extract deb packages
curl |grep 2gis_ |sed -e 's/[^*]*href=\"//m' -e 's/%2/+/g' | cut -d'"' -f1 | sort | tail -2

This will extract URL to the latest package:
curl "" | awk -Fzip '{if(match($0,"2GISShell") != 0){AA=substr($2,index($2,"http"));if(match(AA,"http") != 0)print AA"zip"}}'

I stopped updating 2gis packages because of distro switch. If someone wants to do it, here is a set of scripts I used monthly:

Fixed PKGBUILD for beta:

ForeverYoung commented on 2014-11-27 09:00

Use 'icu52' dependency.

Also, these actions are needed (from deb):

# create group
groupadd --force 2gis

# set permitions
chown root:2gis /usr/bin/2gis
chmod g+s /usr/bin/2gis

chown root:2gis /var/cache/2GIS
chmod g+ws /var/cache/2GIS
chown root:2gis /var/cache/2GIS/v4
chmod g+ws /var/cache/2GIS/v4

Now available packahes only for ubuntu. I tried wrote PKGBUILD without success.

My experimental PKGBUILD:

pkgdesc="Geographic Information System (GIS) for some Russian and Ukrainian cities."
depends=('libsm' 'libcups' 'qt5-svg' 'qt5-webkit' 'hicolor-icon-theme' 'xcb-util-renderutil' 'libpng12')


package() {
msg "Converting debian package..."
cd "${srcdir}"
tar xvJf data.tar.xz -C "${pkgdir}"

and dirty install-file:

post_install() {
xdg-icon-resource forceupdate --theme hicolor
update-desktop-database -q
ln -sf /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/
ln -sf /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

post_upgrade() {
post_install $1

post_remove() {
xdg-icon-resource forceupdate --theme hicolor
update-desktop-database -q
rm -f /usr/lib/

Now I get:
2gis: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/2GIS/v4/lib/ undefined symbol: UCNV_FROM_U_CALLBACK_ESCAPE_52

What about new beta version? (maybe as a separate package)

namcap 2gis-
2gis E: Files in /usr/share/icons/hicolor but no call to gtk-update-icon-cache or xdg-icon-resource to update the icon cache
2gis E: Dependency hicolor-icon-theme detected and not included (needed for hicolor theme hierarchy)
