The data folder is owned by root, when it should be owned by the user. When its owned by root it can't save some settings

I made a 'fork' of the this package. My version uses fuse-overlayfs (no root needed), instead of symlinks.

If anyone is interested:

How about adding wine-mono as a dependency? without that, wine will ask to install it the first time you run mp3tag.

Package is working as at today (for 2.99a-2) - will likely break on the next upstream version due to silly upstream download links.

Doesn't work. Better install mp3tag via Wine the usual way if you really need it. Native alternative: easytag.

As I'm not a maintainer/co-maintainer of this package I have not access rights to push fixes. However, I've imported this repo into my github account and applied a few fixes. If you want to run with Mp3Tag v2.99, please go checkout my github repo:


I'll add a README for instructions on how to build/install the package.

That's correct(ish).

The direct download link for the current version is:


BTW, I cloned the repo, made local fixes (had to update the sha256sum and the download URL) and test-ran the install. However it didn't work because the Mp3Tag.exe could not load the dll libs it needs.... Turns out the launcher (."$HOME"/.mp3tag/mp3tag) needs to set the WINEPATH environment variable, as such:

cd "$HOME"/.mp3tag && WINEDEBUG=-all WINEPATH="$HOME"/.mp3tag/mp3tag wine "$HOME"/.mp3tag/mp3tag "$@"

The package then crashed as there are missing dependencies; should be:

depends=('wine' 'samba' 'lib32-gnutls')

so the upstream author just redirects download links for old versions to the generic download page? that sucks. guess this package just needs updating to 2.99a and it'll be "fixed" for now

The reason the checksum doesn't work is pretty straight forward!

The source file ( is actually a html document NOT an exe, hence the checksum does not match as the checksum is for the exe.

Checksum still doesn't seem to be right...
