That is what the sed commands in my first comment did. I use that to set it to a common use on my CI server before building it.

You also need to change the user in the service file if you want to run it as a regular service.

I changed the pkgdir to install it to my home dir but that gave an error when I tried to run it. The simple solution was to go into the .install and change the user from sabnzbd to my user and the group I wanted. I now have access to the files it downloads.

If I do that will it give my user ownership of the files?

Sabnzbd tar.gz is selfcontained. That means you can simply extract its content to which directory you like and start sab by running "/usr/bin/python2 ./" from inside the sabnzbd directory. No real need for installation.

That's not really how a service normally works. But it's up to you. change everything that has $pkgdir/opt to be $pkgdir/home/foo/bar/wherever/you/want.

Could the install location be changed in the pkgbuild to make it install to my home directory?

I do this before building it; just replace 'downloads' with whatever user you want it to install/run as (I have sickbeard/couchpotato/sab/transmission etc running as downloads user, and have my user accounts in the downloads group).

sed -i 's/="sabnzbd"/="downloads"/g' sabnzbd.install
sed -i 's/=sabnzbd/=downloads/g' sabnzbd.service
makepkg -rcfs

Since this app installs to /opt that means root owns it and my user can't access the files that are downloaded. Is there a work around for this?

There are an 0.7.17RC2 with RAR 5.01 support. Is it possible to get that package? Eg. as a second beta AUR package if u think it isn't stable enough?
