Installing xmind-zen from AUR.

Should all program files in the AUR install without incidence? In this case I have tried installing xmind-zen and came up with this (error):

Building xmind-zen...
==> Making package: xmind-zen 20190703-1 (Fri 12 Jul 2019 09:40:54 AM EDT)
==> Checking runtime dependencies...

index.html ... Skipped
XMind.desktop ... Skipped
XMind.png ... Skipped
xmind.xml ... Skipped
==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

Is this because the package is extention .rpm? If so is there any way to get the install working?

No, it is becasue they offer unversioned packages, file is always called XMind-ZEN-for-Linux-64bit.rpm and when they update the package the hash check in the pkgbuild fails

the procedure is like this Can not install XDM from Pamac replacing xdm with xmind-zen

or like mbb posted below

That error means the source has been updated but the PKGBUILD hasn't. So the validation check fails. You need to download the PKGBUILD to a directory of your choice:


Then unpack it:

tar -xf xmind-zen.tar.gz

Then enter that folder and update the checksums:

cd xmind-zen

Then build and install the package:

makepkg -si

Then you should go to the AUR page and post a comment or flag it out-of-date so the maintainer knows the package needs to be updated.


I tried to built it and is not failing for me, likely your download has been interrupted
