Figured out how to properly pass paths and associate the binary with the mimes to get it to work from both the command line ① and file manager context menus ②:

① In the script, change the line to:

wine "$HOME"/.mp3directcut/mp3DirectCut.exe $(winepath -w "$@")

② Register it as associated program in Wine: Create this reg and import it with regedit (while it works manually via the GUI, there's also supposed to be -C file.reg, but it's marked as "unimplemented" in the man page):

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
@="mp3DirectCut MP3 File"




@="\"Z:\\usr\\share\\mp3directcut\\mp3DirectCut.exe\" \"%1\""

Then alter the mp3directcut.desktop to:

[Desktop Entry]
Comment=fast and extensive audio editor and recorder for compressed mp3.
Exec=env WINEPREFIX="/home/user/.wine" /usr/bin/wine start /ProgIDOpen mp3DirectCut.mp3 %f
GenericName=fast mp3 audio editor

(The env WINEPREFIX=… is copied from Wine's auto-generated files, only required if it doesn't run in the default one — so not really required for this package — and needs to be changed ofc. text/plain is for mpd project files.)

Finally, run update-desktop-database for good measure.

Download location is actually correct, but version has been bumped and previous version is no longer valid.

Edit the PKGBUILD to bump pkgver to 2.25 and _downver to 225... as well as substituting in the new md5 checksum (872f3923af1982fc39a18d724ffd5904) and it works perfectly.

All of the above info (including md5 checksum) is available here:

The source file location is not longer available. I have a workaround that seems to work, for now.

-- begin paste -- curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found ==> ERROR: Failure while downloading Aborting... -- end paste --

I substituted instead, in Pamac ... Build files ... PKGBUILD ...:

... for .

The installation seemed to proceed, fine.

Can you add "wine" as a dependency? It is needed to run the software.

I dont know, how long it will be working.

Tried to install this packages from aur and failed. The downloadlink does not exist any more.

My workaround:
1) Download installer from one of the host listed here:
2) Extract the aur packages and create a src folder in the extracted one
3) Move all files except the PKGBUILD into the src folder
4) Run the downloaded installer (mp3DC$Version.exe) using wine and extract the contents into the src folder
5) run from the folder which contains the the PKGBUILD makepg -s (maybe the checksumcheck fails which can be bypassed with --skipinteg)
6) and install using pacman
