PSA for update to 2.0.0:

The organization of the download queue is different from 0.7.x releases. So 2.x.x will not see the existing queue, but you can go to Status->QueueRepair and "Repair" the old queue.

Is anyone else seeing excessive redirects when trying to download the package? Sorry, using pacaur.

Sabnzbd can't find pyopenssl unless I append 'PYTHONPATH=/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages' to the start of /usr/bin/sabnzbd. Terminal output without the above, for me, reads: 2016-09-16 05:02:39,249::INFO::[SABnzbd:514] pyOpenSSL... NOT found! - Try apt-get install python2-openssl (SSL is optional)

It doesn't stop the program from starting and running, but try a regular start up in terminal and check the output. It might just be unique to how I have my env configured. If not, here's what my /usr/bin/sabnzbd shell script now reads:
PYTHONPATH=/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages python2 /opt/sabnzbd/ -f ${HOME}/.sabnzbd.ini "${@}"

or if loading configuration from /opt:
PYTHONPATH=/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages python2 /opt/sabnzbd/ -f /opt/sabnzbd/sabnzbd.ini "${@}"

I think this should work in every case (excluding a non-standard location for site-packages), because it only changes the env variable for that one execution instance. Same probably goes for the sabnzbd.desktop exec line and systemd service, but I haven't tested these yet. Anyhow, thanks for maintaining this package Revelation60 :)

@Revelation60: no probs, hope you had a nice trip! :)

Sorry for the delay, I was on a hiking trip in Argentina.

The package is updated now. Note that if you want to update the icon for the .nzb files, you should run
xdg-icon-resource install --context mimetypes --size 256 /opt/sabnzbd/nzb.png application-x-nzb

(or you could reinstall the package).

Any plans on updating this anytime soon?

You are absolutely right! Fixed it now.

Looks like we're pulling from the upstream "Source Code (.tar.gz)" option on github (, there's a significant amount of diffs between the above version and (SABnzbd-1.0.1-src.tar.gz) though both are labelled as 1.0.1 release and functionally do not seem different.

If we want the versioning represented appropriately we can change the package to pull down the Linux source package (SABnzbd-1.0.1-src.tar.gz).

Do so by removing lines 32-35 in the PKGBUILD.

You also need to modify lines 15 and 30 respectively in the PKGBUILD to read as:


cp -r "${srcdir}/${_pkgname}-${pkgver}/"* "${pkgdir}/opt/${pkgname}"

Yeah, I noticed this too, if anything this appears to be an upstream issue, because the tar archive for v1.0.0 is coming from upstream.

I just update sabnzbd with this package but it states it is version 0.8.x.
Within help as well as in the tab of my browser

Is this intended ?

Update: it can be easily corrected by editing /opt/sabnzbd/sabnzbd/
