Most of the packages that “require” it are actually Electron apps that copy&pasted their dependency lists from elsewhere or failed to update them: Chromium (and subsequently Electron) haven’t been dependent on this for years.

If you want to help, you can ask the maintainers of all those apps if they really still need gconf.

None that I use still need it (spotify and hamsket-bin), and their maintainers removed the superfluous dependency.

If you got build issues, please make sure

  1. base-devel group is installed [1]
  2. you are not using a broken AUR helper like pacaur. See

If the build is still not working, use clean chroots [2] to build it.

When trying to install "tiddlydesktop" package, the termial output says:

error: gconf: signature from "TNE" is invalid :: File /var/cache/pacman/pkg/gconf-3.2.6+11+g07808097-10.4-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst is corrupted (invalid or corrupted package (PGP signature)). Do you want to delete it? [Y/n] n error: failed to commit transaction (invalid or corrupted package) Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

What to do Arch bros?

I get the following library dependency errors:

File "/usr/lib/GConf/2/" from package "gconf" is missing dependency ""
File "/usr/lib/GConf/2/" from package "gconf" is missing dependency ""

I worked around it by manually installing the openssl-1.1 AUR package. This looks like an old library dependency because openssl is up to major version 3.

Checking for required M4 macros...
  introspection.m4 not found

Please add gobject-introspection to the dependencies, possibly only needed for makedepends.

which: no in (...)
You need to install gnome-common from GNOME SVN and make
sure the script is in your $PATH.

Please add gnome-common to the dependencies, possibly only needed for makedepends.

The repository does not exist anymore. I do not know whether it was moved or deleted.

Update: The problem is solved.

I wouldn't say pacaur is broken, I installed it just fine. I just had to ensure gnome-common was installed first. Although, that comment is from 2 years ago.

If you're having issues installing and you are using pacaur, then double check the errors and make sure that it doesn't need to have another package installed, and install it.

Not working Hunk #5 succeeded at 3817 (offset 2 lines). patching file gconf/GConfX.idl Traceback (most recent call last): File "/home/pc/.local/bin/2to3", line 5, in <module> from cmd_2to3.main import main ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'cmd_2to3'

@basemax Did it fail to compile? The warnings are expected, since the project is deprecated and therefore hasn't been updated in a while
