@Freso Yes, you can't currently compile ds9 with -Werror=format-security flag. It would be a nice feature, but I can't provide a quick fix atm. It is probably better if you notify the developer: Any volunteers here are also appreciated.

I’m getting an error building ds9:

colorbar/cbgrid.C:200:47: error: format not a string literal and no format arguments [-Werror=format-security]
  200 |   plot = astPlot(frameSet, gbox, pbox, option_);

@alastair87 Yes, you can't compile the newer version simply editing the PKGBUILD this case. Patience!

Modifying the PKGBUILD to use the sources for v8.2.1 leads to the following error:
