Please check https://github.com/wireapp/wire-desktop/releases/latest before flagging this package as out of date. The Wire Devs have made clear what they consider to be a "release" and what they consider to be a "tag". The "tags" that are on GitHub tend to be a hit-or-miss, and sometime include experimental dependency versions. While they often work without a hitch, they can sometimes be unstable. As such, I will (mostly) be following the releases that include release notes.

Users who want the latest and greatest should use the wire-desktop-git package at https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/wire-desktop-git/

Please note, to use the Google Contacts API, you should first generate API secrets for an "other" application here: https://console.developers.google.com/apis/credentials/oauthclient

Then export them to your environment:
export GOOGLE_CLIENT_ID=...
export GOOGLE_CLIENT_SECRET=...

Finally, rebuild the package.

Just installed in Manjaro from AUR... compiled and installed without problems.
Thanks a lot for this!

Upstream has renamed most of the project components from 'wire' to 'wire-desktop'. This includes the binary used to launch the app. Please let me know if you have any trouble with this. If you use autostart, you might want to remove `$HOME/.config/autostart/wire.desktop` and toggle the "auto-start" menu item to generate a new autostart file with the correct binary name. Other than that, it was a problem-free transition for me.

@flacks.. Not to worry. Feel free to check out the -git package. It is running smoothly.

Sorry ConorIA, I just flagged this package as out-of-date with a link to the latest tag without having read your comment below. Won't happen again!

If anyone feels like experimenting, I have whipped up a version of this package that is patched for use with the electron package in the community repo. The installed size is just 31.91 MiB. I have done some testing, and the only thing that I know is currently broken is the auto-launch menu item (it tries to launch Electron instead of Wire). The PKGBUILD and other files are here: https://gitlab.com/ConorIA/PKGBUILDs/tree/master/wire-desktop%20(system%20electron)

@ConorIA, thx a lot for getting to this so quickly. Working again.

@kotajacob, @somaulte, @user1791, sorry about that. There was a bug in the Wire code (see: https://github.com/wireapp/wire-desktop/issues/398), but the fact that that made it into the PKG was my fault. I wrote a script to automatically update and push the package to the AUR. The script makes sure the package can build and install, but doesn't actually make sure it can run. (Oops!) I've added a check function to the script to avoid this issue in the future. Sorry it took me so long to respond too, it seems my mail server decided I didn't need to get any email these past couple of days!

@kotajacob, @somaulte

Same error here:
path.js:202: Uncaught TypeError: Path must be a string. Received undefined

@kotajacob
Getting the same error, even tried letting it pull electron on its own and still hits that error.
