The GUI label is intentionally 2.2.4, this is related to it being a Linux-only launcher update, sorry if this causes any confusion

Update: The package no longer verifies sha256sums, but only the PGP signature.

As always, if makepkg complains about an "unknown key", you'll have to import it (or skip verification at your own risk):

gpg --keyserver hkps:// --recv-key AAC9264309E4D717441DB9527373B12CE03BEB4B

I was unable to import the key automatically, the gpg --recv-key command listed below failed with this error:

gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.                                                                                                                                                                                                             
gpg: Total number processed: 0

What worked for me was to find and import the key manually:

curl | gpg --import

I keep getting this error: ERROR: PGP signature of 'Release' could not be verified

gpg: Signature made Thursday 19 March 2020 05:31:32 PM IST

gpg: using RSA key AAC9264309E4D717441DB9527373B12CE03BEB4B

gpg: Can't check signature: No public key

==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare().

That's a "could not be verified" for a completely different reason. Notice it outright says "bad signature" and not just "missing key"...

Either you have mismatching Release and Release.gpg files (they're actually rebuilt every now and then), or you have in fact downloaded a corrupted file. Check its contents, delete all 4 downloaded files and then retry.

I've imported AAC9264309E4D717441DB9527373B12CE03BEB4B, still getting:

==> ERROR: PGP signature of 'Release' could not be verified
gpg: Signature made Thu 19 Mar 2020 08:01:32 AM EDT
gpg:                using RSA key AAC9264309E4D717441DB9527373B12CE03BEB4B
gpg: BAD signature from "RuneScape Linux <>" [unknown]

Seems the binaries are now included in the .deb again as of 2.2.7.

Ok I've found the problem, apparently my terminal automatically escapes the curly brackets. Thanks for responding so quickly :)

grawity commented on 2020-03-15 13:29

The files are still there. (Four files, to be specific.) Don't put the URL in quotes – it uses bash/zsh {…} expansion to grab all of them at once.

But if the upstream package is still broken, I guess I'll just make the PKGBUILD directly download the old package for now. (The game will just auto-update anyway.)

Zelzahn commented on 2020-03-15 13:22

@grawity I'm getting a 404 from the link. Is it possible to reupload the file?

Stif commented on 2020-03-05 11:17

Thanks @grawity that works perfectly.

grawity commented on 2020-03-05 08:22

That's because it is literally missing from the upstream .deb (which is frequently rebuilt without changing the version number, and it seems there's something wrong in their build process). Jagex is aware of the issue.

For the time being, download these older versions into your PKGBUILD directory before running makepkg:
