Two questions regarding the dependencies:

1: Why do we need suddenly the java-environment dependency? (I couldn't find why!?)

2. Why xpdf as an optional dependency for PDF indexing? Don't we just need pdfinfo and pdftotext from the poppler package?

The MD5sums for 5.06 are not correct

I prefer the PKGBUILD below. It allows running updpkgsums to update the package quickly. Sadly, you still have to do the silly if/then because of the package() works with $arch (seems to always be set to "i686").

The download link does not work, it gives me an "ERROR: Failure while downloading http://download.zotero.org/standalone/5.0.1/Zotero-5.0.1_linux-x86_64.tar.bz2". The download from the website uses this link (which is working): https://www.zotero.org/download/client/dl?channel=release&platform=linux-x86_64&version=5.0.1

There is no longer a firefox-only beta build. The new beta is standalone with a firefox connector.

Versions after 4.0.29.10 are released for Firefox and macOS only.

jcelerier please read aur comments and zotero changelog before flagging package out-of-date.

ConorIA commented on 2016-11-17 20:46

In regard to the comments about the link location from last year.
Instead of linking, it would be better to write a start script at /usr/bin/zotero

```
#!/bin/sh
cd /usr/lib/zotero
./zotero $*
```
