Hi guys, terribly sorry for the mis-haps. Indeed, this was valid as pdfsam all along, and there was some confusion along the way.

ChaosKid42, you'll wanna re-adopt the package as I either don't know how computers work or I'm unable to add you as the main maintainer.

Sorry again for the confusion, guys!

As Spotlightkid pointed out, you might want to build this from source.

Comment from Kr1ss:

Since this is a Java application, I think this package (pdfsam-bin) should be merged into pdfsam, not the other way around.

Excerpt from the AUR submission guide (the 5th bullet point) :

Packages that use prebuilt deliverables, when the sources are available, must use the -bin suffix. An exception to this is with Java.

Hi @ChaosKid42, thank you for packaging this app !

This package should be called pdfsam-bin. It would be possible to build pdfsam from source, though:

@elovin. So unzip package should be in the dependencies list (I know, I should have it already, but then I know I haven't... because I use 7z)

@mercutio Tanks for spotting this. Fixed in newest release.

There's a typo in the gendesk command: It should say --pkgdesc="${pkgdesc}" instead of --pkgdesc="${pkgdesk}"

I had to change the PKGBUILD script to use unzip insted of bsdtar to decompress the zip archive.

source=("https://github.com/torakiki/${pkgname}/releases/download/v${pkgver}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}-linux.zip"
        "pdfsam")
noextract=("${pkgname}-${pkgver}-linux.zip")

prepare() {

    # use unzip as opposed to bsdtar 
  unzip "${pkgname}-${pkgver}-linux.zip" -d "${pkgname}-${pkgver}-linux"

  # create *.desktop file
  gendesk -f -n \
