That's actually the exact same thing the package maintainer does, so it's a perfect fix. :)

Having that said, the main problem here is that cockos don't announce when new developer versions are ready on the landoleet site, nor do they always follow the same versioning scheme. And sometimes they update several times a day, so it's kind of hard for our package maintainer to stay on top of it given how unpredictable the changes over at landoleet are.

So personally I've just made a habit of checking before upgrading this package to make sure I get the right filename/version number. That way it never fails. :)

Until this gets updated, a quick fix:

1. Download "pre11_linux_x86_64.tar.xz" from
2. Use md5sum on the file and copy the result.
3. In the PKGBUILD, Replace the first hash with the one you copied.

I'm not sure if this is a good way to do things, but it worked for me.

up to pre6

Here, I change it to "pkgver=5.65pre5" to get it work.

But, it does not work well under ratpoison...

pkgver=5.51rc2 needed to be pkgver=5.51rc2a in the PKGBUILD for it to start downlaoding for me.

thanx! :)

The lsb-release make dep can be removed, it's no longer needed.

jhernberg commented on 2017-09-02 16:35

That's because there was a detour in versioning where they took it out of rc status for a couple of releases. Now they are back on the normal rc. Nothing to worry about :)

hey lately I haven't been getting updates when using pamac but I've noticed Reaper upgrades.
The last one I received after running was version 5.50repre4.

I just ran yaourt -S reaper and no issues building but before installing, I received this warning:

loading packages...
warning: downgrading package reaper (5.50repre4-1 => 5.50rc21-2)
resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...

so am I really downgrading here? if so, why go from repre4 to rc21?

Installing via Pamac 5.1.0-1 results in faulty *.desktop files that point to /tmp/pamac-build-{{user}}/reaper/pkg/reaper/usr/lib//REAPER/. makepkg does fine, so it's probably some problem with pamac and $pkgdir. Quick fix after install:
sudo sed -i "s#/tmp/pamac-build-$USER/reaper/pkg/reaper/usr/lib/#/usr/lib#" -- /usr/share/applications/cockos-reaper*.desktop
