Please swap i686 and x86_64 dependencies. The .install file is not needed anymore, superseded by pacman hooks.

Some changes related to the mime-icons, by editing the PKGBUILD file it is possible to avoid conflicts with FreeOffice and/or choose generic icons for various Softmaker documents.

Revision 702 now released.

The naming of the applications is in keeping with the naming by Softmaker's install script. However, I have modified it, as there is no obvious reason to name the software the way it is named in that script.

Thanks for this package, seems to work well. Any reason why presentations-2012.desktop has 'Name=SoftMaker Presentations 2012' rather than 'Name=Presentations 2012', in keeping with the Names in the textmaker-2012.desktop and planmaker-2012.desktop files? Revision 698 has now been released.

Hi all, due to changing jobs I am no longer using Arch and thus I am unfortunately unable to maintain the package. Please do not ask me to update it, I don't want to release anything I haven't been able to test on Arch myself. I hope someone else will adopt the package. Thanks for your understanding. Best wishes, cconrad

Many thanks for creating this package. Have just purchased an upgrade to 2012 Linux version and your package worked beautifully.
