'signal-desktop' is not a duplicate of 'signal' but does some things 
quite differently. Only really needed dependencies are installed, 
resulting in a much smaller download and disk footprint.

'signal-desktop' also auto-detects a Gnome environment and helps the 
user to make use of the tray icon functionality of Signal-Desktop. It 
also checks for libraries which impair the functionality of the tray 
icon when using KDE and instructs the user to remove them if they are 
not required by any other package.

Last, but not least the package name seems more consistent to me for a 
program called 'Signal-Desktop' (AUR also provides 'signal-desktop-bin' 
and 'signal-desktop-beta').
