@Alkaris what worked for me was:

1) Attempt build once so that it fails but creates the directories

2) Go to and create a free account and download the file ""

3) Copy the file to: /var/tmp/pamac-build-{your-user-name}/nvidia-sdk

4) Run the build again and it should complete without errors

@Alkaris It's the directory where you cloned this repository. See the Wiki article:

Where is the directory for PKGBUILD to put the manually downloaded zip? I downloaded it to my Downloads directory, but it can't find it and fails to build/install when using pamac or pacman even though I edited the PKGBUILD "local://" URL.

@damico AUR helpers are not supported. Place the source file in the PKGBUILD directory and run makepkg.

Hi, I'me receiving this error: Can't pull 'nvidia-sdk' in '/home/rodrigo/.local/share/pikaur/aur_repos/nvidia-sdk' from AUR: Updating 19bbd02..3256e33

warning: Pulling without specifying how to reconcile divergent branches is discouraged. You can squelch this message by running one of the following commands sometime before your next pull:

@Cysioland Why the new makepkg hates file:// ? It works fine for me.

Cysioland commented on 2018-07-19 17:16

Could you replace file:// with local:// ?

Because new makepkg hates file://

Your affirmative is wrong and in this case it's necessary. There is no other way to make an AUR package that requires manual source file download without using 'file://'.
If I remove the 'file://' part from PKGBUILD (and consequently from .SRCINFO) the AUR will reject my push beucase the source if is not tracked by git.
I understand that from the user point of view it makes to no difference to be with or without 'file://' because makepkg will expect the local source file to there in any of these cases. But it's not possible make the AUR package without using it.
Anyway, please read the following forum topic. This situation is discussed there and competent users/administrators said that 'file://' is a "de facto" standard for AUR packages that requires manual source file download from the user.
Here is the link:

The "file://" part is still completely unnecessary.

Unfortunately it's not possible due to licensing issues. NVIDIA requests the user to manually accept their EULA before downloading the zip file, and so a direct download link cannot be provided in PKGBUILD.

This kind of issue has been detailed discussed in the following forum topic:
