Hi @xiretza: I've tweaked the permissions here.

xiretza commented on 2020-04-06 16:02

The udev rules file should be installed with -Dm644 instead of -Dm755. There's no reason for it to be executable, and udevadm test complains about it:

Configuration file /etc/udev/rules.d/55-ft2232.rules is marked executable. Please remove executable permission bits. Proceeding anyway.

I cannot reliably maintain so I have given up ownership. Apologies for the delay.

Just a heads-up, libftd2xx isn't released under the GPL. The actual license terms are here:

1.4.8 is out.

(and still needs a .SRCINFO regeneration for 1.4.6 currently packaged)

makepkg --printsrcinfo >.SRCINFO

You need to update the .SRCINFO for the aur/aur helpers to understand that the package has been updated.

Latest update is live, sorry for the delay.

I've taken ownership and updated to the latest version. I've also decided to install and keep the static library file (libftd2xx.a) in case it's used in some cases.

Let me know if there are any issues!
