If you are having problems with sums, simply use makepkg -Ci and it works fine.

The current release is listed as 24.0.2.0 but the version in the About section of the settings says 24.0.3.0 . IDK, ask the slimjet devs!

I just tried to install Slimjet and got the same error message as @scjet below. This is what I got.

Preparing... Cloning slimjet build files... Checking slimjet dependencies...

Thanks, Ian

EDIT: I fixed the problem by editing the PKGBUILD before applying it (using the GUI to copy and paste a new MD5 checksum value into the script). I realised too late that I had copied the checksum from the wrong version, 23.0.11.0, but I hadn't changed the version, it was still 23.0.10.0. However, strangely, the build worked and Slimjet was successfully installed. I don't know how two different versions could have the same checksum, but I'm a complete noob. On top of that the version it installed was 23.0.11.0.

Hi raininja, are you still going to maintain this package?

@j1simon this bowser sends data like any other browsers. Privacy and security different things

FYI: https://spyware.neocities.org/articles/slimjet.html

I think this package should be removed for a basic security issue.

Why can't it work without root permissions? This is by itself a security risk.

It does not seem to provide a system wide pepper-flash (It is in /opt/slimjet/PepperFlash, but not installed system-wide). So, consider removing the provides-entry, since it creates unnessesary conflicts with other packages.

(Same with slimjet. There is no slimjet symlinked to /usr/bin.)

dreieck commented on 2018-09-02 13:52

license=('custom:slimjet'), but the package fails to install the license text (or at least a note) to /usr/share/licenses/${pkgdir}.

dreieck commented on 2018-09-02 13:47

This package provides a precompiled binary. So please rename it to slimjet-bin, or build it from source. (Building from source might also solve segfault-issues.)

dreieck commented on 2018-09-02 13:46

md5sums are wrong (at least for x86_64).

And makepkg -Ci, as noted in a comment, is definitely not a solution.
