Before running makepkg, you must do this (as normal user):

$ gpg --auto-key-locate nodefault,wkd --locate-keys

If you want to update tor-browser from AUR without AUR helpers you can run in a terminal:

$ tor-browser -u

I have increased the $pkgrel variable.

The package can be rebuilt without re-downloading the sources if you've built it before. I just did it by deleting the old tor-browser-10.0.15-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst and running makepkg -si, and it only takes a few seconds. makepkg and all AUR helpers I know of do this by default, so I don't think updating the pkgrel would be placing much of a burden on anyone.

Not being able to remove mozilla-common from your system when it's been removed from the repositories won't keep you from using the software, but it is a bit of a problem in itself.

I am not sure any change to pkgrel or epoch is necessary in this case. If a user has tor-browser already installed then they have no problems. If instead they were unable to install tor-browser earlier, now they will be able to install it. But if I increase pkgrel or epoch I will force an update on all the users for which tor-browser works just fine. It is a heavy package, I am not sure that would be the right thing to do.

@Spixmaster That's wrong: that's what pkgrel is meant for. epoch should only been used when pacman thinks the version number is decreased (e.g., because of the use of alphabetical characters), but where the version actually is increased.

@class101 @grufo For circumstances in which an Update is necessary withouth changing the version itself, epoch= should be used.

Edit: Looks like 10.0.15-1 has been fixed without bumping pkgrel (bad practice imo), If you installed the buggy 10.0.15-1, to fix, unininstall tor-browser, manually delete the directory tor-browser from the cache of your favorite aur helper, (.cache/yay/ .cache/paru/ etc...) and reinstall tor-browser

Yeah running fine is one thing but not all.

But I think indeed it is no more used (or part of an optional feature in tor maybe?), technically, mozilla-common is really tiny, it is just exporting the following variable MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH

export MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH="/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins"

And on my system, /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins does not exists with tor-browser installed.

I doesn't seem to be necessary any more. I removed mozilla-common from the PKGBUILD depends, and it builds and runs fine.

class101 commented on 2021-04-16 10:42

To fix extra/mozilla-common deleted from the extra repository

pacman -U

Unfortunately, pushing mozilla-common 1.4-6 at aur/mozilla-common is currently rejected :

remote: error: package already provided by [extra]: mozilla-common        
remote: error: hook declined to update refs/heads/master

Maybe the package is no more necessary ? I haven't checked, a workaround would be to create it under a different name like aur/mozilla-common-aur but this would be ugly, because every dependent app will still break until patched.

Anyway, a backup of the sources of the deleted extra/mozilla-common is available here

Build of 10.0.15-1 fails due to missing dependency mozilla-common. It's not in official repositories or AUR.

mackilanu commented on 2021-03-31 11:47

@randomguy343 That is an issue with your AUR helper and not this package.
