I am pretty sure. By fresh install, I installed Arch on this new machine on Friday. It looks as though the Version is (newer?) different; I checked that the PKGBUILD matched.

parnmatt, that's strange. Are you completely sure you have installed pentadactyl-git with the latest PKGBUILD? I'm typing this with a working pentadactyl plugin on Firefox 42.0-2, which is the latest version available on Arch.

What is the output of `pacman -Qi firefox` and `pacman -Qi pentadactyl-git` on your machine?

parnmatt commented on 2015-11-23 14:18

That was the case I have had previously, however it is not the case here I'm afraid:

parnmatt, it should only say the extension is not verified, but still let you use it

parnmatt commented on 2015-11-23 13:54

That's grand news, however with a fresh build it is saying it is not compatable with FF 42.0 even though max version has been set to 44 .

AsmundEr commented on 2015-11-04 17:11

(Read in my best James May impression)
Good news! The new Dacia^H^H^H^H^H Firefox feature which requires package signing has been deferred to FF 44 [1]. Pentadactyl-git should continue working on 42 and 43. I will bump the MaxVersion fix later today.

Can confirm, successful fix, with an apt commit message. Strange indeed.
Cheers for the swift response @AsmundEr.

AsmundEr commented on 2015-10-01 12:32

Updated now.

AsmundEr commented on 2015-10-01 12:27

Ah, I can confirm this. Thanks for the heads up. Bumping the MaxVersion to 42 fixes the problem, I'm submitting an updated PKGBUILD now.

41.1.0-1 is fine, it's the new 41.0.1-1 that isn't for me
