It is a custom protocol some AUR packagers invented... :)

As a user you have 3 options:

1) Ignore it. If you copy or symlink the game archive to the directory that contains the PKGBUILD, then makepkg will detect it directly and not care about the protocol.

2) Add the following line to the DLAGENTS=() array in makepkg.conf:

'hib::/usr/bin/find /home/<user>/downloads -name $(echo %u | cut -c 7-) -exec ln -s \{\} %o \; -quit'

Replace <user> with your Arch Linux login name.
This makes sure that whenever an AUR package requests a hib:// file, makepkg will look for it in /home/<user>/downloads (or subdirectories) on the local computer.

3) Install the hib-dlagent AUR package, and add the following line to the DLAGENTS=() array in makepkg.conf:

'hib::/usr/bin/hib-dlagent -u <user> -p <pass> -o %o $(echo %u | cut -c 7-)'

Replace <user> and <pass> with you Humble Bundle account data.
This will enable auto-downloading.

What does hib protocol is? How to find any info about it? How to use it for auto download? Many packages have it but the sad thing is there is no one word about it in Arch Wiki. Also Google seems to be useless…

other hib packages like LittleInferno make elegant use of a hib:// protocol that can automate the file download. That would really ease the process of installing :

I had one problem with this package but it's related to my hardware (HP Probook 4330s).
When lauching the game, it was crashing. In fact, my integrated accelerometer was binded to /dev/input/js0 and Proteus didn't like that. To solve the problem, I have to issue "sudo rmmod hp_accel" to delete this fake joystick and it's working perfectly. Thank you!
