Added shawly's patch to the PKGBUILD and updated the version in .SRCINFO.

How, this can be used with AUR helpers by setting an environment variable:

I changed the PKGBUILD to allow the usage of AUR helpers, with this patch you can set the download URL via export DUNGEONDRAFT_DOWNLOAD_URL=xyz to the URL that your Humble Bundle store page provides and then install the package. It will verify the variable with the url and then download and install the package.

With this there is no more need to clone the AUR repo and manually download the package which should make things a little more convenient.

I don't know if this is helpful but the API query needed to list download urls is:


Replacing YOURKEYHERE with the key from the url of your purchase.

Get the version of the Latest release:

DD_VERSION=$(curl "$url" | jq -r '.subproducts[].human_name' | grep -i 'latest' | grep -oE '[0-9]+(\.[0-9]+)*')

You can then get the zip url with the right auth strings:

curl "$url" | jq ".subproducts[].downloads[] | select(.platform == 'linux').download_struct[] | select(.name == 'Manual Install') | select(.url.web | contains(\"$DD_VERSION\")).url.web"

I'm an arch noob so don't know if it's possible to pass a variable/read from the environment variables into the process but this would automate the download as long as you have something like DUNGEONDRAFT_KEY=foobarbaz in your environment.

@pdf could you maybe post just the content necessary for the build file? Though I think I edited the original file correctly, my steps where: pamac clone --builddir /tmp/builddir dungeondraft cd /tmp/builddir/dungeondraft vi PKGBUILD pamac build however I get an error saying that for dungeondraft 'x86_64'-Architektur is not available. Did I do something wrong?

The following patch allows building using the .deb package, which seems to be returned no matter what you click in the Humble library (this method also happens to be much simpler, and less prone to breakage):

I had to delete the "Dungeondraft.png" line from the PKGBUILD in order to install Dungeondraft, but it otherwise worked fine.

If anyone else is struggling to install this with an AUR helper, make sure you read the comment in the PKGBUILD.

As I look to it, it seems to turned into paid software. :/

Pdetiege commented on 2021-09-28 19:44 (UTC) (edited on 2021-09-28 19:45 (UTC) by Pdetiege)

Getting the same error tombenko had while installing using yay: ":: (1/1) Parsing SRCINFO: dungeondraft ==> ERROR: pkgver is not allowed to be empty." Any advice on how to solve this?

tombenko commented on 2021-05-19 19:32 (UTC)

makepkg says pkgver is empty.

If you're seeing a crash after the latest update, try changing the mono lib dir to a symlink to /lib64, e.g.

ln -s /lib64 /opt/Dungeondraft/data_Dungeondraft/Mono/lib
