@harryyoud Thanks for your suggestions, I applied a mix of it to display a correct version string.

In fact, if you want to keep with the GitHub tarballs, this snippet works well too:

grep 'filter=version' .gitattributes | cut -d' ' -f1 | while read file; do
        sed -i "s/@@WOEUSB_VERSION@@/${pkgver}/" $file

Version needs bumping to 3.3.1

To set the version in the files (and therefore the man pages and version flags), the PKGBUILD needs to download the sources with git (not a tarball), and run this snippet in prepare:

git config --local include.path $(pwd)/.gitconfig
rm .git/index
git checkout HEAD .

Sources line:

@Synthead Compiles fine here, besides, maybe you should check existing dependencies before posting.

Not sure if this is a woeusb issue or a packaging issue:

Please add wxgtk2 as a dependency.

checking for wx-config... no
configure: error: 
                    wxWidgets must be installed on your system.

                    Please check that wx-config is in path, the directory
                    where wxWidgets libraries are installed (returned by
                    'wx-config --libs' or 'wx-config --static --libs' command)
                    is in LD_LIBRARY_PATH or equivalent variable and
                    wxWidgets version is 2.8.4 or above.

@zerodef What is it that you are implying?

There's a patch for the /usr/sbin/woeusb: line 1676: echo: write error: Invalid argument problem linked to at

Although a commit was pushed upstream a month ago with a patch to fix this, and an update to the PKGBUILD to include it, this was never pushed to the AUR. When doing so, pkgrel needs to be updated to 2. The PKGBUILD was modified on github adding the patch but left pkgrel as 1.
