[solved] makepkg puts parentheses around .install filename

Hello,

I am trying to install brscan2 from AUR. When I run makepkg -i, I get the following:

==> ERROR: install file ((brscan2.install)) does not exist.

When I echo the $install variable from inside the PKGBUILD, it shows correctly as brscan2.install. I'm not too familiar with the guts of pacman, and can't imagine where those ((parentheses)) have come from. Can someone help? I have some scanning to do smile

Thanks

In the PKGBUILD:

install=brscan2.install

not...

install=(brscan2.install)

It is a string, not an array...

Please post the fixed PKGBUILD in the comments on the AUR page of the package, so that others don't stumble on this.
Maybe even the maintainer will fix it.
