Noticed that the script was messing up the file name in the source. It totally broke the package. Fixed it.

  1. I wasn't aware of the English installation guide. It's possible that the link to the Linux version is not mentioned because the English page might not be as up-to-date as the Russian one. I'll update the upstream link to the English one once they add the Linux version there.

  2. Currently, you can only download the Linux version through a Yandex.Disk (you can find link in the Russian installation instructions). Unfortunately, you can't directly download the package via HTTP through this link. To obtain a direct link, you need to use the Yandex Public API. This direct link is used in the PKGBUILD file. The link is temporary, so I use a cron job to keep it updated in the PKGBUILD (you can see this in the change history). It's a bit of a hack, but it works.

Hi. Maybe you have some answers I'm unable to find online. Do you know why the Linux version is not mentioned on the english side of the installation instruction, but on the russian one?

Why this links to a, what feels like a, 3rd party upload - file hosting solution?

This feels a bit shady tbh.
