@Aelius that works, thanks

Hey @supermario, I should have figured this out before but I was too lazy :) now that @deimos complained, I looked it up.

To exclude the beta from being downloaded, you just need to add -R '*beta*.exe' to the dlagents line.

like so:

DLAGENTS=('https::/usr/bin/wget -nH --cut-dirs=3 -r -l 2 -A exe -R '*beta*.exe' %u')

@Aelius thanks for figuring this out! I have applied the update

@deimos It downloads the beta because in order to still download from official sources (instead of hosting manually on dropbox or something similar) we basically download everything on the page and filter out what we're looking for. This is because the official download link is dynamic

I created an updated PKGBUILD that solves the error, which is still happening despite the recent update.

My PKGBUILD does not use unarchiver, it uses 7z, which
a) we don't have to compile; p7zip is in the extra repo.
b) most people are going to have p7zip anyway. I've never heard of unarchiver, I don't want to have to compile it just for this package and I don't want it on my system.
c) Clearly, unarchiver is not very good anyhow, what with these weird unicode errors.

7z is the better choice. This has been bothering me for a long while, I'll be happy to finally drop this unarchiver makedep

@supermario please take notice

Get rid of the silly unarchiver dep, use 7z

7z x foobar2000_v1.3.13.exe -x'!$PLUGINSDIR' -x'!$R0'

Thanks @Dante, it works for me too

Same problem.

Foobar uses NSIS packager by old Pawłowski's colleagues. Looks like its format has been changed recently, so many unpacking tools were broken with it.

You can fix it manually for now. After the installation, move back the misplaced files:
sudo mv /usr/share/foobar2000/''$'\003''肕'/* /usr/share/foobar2000/
It worked for me.

I've upgraded yesterday and foobar2000 is broken. It seems to be links that are broken, they include weird characters like 肕 (for example : /usr/share/foobar2000/肕/avcodec-fb2k-57.dll)
I've tried to desinstall, reinstall (with yaourt), reinstall manually with the snapshot, download source and install by myself (with your PKGBUILD), nothing works.
If I double click on /home/romain/.foobar2000/%03肕/foobar2000.exe, it says "name not valid".
Any idea ?

edit : I've installed a previous version (1.3.10) from dropbox and it's OK. I think my problem comes from the way it's downloaded from foobar's website and paths are constructed.
edit2 : Same problem on my laptop
