Twitch Desktop App build error

I was trying to build and install the “twitch” package but I get the following error during build phase:

Error building of libelectron

It appears that login to gitlab is required to access any content.

Hi @hw1380,

Question is, how did you try and install it?

Because AUR packages are not supported, they work but they are by no means guaranteed to, Manjaro has no control over where the assets come from. Hence that URL might be wrong. That’s what it looks like, to me, for anonymous use in any case.

I am unable to view libelectron’s Gitlab page as ell, also getting a login form. The package, libelectron, also fails to install here:

So I think your best bet would be to contact the libelectron package maintainer:

I think it’s @gameslayer9999.

Hey so my whole Gitlab account got randomly blocked for some unknown reason, I have made a support ticket to Gitlab about it but if I don’t get any replies or support soon I will have to move to Github and re upload everything just to continue everything and completely ruined… :sleepy:

Please patently standby as I will wait to see if I get any reply and if not I will have to start migrating and cant afford to wait

I can still build the package files locally and give them out tho that isn’t a secure solution


Hey @Mirdarthos @hw1380 the following repos have been restored using a temp mirror repo and can be installed.

  • LibElectron
  • Youtube
  • Twitch
  • Netlify-desktop
  • Syncthing-desktop
  • Twitter

I will update this comment as I continue to fix my packages


Thanks. Installation was successful and the App works as expected.
