@m040601 I meant to bump the pkgrel so that people would know that it needed to be updated, but instead I did ver. Once again nice catch. :) It should be fixed, for real this time. Now the installed version will be 3-2.

Thanks for the work maintaining the PKGBUILD. Nice to see other Arch users interested in this stuff. The original repo hasnt seen much updates since 2022, but it still works very well. There are a million clones of it on the net some with some added functionality or extras addded.

Other options,

There is an error in the version number.

You changed to 4,

5  pkgver=4
6  pkgrel=1


git clone

cd bashblog

git shortlog | head -n 1 | tr -Cd "[:digit:]"


gives 3. And then that is what lands on your system,

pacman -Qi bashblog-git

Name            : bashblog-git
Version         : 3-1

So the AUR helper will keep complaining it's out of date and want to reinstall it.

You probably want to change the version number to "3-2". Not 4.

@m040601 nice catch. Definitely a typo on my part. It is fixed now. Thanks :)

This PKGBUILD has a installed permissions error.

$ pacman -Ql bashblog-git

bashblog-git /usr/share/
bashblog-git /usr/share/bashblog/

$ ll /usr/share/bashblog/

drwxr-xr-x 272 root root  12K Mar 10 21:39 ..

That file is writable by anyone ????!!!

Must be a typo or error on the PKGBUILD

  install -m666 "$_pkgname/" "$pkgdir/usr/share/$_pkgname"

It is fixed now, the markdown package for Arch is discount. Sorry for taking so long to get to this, the last couple of weeks have been crazy.

this PKGBUILD references a non existing optional dependency,

markdown (optional) – markdown support 

But there is no PKGBUILD "markdown" anymore
