Description Evgeny Stambulchik 2019-07-28 07:32:56 UTC
I wonder why there is no proper ebuild (from the sources) of signal-desktop.

It's nodejs-based, I think? Support for that isn't great in Gentoo right now.

Signal is an Electron application.

It might be possible to avoid recent net-im/signal-desktop-bin issues if its Electron runtime was build against the host system rather than running an upstream binary.
