If they don't put it back soon, I'll upload it to github, as it's GPL.

@rosslaird, seeing the same thing. Interestingly, all the source links on their page now 404. I'd guess it's a mistake...

Currently getting this:

ERROR: Failure while downloading

Loading the above URL directly from the browser yields a 404, so I'm guessing the file has been moved.

@twa022, I'd rather not make functional changes to the script.

Could you change the patch to this (

so that /usr/local/bin takes precedence over /usr/bin. (Have dropbox script in /usr/local/bin to export QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE to get proper theming)

Thanks, build now works again.

The package build is failing with a validation error because has been updated.

Does anyone is getting this message?

@bluesheep, @Jones:
Try cleaning you build directories. It should work by now

Jones commented on 2015-11-02 16:13

Same for me: " did not pass the validity check"
