@dreieck Thank you. Added a pkgdesc and cleaned up the options.

I see you have the !strip option set.

Is it really needed?

I see if it gets removed, the size of the backage decreases slightly by 4.45M (version 3.7.5).

can you add a more descriptive $pkgdesc, please? e.g.

A cross-platform desktop application for downloading and managing your Audible audiobooks.

Regards and
thanks for maintaining.

Another application where the developer hates on Linux, the best option now is to use the AppImage, if like me you find this useful, are concerned about keeping apps updated and secure, or are fed up with ignoring the update nag... the update/install script hasn't worked for quite a while. The latest versions are no longer served from GitHub as per the PKGBUILD, they're now on the OpenAudible authors own website. Hash sums are not published.

AppImage: Deb:

Funnily (or not) enough the outdated 3.3 version is still available on GitHub, for now at least.

@Moo-Crumpus It should be fixed in the current beta. See:

I don't want to see OpenAudible as Folder in my user's directory. Unfortunately it calls for this location, even if you want it to use ~/.Openaudible. Just because ~/OpenAudible is where it stores the config to use ~/.OpenAudible. Stupid Catch22.

@kurganme: Thanks. Added.

Please add desktop-file-utils in the depends list. Otherwise you have this error:

==> Entering fakeroot environment...
==> Starting package()...
/home/user/.cache/yay/openaudible-bin/PKGBUILD: line 29: desktop-file-install: command not found
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().
Error making: openaudible-bin
