Thanks @MuffinBomber, I have implemented your suggestions in the PKGBUILD.

Shouldn't gtk2 be inside depends instead of makedepends? It doesn't run without it installed.

I also don't think you need to explicitly list bash as a dependency. It's a dependency of base, which everyone has installed.

@benalexau Thanks, it installs fine now. :)

@dmoebius, I have just manually updated the sha256sum and bumped the pkgrel to 2. IB very occasionally re-release the same version but with a different download and therefore sha256sum. The script which maintains this package picks up the earlier download and in such cases won't update the PKGBUILD if a new sha256sum is detected for the same version. While this approach requires a manual intervention as occurred on this occasion, the pkgrel bump provides transparency to detect what happened (as users who ended up with pkgrel=1 did so from the original download for that version).

dmoebius commented on 2023-01-03 21:43 (UTC) doesn't pass the validity check. Wrong SHA256?

JRE issue was resolved for me with the last builds.

But now there is

==> Validating source files with sha256sums...
    LICENSE ... Passed

    ib-tws.conf ... Passed

same issue with JRE :(

Not sure why but I get the JRE error with the new fixed PKGBUILD. If I remove the new /* then it builds without issue.

Thanks @blueowl. I have updated the PKGBUILD with your fix.

I've got the same error as @C_Schmidpeter. The JRE location is not properly expanded.

The JRE is not directly in /home/user/.local/share/i4j_jres/Oda-jK0QgTEmVssfllLP, but contains JRE version directory as well - /home/user/.local/share/i4j_jres/Oda-jK0QgTEmVssfllLP/1.8.0_202_64

Here is a fix:
