Hi Paddlaren,

Thank you for your comment. I must admit it has been a while since I last used archi. I am not a developer of this package and only needed it for a school project a while back. I do test whether the programs actually runs but I don't test it extensively.

I will remove webkitgtk from the dependencies and set it as an optional dependency.

Sadly Archi's Hints browser wont work with the version of webkit-gtk that is in the PKGBUILD. One need to use instead. I downloaded a pre-compiled version from: and do now have the Hints view working. Al other options I tested, including the one in PKGBUILD did not render a working Hints browser.

Also relevant, given that it is quite an effort to compile webkit-gtk, it is ONLY used for the Hints view. In all other aspects I have come across Archi works perfectly without webkit-gtk installed.

Sadly the one that works is orphan :(

Update worked fine now, thanks! Didn't have to delete anything manually either.

Fixed the checksum mismatch. Please remove the origional source files and PKGBUILD and try again.

Archi 3.3.1 was released a while ago, I never got around to updating the PKGBUILD. Busy with work.

Ok, I messed up. I forgot to update the .SRCINFO file. Now there are a lot more commits then necessary. Sorry about that.

Tried installing. Got:
Archi-lnx32_64-3.3.0.tar.gz failed validity check.
