if files do not exist in the update and restore functions; such as search.json the copy errors out and the script exits.

recommend a "|| :" after the cp commands or a file exist check prior to cp.

Also, I just tested tor-browser-en on arguments with spaces, and it seems to have been fixed, which is what the bug report claims as well. Our script's help text should probably be modified accordingly.

I found a problem. The package's isn't passing the arguments to Browser/start-tor-browser right. This line is the problem:

cd $INSTALL_DIRECTORY/Browser && ./start-tor-browser --class Tor\ Browser "${args[@]}"

start-tor-browser stops processing switches at the first unknown switch, which is --class, which was meant for firefox. This fixes that problem:

cd $INSTALL_DIRECTORY/Browser && ./start-tor-browser "${args[@]}" --class Tor\ Browser

That got the tor switches working again, particularly --verbose / --debug. If for some reason --class needs to come before the user-specified firefox arguments, you'll still have a problem with my fix. I just tested it on a URL, though, and it seems to work ok.

I can't install the package.

Verifying source file signatures with gpg...
tor-browser-linux64-6.0.4_en-US.tar.xz ... FAILED
==> ERROR: One or more PGP signatures could not be verified!
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build tor-browser-en.

I ran the command "gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 2E1AC68ED40814E0"

gpg: key 4E2C6E8793298290: "Tor Browser Developers (signing key) <>" not changed
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg: unchanged: 1

I don't know what to do more. Can someone help me?

Thanks in advance

If building the package fails with the message "unknown public key", run a command "gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 2E1AC68ED40814E0" under the same user you build the package. Bump.

@n2i @owenthewizard
I have the same problem. Even after rebuilding trustdb.

Verifying source file signatures with gpg...
tor-browser-linux64-6.0.4_en-US.tar.xz ... FAILED (unknown public key 2E1AC68ED40814E0)

owen, can you please explain your last comment? I am Arch newbie. Thanks!

edit: I was able to fix this using command from @erkexzcx 's comment

@codingman: Have you try to re-build your gpg trustdb yet?

Make sure you import the tor project signing key, EF6E286DDA85EA2A4BA7DE684E2C6E8793298290

Hi, getting an "unknown public key" error when makepkg attempts to build the browser bundle.

Sorry for the backlog of feature requests, everyone. I'm not able to implement anything beyond package updates right now, but I'd welcome new co-maintainers. Thanks.
