hard to access source on gnomelook.

A user, jonathon, kindly reminds me that I should not include original sources in an AUR repo see https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/xcur … ral%2B%2B/

I realise this is not in the AUR spirit, but the included file is quite small.

I can download the required file by hand using a browser, but the links all seem to fail when used with curl / wget

108142-Neutral++-1.0.3.tar.xz has link

https://www.gnome-look.org/p/999941/sta … size=43751

the output of using the above is an html page not the wanted tar file.

Anyone know how to go through the twisty download sequence?

Re: hard to access source on gnomelook.

That's right, don't upload sources to the AUR.

Because it doesn't seem possible to download the sources in an automated fashion (not that I tried too hard to find a way), there are two options I can think of. 1) set the `sources` array to "local://Neutral++1.0.3.tar.xz" and instruct the user to download the sources manually. 2) Try to contact the author so you or he upload the file to github/gitlab/.

Good ideas; I have emailed a possible author.

Re: hard to access source on gnomelook.

The current url is as below - the problem with a site like that, however, is that this url might change at any time:

Re: hard to access source on gnomelook.

Yes it has done that a couple of times. I guess whenever they need to reorder lookups they rehash
