@ahmubashshir, Thank you for taking over this great piece of work.

eliminater74 commented on 2020-07-16 11:32 (UTC)

The fact that this looks to be not maintained anymore, I dont have the time nor do I really wanna get into this, If anyone is interested in taking over and maintaining this package, Please take my "PKGBUILD" and release this as an update. My PKGBUILD is Original with needed mods that allow it to build latest GIT Sources of APKSTUDIO. Its one of the best apk decompiler/recompile out there. I use it alot to make custom changes to stock roms that have no source.

Pretty much, I am giving my permission to take the PKGBUILD script I changed and use it as you see fit.. I just dont have time to take over this package....

I did try and email the package maintainer and never once received a reply.. so its safe to say its dead.. So up for grabs for anyone that wants too.. if you need anything else from me. Just leave me a note.........

ShalokShalom commented on 2020-01-28 12:05 eliminater, your added lines give me "fatal: /home/shalokshalom/Dokumente/apkstudio-git/src/Qt-Frameless-Window-DarkStyle: '/home/shalokshalom/Dokumente/apkstudio-git/src/Qt-Frameless-Window-DarkStyle' is outside repository"

Could you just release your PKGBUILD on and post the link to it here?

Thanks a lot

Here you go:

Must Fine this on your own: install -Dm755 "$_pkgname/resources/$_pkgname.desktop" "$pkgdir/usr/share/applications/$_pkgname.desktop" install -Dm755 "$_pkgname/resources/icon.png" "$pkgdir/usr/share/pixmaps/icon.png"

I personally included it in my final version.

If you are having issues building this Arch Package, Follow this:

Download Snapshot, Extract it, CD into it, nano or any of your fav tex editors, open "PKGBUILD" Now, change this:

change: source=('git+') into this: source=('git+' 'git+' 'git+')

Then change this: sha256sums=('SKIP') into this: sha256sums=('SKIP' 'SKIP' 'SKIP')

Then below: pkgver() { cd "$srcdir/$_pkgname" printf 'r%s.%s' "$(git rev-list --count HEAD)" "$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)" } add this: prepare() { cd "$srcdir/$_pkgname" git submodule init git config submodule.Qt-Frameless-Window-DarkStyle.url $srcdir/Qt-Frameless-Window-DarkStyle git config submodule.QHexView.url $srcdir/QHexView git submodule update }

after all that, drop down too: build() { cd "$srcdir/$_pkgname" lrelease-qt5 res/lang/en.ts qmake-qt5 -r CONFIG+=release make } and remove lrelease-qt5 res/lang/en.ts

Save it and Run it, I use chroot for building, Something like multilib-build will work as well..

Hope this helps the people that want this package created and installed.

I ask the maintainer if he/she would please update PKGBUILD with above changes.

Thank you.

I think it may have been a bad decision on my part to be opinionated about upstream's post-install setup requirements. I've updated this package to leave the source alone.

Thanks for the heads up!

t1meshift commented on 2018-04-15 04:20 (UTC)

The package fails to build now because of changes in en.ts.

If you want to build it successfully, you can remove line 31 in PKGBUILD or try to make a new patch file.

prasadkumar013 commented on 2016-03-20 09:06 (UTC)

Update source=('git+' ' ') sha256sums=('SKIP' '5f4e92af1810a33f524cc692f8e14b6a94f17f414b30e312ef42e56d0de561c5') And for me apkstudio installed after I removed "pkgver() { cd "$srcdir/$_pkgname" git describe --long --tags | sed 's/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g' }"

A symlink works for me:

wlritchi commented on 2015-12-13 22:36 (UTC)

The fix was supposed to be "use latest source, and have users manually download a zip file to put it in their homedir". Except the zip file no longer exists at the download location. The way I'm reading the response to the bug, it seems that users are now expected to put apktool.jar in a subdirectory of their homedir, but when I did so, it still didn't work. apktool.jar is another tool that this program depends on to run. If that sounds to you like a job better suited to pacman dependency management, I agree, and that's why I plan on submitting a pull request to use tools on the PATH if possible.

jawz101 commented on 2015-12-13 22:21 (UTC)

read that github issue and I have no idea what they say the fix is

wlritchi commented on 2015-11-23 08:24 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up mssun. The current build instructions and changelog suggest that isn't necessary anymore, but from what I can tell it still won't run without it. I've filed a bug upstream; you can track it here:

mssun commented on 2015-11-23 07:19 (UTC)

``` -> Downloading curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found ==> ERROR: Failure while downloading Aborting... ``` I guess the url of is broken.

wlritchi commented on 2015-11-04 21:27 (UTC)

Thanks test0, I've now fixed this.

test0 commented on 2015-11-04 19:58 (UTC)

>unzip: cannot find or open external/, external/ or external/ Please add to download list.

wlritchi commented on 2015-10-14 08:42 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up k2s; I've pushed an updated PKGBUILD that uses the new repo and updated build instructions. Thanks borja for providing a workaround in the meantime :) The latest version addresses the need to somehow install runtime dependencies in the user's homedir, which is the reason I held off on updating the package over the past 12 hours.

borja commented on 2015-10-13 11:33 (UTC)

Hi! Please accept my apologies, but I'm not able to upload it to AUR due to wlritchi took over the package when AUR moved to GIT repos. Meanwhile you can grab the updated PKGBUILD from here:

k2s commented on 2015-10-13 06:49 (UTC)

installation doesn't work, because this project has moved to GitHub, see

borja commented on 2015-05-11 05:10 (UTC)

No issues here :-S It looks like the problem relies on QT5 paths. Check your QT5 installation to ensure everything is in place.

luolimao commented on 2015-05-10 18:13 (UTC)

Trying to run it gives the following unintuitive error: "This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb". Available platform plugins are: eglfs, kms, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, xcb."

borja commented on 2015-03-23 18:46 (UTC)

Cheers for the comment mate. I've just compiled the package using the provided PKGBUILD and it works for me. Maybe you have a non-standard QT installation on your Arch system??

zezadas commented on 2015-03-15 14:37 (UTC)

add some problems compiling, I add it this lines and it solved can you please review the package. export QT_SELECT=5 export QTDIR=/usr/share/qt export QMAKESPEC=/usr/lib/qt/mkspecs/linux-g++ export QT_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/include/qt

muflone commented on 2015-01-18 20:42 (UTC)

The package apkstudio was merged into apkstudio-git

borja commented on 2015-01-18 18:44 (UTC)

Renamed to apkstudio-git

fenuks commented on 2014-12-20 12:35 (UTC)

I think it would be the best to create new package apkstudio-git and delete/merge this one.

borja commented on 2014-12-12 00:33 (UTC)

Cannot rename it, I guess I drop and and re-create it. I'm not doing it to avoid duplicity.

muflone commented on 2014-11-22 16:45 (UTC)

This package seems to be a git package so please rename it in apkstudio-git
