@Asuranceturix I edited, the content is the same but hopefully now it should be more clear that is a false positive due to ClamAV. I also reported to ClamAV their error.

@guiodic: You're absolutely right, but I don't know how to solve it. I had never tried to print directly from Reader, I just used it to digitally sign documents.

@ilario: As you can see by examining the PKGBUILD, the only binary source files come straight from Adobe's FTP. Unless you're suggesting someone has hijacked it and furthermore altered the files so that the checksums are still valid, I'd say it's a pretty safe bet that ClamAV is talking utter nonsense; I'd kindly suggest you edit your comment not to spread unfounded rumours.

ClamAV reports some of the files as malicious, but analysing these via VirusTotal shows that it is a false positive (ClamAV is the only antivirus to suspect of these files).

I checked directly downloading the installer from the Adobe website, and is already recognized by ClamAV as malicious. So it is a false positive with the installer from Adobe, not related to AUR.

it works fine but doesn't print

Nevermind, it is a bug of cabextract 1.10.

After manually updating it to 1.11 this install goes through.

If I manually create the i386 directory with

mkdir /var/tmp/pamac-build-plalloni/adobe-reader-11/src/tmp/env/dosdevices/c:/windows/temp/i386

And then manually run

cabextract -q -d /var/tmp/pamac-build-plalloni/adobe-reader-11/src/tmp/env/dosdevices/c:/windows/temp -L -F i386/mspatcha.dl_ /home/plalloni/.cache/winetricks/win2ksp4/W2KSP4_EN.EXE

Then it works.

So, it seems like cabextract does not want to implicitly create directories anymore.

If that is the case, then the fix would lie into winetricks itself, unfortunately.

I wonder if there is anything we could do from this package.

This is not working for me.

This is the output I see

I tracked the error to what seems to be a different behavior of cabextract, because I can see that i386/mspatcha.dl_ exists into W2KSP4_EN.EXE, but the command to extract it does not work.

Ah great, I tried again several times but today it seems to work. Thanks :)

@japhir : Apparently they have a load-balancing DNS entry for Sometimes it will resolve to, which appears to be down at the moment, and sometimes it will resolve to, which is still up and running. I have succeeded at downloading both files from the latter, albeit quite slowly.

I'm getting a curl timeout when I try to install this

==> Retrieving sources...
  -> Downloading AdbeRdr11000_en_US.msi
curl: (28) Timeout was reached
Warning: Problem : timeout. Will retry in 3 seconds. 3 retries left.

which it tries 3 times and then dies. Any ideas? Is it still up for others?
