How can I install offline tor package ?

Please do not mess around with gpg-keyrings of the users with bloody scripting. AUR-Helper should just implement a semiautomatic function for this.

Calling gpg from the build script would be a careless hack at best. makepkg should have better error messages and AUR should recognize the validpgpkeys value and give clear instructions when it's non-empty. Ideally every package should be using validpgpkeys and every user should know how to handle it.

@jugs @itsme, I definitely think it's a bad idea to do that. I don't want a script adding keys to my keyring, that should be an action I do deliberately myself.

I'm not sure if we should automate the key retrieval, what do you think @yar?

itsme commented on 2016-11-15 17:30

please, add 'gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 2E1AC68ED40814E0' to PKGBUILD

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.

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.
