This is for those unfamiliar how Arch and Pamac works: Pamac is the name of your "Add/Remove Software" program. When downloading a package from AUR, Pamac will clone the repository and create a directory with the source code in it. You can find/set the directory under the "Preferences" tab in Pamac (/var/tmp is default). For VMD - due license requirements from UIC, you must manually dl VMD as a tar.gz and then move it to the the vmd (or vmd-src) directory under /var/tmp. I hope this helps another muggle what don't compile softwares every day.

If you download the current latest (as of the time of this comment) tar.gz from the VMD page, you should change the pkgver variable content to pkgver=1.9.4a55, on the PKGBUILD file.

Other than that, the archive name might be different, in that case it will throw the error about not finding it on the build dir. So, I just copied that name and renamed the archive I downloaded.

We just installed vmd in a fresh system. Running vmd gave segmentation fault until installed more package (xf86-video-intel xorg xorg-init fltk glade), not sure which one make it work. It seems there is a missing dependency.

@alexi But from where to download? The link above doesn't work also.

Darnock, you have to download yourself and put it in the PKGBUILD folder.

Can not update vmd 1.9.4a51-2:

ERROR: vmd-1.9.4a51.bin.LINUXAMD64-CUDA102-OptiX650-OSPRay185.opengl.tar.gz is not a URL and I did not find it in the source directory.

It seems the link for .tar.gz is broken, so sources can't be downloaded.

Hi @berquist, thanks for this package!

I just wanted to let you know that vmd 1.9.4a38 is no longer available from the VMD website (at least I couldn't find it). It looks like they updated it on 29/05/2020 to 1.9.4a43.

I managed to tweak this package and have it install for me successfully, but I thought I ought to let you know. The new archive file is called vmd-1.9.4a43.bin.LINUXAMD64-CUDA102-OptiX650-OSPRay185.opengl.tar.gz

I installed it by editing the archive name in this package and updating the checksum.

Please update this package when you can.
