@joe oh, thanks then!

@adeik there's simply a new version available. I hope I'll be able to update the package this weekend!

Hi all,

I tried to install this package but it seems that the addresses to download the rpm are broken, or have been moved by CERN IT staff elsewhere.

Updated. Thanks for notifying!

@joe, I needed to manually install 'qt5-webkit' in order to make it work on Gnome.
You may want to add this package as a required dependency. Thanks!

@kgizdov, thanks for your feedback.

The package does not really provide qtkeychain and ocsync. They are just used by this package in a wrapper script, because older versions are required. That's also why I think the linker configuration should not be updated here.
I also don't really like this, but it's the easiest solution that prevents conflicts.

The cernbox client (this package) and the CERNBox service are different things, so this is not "a self-referencing way", as the packaging standards put it.

EDIT: The package needs to indicate that it provides qtkeychain=0.4 and ocsync=1.7.2.
Running namcap on this gives some problems:

kgizdov@arch ~ namcap /var/cache/pacman/pkg/cernbox-1.7.2_3.1-4-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
cernbox W: Description should not contain the package name.
cernbox W: Referenced library '' is an uninstalled dependency
cernbox W: Referenced library '' is an uninstalled dependency

Please adhere to the AUR rules and fix the description of the package. Also, please put a file `cernbox.conf` in /etc/ to update the linker configuration. It can simply be done by adding the following to the PKGBUILD:
# use a file that pacman can track and update environment
install -d ${pkgdir}/etc/
echo '/usr/lib/cernbox' > ${pkgdir}/etc/

@knowak, I cannot confirm your problem, the client is still working for me.

Does anyone have a problem with "Could not authenticate to server: rejected Basic challenge" during syncing? At some point this client stopped working for me - it worked several months ago on a different arch installation (I am still authorized to use cernbox from the browser)

I have included the working qtkeychain version from the cernbox repo into this package now. It's used by a wrapper script to not interfere with other versions and cause conflicts.

Hope this works for you.
