@labaman, No, a broken package is one that can't compile, not whether a new one is available or not. His response was correct.

labaman commented on 2023-11-05 15:30 (UTC)

@ricwu It's not a broken package, it's just that a new version has been released. If you notice that a new version has been released, it is better to use the " Out of date " flag

The package is currently broken. Changing the following fixed it for me:

In any case, the license type changes will be made in PKGBUILD on the next package update. Thank you all.

@labaman, I think it best this noise stays away from this AUR package, thanks though. >_>

rad4day commented on 2023-09-12 10:34 (UTC)

The license should probably be changed to LICENSE=('custom') and the EULA file should be packaged as /usr/share/licenses/xp-pen-tablet/LICENSE, if I read correctly.

This patch should work. (funnily enough git am, etc die at this patch. patch -p1 works though o.O)

So if at the next update, I change the license to "custom ELUA" - will everyone be happy?

rad4day commented on 2023-09-12 09:12 (UTC)

Let me chime in on this, as I made that change to the license entry. The version shipped at that time included the file: xp-pen-pentablet- and not the usr/lib/pentablet/doc/EULA file the current version has.

So they seem to have “changed” the license sometime in between :/

@OdinVex, @alexandria this license type was specified in the package originally (before I started maintaining it). Seeing the current "noise" in the comments on this issue, I sent a request to xp-pen support. So far I haven't heard anything back. As soon as I get a response - in the next package updates the license type will be fixed according to xp-pen's response. For those who find this aspect critical, you can send parallel requests to xp-pen support - if you get an answer faster, please forward the support response to me.

OdinVex commented on 2023-09-11 17:41 (UTC)

@labaman, alexandria is correct, this is not LGPL in any way. It's closed-source and simply links to Qt.
