@Kewl, done.

@Axolotles, please email me a screen shot of what you're seeing from the Debian package and what you're seeing from the AUR package and I'll see if I can explain the difference. My email address is in my profile.

@benelexau thanks it works now but it doesn't seem to be the same application that you would get for Debian. I installed it on MX Linux directly from the IB website and this looks like a different app.

@benalexau Would it be possible to also delete $HOME/.local/share/applications/install4j_*.desktop that are not linking to any valid path and polluting the application menu?

@Axolotles give it another try now.

Thanks @empire. I have amended the optdepends as suggested. AUR accepted the git push without requiring a later version number. In the more general sense of updating checksums, most of the time it's genuinely a new upstream version (ie with a new version number) so it's reasonable to update the PKGBUILD reported version in such cases.

I'm not sure if it's still possible but before the AUR moved git, you used to be able to update an AUR package without bumping the pkgrel/pkgver. That could be one way to update the checksums without causing everyone to download it again.

Also, if you want to skip the download, you can check in your script if the file has been updated with curl --head $url.
