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.

Additional skins are now available via the package free42-skins.

Currently you have to copy the skins from /usr/share/free42/skins to ~/.free42 because the author of free42 thinks that "no sysadmin is going to install Free42 in /usr/bin and make a set of skins available in a system-wide directory".

When I have enough time I might add a patch in this package to add support for system-wide skins.
