If any of you wants the latest version, edit PKGBUILD to the following contents:

# Maintainer: Jo De Boeck <deboeck.jo@gmail.com>
# Original Maintainer: Julien Humbert <julroy67@gmail.com>
# Contributor: danyf90
# Contributor: hermes14
pkgname=superbeam
pkgver=5.0.3
pkgrel=1
pkgdesc="The easiest and fastest way to share files with Android"
arch=('any')
url="http://superbe.am/"
license=('custom')
depends=('java-environment' 'bash')
makedepends=('gendesk')
source=("http://superbe.am/download/5294")
md5sums=("SKIP")

prepare(){
gendesk -n -f --pkgname "$pkgname" --pkgdesc "$pkgdesc" --name="SuperBeam" --categories="Network"
}

package() {
mkdir -p "$pkgdir/usr/bin"
install -Dm755 "$srcdir/SuperBeam-5.0.3-linux.sh" "$pkgdir/usr/bin/superbeam"
install -Dm644 "$srcdir/$pkgname.desktop" "$pkgdir/usr/share/applications/$pkgname.desktop"
install -Dm644 "$srcdir/SuperBeam.png" "$pkgdir/usr/share/pixmaps/$pkgname.png"
install -Dm644 "$srcdir/README" "$pkgdir/usr/share/doc/$pkgname/README"
}

I'll take over maintenance of this package if the original author abandon it.

EDIT:
The installed binary doesn't seem to work, though. Even the directly extracted one. I've contacted SuperBeam about this, let's wait for their answer.

Oh, there is a new version 5.0.3.

I keep getting an update notification whenever I launch Superbeam. I re-installed the AUR package and it seems to have stopped. Strange.

donvla commented on 2017-02-25 11:33

The latest version is still 1.2.0.

annoyingduck commented on 2017-02-24 19:16

There has been a new release available for a while, can we get this package updated for the current release?

Remove duplicate download of file. Use internal script of superbeam which detects java from JAVAHOME. Also allows to pass files from the cli interface.

deboeckj commented on 2014-12-15 19:22

Can you make
printf "#!/bin/sh\n\"$JAVA_HOME/bin/java\" -jar \'/usr/share/java/$pkgname/$pkgname.jar\'" > $pkgname.sh

into

printf "#!/bin/sh\n\"$JAVA_HOME/bin/java\" -jar \'/usr/share/java/$pkgname/$pkgname.jar\' $@" > $pkgname.sh

I added a $@ to able to send a file directly usage:
superbeam fileiwonnasent

You need to change source to:
source=(http://superbe.am/pc/all/$pkgname.jar
http://superbe.am/pc/linux/superbeam-linux.tar.gz)

Simply removing the "www". Otherwise it will result in a faulty "superbeam-linux.tar.gz", failing the md5sum check.

Updated, sorry for the delay.
