@supermario: Update to v.1.4.3 1672c7435add7dc47d8b4e85cbe31b6906365a5443798dd97a8d9a87cd1544c3 foobar2000_v1.4.3.exe

Package downloads the latest version of foobar, 1.4.1, instead of version 1.4 and fails due to ERROR: No more files foobar2000_v1.4.exe. This issue can be fixed by editing the PKGBUILD pkgver variable to 1.4.1 instead of pkgver=1.4 or by moving the downloaded foobar2000_v1.4.1.exe to foobar2000_v1.4.exe and then rebuilding

Please add StartupWMClass=foobar2000.exe to the [Desktop Entry], this allows DEs to correctly associate the fb2k window with the launcher icon.

@Aelius that works, thanks

Hey @supermario, I should have figured this out before but I was too lazy :) now that @deimos complained, I looked it up.

To exclude the beta from being downloaded, you just need to add -R '*beta*.exe' to the dlagents line.

like so:

DLAGENTS=('https::/usr/bin/wget -nH --cut-dirs=3 -r -l 2 -A exe -R '*beta*.exe' %u')

@Aelius thanks for figuring this out! I have applied the update

@deimos It downloads the beta because in order to still download from official sources (instead of hosting manually on dropbox or something similar) we basically download everything on the page and filter out what we're looking for. This is because the official download link is dynamic

I created an updated PKGBUILD that solves the error, which is still happening despite the recent update.

My PKGBUILD does not use unarchiver, it uses 7z, which
a) we don't have to compile; p7zip is in the extra repo.
b) most people are going to have p7zip anyway. I've never heard of unarchiver, I don't want to have to compile it just for this package and I don't want it on my system.
c) Clearly, unarchiver is not very good anyhow, what with these weird unicode errors.

7z is the better choice. This has been bothering me for a long while, I'll be happy to finally drop this unarchiver makedep

@supermario please take notice
