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 https://github.com/E5ten/pacaur/issues/14.

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

Does not build unless you install glib2-devel manually before

New makedepend glib2-devel is missing.

Hi, Build fails for me too :

Build fails for me in clean chroot now, it worked around 2-4 weeks ago.

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

error: gconf: signature from "TNE tne@garudalinux.org" 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/libgconfbackend-evoldap.so" from package "gconf" is missing dependency "libssl.so.1.1"
File "/usr/lib/GConf/2/libgconfbackend-evoldap.so" from package "gconf" is missing dependency "libcrypto.so.1.1"

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.
