Updated to 7.0.0. Also removed the version number from the application path (/opt/pylon7 -> /opt/pylon). If this causes any problems, let me know.

Updated to 6.3.0

Updated to 6.2.0. I checked that pylonviewer is working, but I don't have a Basler camera at the moment, so please report anything that may have broken here.

Basler seem to have changed the download link to ..ab_testing_1.., which suggests, that they may start offering different builds under the same link. If this starts to happen, the checksums will fail and we'll have to think something up.

Version 6.2.0 is out. Can we update?

Nice. Thanks for keeping this up-to-date!

My bad, messed something up while moving changes from my repo to AUR.

Will comment again, once it's fixed.

I have updated my local version to the current version 6.1.1 and would like to share the changes with this AUR version.

I could not reach the maintainer via email, so I will leave this comment here and submit a request to orphan the package if buckket does not answer within the next few days.

In the meantime, the new version will be hosted here:

Download link does not work, will this work: It is updated from 5.0.5 to 5.0.9 though

Awesome, thanks for testing :)

OK I can confirm your changed udev rule and stripped libraries work with my USB cameras.

de-vries commented on 2017-02-24 10:15 (UTC)

Oh, maybe more important: I changed the SUBSYSTEM=="usb" to SUBSYSTEMS="usb" (added an S) to make sure it has to match on the same level as ATTRS{idVendor}=="2676". I believe that is the correct behaviour, but I only have GigE cameras to test with, so I would appreciate your feedback :)

de-vries commented on 2017-02-24 10:07 (UTC)

I added a modified 69-basler-camera.rules (installed to /usr/lib/udev/rules.d). Could you verify if it works? Specifically, I removed the MODE:="0666" and the TAG+="udev-acl", since on Arch we only need TAG+="uaccess". I also added a pass of patchelf --shrink-rpath on the ELF files, since they contained a bunch on garbage RPATHs left over from whoever build the binaries. The joy of binary distributions :[

didi2002 commented on 2017-02-23 22:58 (UTC)

Ahoy! I just got an update to my own "pylon" package, great to see you have submitted this to the AUR! Would you mind installing the 69-basler-cameras.rules file to /etc/udev/rules.d/?
