The sha256 sum of the vmd.desktop is wrong, could you please update?

Could anyone explain to me why the request for vmd-bin?

dviktor commented on 2019-09-26 20:01

Could you please rename this package to vmd-bin?

@materia the MD5 looks ok. Make sure you're using vmd-1.9.4a31.bin.LINUXAMD64-CUDA9-OptiX600-RTX-OSPRay170.opengl.tar.gz.

@materia I will take a look today.

I'm no expert, but I believe the md5sum doesn't match. Could someone confirm it's not just me?

Please, rename to vmd-bin or switch to build from source.

dviktor commented on 2019-04-10 16:18

Can you add application entry and icon, please? Something like that:

install -Dm644 ${srcdir}/vmd.desktop ${pkgdir}/usr/share/applications/vmd.desktop
install -Dm644 ${srcdir}/vmd.svg ${pkgdir}/usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/vmd.svg

You can get icon and desktop entry here (

@itsagoodbrain I subscribe to the Mathematica comments (, and they don't get many "no file found" complaints compared to the Mathematica bundle weirdness. I would be ok with adding an xdg-utils dependency, but is there a reliable way of detecting the download location, as opposed to looking in ~/Downloads? I saw your previous comment about AUR automation and there are several packages I update by hand, so you can imagine my stance.

It may be more trouble than it's worth. But thoughts on adding something to help people along in some pre-install/update scripting? xdg-open "<>" for example and moving the file when that is finished from the download folder shouldn't be too hard. But I'm not sure how general it is and if it's worth it.
