NOTE: We don’t officially support Arch Linux for use with the Mattermost Desktop App. The provided guide is unofficial.

  1. Open Terminal

  2. Install NodeJS via nvm:

    curl -o- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nvm-sh/nvm/v0.39.5/install.sh | bash
    nvm install --lts
  3. Install other dependencies:

    Linux requires the X11 developement libraries and libpng to build native Node modules. Arch requires libffi since it’s not installed by default.

    sudo pacman -S install npm git python3 gcc make libx11 libxtst libpng libffi


  • To build RPMs, you need rpmbuild

    sudo pacman -S install rpm
