@yochananmarqos I've just fixed it, thanks for reporting.

Since both xdg and pyxdg provides import xdg and python-pyxdg already existed, I solved it by adding a patch to the import in hotdoc and bundle xdg.

It seems we have a little issue. This wants xdg, but the Arch python-pyxdg package also provides python-xdg.

you need to add "json-glib" to the make dependencies

you need to add "git" to makedepends

I have locally built version 0.8.103 adding some modifications to the PKGBUILD, which you can find updated at

I needed to add some dependencies: python-cchardet, python-dbus-deviation, python-decorator, python-networkx-1.11, python-pkgconfig-1.1.0, and python-setuptools. For building, cmake and flex are needed to build the C support module. Also, I have pushed PKGBUILDs for the missing packages to the AUR.

Works for me now.

The latest 0.8.101 is broken:

Fetched in submodule path 'cmark', but it did not contain 040fca843a1f62a1007b6c8d883aab19cc83efda. Direct fetching of that commit failed.

I am going to open a bug with upstream.
