Hi, just a notice that sha256sum is broken again today.

I think gst-plugins-base should be added as a dependency. The following error occurs (while launching the application) without it:

QSqlQuery::value: not positioned on a valid record
could not load multimedia backend "gstreamer"
QtMultimedia is not currently supported on this platform or compiler.

To address the sha256sum issue, you have two options:

  • You can bypass the integrity check:
yay -S freedownloadmanager --mflags --skipinteg
  • Alternatively, you can update the sha256sum in the PKGBUILD file:
cd ~/.cache/yay/freedownloadmanager/
sha256sum freedownloadmanager.deb | awk '{print $1}' | xargs -I{} sed -i 's/sha256sums=(".*")/sha256sums=("{}")/' PKGBUILD
makepkg -si

anyone encountered ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!, just remove package .cache folder from AUR helper like yay or paru.

@RAMChYLD sha256sum along with the version is updated now.

Also having issues with the sha256sum. I think the problem here is that the developers of FDM updates the package with a newer version but does not put the package version in the package filename but instead overrides it with a new version of the package (this is bad practice). This create problems when the package is updated and the sha256sum changes. There are ways to make makepkg ignore the checksum but unless you are building from git this is not recommended, especially given the software's history mentioned below.

sed -i 's/\/opt\/freedownloadmanager\/icon.png/freedownloadmanager/g' \ './usr/share/applications/freedownloadmanager.desktop'

In this line, it loads unknown icon path. By removing this line, it actually load the correct icon path
