If you try to build this package and ODAFileConverter_QT5_lnxX64_7.2dll.deb doesn't match the sha256 sum run the update script included to build whatever the latest update is. And then flag it out of date here so I can do the same.

Turns out they did a version increment despite not changing the dl, fixed. Try a clean build because extracts won't override all the old files properly.

@zanny thank you. I have another error now:

The remote deb changed but it works on a rebuild so I updated the pkgbuild. Kind of annoying to have them changing the same versioned release though.

Trying to install on Manjaro I get:

TeighaFileConverter_QT5_lnxX64_4.7dll.deb ... FAILED
==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

Nice. Your package looks cleaner and into Arch's KISS philosophy than mine. A binary named TeighaFileConverter isn't much trouble for using in Arch (e.g. virtualbox has binary VBox), but I don't see much problem in renaming it.

Besides doing delete request for the the qt4 package, could you do a merge request for this qt5 package?

I took a stab at rewriting this package. Since Open Design doesn't even advertise the qt4 version anymore I intend to get rid of it.

For now, the new package is found at

I reorganized it to install to /opt since this is a proprietary bundle package. If anyone has a link to where the extra license in here came from, I could add that instead of the awful four lines of copyright text in the actual package.

The only up in the air question is about binary and package names - teigha-file-converter abides by Arch convention. TeighaFileConverter is what everything is actually named in Teigha. Freecad auto-detects the converter at /usr/bin/TeighaFileConverter, so for right now I just symlink it to teigha-file-converter. Which isn't very Arch-like. So if popular concensus is just to call it TeighaFileConverter everywhere (including the package name) I could easily refactor that.

If nobody has any complaints, I'll adopt the qt4 package as well and submit deletes on both and have teigha-file-converter replace them.

The license is also messed up. You have to manually add a file to the build directory called license and paste in the license...

I've been updating the PKGBUILD with version number and sha256sums. You should replace _version= with _version= and run updpkgsums in the PKGBUILD dir to update the sums. Then the package installs fine as of today.

Disowning. Feel free to adopt and update.

71GA: Thanks, I pushed a new update.

I declared two versions because OpenDesign's versioning doesn't help much:

1) The source tarball never reflects the version change as the filename is always the same (reason why users might get md5sums issue when it's out-of-date)

2) The software version is a bit different of the version in directory names. e.g. for Teigha FileConverter 4.2.2 (see about dialog) the name of directory in source code is
