WineGUI 2.0 instal -- I'm so confused

Hey there, it’s me again! XD

I’m trying to update WineGUI. It’s not published in the aur anymore, so I have to do it manually, and I’m thoroughly confused. The doesn’t have familiar install instructions, so would anyone be able to possibly get me headed in the right direction with this? Much appreciated, thank you so much! hugs! :slight_smile:

I went ahead and converted the .deb package using debtap and following this tutorial:

Still I REALLY want to know how to do it without converting another package. The source code is there. Oh the burning desire to know what I don’t know lol! :laughing:

Umm, are you sure about that?

I should have specified “ver 2.0” lol, 1.9.x is out of date

Look at the “Latest Comments” on the page and there are simple instructions for updating to the current version - change 2 things in the PKBUILD.

Yes I see those comments. I’ve Google’d where PKGBUILD files are kept, and I verified winegui has one.

All of the other coments list the pkgver and a sha256sums like:


but the latest one seems to have a hash below that. Do I put in that second hash just like it’s listed in the comments? Like so? :


And btw, 2.0 is the latest version:

That comment isn’t written very clearly, but if you look at the previous comment, you’ll see that what it’s telling you to do is change the sha256sum from the earlier version to the latest, which is the sum not listed in parenthesis (again, it’s not written very clearly).

So you’ll enter the line:


  1. Download a copy of the PKGBUILD from the AUR and put it in a directory.
  2. cd into that directory
  3. Edit the PKGBUILD and change the version to the version you want to install
  4. Run updpkgsums
  5. Run makepkg -si

In the comments of the aur page, the latest comment is showing 2 hashes:


But again, does that even matter since the official home gitlab page of that app is showing that version 2 is the current one?

The updpkgsums command automatically updates that value.

Did you try following my instructions above?
