Fweeb, the download should work. I just tried making the package, and the download and checksum pass. Perhaps Dassault Systems was messing around with their website? I've noticed in the past that they've changed the download out without publishing it as a new release.

The checksum failed for me on the draftsight download link. Seems that something has gone wonky with their redirect (it's downloading the redirect page instead of the RPM file and checking sums against that). When I changed the download link to everything seems to have worked.

@ParanoidNemo, gstreamer0.10-base is probably not needed.

Here the correct PKGBUILD for the latest version:

# Maintainer: Justin R. St-Amant <jstamant24 at gmail dot com>

pkgdesc="Freeware CAD software for your DWG/DXF files."


mkdir -p $pkgdir/usr/bin
echo "#!/bin/sh" > \

cd $srcdir/$_pkgprefix

In any case if a PKGBUILD doesn't pass the validity check just run

makepkg -g and change the md5sum inside the PKGBUILD :)

great job Crispy24, However it is outdated :( It is not working
"it didnt pass validity check"

You could also install manually gstreamer0.10 and its dependancies, that worked fine for me.

blackisle commented on 2017-02-08 15:22

I can confirm it's working fine after removing gstreamer0.10 from the dependency!

jstamant commented on 2017-02-08 13:39

Try removing the gstreamer0.10 dependency.
I just tried this locally, and it installs and runs fine on my system. The only reason I have this dependency listed is because it shows up when I run namcap on the package. I will look into this further.

blackisle commented on 2017-02-08 10:13

Any way round the current broken gstreamer0.10 AUR dependency?

Thanks @xoan and @kikislater, now Draftsight run perfectly!
