This is failing to install for me when trying to download the .tar.gz file. It looks like curl isn't trusting the HTTPS cert for reasons I don't fully understand (chromium does trust it):

curl -vvv
*   Trying
* Connected to ( port 443 (#0)
* ALPN, offering h2
* ALPN, offering http/1.1
*  CAfile: /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt
*  CApath: none
* TLSv1.3 (OUT), TLS handshake, Client hello (1):
* TLSv1.3 (IN), TLS handshake, Server hello (2):
* TLSv1.3 (IN), TLS handshake, Encrypted Extensions (8):
* TLSv1.3 (IN), TLS handshake, Certificate (11):
* TLSv1.3 (OUT), TLS alert, unknown CA (560):
* SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate
* Closing connection 0
curl: (60) SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate
More details here:

curl failed to verify the legitimacy of the server and therefore could not
establish a secure connection to it. To learn more about this situation and
how to fix it, please visit the web page mentioned above.

Some Googling leads to believe that this is a misconfiguration on related to an incomplete certificate chain. Note the "B" level score on

I worked around this by adding this (dangerous!) line to the top of the PKGBUILD file:

DLAGENTS=("https::/usr/bin/curl -k -o %o %u")

Conflicts with package libextractor:
Both provide the file /usr/bin/extract.

Please update conflicts entry.

Fixed, the packaging function was messed up! :P You were doing nothing wrong.

1.2.2-1's not working for me (yaourt). I can build it but I'm not able to run it. What am I doing wrong?
