The sabnzbd 3.0.0 release is python3, yay! I've also moved the install from /opt to /usr/lib/sabnzbd and /var/lib/sabnzbd. The .install file should move things around as needed, but please post if it doesn't.

Done. Hopefully it is ok now.

I think it's better to start sabnzbd only when you want to use it instead of having it always running for the obvious reason that you don't always download something.

Thanks to look at it !

Ah, I was looking at a wrong version it seems. Anyway, I will see if I can make a hybrid that also works to start sabnzbd.

That being said, justin8 is right, the default procedure would be to start it as a service.

Looks like he's right..

Either way, sab on linux is designed to be run as a service, which is included. I believe the .desktop is only there for file-association. so you can double click an nzb in nautilus/thunar/etc and have it add to sab. I'm not sure if there is a way to mark an application for that and not show up in applications menus otherwise though.

I don't know what happen but this is the content of sabnzbd.desktop and as you can see it call :

[Desktop Entry]
GenericName=Binary Newsreader
Exec=sh /opt/sabnzbd/ %u

I'm on Manjaro KDE and I can't launch sabnzbd from the menu, only from the command line "sabnzbd".

I don't understand what you mean. sabnzbd.desktop doesn't call at all. is used to register the .nzb extension so that an nzb can be loaded. For this, sabnzbd needs to be running. You can use `systemctl start sabnzbd` to start sabnzbd.

"sabnzbd.desktop" launch "" but that doesn't work (Manjaro). sabnzbd doesn't start.

If I simply start sabnzbd from a terminal with "sabnzbd", sabnzbd start and works.

Why are you using this to launch sabnzbd ?

. /etc/conf.d/sabnzbd
curl -s -F apikey="$API_KEY" -F mode="addfile" -F name=@"$1" $URL/sabnzbd/api &> /dev/null

Your PKGBUILD is at 0.7.20-2, but your .SRCINFO is at 0.7.20-1. Please fix it.

Thank you, that work now ;)

I heard some stories that the people of Sourceforge are injecting spyware into their packages. I don't have the old version so I cannot verify if this is the case here. So yeah, let's switch to github.
