The checksums seem broken again:

bitcoin-qt.desktop ... FAILED

I get this error.

==> Validating source_x86_64 files with md5sums...
bitcoin-0.11.2-linux64.tar.gz ... FAILED

So sums are different in PKGBUILD I guess.

I updated the package to the release version. I also fixed the qt5 dependency.

Final has been released.

qt5 is not a valid dependency.

For now, I removed the bitcoin.conf installation, and it simply displays an advisory to create one. I will do further experimenting in the next few days, and update the package if I find a better solution.

@jeremydei the "bitcoin-core" package is designed to be headless. It builds from source, and it includes the following configuration flag: "--sysconfdir=/etc" which causes it to also check the directory /etc for the bitcoin.conf file. This package is a pre-compiled binary and I don't think the /etc directory is checked by default. I will experiment with it some and see if I can acertain whether it checks this folder or not. If it doesn't I will try out a couple other options. One option would be installing the bitcoin.conf file into home via bitcoin-qt.install, in order to conform to Arch packaging standards general directory guidelines. Another option would be to just display a message with bitcoin-qt.install, advising users to setup a bitcoin.conf file. Thank you for the feedback.

@uncle, I checked the bitcoin-core PKGBUILD and it drops the config into /etc/bitcoin/bitcoin.conf. I think this package should do the same. The software should load from /etc/bitcoin/bitcoin.conf by default if the user's homedir config does not exist. If this isn't the case then you can put a disclaimer in a post-install script mentioning to copy the config.

As it currently is this package is un-installable because it complains that my homedir "/home/jeremy" already exists on the filesystem.

Switched qt4 dependency to qt5.
