@rizwan486 I cleared the cleanbuild files & started fresh. Worked now.

@crxssrazr93 It's bad that you're having an issue. Just now I tried to build again and it was a success. Maybe the file gets corrupted while being downloaded in your case. Can you try again and update me?

Got this error today. Thanks.

@7k5x How do you replace sha256sums with 'SKIP'? Not knowing what I was doing I uninstalled and tried to reinstall FDM thinking that'd fix the error @jackanderson also had, but now I don't even have the outdated version.

rizwan486 commented on 2021-09-15 15:21 (UTC)

@ZorinArch, Thanks. I just updated it.

ZorinArch commented on 2021-09-15 15:11 (UTC) (edited on 2021-09-15 15:12 (UTC) by ZorinArch)

Hi, Please Do NOT using weak password hashes (such as MD5 and SHA1). Back to sha256sum it more secure. who have problem with sha256sum can skip checksum.

7k5x commented on 2021-08-31 07:25 (UTC)

@jackanderson For a quick and dirty fix, you could replace the sha256sums with 'SKIP'.

jackanderson commented on 2021-08-31 03:42 (UTC)

@shin0x0b Seems weird but never happened.

shin0x0b commented on 2021-06-30 03:57 (UTC)

The font rendering isn't right after my build, any advice?

rizwan486 commented on 2021-05-26 19:03 (UTC)

@pepodev But I tried and it's working.

pepodev commented on 2021-05-26 16:07 (UTC)

source is not downloadable (https://dn3.freedownloadmanager.org/6/latest/freedownloadmanager.deb)

Maybe should be this -> https://deb.fdmpkg.org/freedownloadmanager.deb

TechXero commented on 2021-04-17 14:44 (UTC)

@Rizwan-Hasan new minor update ;)

TechXero commented on 2021-03-19 21:19 (UTC)

@Rizwan-Hasan Thanks so much.. I unflagged for now ;)

rizwan486 commented on 2021-03-19 21:18 (UTC) (edited on 2021-03-19 21:19 (UTC) by rizwan486)

@TechXero Thanks. Let's wait 24 hours. It's the official deb repo. If that new version doesn't come into the repo, I'll go for that you've mentioned.

TechXero commented on 2021-03-19 21:14 (UTC)

@Rizwan-Hasan was looking on official site https://www.freedownloadmanager.org/download-fdm-for-linux.htm

rizwan486 commented on 2021-02-10 05:32 (UTC)

ZorinArch@ It only works with firefox and google chrome. Don't know why it doesn't work with others.

ZorinArch commented on 2021-02-10 04:14 (UTC) (edited on 2021-02-10 04:15 (UTC) by ZorinArch)

Thanks, yochananmarqos for the fixes.

yochananmarqos commented on 2020-09-05 02:42 (UTC)

@Rizwan-Hasan: I found a better way that fixes the permission issues.

Again, remove noextract=(), it's not necessary. The .deb will be extracted automatically.

prepare() {
    mkdir -p "$pkgname-$pkgver"
    tar -xvf data.tar.xz -C "$pkgname-$pkgver"
}

package() {
    cd "$pkgname-$pkgver"
    cp -dpr --no-preserve=ownership opt usr "$pkgdir"

    install -d "$pkgdir/usr/bin"
    ln -s "/opt/$pkgname/fdm" "$pkgdir/usr/bin/fdm"
}

Hi yochananmarqos,
Thanks for the wonderful suggestion. I've added the symlink that you've suggested.

rizwan486 commented on 2020-09-04 19:37 (UTC) (edited on 2020-09-04 19:41 (UTC) by rizwan486)

Hi Jr80,
Please try again now. I've updated the package to the latest version. Sorry for the trouble.

Jr80 commented on 2020-09-04 19:23 (UTC) (edited on 2020-09-04 19:26 (UTC) by Jr80)

I had this error when updating

curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found ==> ERROR: Failed to download http://debrepo.freedownloadmanager.org/pool/main/f/freedownloadmanager/freedownloadmanager_6.11.0.3217_amd64.deb Aborting ... Failed to compile freedownloadmanager

yochananmarqos commented on 2020-09-04 19:07 (UTC) (edited on 2020-09-04 19:07 (UTC) by yochananmarqos)

You can install the files with one command, no need for noextract() or a prepare() function. Also, it's good to symlink the binary to /usr/bin/:

package() {
    tar -xvf data.tar.xz -C "$pkgdir"

    install -d "$pkgdir/usr/bin"
    ln -s "/opt/$pkgname/fdm" "$pkgdir/usr/bin/fdm"
}

Hello cruzjuniel,
Thanks for letting me know. I've updated the package.

cruzjuniel commented on 2020-07-26 12:15 (UTC)

Hi Rizwan-Hasan,

I tried installing this and noticed there is a new package

rizwan486 commented on 2020-06-28 03:20 (UTC) (edited on 2020-06-28 03:20 (UTC) by rizwan486)

Hi souravdas142 Thanks for letting me know. I've updated the package to the latest.

souravdas142 commented on 2020-06-28 02:46 (UTC)

Hello Rizwan-Hasan

Today I go for installation but there is url error... So please update the package to version 6.10.1.3051

or use url: https://dn3.freedownloadmanager.org/6/latest/freedownloadmanager.deb to get always latest version... for this url you have not to know the version number.

rizwan486 commented on 2020-06-14 12:32 (UTC)

Hello mnabid, Thanks for your kind help. I've updated the PKGBUILD.

mnabid commented on 2020-06-14 12:08 (UTC)

Hi Rizwan-Hasan,

please use http://debrepo.freedownloadmanager.org/pool/main/f/freedownloadmanager/freedownloadmanager_${pkgver}_amd64.deb as source instead. It's their official apt repository and will contain the latest version.

The download link is showing me an older version (6.7.0.2533 RC). Perhaps they frequently change the download link.

sandzhaj commented on 2020-06-13 11:15 (UTC)

Same here. Can't install it

It's Freeware Licence documented here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_Download_Manager

Ahmedtas commented on 2020-05-18 15:46 (UTC) (edited on 2020-05-18 15:50 (UTC) by Ahmedtas)

I found this in the .deb package in /data/user/share/appdata/freedownloadmanager.appdata.xml

<id>freedownloadmanager.desktop</id> <update_contact>support@freedownloadmanager.org</update_contact> <metadata_license>CC0-1.0</metadata_license> <project_license>Proprietary</project_license> <name>Free Download Manager</name>
and you should update the package version too.

You may add libtorrent as a dependency.

rizwan486 commented on 2020-05-17 20:22 (UTC) (edited on 2020-05-17 20:24 (UTC) by rizwan486)

Actually, I don't know what is Adware Licence. I've found this in freedownloadmanager's official deb package's info. That's why I also wrote it as this package is built from the official deb package.

Ahmedtas commented on 2020-05-17 20:12 (UTC)

What is the "Adware" licence ?

Ahmedtas commented on 2020-05-16 14:46 (UTC)

Hello can you update the package ?

Can you add the (.install) file which you can find in the .deb ?

Thanks in advance
