I am exeriencing the same problem as the others.
Could it be the opencv vrsion (I have opencv>4)?

Thank you for creating the package. It seems that dlib is dependency, which is missing. Do you agree with that?

Hiya, you seem to be missing a dependency on fmt?

Without the package I'm getting the following error;

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/howdy", line 109, in <module>
    import cli.test
  File "/usr/lib/security/howdy/cli/", line 9, in <module>
    import cv2
ImportError: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

pugixml needs to be added as a dependency to prevent the error in the previous comment. Manually install it to workaround the problem for now.

@boltgolt, sorry, but you did not answer comments a long time.

Interesting to see an orphan request filed here by @komex without emailing me first. If you have to time to update the package here just contact me and I'll add you as co-maintainer. I'm sorry that i don't monitor the AUR comments closely enough, I'm more active in the GitHub repo

@ahoneybun_76 they are effectively looking for a maintainer, see

Maybe you should post an issue on Github if you're feeling like taking over? We'd all be very grateful!

I'm checking in as it looks like you need a maintainer?

python-opencv is essential
