Thanks for your response !

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

I mentioned you in commit message:

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 !

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

What do you mean? There is already a .desktop file that should appear in the applications menu of your desktop environment (if you use one).

might be easier to run while having some bin or .desktop :)
