Thanks. Sorry, I missed the note in the changelog.

Thanks for the explanation @fusion809. I only want to point out that Zotero developers eventually make some fixes only for Mac. Then, they make a new version exclusive for that platform. This practice is not intuitive or habitual, and leads to this conundrum. Thus, I beg to check the changelog ( before notifying if the package is out-of-date.

@warwickmm Please only flag this package as out of date when it's actually out of date. If you check the changelog you linked you'll notice 6.0.21 is an update that's only available for macOS. If you go to the download package of Zotero ( you will notice that the download links for Linux and Windows are for 6.0.20, only macOS' download link has been updated to 6.0.21.

I agree with @trallafitti. While the Arch packaging guidelines ( are vague, the FAQ ('s_Filesystem_Hierarchy_Standard_(FHS)?) says that Arch follows the FHS ( The FHS is clear that /usr/lib/{pkg} is for architecture-dependent data and /usr/share/{pkg} is for architecture-independent data while /opt/{pkg} is more of a free-for-all.

Hi @trallafitti, the use of one or the other place is more a matter of opinion. Arch package guidelines only describes very general orientation for this affair. The reality is that all the ways work, all the ways makes sense, and, in the end, there will be always packages in all places. If in the future Arch package guidelines bets for a solution, and it is clearly described, I will change it.

@juanmah Would you consider moving all but the actual library files from /usr/lib/zotero to /usr/share/zotero and moving the binary to /usr/bin instead of symlinking to it? Currently chrome icons, extensions, fonts and a whole lot of poppler-data files are installed to /usr/lib and they don't belong there.

If that is not possible, I believe /opt is a better place for all of this.

Oops, just find that 6.0.11 has no binary released. Sorry.

If it's safe we could probably add it to the PKGBUILD

@djipey it is builded by Arch Linux Chinese Community Repository

@pentastarch, I was looking for an ARM build too. I don't understand who builds it but there is version of zotero 6 from the 23-07-2002 on this page: It's almost directly installable on Arch (well, Manjaro in my case), just need to do "zstd -d zotero-6.*", and you'll find a .pkg.tar that can be installed zith "pacman -U name_of_pkg_file". Zotero works smoothly on my Pine book pro now.
