Hi everyone,
I'm the new maintainer of this package. It's now up

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

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.

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.
