This Package is up to date.
But the the last release is long time ago.
I have pushed a winusb-git package, which provides an up to date version.

I was receiving the following error when attempting to build:

/usr/bin/ld: warning:, needed by /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/5.3.0/../../../../lib/, not found (try using -rpath or -rpath-link)

Fixed it by grabbing 'webkitgtk2' from [extra]. This may need to be a dependency.

I haven't tried using WinUSB to create EFI images, but in order for it to properly create a BIOS image on an EFI machine, you need the following 2 patches:

winusb gives me the error “cannot move file to a subdirectory of itself”.

In script /usr/bin/winusb, it wants to rename "BOOT" to "boot", but FAT is case-insensitive and so it is the same directory. The fix is to change the line

if [ -d "$partitionMountPath/BOOT" ]; then mv "$partitionMountPath/BOOT" "$partitionMountPath/boot"; fi
if [ -d "$partitionMountPath/Boot" ]; then mv "$partitionMountPath/Boot" "$partitionMountPath/boot"; fi

to the following:

if [ -d "$partitionMountPath/BOOT" ]; then mv "$partitionMountPath/BOOT" "$partitionMountPath/boot_" && mv "$partitionMountPath/boot_" "$partitionMountPath/boot"; fi
if [ -d "$partitionMountPath/BOOT" ]; then mv "$partitionMountPath/Boot" "$partitionMountPath/Boot_" && mv "$partitionMountPath/Boot_" "$partitionMountPath/boot"; fi

Also, efibootmgr should be added as a dependency.

new tar.xz archive here:

just install with "pacman -U" or extract and install with "makepkg -s"

Here's an updated PKGBUILD with a working source file:

All I did was pick another mirror from and the hash still matches. It should work until the package is updated :)

Forget it...

The file is not a valid .tar.gz! They corrupted it!

Can this be useful as alternative source? I'll check it...

Frugalware updated the package...

They added this patch, too...
