I've got a few notes concerning your PKGBUILD:

* I'd always use sha512sums, even if the local files are downloaded with the PKGBUILD.

* You are using install for the directories, but not for the files. You can combine this in a single call with proper permissions

* I've always seen PKGBUILDS with ${variables} instead of just $variables. Thats just saver I think.

* I am not sure if the autostart script is needed. But if so, You do not need to cd into the directory where the script is, if i am not totally wrong. And also you should test the connection to microsoft/bing, as it will download from there. If bing is inreachable but google not, this doesnt help. So that all I'd test. And on top of that I suggest to add those scripts to the upstream and not to this PKGBUILD. Open a PR and see if the developer is willing to merge your ideas.

Thank you for taking the time :)

Hello ! Could you add bc as a dependency for the package please ? It seems to be required

@Colibris, I changed the network availability check no more than 3 times. :)

This package makes a process that continuously downloads 700 KiB/s.

This may be a problem when someone is on their cellular data, which may happen in the train or, in my case, when I use my phone instead of my university wifi because of bad reception or when I'm unable to use my VPN.

I think you should change it for a regular check every 23 minutes, for example.

I'll upvote your package when you'll have solved this problem.
