Thanks for the quick updates. I also have a few pkgbuilds in dire need of an update as well :-)

Updated the provides list with the suggested changes. Thank you for the reminder and apologies for not getting to it sooner.

+1 for updating the provides array: provides=(clap-host vst-host vst3-host)

This is in line with the current packaging practices for audio software in Arch. Having only Bitwig and a few packaged vst plugins means that another host has to be installed to satisfy the *-host dependencies. Ex:

It is also not necessary anymore to have bitwig-studio listed:

"Do not add $pkgname to PKGBUILD#provides, as it is always implicitly provided by the package."

This package needs provides=( clap-host vst-host vst3-host ) to prevent installing clap and vst plugins from trying to forcibly install other hosts.

You could download the PKGBUILD file and edit it (and update the checksums) then use it to build a new package using makepkg. This is what I've done and it worked absolutely fine. I've used the bitwig-studio-beta PKGFILE though to have it installed side by side.

I see today they've released 5.0 as beta, but their site provides only options "flatpak" and "ubuntu". Any good way to try 5.0 for us on Arch?

suggestion: add (plugin type)-host entries to the PKGBUILD provides=() array. Example: locally I edited the PKGBUILD adding 'clap-host' to provides=(). This allowed bitwig to satisfy a requirement of the pacman group clap-plugins.

I created a version of the bitwig-studio-beta PKGBUILD that works with the flatpak version of Bitwig studio 4.3 beta 1. It does require ostree as a make dependency to extract the files, but it seems to work fine. From what I've heard, they will be distributing more than just the flatpak in the future, so it probably won't be an issue anyway. Here is the PKGBUILD for reference:

alcomatt commented on 2022-05-11 22:12 (UTC)

from 4.3 Bitwig is moving away from debian packages and instead going the flatpak way, which is rather annoying. Do you think it will still be possible to package it for arch without being forced into the flatpak world of parallel(and duplicate) dependencies?

sha256 sums are good in the PKGBUILD and the source deb by Bitwig has not been modified. Please delete your yay/yaourt cache folder and try building package again. Something might have corrupted your deb file download.
