Could you please add the installation command for the other binaries distributed by vmd (e.g. catdcd)? May be using a wrapper? I would suggest something like:

diff --git a/PKGBUILD b/PKGBUILD

@E3LDDfrK there is a request because it is pre-built version from developers. They are also providing source code for users to build it by themselves

The sha256 sum of vmd.desktop is 942b752e2c9c1d6e3adb55ccdee14d1794640c341ddb7d8d70fb02396dafe81a A small edit in the PKGBUILD will fix the error.

The sha256 sum of the vmd.desktop is wrong, could you please update?

E3LDDfrK commented on 2019-12-17 13:44

Could anyone explain to me why the request for vmd-bin?

dviktor commented on 2019-09-26 20:01

Could you please rename this package to vmd-bin?

@materia the MD5 looks ok. Make sure you're using vmd-1.9.4a31.bin.LINUXAMD64-CUDA9-OptiX600-RTX-OSPRay170.opengl.tar.gz.

berquist commented on 2019-05-28 20:30

@materia I will take a look today.

materia commented on 2019-05-27 19:29

I'm no expert, but I believe the md5sum doesn't match. Could someone confirm it's not just me?

a.kudelin commented on 2019-04-30 21:17

Please, rename to vmd-bin or switch to build from source.
