Dear eworm,

Please put the following into package() so that the .desktop icon can be drawn:

install -m644 -D ${srcdir}/freecad/src/Gui/Icons/freecad.svg -t ${pkgdir}/usr/share/icons

Yours Truly,

It looks like the pkgver() here is not working properly. My system attempts to upgrade the package even if there have been no new commits. I think the tags in the upstream repo are causing the issue. Maybe we could just use the total number of commits in pkgver() like so:

pkgver() {
cd freecad/
printf "r%s.%s" "$(git rev-list --count HEAD)" "$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"

Check updated.
Hope to get changes into FreeCAD and after PKGBUILD.
If FreeCAD will not make updates I guess patch or sed in PKGBUILD would fix it.

Any news about this cox?
I had read your thread on freecads forum
Had some problem with paths with plugin manager and so on.

cox commented on 2015-10-19 14:10

when running FreeCAD.getHomePath() in python console i get
would expect to get u'/usr/share/freecad' that is at where PKGBUILD is putting the files.
A lot of functionality "involute gear" "pluginmanager" etc. relies on this.

Seems like a commit/some commits were deleted AND the tag was changed. Not really an issue anymore as there have now been enough commits to put it at r5 so yaourt is no longer bugging me about an old version immediately after updating.

Either a commit was removed or the tag was updated.

Hmm, I am getting version 0.16.pre.r2.g4f6a50a-1 when I install this; did a commit get removed?

I have stoped geting updates from the source forge link in this PKGBUILD.
As far as I understand main repo is now on github.

Some smaller changes needs to be done to the freecad.desktop file.

Here's mine that works perfectly fine.
