@gottcode it worked now. It wasn't downloading all the files properly before, but now it did. For me it seems like a remote issue. When pacman prompted for the installation, the size of install was 0.00 Kb, but now it says 7.xx Mb.

@neo-alquimista I just tested that, and it works fine for me. Is it not downloading the source code for you? Have you set the download helper to something that doesn't handle HTTPS?

@gottcode I extract the snapshot, run 'makepkg -s' in the same folder and install it with sudo pacman -U 'packagename.tar.xz'. Yes, I have base-devel installed. I tried this many times in different installs and also in my other laptop.

@neo-alquimista How are you building it? It builds correctly for me by doing 'makepkg -s'. Do you have base-devel installed?

I have a problem. It's not building successfully. The final product doesn't contain any folders with relevant files in it. It's just .BUILDINFO, .MTREE and .PKGINFO. When installing it with pacman -U (...), pacman later reports it is installed but no shortcut is created in menus and it won't run via terminal. All dependencies are already installed.

@ChokesMcGee It redirects correctly for me and therefore installs work just fine, but I have changed the URL to be HTTPS to remove the redirect.

Looks like the source URL needs to be updated. cuts off plain http downloads, so installs are coming back with a 403. Changing it to https makes everything work fine.

Since new hunspell in extra (1.5.4), focuswriter had to be rebuild.

@gottcode Sorry about bothering you with that error. I realized I had not installed the base-devel packages and that's why the program would not compile. After the installation of devel packages, everything went smoothly and it built correctly. Thanks for focuswriter, I love it.

@Sodalite Hunspell is in the official repos of Arch Linux, and required by quite a few packages (even Firefox!). I'm at a loss as to how you can't find it, or not have it on your system already...
