@munzirtaha You can go to the temp buildir, and cp the Autopsy.desktop file up a dir, and it will compile

pre-release of autopsy 4.6 for Linux:

ChemBro commented on 2017-06-10 12:32

The Autopsy website states, that it has Linux support, but you need to build it from source (Version 4.4).

tomx3 commented on 2016-11-16 19:32

Cannot upgraded to autopsy4 because since autopsy3 there is no linux support anymore.

jenglisch commented on 2015-11-10 20:51

autopsy2 is no longer maintained, should be upgraded to autopsy4
NOTE: This is about a no longer maintained version of Autopsy (version 2). Version 3 information can be found here.

hashken commented on 2014-08-29 13:59

Version 2.24-5

* Made file permission changes as suggested by asdil2.
* Included package() function in PKGBUILD to remove deprecation warning.

I've taken over maintenance of this package.

asdil12 commented on 2013-08-01 15:04

please set the dependencies in the source pkg to (644/755).
at the moment they are (600/700) which is breaking chroot build.

Thanks; binary build now available at :)

Sietse commented on 2013-03-27 15:55

Thanks fukawi2, good call. Fixed.

fukawi2 commented on 2013-03-27 00:38

This does not build using makechrootpkg

$startdir is depreciated AFAIK, this resolves the issue and allows the package to build correctly:

Have fun gentleman. I have added daschu117's fixes and autopsy is now compileable again. I will continue to monitor the autopsy project's progression and update the AUR package when needed.

schivmeister commented on 2011-11-30 06:06

Is anyone going to fix/update this?

daschu117 commented on 2011-08-17 17:27

My last comment should fix that error.

I have no interest in maintaining the package though.

manouchk commented on 2011-08-17 16:28

Same error here. Looks like the package has been abandonned!

ptchinster commented on 2010-12-14 19:31

Anybody whos interested can ask for this to be orphaned on the irc channel.

daschu117 commented on 2010-12-14 19:29

Here's a that can be used with autopsy to enable successful building with makepkg:

Just save that file into extra/ (extra being a directory in the same folder as your PKGBUILD file) and you can use this PKGBUILD as is.

You might want to change the location of the evidence locker (variable named $LOCKDIR in this from /tmp to a better location on your system, but that's up to you.

If someone else starts maintaining this package, this file should be included in this package's AUR tarball as "" and the PKGBUILD should change this line:

cp ${startdir}/extra/${pkgname}.pl ${pkgdir}/etc


cp ${startdir}/${pkgname}.pl ${pkgdir}/etc

Anonymous comment on 2010-11-12 05:17

Package maintainer has had almost a month now since s1gma's post to fix this. Needs to be orphaned so someone else can work on it.

Anonymous comment on 2010-10-19 14:37

The PKGBUILD is not working ( stuff). Will the maintainer repair it ?
If not, I'll ask it to be orphaned, so that someone (phects ?) can take care of it.

phects commented on 2010-08-16 12:08

I repaired the PKGBUILD:

The solution of Basic-Master does not work, because the TSK installation path would point to the PKGBUILD's directory.

I created a working config file and added it to $files.

Anonymous comment on 2010-08-05 16:58

Update please.

jskier commented on 2010-07-28 22:10

Could this be updated to compile properly? If you need an updated PKGBUILD that works I should have time to get to it by next week.

chrishamm commented on 2010-07-08 13:48

Alright, I think I figured it out. First, I commented out this line:

cp ${startdir}/extra/${pkgname}.pl ${pkgdir}/etc

Then I built and installed the package, ran "./configure" once in the source directory and copied the new to /etc/ and now it appears to be working. this may not be the best solution but it's working here for now.

chrishamm commented on 2010-07-08 13:28

Hm, this doesn't seem to compile for me, it always fails telling me it can't copy "extra/". Any idea what's going wrong?
