What should I do? I need this program for my class.

Fix the PKGBUILD as it is currently apparently wrong with dead links to source (from quick look, change the pkgver to latest which seems to be 20210609 (and change the md5sums to skip).

PS: I’m not an expert but these PKGBUILD for both packages (pseint and pseint-bin) seem horrible (it copies files directly in the system, at least it doesn’t use the conventional way other packages follow), and both provide the same thing, the binaries.

//EDIT: OR… go to their website and follow instructions… I don’t speak spanish but you don’t need to ‘install’ it… PSeInt
Extract the folder to a proper place in your home, and execute the binary pseint


Thanks! It worked!
