Version has most probably a typo

With the update to version 1.9.0 I had to switch to rehosting the package with, since it is no longer possible to grab a direct download link from dropbox, or I couldn't figure it out. But I added back the checksum.

thx @samueldy and @midden for pointing things out. should be fixed now.

decent-sampler.desktop should be updated to replace 'Multimedia' with 'Audio' to avoid ending up in the 'Other' section of your application launcher. The icon section also needs to be updated with a hyphen in the middle: 'decent-sampler'.

package() needs to be updated to have Static in the extracted directory name:

@awhb Sorry, forgot to say this is a Python script. (Well, actually a Jupyter notebook, but you could just copy the code into a Python script and run it.) You just need to install the selenium and natsort Python packages. (I did this using a Conda environment, but it looks like you could also install python-selenium from the AUR and natsort from PyPI.) The idea is that the script just gives you the filename and URL, which you could then substitute into a template of the PKGBUILD (e.g., using the jinja2 Python package) to automatically generate an up-to-date PKGBUILD.

@samueldy: unfortunately i have no idea how to implement your suggestion. looks cool tho

samueldy commented on 2022-12-25 21:47 (UTC)

@awhb: the easiest way I can think of is to have a headless browser read that Dropbox page and pull out the latest URL. This gives you the filename and URL of the latest version, assuming they keep naming the tarballs the same way they have.

I tried playing with the Dropbox API but wasn't able to figure out how to list a shared folder that you haven't added to your own dropbox.

fixed the mismatching checksum for the icon, sorry about that.

besides that i have no idea how to grab the latest package automatically. if anyone can help it would be appreciated.

samueldy commented on 2022-12-25 00:29 (UTC)

The latest update (AUR commit b8d0c65) which changes the icon to one with a transparent background didn't also update the SHA256 hash for this image, so the build is failing. Can you update it?

Also, I think awhb's idea about automatically downloading the most recent version from Dropbox is a good idea and would make this AUR package much easier for everyone to use. Thanks!
