Improved PKGBUILD. Thanks to rtfreedman.

I am trying to get away from relying on any unpacking utility using the Wine PKGBUILD Guidelines[1], but I am running into various problems setting it up correctly.

I believe I should be able to add the following to the PKGBUILD:

install -m755 -d "$srcdir"/tmp "$srcdir"/tmp/env "$srcdir"/tmp/local export WINEPREFIX="$srcdir"/tmp/env export XDG_DATA_HOME="$srcdir"/tmp/local
wine "$srcdir"/{pkgname}v_{pkgver}.exe /S
install -Dm644 "$srcdir"/tmp/env/drive_c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/foobar2000 "$pkgdir"/usr/share/$pkgname

but I run into:

ERROR: object '' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored. ?
ERROR: object '' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored. ?
wine: chdir to /tmp/.wine-1000/server-21-60deb9 : No such file or directory

I will post to the forums[2] later to see if I can get any assistance.

foobar2000 dynamic link expires quickly, so switched to dropbox.

You can simplify the PKGBUILD (and make it content-agnostic) by using unarchiver's unar

package() {
# unpack NSIS installer .exe into destination
unar -q -D -e windows-1252 -o "${pkgdir}/usr/share/${pkgname}" "${srcdir}/${pkgname}_v${pkgver}.exe"
# remove NSIS installer plugins directory
rm -fr "${pkgdir}/usr/share/${pkgname}/NSIS Plugins Directory"
# Install license
install -Dm644 "${srcdir}/LICENSE" "${pkgdir}/usr/share/licenses/${pkgname}/LICENSE"

I can't get foobar2000 to not stutter regardless of the settings I've used. It happens every few seconds with any audio, lossless or not. I've increased the buffer and thread priority, but it does nothing. I only have ALSA installed and every audio player I've used has worked fine. I'm really confused.

Any suggestions? I've never had this problem before.

@deimos: you're right, sorry I didn't see that dynamic link.

The zip source from just contains the windows installer. I have not changed to a link, because I am not sure what the best practice is for handling uniquely generated links.
