I've already removed scores of spam from this page. The next guy who makes personal attacks or feels entitled to support without using the proper channels as kindly requested by the author will get his account suspended indefinitely.

Anyone asking for help using makepkg, e.g. "how do I import PGP keys", will find their comment silently deleted by Eschwartz. This is not the makepkg or general help forums, this is the aurman package page.

This is not the right place for reporting aurman bugs or request features, please use

If you do not want to register on GitHub for such things, I do not care from now on.

I am not going to respond to comments on this page, if they have nothing to do with the PKGBUILD.

tl;dr: Bugs and feature requests -> GitHub, PKGBUILD problems -> here, not going to answer comments if they have nothing to do with the PKGBUILD from now on

@mprom Why not just makepkg -sci as seen in the Wiki? :)

For anyone arriving here because they've started receiving the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/aurman", line 6, in <module>
    from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
  File "/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 3095, in <module>

    raise DistributionNotFound(req, requirers)
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'aurman==2.17' distribution was not found and is required by the application

This is because Python released a major new update, which you installed, and thus all python packages, including aurman, need to be rebuilt to be able to work again.

To fix this, download the snapshot from the link in the Package Actions above, cd to the unzipped directory and do old-school AUR installation dance of makepkg -Acs followed by sudo pacman -U aurman-

After that, aurman should work again.

i just want to thank polygamma for this helper

Eschwartz commented on 2018-07-09 17:15

That's got nothing to do with aurman.

dawcek commented on 2018-07-09 16:54

Thanks @Eschwartz. I set this option like you suggested. There is error related to that as normal user I cannot write anything in system directory /var/cache/pacman/pkg/

Eschwartz commented on 2018-07-09 15:43

makepkg itself supports PKGDEST, see the makepkg.conf(5) manpage.

dawcek commented on 2018-07-09 15:28

Hello everyone. May you tell me if there possibility automatically move built package to main packages cache(/var/cache/pacman/pkg) ?? Thanks in advance for your response.

polygamma commented on 2018-06-24 13:07

aurman depends on "expac" again.

Eschwartz commented on 2018-06-24 07:21

Heads up -- expac 9 has now been tagged as a stable release.

Morganamilo commented on 2018-06-24 02:25

@Eschwartz thanks for clearing that up, I'd say add the r, epoch or not. Not that big of a deal though obviously, if it's not worth the effort then whatever.
