Since eid-mw now contains the middleware, the viewer and the Firefox extension, the eid-viewer package is now deprecated. eid-viewer has been merged into this package.

Update: 2017-03-29
We are now using the build server. As explained in the PKGBUILD file, only the binary files hosted on the dist server are signed, the source files are not in order to avoid confusion with less tech-savvy sysadmins. For security-conscious users like us, we need to use the build server instead. This is why it has been decided, this PKGBUILD won't use the dist server anymore, as long the build server remains publicly available. Using the build server also fixes issues with curl user-agent in the process.

@alexisju. I can't reproduce on my side. Maybe at the time you tested, the build server was unreachable?

Any way, like explained in the pinned message above and in the PKGBUILD, I won't switch to the dist server again as the latter doesn't provide signing for sources and its firewall has an issue with curl requiring to change the user agent on the fly.

Broken source link break the install...

But the source still available here : https://eid.belgium.be/sites/default/files/software/eid-mw-4.2.5-v4.2.5.tar.gz

I have just updated to 4.2.5. The package is now using the dist server as the latter is now available as https. However I had to fill the following requests upstream:
[1] the dist server firewall doesn't like curl, we still have to disguise it as another user agent;
[2] the GPG .asc signature file is not present on the dist server; gpg checking has been thus disabled.

Some might think, why do I not rely on the build server? the latter is not reliable, and package or .asc file have sometimes improper permissions (these cannot be downloaded). I reported this problem upstream as well.

@stefops Could you please check with the new version I published? I couldn't reproduce the dependency issue you mentioned.

Please note I made sure the dependencies were met by checking with ldd, in a minimal Arch Linux installation, that all binaries were resolving the libs properly, and they were.

Please get back to me, if you encounter any issue.

could you add optipng to dependencies?

I updated the package to circumvent the problem with the download server which is down.
