I was not able initially download it because the source filename in the PKGBUILD does not match the upstream source filename. I had to edit the source link to match the upstream in order to download and install it.

This is due to version number being "" while the upstream named the package with the version "4.12.5" so maybe the PKGBUILD version changing to "4.12.5-1" might help solve this problem.

This PKGBUILD working with minimal changes: _pkgver=$(wget "" -q -O - |grep "tar.bz2" | grep "4kvideodownloader" |cut -d "_" -f4)


I made new md5sums with makepkg -g >>PKGBUILD, but in first line change md5sum to 'SKIP'

delete all sha256sums

In package() section after this line: install -m 755 -t "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/${pkgname}" "${pkgname}.sh"

(one line) sed -i 's/\$(dirname \$(readlink -f \"\$0\"))/\"\/usr\/lib\/4kvideodownloader\"/' "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/${pkgname}/${pkgname}.sh"

Working fine without .SRCINFO (because version number changing every time, now

Thanks Tritol and Everton. I followed Tritol's instructions, and got an error about missing "4kvideodownloader.install", but Everton's link had what I needed. Then after uninstalling the existing 4kvideodownloader, and trying again, it's working. Perhaps all this is basic Arch Linux knowledge, but this is the only way I've been able to learn this, and I appreciate it. I saved the steps into my Manjaro notes file.

git clone

overwrite PKGBUILD
makepkg -si

just works for me

I just did an update in Manjaro and 4k video downloader won't run, saying it's missing Qt_5.

/usr/lib/4kvideodownloader/4kvideodownloader-bin: /usr/lib/4kvideodownloader/ version `Qt_5.15' not found (required by /usr/lib/
/usr/lib/4kvideodownloader/4kvideodownloader-bin: /usr/lib/4kvideodownloader/ version `Qt_5.15' not found (required by /usr/lib/
/usr/lib/4kvideodownloader/4kvideodownloader-bin: /usr/lib/4kvideodownloader/ version `Qt_5.15' not found (required by /usr/lib/

Have tried re-building using Tritol's link, but "fix_symlink_path.patch" fails verification.
