@oldgaro, that's not caused by the .deb change. That's because /bin/etcher now belongs to etcher-cli.

You can type /opt/Etcher/etcher-electron if starting it from your DE isn't enough.

type -a etcher
etcher not found! ...

PS: appimage sounds a better idea than .deb crappy...

I just have to say thanks for packaging this for Arch. Etcher is a great utility!

There's a package for the CLI now. :-)

There's a new experimental etcher CLI command that uses that name, so I deliberately let it change. (There's no AUR package for the CLI yet.)

Would be nice to keep the `etcher` command as well, as got used to starting Etcher from the command line instead of the menu. Added the symlink in my own version of the package.

mkdir -p "${pkgdir}/usr/bin/"
ln -s "/opt/Etcher/etcher-electron" "${pkgdir}/usr/bin/etcher"

The binaries come *from* the .deb files. Of course the pacman package is tar.xz

The package takes more space because the electron stuff is no longer compressed inside a .AppImage file.

Why use .deb binaries? As far as I know .tar.xz or .zip is the standard for arch linux. Maybe this is the reason of this package taking more space.

As of 1.1.2, this package uses the binaries from the .deb files.
