@degeberg Can you add -DLINUX_X11POWER=on to the cmake command? That would stop screensaver from activating during video. (

I don't why it sometimes fails when using an AUR helper that has old versions cached. It works fine when using "makepkg" even if old files are present, so I suspect it's a bug in the AUR helper. I don't know if anyone has ever tried submitting a bug report to whatever AUR helpers they're using.

As for downloading the sha1 file, I suppose it's not really necessary. The Plex build script will download the file if it doesn't exist, but because I don't want any downloading to happen during the build process I just added it as a source. In principle, it could just as well be generated by the PKGBUILD script, but it shouldn't make any difference.

Is there no way to prevent the need to constantly clear the cache before upgrading this package ? Looks like the web-client-desktop doesn't change version as often, and is not downloaded along with the other components because it's already in the cache:

  -> Found web-client-desktop-3.100.1-d7ae231.tar.xz
  -> Found web-client-desktop-3.100.1-d7ae231.tar.xz.sha1

Yet it fails the checksum step:

    web-client-desktop-3.100.1-d7ae231.tar.xz ... FAILED
    web-client-desktop-3.100.1-d7ae231.tar.xz.sha1 ... FAILED

Isn't there a mechanism to bypass that problem ?

Also, I'm no expert in building packages, but I don't understand the point of downloading the sha1 file if you're going to check the archive against your own sha512 in the PKGBUILD file.

Why are there two desktop files for this package? One of them is redundant.

@athordan Did you try cleanbuilding? Most (if not all) AUR helpers ask whether to cleanbuild when you try to install something from the AUR. Just say yes. Another way is to find where your AUR helper keeps its cache and delete everything in that folder.

Doesn't work for me:

Disregard. I cleanbuilt and it worked :)

@knaick Where are those? Does it depend on your package manager?
