Could you also extract the doc-html directory somewhere in the PKGBUILD? It's required by the Factorio Modding Toolkit, so I had to extract it somewhere manually.

The best way would probably be to extract the whole archive to /opt/factorio and link to /opt/factorio/bin/factorio from /usr/bin, because then I think fmtk could detect the doc directory automatically.

Build failed, if ~/.factorio does not exist and you try to save your game token. May add a mkdir -p "${token_file%/*}".

Hey I wanted to use the ingame updater instead of updating the whole aur-package, but it returns this error:

560.825 Error DownloadingUpdatesGui.cpp:108: Checking update packages failed: Error opening update package: File /usr/x64/factorio not found (No such file or directory)

I tried to symlink this folder to /usr/share/factorio but this results in another error:

filesystem error: DirectoryPackage::fileSize: Invali argumet [/usr/x64/factorio] path1: /usr/x64/factorio

Which kind of makes sense since the size of the symlink obviously wouldn't mache the bin file size

I was wonderung, if the PKGBUILD could be modified in a way to make the ingame updater working, since it is very convenient to just have the delta-updates for small bugfix updates.

Also one could the ignore-list the package in the packman.conf..

For those writing about weird behavior in the PKGBUILD, and those who noted that the checksum for the archive is missing, I've been working on a separate project that just downloads the factorio archive, with little to no interaction. It's already on the AUR:; and I have an appropriate PKGBUILD for factorio-experimental and factorio (stable) as well:

Would it be possible to have a way to install the package without user input? I often find myself launching a bunch of upgrades at once and come back later just to find that this package is waiting for input. This a bit frustrating, especially when all you need to type is the Enter key. Thanks!

The script doesn't have a check if the player-data.json file exists in the specified settings folder. On a clean install the .factorio folder isn't available so the script fails.

Perhaps add a check to the script for creating the .factorio folder in the home profile so that this error is resolved.

Great work on maintaining this package btw!

Would it be possible to also offer the server settings from factorio-headless-experimental in addition to factorio.desktop? I'd like to run a server on my computer and also connect to it and it that's currently impossible right now with this package.

It worked, thanks!

@ypoluektovich I've now updated the PKGBUILD, give it a try!

There seems to also be a reference to some API to exchange credentials for the token, that'll be helpful for first time installs.
