@Universebenzene - Yes, I was thinking at this solution too. I updated the package with this, thanks !

Is it OK to rename the source in PKGBUILD? Like this:


This can solve the md5 problem caused by some AUR helpers. And you can rename it back to topcat-full.jar in the package() phase.

If you are using yay, the cache is in ~/.cache/yay/topcat

could not find it in the cache. (pacmann)

downloaded and verified md5 manually - it is correct. still install doesn't run through. :(

@vandalt - Now using the icon you mentioned, thanks!

Hmm, are you using yay ? I'm seeing the same error locally with yay, because it keeps a cache of downloaded files, and for topcat the file is always the same (topcat-full.jar) so yay does not download the new version. After removing its cache I can install the package, which confirms that the md5sum is correct. Not sure what to do about this.

Validating source files with md5sums... topcat-full.jar ... FAILED

doesnt install since the md5 seems to be wrong (or download). could not find actually the official md5's so I could not update the build script.

Thank you ! Also, I recently realized that the icon from the website is available in SVG format on Github: I'm mentioning it here just in case you are interested in updating the packaged one. I'm currently using this as my topcat desktop icon and it works well.

It seems not possible to have an HTTP link for a specific version so I used the generic link but this will break when a new version is released.
