If you get a checksum error on, please try to download this file manually from before building.

The host for the source URL is hostile towards direct downloads and will randomly output the wrong content. In my experience, retrying once or twice is enough to make it work (don't forget to delete the source archive first !).

Thanks for the help on this. I found the same thing, but i wasn't entirely sure about this. Building wxgtk2-dev for this tool is not worth it in my opinion, it would be better to wait until wxWidgets 3.1 is put in the stable branch, which according to roadmap should happen before the end of this year:

Class wxStandardPaths has new SetFileLayout member since wxWidgets 3.1.1, but wxgtk2 package is updated to wxWidgets 3.0.4 (stable version). So freefilesync 10.6 will not compile using wxgtk2. It would be necessary to use wxgtk2-dev in AUR.

Correct, this is solved by trying again, then the checksum passes. No idea why though, perhaps the download fails the first time?

10.6 will not build, it generates the following error:

base/ffs_paths.cpp: In function 'Zstring fff::getConfigDirPathPf()':
base/ffs_paths.cpp:88:32: error: 'class wxStandardPaths' has no member named 'SetFileLayout'
compilation terminated due to -Wfatal-errors.
make: *** [Makefile:107: ../Obj/FFS_GCC_Make_Release/ffs/src/base/ffs_paths.cpp.o] Error 1
make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....

Suggestions or more info is welcome.

@Nori13: it's alright, thanks for having maintained the package until now, much appreciated!

Please disown the package so that a new maintainer can take over.

Wishing you all the best in life!

Due to some life changes, I no longer have time to maintain this package. Sorry for any trouble this causes.

The checksum for the file: "", seems to be wrong in the PKGBUILD. The correct checksum is: "5c6f96d85dac1c6cd0ee511e7f7062b71ec271f0aa70c779af76498948391740", replace it by yourself. Otherwise the installation goes wrong.

@roachsinai: you can download them here

But you should prefer to use git to download the sources.

Hi, I cannot install cause the net speed. When I try install use makepkg locally, where should I go to download FreeFileSync.desktop ffsicon.png RealTimeSync.desktop rtsicon.png?
