I'm dropping all the dependencies from the package, as far I understand they are not required anymore as the QT libraries are shipped from the software itself

This PKGBUILD working with minimal changes: _pkgver=$(wget "" -q -O - |grep "tar.bz2" | grep "4kvideodownloader" |cut -d "_" -f4)


I made new md5sums with makepkg -g >>PKGBUILD, but in first line change md5sum to 'SKIP'

delete all sha256sums

In package() section after this line: install -m 755 -t "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/${pkgname}" "${pkgname}.sh"

(one line) sed -i 's/\$(dirname \$(readlink -f \"\$0\"))/\"\/usr\/lib\/4kvideodownloader\"/' "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/${pkgname}/${pkgname}.sh"

Working fine without .SRCINFO (because version number changing every time, now

Thanks Tritol and Everton. I followed Tritol's instructions, and got an error about missing "4kvideodownloader.install", but Everton's link had what I needed. Then after uninstalling the existing 4kvideodownloader, and trying again, it's working. Perhaps all this is basic Arch Linux knowledge, but this is the only way I've been able to learn this, and I appreciate it. I saved the steps into my Manjaro notes file.

git clone
cd 4kvideodownloader/
overwrite PKGBUILD
makepkg -si

just works for me

I just did an update in Manjaro and 4k video downloader won't run, saying it's missing Qt_5.

/usr/lib/4kvideodownloader/4kvideodownloader-bin: /usr/lib/4kvideodownloader/ version `Qt_5.15' not found (required by /usr/lib/

/usr/lib/4kvideodownloader/4kvideodownloader-bin: /usr/lib/4kvideodownloader/ version `Qt_5.15' not found (required by /usr/lib/

Have tried re-building using Tritol's link, but "fix_symlink_path.patch" fails verification.

Needs updating.

@grunix explicitly included the Qt libraries in the package as it uses older QT version

Manjaro Gnome has been missing the dock icon for this application, is there a fix for this?
