Ok! thanks for explaining. I just asked because I didn't see it discussed anywhere.

Indeed rbuchberger, but the original .exe file doesn't exist anymore and we was having issues with so we decided to store the exe in the repository and do not allow pull request changing the sha signature or the exe file. But if you have a proposal, please open a pull request.

Sorry to be suspicious, but where did that .exe file come from? It's a little weird to pull a compiled binary from someone's github.

I've noticed that this PKGBUILD will hang waiting for user input if the lha commands have already extracted their contents as part of a previous run. I'd recommend adding f to the options.

Done ( :

Edit: sorry, it took a while. I'm not really familiar with how GitHub works

@ryshglene can you please create a pull request to the aur branch on

I've made these changes to the PKGBUILD:

And now it works for both lha and lhasa. Please update it, if you get the same results.

@mijailr @nightuser

I think I might know what's going on -- when I used lha from the AUR, the filenames were uppercase. When I replaced it with lhasa from Community, the filenames were lowercase.

If there is a flag recognized by both lha and lhasa that makes the command case-insensitive, adding that flag should fix this issue. If not then either some helper commands to do a case-insensitive grep of the output of lha l will need to be piped or parameterized to allow both to work, or lha will need to be removed as a dependency and entirely replaced with lhasa.
