Thank you for this! EAC is my go-to for ripping, and it's great to have in the AUR.

Is there a reason why the program version is in the program name (in the .desktop file)?

Tried with my drives and works fine, accurately ripped few CDs, except one issue: plugins are not working. I got only one metadata provider left, which is the built-in freedb engine. Although the other plugins' dll files a still in place, all other stuff like CTDB are gone. I suppose that's a bug?

I removed the prefix, updated from AUR with yay, and started up again. Loaded my profile config, and it appears to be working now without issues, and without needing any extra steps. Thanks for the fix!

Thank you for your comment. I tested the package with a fresh wine prefix and for some reason did not encounter this before.

I made a new release which skips MONO installation. No winetricks or dotnet or Win7 config required.

rm -r ~/.exact-audio-copy/ && eac

I do not have a CD drive atm so I cannot test all features. Feedback appreciated.

EAC will crash as you start a rip unless you apply a dotnet20 fix using winetricks

I'm not sure where to put that in the PKGBUILD but process after install is this Make sure you have winetricks installed.

Install winetricks

pacman -S winetricks

Install dotnet20 package

WINEDEBUG=-all WINEPREFIX=~/.exact-audio-copy winetricks dotnet20

Check that OS is set to Windows 7. Check Libraries for mscorwks override

WINEDEBUG=-all WINEPREFIX=~/.exact-audio-copy winecfg
