Seems to work nicely, thanks!

Sure, it's worth a try. The package now downloads the source archive to a filename which includes the package version. I don't use a caching AUR helper to test, so you'll find out if it works properly next time there's an update.

(For what it's worth, this feels like a workaround for an issue that should be resolved in makepkg or the AUR helpers instead, instead of every affected package. For example, maybe they could just store the package checksums and compare those to new PKGBUILDs.)

Hi J4913, do you think it would make sense to use the filename:: syntax in the PKGBUILD source, to avoid the problem with AUR helpers? Because the filename never changes, e.g. pacaur doesn't redownload the file, and simply fails at the hash check.

If you place the pkgver in the download filename, this problem would be avoided.

No problem. Consider filing a bug with your AUR helper (or whatever else provides your package cache). I suspect the issue might be caused by the fact that the download URL doesn't change between releases - Adobe just provides the new file on the same URL.

I flagged it, and you are right---I get the right md5sum. I cleared my package cache and now it installs properly. Thanks!

This package was flagged out of date claiming a checksum mismatch, but it still seems to work for me:

I will unflag for now. Could you re-check please?
