Error downloading sources: scid_vs_pc
[roger@lenovo ~]$

so for some reason it’s not working.

I downloaded the relevant scid_vs_pc tar.gz file on my desk but I do not know which commands to use to install it

Welcome aboard!

You could download the PKGBUILD file from here:
https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/plain/PKGBUILD?h=scid_vs_pc

You may need to rename file scid*.gz to scid*.tgz.

Then run command to create a package:

    makepkg -cf

and if that goes without problems, then

    sudo pacman -U scid*.xz

Thanks manuel

I succeeded the download from sourceforge by using a VPN. It’s was not an AUR problem but a “political” one…

Thanks again for your help
