patching usr/share/applications/atom-beta.desktop is failing with Atom Beta 1.32.0-beta1

Yep installing with pacaur fails with srcinfo/pkgver mismatch but makepkg works :)

samcv commented on 2017-06-26 07:33

In the case this package is out of date, you can rebuild it with makepkg and it will install the latest version (it checks the atom release feed and always installs the latest version).

There is a bug in pacaur which causes the version number to not be updated. The trizen AUR package manager ( does not have this bug. So you can either install it with makepkg, trizen or install it with pacaur and ignore the version shown. I am not sure of how other package managers behave.

I am not sure if trizen will let you know if there is an update but it will at least install the package as the correct version.

@mykiwi yes contributions are more than welcome. I've been under the weather for the last few days so sorry for the delay in getting this fixed.

If somebody here would also like to be a co-maintainer I am not against adding additional co-maintainers. If you would like to be a co-maintainer please email me (email is on my AUR profile page).

When this bug will be fixed? Can we contribute?

data.tar.gz is now data.tar.xz for some reason.

- bsdtar xf data.tar.gz
+ tar xf data.tar.xz

did the trick.

Build error for 1.18.0-beta0

bsdtar: Error opening archive: Failed to open 'data.tar.gz'
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

when installing with pacaur this comes up, which probably points to something configured wrong in the package:

:: atom-editor-beta-bin package(s) failed to install. Check .SRCINFO for mismatching data with PKGBUILD.

I received the following error when upgrading:

error: 'atom-editor-beta-bin-1.17.0.beta0-1': description file is missing
error: 'atom-editor-beta-bin-1.17.0.beta0-1': file list is missing

If anyone else runs into this issue, uninstalling and reinstalling the package fixed the problem, at least for me.
