FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (read before flagging or commenting!)

  • There is a new version out, why is the package not updated?

Please check this page before flagging as out-of-date. If there is no new version on that page, it's not yet released. A tag on Github is NOT a release! If you can see the new version on the updates page but the AUR package is still not updated, flag it and give it time. It's usually done within a day or two.

  • Why is $X a dependency? I don't like it.

Just because $X is not required to open the app, doesn't mean there is nothing that depends on it. Always search the comment history on AUR to see if that dependency has been previously discussed before writing your own comment. Still nothing? Then use namcap to make sure it's really not needed. If namcap doesn't complain, please leave a comment here and I'll investigate.

  • Something is broken with the app, where do I report it?

The problem might be a packaging issue (wrong paths, dependencies, icons etc), so please write a comment here first. If you don't get a reply, or if someone says it's an upstream issue, you can report it on Github.

  • I have a problem with the package or the program itself, can I email you?

No. You won't get a reply. Leave a comment here instead and be patient.

  • What happened to visual-studio-code?

It got renamed with a -bin suffix. If you have the original package installed, you will be prompted to delete it when you install this package for the first time.

Please change the description in PKGBUILD to:

pkgdesc="Visual Studio Code (vscode): Editor for building and debugging modern web and cloud applications (official binary version)"

This will make searching way easier. Thanks.

@daveshaheen: Thank you for your trick!

Another option instead of modifying /etc/makepkg.conf is to create a ~/.curlrc file with the line --http1.1

It fails when it tries to download v 1.28.0 from (I'm using pacaur)

However, I could manually download the tar.gz from the above link, insert it on the pacaur cache folder, and the installation was successfully.

@tavuntu, It's the lines starting with http::/usr/bin/curl and https::/usr/bin/curl in the DLAGENTS array in /etc/makepkg.conf.

tavuntu commented on 2018-10-11 03:16

@dcelasun which line do I add that flag in?

dcelasun commented on 2018-10-09 06:57

@Chipsterjulien as a temporary workaround, you can edit DLAGENTS in /etc/makepkg.conf and add --http1.1 to the curl command.

@ghotrix, that's a network on your end. I can download the tarball just fine.
