I can't believe what I'm reading. The developer (@thefanclub) is threating @pedro00dk for creating a build file and so helping everyone to use this software.

@thefanclub, you are doing it wrong. It's fine if you don't want to work your own build file for Arch Linux distributions. It's also fine if you don't want to help to those that are doing this selflessly job. But asking to remove a build file... and presenting legal reasons... come on... this is totally absurd and destructive, even for yourself.

Manjaro is actually the second most used Linux distribution (and it is an Arch Linux based distro). With this kind of demands like requiring to delete a build file you are loosing users. And most important: you are sending a very negative message and people like me will avoid your company when there are alternatives (and for your software, there are).

I hope @thefanclub finds the time to think about this again. But if your company was mine sure I won't be biting the hand that feeds me. I already bought an Insync license and not chosing overGrive among other things was because Insync has a nice AUR build file that I can use with Manjaro and Arch Linux.

@thefanclub: You have zero packages published right now. Publish a new package for your software, contribute fixing the problems of stop threating us. As I see it these are your 3 best options.

@pedro00dk: Thank you for your effort, your support when bugs appear and for your many quick messages. Me, as a user, really appreciate your work.

AUR is not storing your copyrighted work.

I find this strange: normally people are happy (specially for a product with a price) that the product is available on AUR and a lot of times the maintainer is the same as the copyright owner.

If I were you I would take care of the (free) remarks and collaborate to improve your products with AUR users, many of which are working in the field of software production.

As a side note, the problem is not in this AUR package, installation of the official one produces the same results

@pedro00dk - You have no right or permission to publish our copyrighted work. Remove this AUR and Git Repo.

Hi, thefanclub guys, as I said before, it is for my own use, but anyone is free to do so. The reality is that not many of the packages in the AUR are in fact supported by their developers. Moreover, I'm not infringing on the AUR rules in, as this package is merely a "build script" based on the original one, your software is not being modified by any means. And, any package is "potentially dangerous" in the AUR, the users know that and they should check the build files, as you should too. If you are willing to publish your package here, I will give you the repository ownership, otherwise, I will continue publishing the package.

We are the creators of overGrive. WE DO NOT SUPPORT this AUR version. It is an un-authorised version that could be potentially dangerous to users. Refer to the original downloads on our website For Arch / Manjaro installation instructions see : For overGrive support contact us at

now i use the new 3.3.3 appimage version. so it works

pedro00dk commented on 2019-11-14 22:26

Guys, I initially just packaged this software for my own use, because I don't like the way it was done with the original package ( , .tar.xz available).

Moreover, besides the missing libraries (GObject), I also have google API syncing and KEY ahtentication problems with the package, I even tested the original package and it has the same problems. However (for me), these are intermittent problems, sometimes after restarting, everything works again.

I am not related by any means with the developers of the original package, therefore, I cannot change the code or help with software related bugs.

If you find a bug related to the package, please clone the package and try to fix by yourself and leave here a comment about the problem and how you fixed it, then I will check that and update the package, you can help even more if you leave a pull request at . It is hard for me to replicate your bugs due to system setup and communication through comments in this post.

blackhole commented on 2019-11-14 21:52

I have now the same type of problems, even starting it with a delay.

This is the worst application I've ever seen on linux (maybe because this is the only one app that I had pay for it). At least once a month, I am forced to renew the Google authorization process, because overgrive forgets the API key. Sometimes application starts during login to my account, sometimes not. Once in a while requires repating the whole "first run" configuration. Today, after update Python3 to the latest version, overgrive completely doesn't work and throws exception...

File "/opt/thefanclub/overgrive/overgrive", line 5 m Z l ^ SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Terrible, just terrible...
