I don't believe there has been an official upstream update release to this package in years.

The current source's current version is 0.40.5-3.

I was able to find

But, there, the only "releases" are marked release candidates. There isn't an actual 0.41.0 release there, yet. This isn't something I'm using anymore, so I'm disowning the package for anyone else ot pick up.

I didn't verify if this is the same author, I don't know if the release candidates are of release quality, and this package is marked for releases, not developmental versions, so I didn't feel right changing the PKGBUILD to this new possible location because it's not something I can stand behind at all.

Hi Ant1.
Today it's working again, maybe a simple internet connexion problem !
Thank you for you work.

Hi sstassin,

I just tried, the URL works for me using makepkg. What is yaourt complaining about?

By the way, I will look into making a package for the Qt version:

I will probably name the package fpdb-qt (at least in a first time) if this prove to work.

Thanks for updating this verey important package for a poker player in the Aur repository, but yesterday i was unable to install it with Yaourt. It says me that the source package (or somtehing like that) juste after querying me to compile.

I a newby in the Arch Linux community but it seems that the download URL has changed ?

But it is "${_major}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}.tar.gz" in the PKGBuild. Is the "Download" folder missing in the URL ? Am i right ??

Updated to add optdepends + remove the terminal opening when starting from launcher.

makepkg cancels packaging, because the "pkg" directory is created without any permissions.

As a solution I put the content of the build-function into the package-function, leaving only one big package-function.

Regarding the issues mentioned in previous comments, i replaced

build() {
cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}"
python2 install --root="${pkgdir}/" --optimize=1

cat "pyfpdb/fpdb.pyw" | sed 's/env\ python/env\ python2/g' > "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/fpdb/fpdb.pyw"
chmod +x "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/fpdb/fpdb.pyw"

package() {
mkdir "${pkgdir}/usr/bin"
ln -s "../lib/python2.7/site-packages/fpdb/fpdb.pyw" "${pkgdir}/usr/bin/fpdb"

in PKGBUILD with

package() {
cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}"
python2 install --root="${pkgdir}/" --optimize=1
cp "pyfpdb/Cards01.png" "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/fpdb/"
cp "pyfpdb/Cards02.png" "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/fpdb/"
cp "pyfpdb/HUD_main.pyw" "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/fpdb/"
cp "pyfpdb/fpdb.pyw" "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/fpdb/"
chmod +x "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/fpdb/fpdb.pyw"
mkdir "${pkgdir}/usr/bin"
ln -s "../lib/python2.7/site-packages/fpdb/fpdb.pyw" "${pkgdir}/usr/bin/fpdb"
cd "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/fpdb/"
sed -i 's|#!/usr/bin/env python|#!/usr/bin/env python2|g' *.py
sed -i 's|#!/usr/bin/env python|#!/usr/bin/env python2|g' *.pyw

- Copying Cards01.png to /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/fpdb/ makes Hand Viewer work (presumably the same applies to Cards02.png , although the latter does not seem necessary for Hand Viewer). See line 164 of

I got it working with the following additional steps:

- It also needs python2-wnck as a dependency.

- HUD_main.pyw also needs to be copied to /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/fpdb/

- All .pyw and .py files in /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/fpdb/ need to have their first line changed from

#!/usr/bin/env python


#!/usr/bin/env python2

The HUD doesn't work if you don't install package python-xlib, and it also doesn't work when the first line of /usr/share/pyshared/fpdb/HUD_main.pyw says:

#!/usr/bin/env python

Changing it to say this instead fixed the problem:
