Maybe you should add the -u flag to the cp command in the launcher script. I believe it's overriding the technically more up-to-date file causing the launcher to download the same update every time you launch it.

So, this may not be well known, but atlauncher has a github repo at

Using this, I created what I believe to better follow the Arch package guidelines and also would also cause aur helpers to break less:

I think the java dependency should be java-runtime=8 instead of just java-runtime.

The dependency xorg-server-utils needs to be replaced with xorg-apps.

@Rafmaninoff, where did you place the slash? Line 31 is a mkdir line and the package builds for me without adding a slash?

Rafmaninoff commented on 2016-10-24 19:57

On line 31 of the pkgbuild there's a missing slash, place it back in and it builds fine.

Good catch Flaeme, updated package to add unzip to makedepends.

Flaeme commented on 2016-03-05 01:29

This package, as is, also depends on the unzip command (extra/unzip) to build which is not a part of base-devel and thus should probably be added to the makedeps.

I told you what was the problem with the package 2 months ago. I also gave you a completely functional rewritten Package and PKGBUILD in an email, which you refused to use.

Also, I am not attempting to "steal" it from you. I am only trying to get it updated and functional, because it wasn't. If someone can't simply update a package using code which was already written for them, or write their own update in the time span of 2 months, then I believe the proper thing is to step down and let someone else who is willing to maintain it do so. Heck if I was busy with things in my life and I couldn't maintain a project of mine I would gladly let someone else take over the reigns if they are willing to. I do not care one bit if I'm not the owner anymore. Nobody should as that's against the spirit of this community.

In the end, I am not interested in this petty drama. I tried multiple times to get you to do something but you kept putting me and it off. That's why I finally filed a request, due to you not being able to update the package. Anyway, guess it'll be the mods decision.

The update with the choice between shared and non shared mods directories will have to come when I have the time to finish rewriting the script but as previously stated I will not have an internet connection for 2 weeks as of tomorrow evening.
