DOH! Thanks lostkhaos!

@andreab82 I believe that he just selected a server at random from the pool (perhaps one closeby to himself). You can use the command without specifying a keyserver in particular and the command will still work just fine (e.g. gpg --recv-keys [thekeyyouwant])

@Ralf_Mardorf I think your responses are pretty uncalled for. AUR comments aren't a support channel, sure, but it was a simple question with a simple answer. Your tone is one of the things that make people think Arch users are elitist jerks; telling someone to choose a different distro over a simple missing key is a bit dramatic.

If you want to stay with Arch Linux, you need to do some research on your own.

Don't delete your comments, if you ask me to reply to your comments. Next time get your hands dirty, before you post a request.

Please stop recommending idiotic non-solutions such as "--skippgpcheck".
The error messages informs you what to do. Inside the PKGBUILD you'll find this:


So one of several possibilities is running

gpg --keyserver hkp:// --recv-keys 58E0C111E39F5408C5D3EC76C1A60EACE707FDA5

to solve the issue. There are other ways to get the key, too.
If you need to spam the AUR comments with such a non-issue, then Arch Linux is not the appropriate Linux distribution for you. Please use another distro.

* Upgrade to 2.7.
* Sync with ABS PKGBUILD.
* Get patches from archfan.

Patches for 2.6.5 exist. You just haven't looked hard enough. ;)

.install file suggests to install lib32-freetype2-infinality, but there is no such package.

dobo commented on 2016-08-23 16:02

I can't update because ultimate patches aren't ready yet for 2.6.5.

Ralf_Mardorf commented on 2016-05-11 02:35

The answer to your question is given by the comments.

Perhaps I'm mistaken, since mareex isn't mentioned by the latest PKGBUILD.

Ralf_Mardorf commented on 2016-02-16 20:40

For your information, infinality.install mentions lib32-freetype2-infinality-ultimate, but no package with this name is available.

mareex commented on 2016-02-17 08:49

I changed this to lib32-freetype2-infinality (removed "ultimate" at the end). Although the package does not exist, I think someone should create it. I am on arm. So I cannot test that. Some one could just take these PKGBUILDS:
