Due to the upstream developers discontinuing "Generic Linux" packages, I am disowning this package maintenance. I invite any interested party to take over and adapt it for unpacking and preparing Arch packages from .deb files. As an alternative, the upstream team now offers a Flatpak package for installation.

I see. May i ask if you correspond with the UCSF team about this at all or just pull their releases to host here? Somehow I'm sure they'll provide a generic one if asked.

I've never hosted an AUR package but if you do decide to ditch this, i'd be willing to take over.

@rtviii: version 1.8 is still a release candidate only.

By the way, from what I can see, they are no longer providing "Generic Linux" .tar.gz files but flatpak ones. This means that this PKGBUILD will require a significant rewrite. Let's wait for 1.8, but if they truly stop providing.tar.gz, I will probably have to disown the package.

Hi. Is there any chance the v1.8 build will be picked up soon? Any way i can help with this?

They eliminated some python gc bugs.

@tzok It works! Thank you!

@Discoo: I have added the .desktop file. Please let me know if that works for you, as I do not use this functionality and could not properly test it.

Can you please add a .desktop file to this AUR package? Thanks!

@jashephe: Thank you! The PKGBUILD has been updated

After installing and attempting to run, I got the error:

ChimeraX: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

After installing core/libxcrypt-compat, I was able to run without issue; seems like this may be a dependency.
