/usr/share/fritzing/parts contains the parts db which is provided by the package, which should not be updated by the user. Instead, the user can run the command "fritzing_clone_parts" once which clones the parts db into the user's home (located under ~/.local/share/fritzing). On next start, Fritzing will use this parts db instead of the one under /usr/share. From now on updating the db should work.

This is somehow a workaround to provide both a package that works out-of-the-box and the self-update functionality of Fritzing. See https://github.com/fritzing/fritzing-app/pull/3238 for a discussion on this. This package basically applies the changes of the pull-request to implement this functionality.

This package needs to be rebuilt after the latest libgit2 update.

I've just installed the package and when I run and try, from menu, to check update a popup window say me that I have to enable write permission on folder: /usr/share/fritzing/parts

Can you suggest me there is a way to make this works?

I have seen this multiple times that release tarballs from github change their checksum. Seems to be the case here, as well. I currently get the following for 0.9.3b.tar.gz: 2475a95aad2c1536eef3fdb72665c5c16590644b45bd110a0cde223c916625b8

I will update the PKGBUILD later today.

The main tarball failed its checksum for me. Is anyone else getting this? Weird, was the 0.9.3b release changed without changing the release number?

This is the sha256sum I get for 0.9.3b.tar.gz:

@peste88: Well, that is an upstream decision. We would have to explicitly change this in this package, but I tend to stick to upstream as close as possible.

Hello, I was wondering...
Why does it has to be an upper case letter to call that Fritzing thing.

@ctag: Please see my comment from 2017-02-20 20:49 and follow the steps there.

Could you change `mkdir' to `mkdir -p'? Thanks.
