@jester I tried it and it succeeded. Remove the eula.html file from your folder and it will get redownloaded.

eula.html still continue with the wrong checksum error, at least for me

Muflone commented on 2019-06-12 20:42

@naraesk I've just checked and the EULA checksum currently matches. Try to download the file again

They're boring now.. I'll include a copy of the EULA in the package in the next update

@Muflone: fails with wrong checksum of eula.html for me

Muflone commented on 2019-06-10 21:26

EULA checksum fixed

@thehungryturnip: This is not easily possible. The problem is that the package uses a precompiled binary that is already linked against version 0.10 of gstreamer. If you like another linking, you need to compile yourself. I am not sure if this is even possible as it is a custom license. Thus it is not guaranteed to be open source...

Curious if this AUR be updated to use the "gstreamer" in the repository instead of the AUR "gstreamer0.10-base"?

It seems like "gstreamer0.10-base" not only hasn't been updated since 2017, but also has another AUR dependency that hasn't been updated in a long time.

Sorry if this a stupid question.

I'll update the package in the weekend. In the meanwhile you can simply edit the PKGBUILD, find the line 21 with sha256sums=('6b579bd4ecdf86f7e70a009886c511da0b5085b831b0d6afc42442cabc249b90' and replace 6b579bd4ecdf86f7e70a009886c511da0b5085b831b0d6afc42442cabc249b90 with SKIP

Next you can build the package again.

@argamanza: First download the patch somewhere and then go to the AUR git repo you cloned (where the PKGBUILD file is located) using your console. Then you simply issue patch -Np1 -i /tmp/foxit.patch (or whatever location you put the patch file). It should patch the PKGBUILD file (single line of output). After that you can build the package regularly. Simply put makepkg and install after successful build using pacman -U foxitreader-...... You can install and build in one step using makepkg -i.
