The package is broken since python2-pyqt is built without QtWebKit. It might still work with the python2-pyqt4-qtwebkit package in the AUR, but I'm not going to spend my time on it. Disowning if somebody is interested in it.

Come on, disown it if you cannot be arsed to update it.

New working PKGBUILD (md5sum changed and python2-simplejson replaces python-simplejson):

looks like we have to replace "python-simplejson" with "python2-simplejson"

please update or leave this package!

I can confirm that the PKGBUILD from bal builds cleanly and runs. Thanks!

python-pyicu is flagged out of date; not installing and building here.

I'm sorry to say that I'm disowning this package. I haven't used Aarddict in a while, and I don't have the time to maintain the PKGBUILD when I don't even have it installed myself. This is nothing against Aarddict, which is an awesome application. If someone wants to pick this up, it shouldn't be too much work.

I have not had time (what with exams) to do proper QA on this PKGBUILD (especially dependencies, as I'm not familiar with Python packages on Arch). However, I've left this a long time, and I've received three or four personal e-mails as well as a few auto-nag e-mails from the AUR, and as it does build and run, I figured I should post it here. If you discover an error, please let me know, and I will attend to it promptly. Thanks,
