sed -i 's/configure/configure LIBS=-lpthread/' PKGBUILD, then try to build it manually.

Also, is this being built on some non-x86 architecture?

I added the option -lpthread both to CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS. Program compiles and installs. The user needs to be added to the video group besides setting the font path in .bash_profile.

Unchanged, it works in the tty, but under X you get:

ioctl VT_GETSTATE: Inappropriate ioctl for device (not a linux console?) ioctl VT_GETSTATE: Inappropriate ioctl for device

Same with sudo fim.

X support is not the default, a bit unexpected. For fim to work under X, the option --enable-sdl needs to be added in the ./configure part in PKGBUILD and the dependency sdl downloaded. After all this, fim works well under X and with the tty.

What libraries does LIBS include? It should include -lpthread, but if it does not, can you let me know if adding LIBS=-lpthread to the PKGBUILD's ./configure options works? Unfortunately, I can't reproduce this, so your help is appreciated.

Doesn't compile. Error message:

/usr/bin/ld: Browser.o: undefined reference to symbol 'pthread_create@@GLIBC_2.2.5' /usr/bin/ld: /usr/lib/ error adding symbols: DSO missing from command line

I tried adding '-std=c++11 -pthread' to the CXX_FLAGS declaration in the Makefile, but that didn't help. Update would be appreciated.

Please update the package. Also, please add the font-dependency: package 'terminus-font' is needed.

libexif missing form depends

Please add libexif to the dependencies

Although it doesn't compile even if I install libexif, it shows the following error message:

Regarding the message

==> To get fim to work after you've installed it, place the following export in
==> your ~/.profile file:
==> export FBFONT=/usr/share/kbd/consolefonts/ter-216n.psf.gz

This font is not provided by the package, and setting FBFONT as suggested results in the error message:

font "/usr/share/kbd/consolefonts/ter-216n.psf.gz" is not available

flex and bison are both in base-devel.

"Warning: Packages in the AUR assume the base-devel group is installed, and AUR packages will not list members of this group as dependencies even if the package cannot be built without them. Please ensure this group is installed before complaining about failed builds." - Arch wiki
