Hi, would it be possible to change the font size? I am using it with a scaled display and it looks too small.

We'll see how long they still exist ... ;) but ok for now, yes.

There are forks of the original repo available :)

Urgh. It looks like Whatsie has been taken down :/

@SunRed disown package? "inactive maintainer"? What action would you like me to take? The code is unmaintained, there are no updates. Custom themes are broken but application is working perfectly, I use it every day.

Hi, Maybe this is nothing new, because I haven't use whatsie for some weeks, but all the themes are broken. I've try with $whatsie --style gtk2 but same results. This error appears: ERROR [2018-03-10 22:54:11.619] whatsie:renderer/preload/profile-picture-download: Error: appWrapper is falsy at /opt/whatsie/resources/app.asar/scripts/renderer/preload/profile-picture-download.js:123:14

It's not a virus. That just means those files are vulnerable to a specific exploit. If we check the details for this exploit ( we see that it only impacts Microsoft Edge running on Windows 10 because of a faulty way Microsoft Edge handles memory. It has nothing to do with Arch Linux. If you're going to post comments about anti-virus detection, you should point out that it doesn't affect us in anyway.

Thank you @tasnad, added. Yes it's still working perfectly fine. I use it everyday :)

I see this is abandoned. However, I just realized libxss is missing from the dependencies.
As whatsie still perfectly works, you could still add it to the dependencies :)
