@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. Gottcode.org 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...

@gottcode The PKGBUILD includes an install file that is not provided with the sources. Hence attempting to build this package is returning the error:

==> focuswriter dependencies:
- qt5-base (already installed)
- qt5-multimedia (already installed)
- hunspell (already installed)


==> Continue building focuswriter ? [Y/n]

Had to reinstall focuswriter to get it to start after the update of hunspell from 1.3.4 to 1.4.1. Just a heads up!

@petres I have fixed the missing header include in release 1.5.4.1; it builds correctly for me with Qt 5.5 now.

@orschiro You're weclome!

It should be using its icon for the window switcher; it does in KDE and Xfce. I don't use Openbox so I have never tested that before; I will look into it.
