That's odd, it's working fine this way... Could you please:

* Confirm that makepkg says the source's sum is correct
* Let me know about anything special you've set in /etc/makepkg.conf that I might be overlooking.
* Confirm that running `bsdtar tf /path/to/wkhtmltox-0.12.2.1_linux-wheezy-amd64.deb | grep 'data'` outputs 'data.tar.xz'

Thanks.

Your package fails to build for me on x86_64.
==> Unpacking data.tar.xz (Debian package files)
tar: data.tar.xz: Cannot open: No such file or directory

Seems like either deb is not found or makepkg fails to unpack it. Not sure which.

Yes, my mistake. Rewrote part of the PKGBUILD and got confused between values used by $CARCH and architecture names used upstream. Thanks, fixed.

I believe there's a small type in the PKGBUILD:

;;
- "amd64")
+ "x86_64")
_arch="amd64"
sha256sums=('75f3379b8bf3998f9875270a12219263ee25ab3e97a511f37137c199b1f8c40a')
;;

At least, I had to change it so it worked for me!

Thanks!

Hi all, package has been updated to 0.12.2

phillid commented on 2015-01-13 20:51

Thanks for flagging to alert me to there being a new release. I'll be sure to update when I find the time within the next day or two.

Thanks @psytoolkit, I'd like to list the advantages in the description field, but there's such a massive list of advantages.

Some other key advantages:
* <h1> through <h6> tags are transformed into a hierarchy of PDF headings so you can expand/collapse sections/chapters in your reader and use the headings as anchors.
* IIRC, links don't work in the dynamically-linked version in the official repos.

It is important to point out the advantage of this static version over the standard version on pacman (wkhtmltopdf). This version works really headless (e.g., as part of a crontab), whereas the normal version seems to need a running X server (or Xvfb).

Ta, that's just as I thought.
