Works now, thanks so much!

j0hannes commented on 2023-01-27 22:05 (UTC)

I see. I seem not to have tried it with a clean environment. Should work now.

Thank you. The previous error is gone, but the update now fails at a later step:

install: cannot stat 'jabref/bin/JabRef': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().
 -> error making: jabref-latest

It should work now, there was a version change.

Attempted upgrade fails with the following errors:

==> Starting pkgver()...

@CaptainJack42, I've lowercased the path.

CaptainJack42 commented on 2022-06-14 10:27 (UTC)

The installation path should be updated to not use CamelCase ( /opt/jabref/ instead of /opt/JabRef/ ) to be compatible with the browser extensions ( or rather the org.jabref.jabref.json files linked in the installation manual. I know these files also exist in /opt/lib/JabRef/native-messaging-host/ with the correct paths, but it takes some unnecessary time to figure out what went wrong, especially since jabref-git and jabref also use the lowercase path from what i can see.

j0hannes: Thank you for the tip-off! It was indeed a caching issue. I was using yay and selecting the cleanBuild option did the trick.

@professed: I just downloaded the snapshot, extracted it to an empty directory, changed into the package directory and ran 'makepkg -s'. This is how it looks for me:

Are you sure that there is no caching involved? Are you using an AUR helper?

@j0hannes: Sorry for the delayed response. I tried again today and the validity check for '' is still failing. Thanks for your help!
