Thank you @wandering-planet ! I hadn't noticed that the domain has been changed.

If the URL Upstream is supposed to lead to the official website, it should be whalebird.social, not whalebird.org.

Thanks for your response !

Thanks Kr1ss, I fixed that (and updated the package to 3.1.0).

I mentioned you in commit message: https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/commit/PKGBUILD?h=whalebird-bin&id=d4fca2c343ae

Hey @ariasuni, thx a lot for packing this software for the AUR !

The package installs some rpm-specific metadata inside /usr/lib/.build-id, which is probably not intended for an Arch package. I would therefore suggest to exclude copying the (otherwise empty) $srcdir/usr/lib folder to the $pkgdir, e.g. similar like :

diff -u old/PKGBUILD new/PKGBUILD
--- old/PKGBUILD    2020-01-09 15:58:12.290786915 +0100
+++ new/PKGBUILD    2020-01-09 16:07:14.010774578 +0100
@@ -13,7 +13,8 @@

 package() {
-  cp -R opt/ usr/ "$pkgdir"
-  mkdir "$pkgdir/usr/bin"
+  mkdir -p "$pkgdir/usr/bin"
+  cp -R opt "$pkgdir/"
+  cp -R usr/share "$pkgdir/usr/"
   ln -s /opt/Whalebird/whalebird "$pkgdir/usr/bin/whalebird"
 }

Cheers !

Works thank you!

ariasuni commented on 2019-05-27 13:04 (UTC)

It should be fixed now, thanks for reporting!

Sorry, I stupidly broke the PKGBUILD when changing the URL. It’s fixed now.

@ariasuni Thanks for maintaining this, I noticed that the download url on the whalebird site is not always updated, maybe beter to use the Github Releases URL https://github.com/h3poteto/whalebird-desktop/releases
