Pkgbuild how-to

I want to install skim on my computer using a pkgbuild. But I have found lots of information about how to build them but not how to use them. Is there something I didn't see....

Re: Pkgbuild how-to

The Arch package making HOW-TO - with guidelines

You place all information for creating a package in a PKGBUILD file. When you run makepkg, it will look for a PKGBUILD file in the current working directory, and compile the software's source code according to the instructions in the PKGBUILD file. After successfully finishing the compilation, the resulting binaries, as well as all available meta-information like package version and dependencies, are packed in the name.pkg.tar.gz package file that can be cleanly installed with pacman -Up <package file>.

It's the second paragraph! big_smile
