How to submit a PKGBUILD to AUR

Original Post by pablokal » Fri May 28, 2010 12:56 pm
Was asked to upload the MadPablo Openbox theme to AUR.
Didn't have a clue. Here is how I did it.

What you have to do.
Make the package.
What I had to do for this was to compress the usr/share/themes/madpablo/openbox-3 folder;
this was madpablo.tar.bz2
and make it available online: upload it to; used gompload for that.
Result is a downloadlink at:
Had to md5sum the madpablo.tar.bz2
Result: f8bd9530b5ae503cb773dfa66a1d51d0

Now I can edit a text file with the name PKGBUILD :

    # Contributor: Pablo

        pkgdesc="MadPablo OpenBox Theme"

        build() {
        install -d ${pkgdir}/usr/share/themes/
        cp -r ${srcdir}/madpablo ${pkgdir}/usr/share/themes/ || return 1

The url is provided as link for more info about the theme: *now only via Google cache

pkgver=20100528 just is the date of doing this.

Now I have to make a folder openbox-madpablo-theme
and put only the PKGBUILD in it and compress this to

Now I have to register at
And upload the openbox-madpablo-theme.tar.gz file and give a comment if needed.

This is the result:
