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

Can anyone get notifications to work? I see no option for it at all, though both requirements are met.

Thanks for the tip schivmeister, pkgrel-bumped.

gnome-utils provides a dictionary, goldendict etc. But i have yet to find a dictionary/thesaurus as elegant as artha.

Use options=(!emptydirs) instead.

Btw is there any other alternative offline dictionary? If not, I hope to bring this into [community] (provided wordnet does not forbid redistribution).

Bumped to rel-2: added optional dependencies, and empty directory fix (thanks to larryhaja)

Hi, thanks for updating the PKGBUILD. I noticed that there are 2 empty directories in the package. I'm not sure why. The directories are /usr/lib and /usr/include. I added the following line at the end of the PKGBUILD to delete any empty directories.

find $pkgdir -depth -type d -empty -exec rm -rf {} \;
