Upstream project lead, here. I've recently switched to Manjaro, so I can actually use this now. The current PKGBUILD is perfect; thanks @Khorne! v1.26.2 is out now. Is there an easy way I can submit a change when I push a release out?

@adam900710 this package doesn't build, please can you fix it. You can remove the whole ar x line since makepkg extracts the deb file automatically.

If you wish to modify this PKGBUILD to build from the source, it will need to download from, unpack, and then run "build" in the top level directory.

The .desktop and icon files can be found in the "debian" directory, and after building, the executable will be in "_build/ckan.exe"

I apologize for contacting you this way but I don't have access to my email right now (I am not home and I won't be for a few days). Related to your request, ckan is opensource so this package should install it from source. ckan-bin is the one that should install the pre-built binaries. If you want you can submit an orphan request for ckan-bin. For now, you should modify this PKGBUILD to comply with the naming guidelines.

Sidenote. As partly pointed you by @cousinm, you shouldn't use relative paths.

../${pkgname}-${pkgver}.deb should be ${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}.deb

Even if you did that, this line isn't even needed because compressed files get extracted automatically.

Also, I don't see the point in renaming the source as the file name is already unique.

I add to replace

ar xv ../${pkgname}-${pkgver}.deb


ar xv ${pkgname}-${pkgver}.deb

to make this work. I don't know if this is an error in the package or something wrong in my environment...

Updated to 1.25.1, extracted from .deb package, so we now have man page, correct mono wrapper, icon, .desktop file, changelog.

Hey everyone,

I didn't realise I was the only maintainer to this project now. I'll update the package and give it some love next week when I finish travelling.

Hi, politas here from the upstream project. It's great to see someone taking on the job of making KSP-CKAN work properly on Arch; it's always been a problematic platform for us. Just to let you know, v1.22.6 has been completely broken by changes on GitHub. All users should upgrade to v1.24.0 (Which has a lot of improvements!) I think we'll be bringing out v1.25.0 soon, which will be adding support for the Making History DLC.

If there are any changes we could make in the upstream that would make things easier for Arch packaging, please let us know!

Btw, I would agree with @spacekookie in most of her points. Having small wrapper looks better to me than relying on another systemd service. Also, it would be really nice to have .desktop file (come on, it's GUI app). However, I agree with @birdspider about /opt. Overall, I think Debian's package's structure is optimal and using it will keep PKGBUILD small.

@birdspider, would you be interested to make use of it? If you are busy I can make a PKGBUILD, then you can edit whatever you wouldn't like. I'm equally happy with @spacekookie's PKGBUILD, so if any of you could merge it - it would also be great (although I vote for not using /opt).

UPD: Here is my modified PKGBUILD based on .deb: Maybe /usr/doc should be removed from there, I'm not sure.

The latest release (pre-release) on Github already has Debian package with .desktop file, icon, simple wrapper script in /usr/bin. I guess it could be used as a base for this package.
