I've taken ownership and updated to the latest version. I've also decided to install and keep the static library file (libftd2xx.a) in case it's used in some cases.

Let me know if there are any issues!

I'm not using this package any more. Feel free to adopt.

arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
there should be no comma between 'i686' and 'x86_64'

kyak commented on 2013-04-06 15:32

Changed libusb->libusbx in depends

hatred commented on 2012-12-11 00:26

@kyak, no problems, you are welcome :-)

kyak commented on 2012-12-10 15:39

Nice catch, guys!
@hatred, i just adopted your changes. I hope i did it right, since i'm on x86_64 and can't test. Thanks for the hint.

Heh, libftd compile only for i386. You can modify PKGBUILD like:
1. before 'package()' add next two line:
[ "${CARCH}" == "i686" ] && _CARCH=i386

2. replace all entries of '${CARCH}' inside 'package()' to '${_CARCH}'

3. save and call 'makepkg'
