Thanks, yochananmarqos for the fixes.

@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.

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

I had this error when updating

curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found ==> ERROR: Failed to download Aborting ... Failed to compile freedownloadmanager

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 Rizwan-Hasan

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

or use url: to get always latest version... for this url you have not to know the version number.
