the unzip package is a build requirement for installing, but is not listed.

That did it! Good call, thanks visit and thanks again for maintaining on the AUR makes upgrading much easier:)

Solved for me. Please test.

The secret sauce: options=('!strip')

Also updated the directory structure slightly, as we had both: /var/twonky/share{,d}

mkdir /usr/lib/twonky && cd /usr/lib/twonky
mkdir /var/twonky
/usr/lib/twonky/twonkystarter -appdata "/var/twonky"

So question is how is that different from the pkgbuild? I edited the pkgbuild to do the same (removing ini entries) and still receive the error, however doing it manually as root as above it runs fine, any ideas? Also I do not believe it has anything to do with running twonkystarter vs twonkyserver as doesn't seem to make a difference.

Still not too sure what's wrong, I contacted Twonky and they suggested that's usually because of a permissions issue however I can't seem to find any permission problems not to mention running as root should bypass most of those. Just to test something I removed all the files, mkdir /usr/local/twonky then wget'ed the same source file as the PKGBUILD does, unzipped into that folder, and ran /usr/local/twonky/twonkystarter -appdata "/var/twonky" and that seemed to work, what's really odd is that the differences in the pkgbuild are minor at best and shouldn't make any difference from what I did so not sure what the problem is. I tried without the .ini file in the pkgbuild but the same occurred, something is off somewhere just having trouble tracking it down.
