On 2020/07/15, free42-nologo-2.5.19.tgz MD5sum check fails.

Thanks, upstream source archive has changed after the release, checksums updated.

As for the skins package I'll see if it is worth updating it or if I simply remove it.

==> Überprüfe source Dateien mit md5sums... free42-nologo-2.5.19.tgz ... FEHLGESCHLAGEN

(Manjaro Pamac on 2020-07-12), Also for free42-skins, please, note that Thomas Okken no longer provides all in one zip - on my other system I succeeded installing 2.5.18 (update now failed) and put the desired skin manually into ~/.local/share/free42 where I had found the state and keymap files. Please, check and correct - mainly the md5 issue. Thank you

And a few months ago it changed from .com to .nl… I'll fix it (again).

Package broken, the domain name changed from to

Simple diff to make it work: s/ in PKGBUILD.

I finished the patch to read a system-wide skin directory and enabled it by default for this package. This allows you to install "free42-skins" and select them in the menu without further steps. If you prefer an unmodified upstream version of free42, simply delete or comment out the line in the PKGBUILD.
