Please don't flag this package as out-of-date if the new release is a pre-release. YakYak creates pre-releases for testing with the same release version as the final release will have, which would cause problems with the package SHA sums and break the package if I published them. The pre-releases have the "pre-release" badge on GitHub. Wait for the final release before flagging.

Done. Good luck!

I am interested in maintaining this package.

mistachie777 commented on 2020-05-06 06:23

I am no longer user Hangouts or Arch Linux, so I cannot maintain this package any more. If someone is interested in maintaining this package instead, please let me know so I can make you a co-maintainer and then transfer ownership.

@mingdao try to update your PKGBUILD and like mine. This AUR package seems unmaintained.

NB: I have no idea how this markdown works...

My update:




I have to update, required electron (instead of electron4) :

-  && /usr/bin/electron4 /usr/share/yakyak/app
+  && /usr/bin/electron /usr/share/yakyak/app

New release tagged v1.5.4 6 hours ago.

mistachie777 commented on 2019-07-01 19:12

EDIT: Disregard the previous comment about switching to electron 4 not working - it was fine after a reboot. I have made the requested changes (switching dependency to electron 4, and editing to use electron 4 to launch YakYak) and everything works correctly for me.

I don't know what the long term future of this program is now that Hangouts is supposed to disappear by October. If the developers don't plan to support the new Hangouts Meet/Chat programs, then this package will become obsolete. I will try to keep it working as long as it still useful!

The electron package has upgraded to v5. Yak Yak doesn't seem to work with it, even after a rebuild. The main screen won't show. When my system upgraded to the latest version of electron, it also installed an electron4 package.

To make this app work, you can edit before building this package and change 'electron' to 'electron4'. Alternatively, you can edit /usr/bin/yakyak and change 'electron' to 'electron4'.

Both these solutions are not great until the actual source file gets updated, but editing the source file and rebuilding the package is better. Since you're building without checking integrity already, it shouldn't complain.

As a workaround for those trying to install, you can pass along arguments to ignore the validity (integrity) check, at your own risk (well, beyond the obvious with AUR):

Trizen: trizen -S --skipinteg yakyak

Yaourt: yaourt --m-arg "--skipinteg" -S yakyak

Yay: yay -S --mflags --skipinteg yakyak
