Small headsup: the build failed for me when using yay and paru, but worked when doing it the old-fashion way of

git clone
cd sws
makepkg -si

Btw: missing an -s there in the symlinking. Should be

sudo ln -s /opt/REAPER/UserPlugins/ ~/.config/REAPER/UserPlugins/

, not

sudo ln /opt/REAPER/UserPlugins/ ~/.config/REAPER/UserPlugins/

To fix this package you can create a symbolic link from the installation directory to the proper place in your config folder:

sudo ln /opt/REAPER/UserPlugins/ ~/.config/REAPER/UserPlugins/

It can be installed anywhere on the disk. By default SWS looks for the Grooves directory at the root of the user's or portable install's resource directory. This is where the Windows installer puts it. The macOS disk image tells users to drag it if/where they wish.

I followed your suggestions, thanks for contributing!

Where should FingersExtras/Grooves be placed? Is there any kind of default directory sws looks for it?

For distro packages I would suggest linking SWS against Arch's taglib rather than having it build its own static copy. php-gd is not required (nor used) for building SWS.

EDIT: Also should go into the user resource directory's Scripts folder rather than UserPlugins.
EDIT 2: It might be useful to include the groove files (the FingersExtras/Grooves directory) into the package.

Thanks linos! I saved the compiled version just in case.

I changed the webhost to a nonfree one I already pay for, so it should be working again. Thanks for your comments. I have no future plans and don't think it's necessary to share binary builds here.

"Failure while downloading" +1

Just reloaded my system now I can't install this package. It would be great to have a bin version so this doesn't happen.

"Failure while downloading"

Looks like that URL is dead.
