Hi,
sorry I never cared about it from the beginning.
I did a simple test and the entry worked worked.
Thank you so much for your help... how can I say "no" to such nice request ;-)

Cheers

Hi.
Can you please add a .desktop file in /usr/share/applications/scid.desktop ? For a menu entry...
Image file (from scid homepage):
http://a.fsdn.com/con/icons/sc/scid%40sf.net/scid.png # from http://sourceforge.net/projects/scid/
# or
# http://scid.sourceforge.net/img/icon.gif # from http://scid.sourceforge.net
Desktop file:

[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Name=Scid
Comment=A Free Chess Database Application
Exec=(/usr/bin/)scid
Icon=(/usr/share/scid/)scid.png
Categories=Game;BoardGame;
Type=Application
Terminal=false
StartupNotify=false

# scid.png goes to /usr/share/pixmaps to recognize as "Icon=scid.png" otherwise the full path must be specified "Icon=/usr/share/scid/scid.png"
# scid is already in $PATH so specifying the full path in "Exec=/usr/bin/scid" is not necessary just "Exec=scid"

Hello all,
I just adopted this great package... the old PKGBUILD contained very old syntax and a somehow not so straightforward/clean installation procedure.
I already rewrote the PKGBUILD from scratch therefore I increased the release version to reflect the fact that now it is a different PKGBUILD from a different maintainer.
In principle this package *SHOULD* work pretty much the same as the previous release (4.3-1) so if you do not feel like updating it feel free to skip this one or give it a go and please report back if you encounter any issues and I gladly will do my best to sort them out :D

Enjoy and cheers,

Hello all,
I just adopted this great package... the compilation worked very nice but the PKGBUILD contained very old syntax and a somehow not so straightforward installation procedure.
I already updated the PKGBUILD without increasing the release version. I do not want to bump unnecessary rebuilds.

Enjoy and cheers,

New Scid version!

This is a quick fix. I will check in the following days for errors in PDGBUILD.
Any suggestions are welcomed!

Scid's webpage address isn't working. I think it should be updated to http://scid.sourceforge.net/ :)
