Make sure to set 'user_allow_other' in /etc/fuse.conf

# echo user_allow_other >> /etc/fuse.conf"

@urukhigh That's lgogdownloader asking for your GOG username and password.

Try running lgogdownloader to setup your credentials so it doesn't ask again.

What mailbox and password?

@qark That's a connection problem (HTTP ERROR: 403 FORBIDDEN).
Try running: lgogdownloader --download-file heroes_of_might_and_magic_3_complete_edition/en1installer1
If that command doesn't work, try and see why. Maybe you have the wrong credentials or you haven't purchased the game on gog.

Would be great if you could add WoG option here too)

Unfortunately, if you're using yaourt, it will build in /tmp by default.
You can circumvent this with:

$ mkdir yaourttmp
$ TMPDIR=yaourttmp yaourt -S gog-heroes-of-might-and-magic-3-complete-edition
$ rm -rf yaourttmp

Gog games are pretty big compared to most aur packages. Homm3 from gog is close to 1GB, then it needs to be extracted (another GB) in the src directory, then copied over to the pkg directory (another GB), then compressed into a pkg.gz file (another GB).

I could save a GB by moving the files from the src directory to the pkg directory, but it's not a very proper way of packaging in aur. However, I will take your recommendation and save that 1GB. The packaging process should now be about 3.5GB.

Thank you for packaging HoMM3.

Is it possible to decrease consumption of space on /tmp during building and packaging? (Default size of /tmp is equal to half of RAM and for now install procedure needs more than 4Gb on /tmp). If not, I think the easiest way to resolve this - set DEVELSRCDIR in yaourtrc.
