You need to run sha256sum against vuescan-bin-x64-2020-11-22-09-09.tgz. Then edit PKGBUILD and replace the long text string in sha256sums_x86_64=('...') with the value. Then you can install the package. I have been using a registered copy of vuescan for several years on Arch but I do not use this AUR package. There are still manual operations which need to be performed as described in the README.txt in /opt/VueScan. Since these are manual, pacman will not "undo" them should you decide to remove the package.

sha256sum value is wrong!!!

Version 9.7.35 is out. Works to just reinstall this package, except you need to skip sha256sums checks, alternative modify the PKGBUILD before installing.

For version 9.7.32-1 of August 28, 2020, same problem with sha256sums. it is necessary to modify the PKGbuilt by replacing the sha256sums by those given by @aggraef : and everything works perfectly

@aggraef: Thank you.

Your link and your PKGBUILD is very good.

Vuescan is working perfectly.

Another update?

This AUR Biuld is frustating.

Latest sha256sums (generate by running makepkg --geninteg against the package):

This package is a chore for any package maintainer because of the frequent updates and the way it is distributed.

@FabioLolix, I'd just go ahead and maintain this like a git package, skipping the checksums and generating the pkgver automatically. Then users can just update the package from the AUR whenever they feel the urge to do so. I've uploaded a PKGBUILD which does this here:

Note that this uses wget and grep/sed to extract the current version number from the author's website. This might need tweaking when the layout of changes.
