Please also include the man page in the package.

And it's fixed again.

Unfortunately the downloader is not working at the moment due to changes in the GOG API. The developer is working on fixing this. Follow developments here:

And we're already up to 1.15.

Sorry that took me far too long - it's been one of those weeks! The PKGBUILD is now updated and works with jsoncpp like it should.

Updated PKGBUILD for version 1.14 which works with jsoncpp version 0.5.0

# Maintainer: Joe Davison <>

pkgdesc="An open source downloader for games, uses the API"
arch=(i686 x86_64)
depends=('boost' 'jsoncpp' 'liboauth' 'rhash' 'tinyxml' 'htmlcxx' 'curl')

build() {
cd "$srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver"

make release


package() {
install -D -m 755 $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver/bin/Release/$pkgname \

I think you should not update to a version that requires unreleased versions of libraries. No one benefits from a PKGBUILD that does not build.
Better keep it at a version that builds, and upgrade only once all requirements can be met.

Updated to 1.12. Note that it won't build without modifying the jsoncpp package to install jsoncpp version 0.6.0-rc2.

Here's a PKGBUILD to do just that (you probably shouldn't use this):
pkgdesc="A JSON C++ library"
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
makedepends=('scons' 'gcc')

cd ${startdir}/src/${pkgname}-src-${pkgver}-rc2
scons platform=linux-gcc

mkdir -p ${pkgdir}/usr/include/jsoncpp
cp -r include/json ${pkgdir}/usr/include/jsoncpp/json

mkdir -p ${pkgdir}/usr/lib
cp buildscons/linux-gcc-*/src/lib_json/libjson_linux-gcc* ${pkgdir}/usr/lib/
cd ${pkgdir}/usr/lib/
ln -sf libjson_linux-gcc-*
