If you are having problems installing this package due to signature verification, please run the below before running makepkg:

gpg --recv-keys --keyserver hkp:// 1EB2638FF56C0C53

If makepkg still complains after this:

1) Ensure you're using makepkg, and not some wrapper.
2) Ensure you don't have GNUPGHOME set in /etc/makepkg.conf or ~/.makepkg.conf, or that the value of GNUGPHOME in makepkg.conf matches that which you've run the above gpg command with.
3) Ensure that the tarball you downloaded matches the md5sums in the PKGBUILD.

If you have problems locating pod2man during the build, please figure out where your PATH is being overridden. /etc/profile.d/ from the perl package will ensure that pod2man is in your PATH.

Kindly do not do the following because of failures in source tarball verification:

1) Complain that the package is broken.
2) Mark the package out of date.

Due to the amount of spam I receive, I've been forced to disable notifications for this package.

Two things:

1. Falconindy is no longer subscibed to the comments as you can see in the stickied comment.

2. Cower is provided by Arch Linux ARM itself, you can find it in the AUR repo. There is no reason to build it yourself, or just use the ArchARM PKGBUILD if you really want to.

For ArchLinuxARM please change "arch" to "any".

Another vote for the addition of 'aarch64' and 'armv7h', they both work perfectly.

@falconindy: I think it is safe to assume, that this package is

That makes it more easily installable on ARM, as well.

@Alpha's solution didn't work for me. I used:
gpg --recv-keys 1EB2638FF56C0C53

Just run this command and all problems will be solved. I had to surf hours for this solution:

curl "" -o - | gpg --import

P.S sometimes you won't get any result because of is down.

Was getting errors on the gpg command, this site shows that key is revoked.

or maybe I'm reading it wrong, but it has a date of 2016-08-16.

However, using the cower-git package did work for me.

Taijian, it's already on alarm's official repos :-)

Do you think it would be possible to amend the $arch for this package by adding 'aarch64' / possibly setting it to 'any'?

Reason: I'm successfully running it on aarch64 with ArchLinuxARM and it is slightly annoying to have to remember to edit the PKGBUILD on every install on a new device...

gpg --search-keys 1EB2638FF56C0C53
