I also see now that the current listed maintainer, Sebastian209, has

So if nobody confirms any response from the other emails, a request for "disown" should be made.

Well it's now 2 months since this (super important) PKGBUILD hasnt been updated.


"The email account that you tried to reach does not exist."

I'm asssuming that you are talking about the emails listed in the PKGBUILD

# Maintainer: Sergej Pupykin <>
# Contributor: Dag Odenhall <>
# Contributor: Grigorios Bouzakis <>

And that you tried to contact them by email. Am I correct ?

But it doesnt seem that the maintainer


is listed there. It should, but it is not there. And he has set his email to invisible.

If there is no response, then a request should be made to disown this PKGBUILD.

So that someone that can take good care of it can adopt it.

Is anyone else interested in maintaining this PKGBUILD ?

Upstream released version 6.4 one month ago:

The PKGBUILD sais "Contributor: Grigorios Bouzakis", but sais: "The email account that you tried to reach does not exist."

I've been running dwm for like, 10 years?, in raspberry pis and chromebooks.

Only now noticed

arch=('i686' 'x86_64')

Please change it to

arch=('i686' 'x86_64' 'arm' 'armv7h' 'armv6h' 'aarch64')

Thanks in advance.

Depends On      : libx11  libxinerama  libxft
Depends On      : libx11  libxinerama  libxft  freetype2  st  dmenu

Quick question, why the difference ?

I'm not 100% sure, and can't find it browsing the dwm site. Is dwm really still ("officially") dependent on "st" and "dmenu" ? Or is just a "Depends On" tag that needs to be corrected, either in "dwm" or "dwm-git" ?

PS: Tip, there is now an official Arch package called "bemenu" that works BOTH on the console and X/Wayland. Very nice alternative to dmenu.

@thiagowfx Done!, Sorry for taking some time in doing so.

This package does not need to provide nor conflict dwm-git

+1 - dwm-git package should provide and conflict with dwm, but dwm does not need to (and should not) provide dwm-git.
