The Script first downloads a Release.log(.gz) file from the LTSpice Field Update server. That file contains a list of every file required to run LTSpice together with a CRC32 (i think) checksum. The PKGBUILD then proceeds to download every file listed in the release.log, but skips those files that exist on disk an have a matching CRC32 checksum.

What exact error are you experiencing? Are you using an AUR Helper that can't fetch the PKGBUILD or is there a problem with the PKGBUILD itself?

Hi ! I've try to update but the PKGBUILD seems to be unreadable. Is there some trouble with the PKGBUILD or with my installation ? While reading the latter, I can't figure out which url the script will download the package to. Could someone explain it to me ( for the sake of curiosity)? Thank you in advance for your explanations and for your work.

I've updated this on a forked git repository. If the original maintainer wants to put it back into his repo I'll gladly give back control!

Also, the kind of packaging is rather nasty. To circumvent the installing person to click buttons in the install dialog, an extracted version of the software is stored in a github repository which gets pulled by this PKGBUILD. It obviously would be nicer to have the installer push its buttons automatically, either by extracting from the .exe or by using something like autohotkey on wine.

@thegala I just noticed that it reliably freezes under Wayland for me. Try using X11 and see if that helps.

@thegala It's working for me.. Do you have anything more specific? console output/wine logs?

I also updated the package to the newest version, it creates a separate wineprefix now on launch. Please try to update, maybe it solves the problem.

Hello, LTspice isnt working for me anymore. It starts and when I want to create new file LTspice just freezes. Any ideas?

Where can I find the ltspice directory to add new models? When I put them in /usr/shar/ltspice, they don't show up in the menu.

@alex4o thanks for the tip :)

@M4a1x perfect, that was exactly what i had in mind! Thank you very much

Thanks @alex4o for the start launch script update.

I originally planned on revising the package. I still didn't find the time to do that. Therefore I just bumped the version number for now.
