bradfier: good idea – done.

The checksum issue is due to the tarball differing from the one hosted on GitHub (likely they were packed with differing timestamps).

It's easy to work around with the clean build flag, but if you want to fix it for other users you could perhaps add the $pkgrel to the name of the downloaded archive:

Lol. I didn't actually mean it was hard. I just meant that I downloaded the tarball and built it manually. Instead of the lazy yay-way.

“The hard way” … LOL. It is not hard to use the right tools. See also Building in a clean chroot.

This is Arch Linux, not Manjaro. If you need help with their tools, please ask them for support or bug fixes.

build this package the hard way with makepkg. that's the workaroud for now, I guess

@Fandekasp: Had the same problem using yay. Telling it to do a cleanBuild for apg fixed the problem for me.

Rhinoceros: URL fixed, and thanks for the links! I will have a look at them.

Thanks @buzo. I like it too! I just gave pwgen a try, but I think apg is much neater.

FWIW there's also this newer fork with these changes, but it looks like it's beta, so maybe not worth bothering with.

Also, please change the URL, it's still 404-ing. Cheers!

I really like this little tool, so I want to keep it alive.

Therefore I have imported the last available version 2.2.3 to my own Github repo and have changed this package to download from there.
