Ah sorry, upon further inspection I think this is an issue with pacaur, which has been discontinued.

@threeofsix that sounds odd to me. In my system gendesk is installed and the command is gendesk. How are you trying to build? Use makepkg -s to automatically install all dependencies, gendesk should be pulled in.

During installation, I get the error:

gmsh-bin/PKGBUILD: line 34: gendesk: command not found

It looks like maybe the gendesk command has changed to gendesc?

hi, sorry, I have been out for holiday with familly.

I did get same error today when udpating this package, but I did restart laptop because there was kernel update too. After restart I could update this package without problems. Strange, but working now. thank you

Hi jancic,

I cannot reproduce your issue. How are you trying to install the package? Are you using an AUR helper or building from the tarball?

EDIT: Sorry, I didn't notice that seems like you are using pacaur. Perhaps its cache got cleared before the packaging could be completed. Try to build manually from the tarball.

Thank you CrocoDuck. It is working great.

Hi threeofsix, thank you for pointing that out. It should be fixed now.

The checksums have changed upstream. Looks like this is pointing to the nightly snapshot tarball. Why not point to the stable tarball, ?
