Would "zotero" be the package that ran Zotero's build scripts? Zotero's build scripts don't actually compile anything. They download the Firefox binary and do some repackaging of the config files so it looks like Zotero.

1) create the directories in package() with `install -dm755 ...` and not mkdir.
2) use sha256 sums, not md5.
Thanks :)

PS: Agree with fusion809, this package should be called zotero-bin

Shouldn't this package be called zotero-bin? After all it's built from the binaries built for Linux and not the source code.

Is it just me, or has zotero started displaying weirdly since the last update? Looks like the linked image to me on two computers, one Arch and one Manjaro.

Thanks for the updates @juanmah and thanks for maintaining this package!

As @jon.reeve suggested, the app update is now disabled by default.

Changed back xpdf optional dependency and java-enviroment dependency. @alexanderp and @wsha, you were right.

@jon.reeve, users can set this in menu Edit > Preferences > tab Advanced > subtab General > button Settings Editor (or something like that; I'm backtranslating).

Could we configure this to stop asking the user to update the package? Zotero complains (often) that it's: "Unable to Update; a recommended update is available, but you don't have permission to install it. To update automatically, modify the zotero program directory to be writeable by your user account." But this is ridiculous, since the user shouldn't have to make /usr/lib writeable by their user account.

It looks like you can just change `pref("app.update.enabled", true);` to `false` in /usr/lib/zotero/defaults/preferences/prefs.js.
