the package can't be compiled successfully due to two things:
1.deprecated gtk2 functions

/usr/include/gtk-2.0/gtk/gtktypeutils.h:236:1: error: ‘GTypeDebugFlags’ is deprecated [-Werror=deprecated-declarations]
/usr/include/gtk-2.0/gtk/gtktooltips.h:73:3: error: ‘GTimeVal’ is deprecated: Use 'GDateTime' instead [-Werror=deprecated-declarations]

2.unused definition for struct _plugin_instance *stam; in src/fbpanel-7.0/panel/plugin.h, due to that linker generates error:

/usr/bin/ld: plugin.o:(.bss+0x0): multiple definition of `stam'; panel.o:(.bss+0x20): first defined here

here is dirty hack: add these two lines to the PKGBUILD section prepare after a line cd "$srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver":

sed -i 's/\-Werror//' .config/
sed -i 's/struct\ \_plugin_instance \*stam\;//' panel/plugin.h

the first line changes compiler flags to not generate error if deprecated functions are used.
Second line removes unused definition which confuses linker.
good luck!

P.S. the same solution is for fbpanel-git

Hi, on my machine the version obviously from 2017 still works, at least with the features I'm using.

$ grep fbpanel /var/log/pacman.log | grep upgraded | tail -1
[2017-09-06 20:34] [ALPM] upgraded fbpanel (7.0-1 -> 7.0-2)

My apologies, I was mistaken, you cannot install this version per downgrade. It seems to get it from my packages cache. You might need to use the Historical Archive. Take a look at this. You could install it by running pacman. You don't need to (re)move a package from cache, I needed to do it, to be able to download the package and the signature.

$ sudo mv -i /var/cache/pacman/pkg/fbpanel-7.0-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz /usr/src/ 
$ sudo pacman -U

Please, refrain from commenting an issue, when using an AUR helper and consider to post the output of makepkg as code instead of text. However, I can confirm the issue.

$ sudo pacman -Syu
$ wget -q && tar xf fbpanel.tar.gz && cd fbpanel && makepkg -s

How to fix this ?

I think there was a bigger cleanup of orphaned ommunity packages

Hi, just out of curiosity, why moved the package from community to AUR?
