Upstream no longer seems to provide the latest prebuilt binary.

I suggest users switch over to the source-based cpdf to get the up-to-date release.

As this was orphaned for some time and this a tool which I frequently used, I am taking over the maintenance. It's already been updated to v2.5.1. :)

Besides what @zaidan just pointed out, most of the dependencies are un-needed. The makedepeds are all part of base-devel anyway, which is required to build AUR packages. As for glibc you can't have an Arch system without libc anyway, and if you could this package probably wouldn't even need it anyway.

@parnmatt The redundant strip in prepare results in a checksum error when makepkg is run twice without deleting the modified source binary. You should never modify the source binary in place to keep idempotency. Otherwise this package does not support caching source files and results in undesired behavior for scripts that use the --nobuild option to preprocess the package. Since makepkg has a strip stage, the prepare function is redundant. Simply remove the prepare function and you have improved build time :-)

Checksum chek still fails:

==> Validating source files with md5sums...
    LICENSE ... Passed
    cpdfmanual.pdf ... FAILED
==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

Please correct.

The current mdsums are not correct. They should be fixed to:

dff16ee6958ec822c99324d513567d71  cpdf
ce08846463064845a5ce18191dd90298  cpdfmanual.pdf

for an x86_64 system.

@zoe, not for me;


wget -qO- | md5sum

and manually downloading and checking give the same hash of 8d549251f5c121ac09b33161a6254c2a

can you please tell me what hash you're getting for the file?

Wrong md5sums for LICENSE :

    ==> Validation des fichiers source avec md5sums…
       LICENSE ... ÉCHEC
       cpdfmanual.pdf ... Réussite
    ==> ERREUR : Un ou plusieurs fichiers ne sont pas valides !
    ==> ERREUR : Makepkg n'a pas pu construire cpdf-bin.

@SanderMaijers it seems that cpdf devs do not use release tags on their github page; otherwise I would have been notified of the version change.

It has been updated.

There’s a snag.
