The official link for 32 bit i686 does not work, thus removing i686 support.

Error during package build:

mkdir: cannot create directory '(...)/.cache/pikaur/build/meteor/pkg/meteor/usr/share': No such file or directory

To fix this error, edit the package() {} section in PKGBUILD. Change this line:

mkdir "$pkgdir"/usr/share


mkdir -p "$pkgdir"/usr/share

The build process will now succeed.

Zepman, fixed in 1.8.1-2.

Simply running 'meteor' after installation will end with "/usr/bin/meteor: Permission denied". This is because /usr/bin/meteor does not have executable permission, which should normally be enabled for every file in this directory.

Fix this by running (as root or with sudo):

chmod +x /usr/bin/meteor

Sorry, I've failed at writing a standards-compliant package for this tool. It also seems like this tool is falling out of favor since its release in 2012. I've therefore orphaned the package and invite anyone who is better at writing PKGBUILDs for difficult packages to take over.

Hello friend. I think the PKGBUILD actually needs to be totally rewritten unfortunately per advice of @cluxter. I'm currently working on that , but if you have a better PKGBUILD I will add you as co-maintainer :)

@flacks: Sorry but this package is poorly written. Reading the official script carefully would have let you understand how to install this software as it should be. Right now the PKGBUILD is not only bugged but clearly wrong about the installation process that it should follow. I would prefer to be the maintainer if you agree.

If someone can recommend a way to arrange this package so that Meteor can be available globally, I would be more than glad to update it. From what I can tell so far, one would have to modify the `meteor` script itself, since if it does not detect a `~/.meteor` directory, it will re-download it and install Meteor there.

I will be glad to maintain this package for Achlinux. I have never maintained any package so far but I helped debugging this package in the past, and in one week I will use Meteor everyday because it will be my job to code with Meteor. So I definitely need this package to work all the time and this would be the perfect use case for me to learn more about how to maintain an AUR package. Plus from what I already saw this is not the hardest package to maintain, so I guess it's a good one to start on.
