Note that 28.7.0 was signed with the lead dev's pgp key rather that the usual Linux dev's key. You'll need to import the new key into your keyring before the pgp check will be able to verify the tarball: gpg --keyserver=keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 8FCF9CEC

@WorMzy

Because upstream take a while to release their 'official' Linux binaries, while the source code is available immediately. If the PKGBUILD is updated before the binaries are available, then people will get 404 errors until upstream pull their finger out. ;)

True, but the upstream released the new version (at the time of writing this) 3 days ago already... (2020-12-17 00:10 to be precise)

Not sure if the AUR allows bin-packages which get autoupdated by an external application polling download pages of the upstream.

@micwoj92 the binary has been released literally TODAY! "So long", are you serious? If you cannot wait for a few hours for someone to update the PKGBUILD for you, just simply edit pkgver and checksum locally for Christ's sake!

micwoj92 commented on 2020-11-24 21:21

Why does this package always takes so long to update on aur compared to 'palemoon' ?

oberon2007 commented on 2020-11-09 10:09

@WorMzy yes that's weird. I just checked and both versions work. 'palemoon -h' however shows double-hyphens...

WorMzy commented on 2020-11-09 01:58

Either should work just as well, however it should be noted that upstream uses single dashes in the official .desktop file (and they get pissy if you deviate even slightly from what they dictate): https://repo.palemoon.org/MoonchildProductions/Pale-Moon/src/branch/master/palemoon/branding/official/palemoon.desktop

Thank you @andym . Fixed.

There are errors in the palemoon.desktop file. In each or the three [Desktop Action ...] sections the Exec= line is missing a "-". For example: Exec=palemoon -private-window should be Exec=palemoon --private-window

WorMzy commented on 2020-10-30 13:45

Thanks, but it's not that much effort to increment pkgver and run updpkgsums.

Sorry for the delay, I wasn't aware oberon hadn't pushed the update yet.

I edited the PKGBUILD so that it never needs manual a update. i saved you a lifetime of work. https://pastebin.com/raw/ZJ67Bkcq
