OK, got it to work. In principle there is nothing wrong with artha itself but now the compilation of WordNet requires to be done using

./configure --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man CFLAGS=-fPIC CXXFLAGS=-fPIC

instead of just

./configure --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man

Cheers.

Artha is located in the Arch Users Repository, AUR, this means it is not officially supported but provided by the community instead. Artha and any other package to be used with ArchLinux is better to be handled by the package manager pacman.

You can find the details on how to install any package from the AUR here:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_User_Repository#Installing_packages

long story short: - clone the installation files - compile - install locally compiled package.

There are many AUR helpers out there but the steps should be reasonably clear.

Hope this helps.

Having moved from a deb-based Linux distribution to an Arch based system due to overheating problems on my Dell laptop (a known issue), I am not accustomed with the ARCH method of installing an application such as Artha. I have done some reading and have tried various methods, but am not able to successfully install the Artha application. Would it be possible to provide more detailed steps in order to succeed?

Please use sha256 instead of md5.

Thank you for notify me.

wordnet package got split (wordnet-common, -cli and -tk), so dependencies need to be updated

@a36233 Did you check that in principle there is nothing wrong with artha itself but now the compilation of WordNet requires to be done using

./configure --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man CFLAGS=-fPIC CXXFLAGS=-fPIC

instead of just

./configure --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man

Let me know whether this solves the issue.
