the same issue. I've tried to install rocketchat-desktop but fails with "segmentation fault", however WhatsApp-web-desktop is working fine (I've not tried to reinstall it neither I want to do it). But it looks like is caused by glibc library once was upgraded to 2.28. With 2.27 it's working.

I'm having the same issue than @jhuesos

After last upgrade, I am getting:

/usr/bin/whatsapp-web-desktop: line 2: 21145 Segmentation fault

Same happens with Skype (which both use Electron). Strange thing is that Visual Studio Code (also electron) seems to work just fine.

I just tried to re-install whatsapp to see if that helped but nothing.

EDIT: I have tried to get more info about the issue (sorry, I am really a newbie on this) and after running:

LD_DEBUG=files whatsapp-web-desktop

I got a long output, but I guess this is the more relevant part:

  5580:     calling init: /opt/whatsapp-web/
/usr/bin/whatsapp-web-desktop: line 2:  5580 Segmentation fault      (core dumped) /opt/whatsapp-web/WhatsApp
      5579:     calling fini: /bin/sh [0]
