This is a git pkgbuild. Please do not flag out of date or complain about new versions released unless the pkgbuild no longer correctly builds the package.

After installation, the package version is 0.15.0.r1.g2f93c2f, while pkgver is set to 0.15.0.r1.g2f93c2f6 (notice the extra character at the end). This causes the package to be constantly updated. [I copied this from the flagged out of date]

@IrvineHimself Technically it is correct that this package pulls from the master branch. It is just using git instead of downloading the release builds.

The problem with changing the branch to develop would be that this might cause issues since the develop branch is not used as stable.

But I will adjust the upstream url.

Well, that's interesting. According @TheJackiMonster, there is no difference between the current AUR git package and the Official build:

Ah.. the problem with the AUR package is that it pulls from the master branch which is identical to the latest release binaries. Ok, then the issue seems to be solved actually in the develop branch.

If I understand that correctly, the PKGBUILD for manuskript-git should be pulling from the development branch

see here



Also, as an aside, I just noticed that the upstream url is pointed at http, could you change that to the more secure https

Using either the Official build or the git build from the AUR, the package crashes when adding a new detailed info field in the Characters pane

On the other hand, after downloading the zip file and installing it to /usr/local/lib/Manuskript, running


works without problem

For more details, see my upstream bug report:

You could add python-languagetool or python-languagetool-git as optional dependency for upcoming releases. So the new spellchecker using LanguageTool will work properly.

@milouse the desktop file should be fixed now. I used the icon arg to gendesk; I think that's a bit neater.

@milouse sorry for the delay; looking at this soon.

The provided desktop file is broken (duplicate Icon entry) due to a change made in the prepare function of the PKGBUILD.

Instead of doing

printf "\nIcon=/opt/${_pkgname}/icons/Manuskript/icon-512px.png" >> "${_pkgname}.desktop"

You should do

sed -i "s|^Icon=manuskript$|Icon=/opt/${_pkgname}/icons/Manuskript/icon-512px.png|" "${_pkgname}.desktop"

Thank you very much.

@swalladge Thanks. Still learning how Arch and the AUR works.
