Before trying to build and install grub-customizer please make sure to fulfill the AUR requirements by reading, understanding and applying:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_User_Repository
https://www.archlinux.org/pacman/pacman.conf.5.html#_options (especially LocalFileSigLevel)
https://www.archlinux.org/pacman/pacman.conf.5.html#_package_and_database_signature_checking_a_id_sc_a

Choose a proper AUR helper (like pacaur), if you must, but when error reporting I will always assume, you have used makepkg to build this package!

@dvzrv: Odd, could've sworn my SigLevel was Optional and all I had added was DatabaseNever because the wget option shows that it tries to download the db.sig files. I don't remember changing it to Required. o_O Anyways, installed fine now.

@Sachiko: Please read `man 5 pacman.conf` (especially about the option "LocalFileSigLevel" and the section "Package And Database Signature Checking").
Packages built by yourself are always local.

Sadly for me, I keep getting this error upon trying to install the built package. It builds fine. Just can't install it.

Says it's missing the required signature. And yes, my GPG keys are all current as well.

@dvzrv: I don't know what was wrong, I tested it now and it works. Sorry! :)

@aznan: Thanks for the hint!
pkg-config should be installed already though, because it is in base-devel.
Please read: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_User_Repository#Installing_packages

grub-customizer builds just fine.

@PhotonX: In which desktop environment do you start grub-customizer?
You need some kind of polkit integration to be prompted for your user password before the application launches. gksu is actually not needed (but can be used).
I'm using lxpolkit under qtile/awesome for it, as those window managers don't offer a polkit integration themselves.
This way lxpolkit polls for my password once I want to start grub-customizer.

I'v solved gtkmm.h problem by using this command

pkg-config --cflags --libs gtkmm-3.0

but make sure you have installed pkg-config first:

sudo pacman -S pkg-config

hope it can help.

Sorry for not replying, the building problem disappeared at some point. However, there is another little annoyance: Starting it fails with

$ grub-customizer
Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused

(grub-customizer:10976): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:

But when starting with gksu, everything works fine. In both cases there is a password query dialogue, but starting only works if calling gksu manually.
