I get a 404 when I try to install. It seems that there is no

However it seems that there is both a 20161229 and a 20170111 version available.

This package also depends on perl-cgi.

Without, the CGI throws this error message:
Error: Can't locate in @INC (you may need to install the CGI module) (@INC contains: ...) at (eval 53) line 2. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at (eval 53) line 2.

Hey! I'd like to thank you for raising back perl-cgi-formbuilder from the dead. I would have struggled to do so myself.
I just launched an ikiwiki installation and it all went smoothly, no error encountered while building the package and it's dependencies. Thumbs up!

kritztopf commented on 2015-10-05 15:01

There is: create it yourself :) That's what I did now, found some time to do it. It install just fine, but the ikiwiki installation fails.

I'm not doing a lot of stuff with ikiwiki, so maybe one of you has an idea how to handle that checking error?

It's this error:
Unescaped left brace in regex is deprecated, passed through in regex; marked by <-- HERE in m/^\$ENV{ <-- HERE PATH}="(.*)";/ at ./pm_filter line 31.

Is there a workaround for perl-cgi-formbuilder missing from AUR?

Francois_B commented on 2015-09-14 00:51

perl-cgi-formbuilder is not available I think.

edrex commented on 2015-08-25 15:22

For anyone hitting a build error when upgrading, you likely need to reinstall perl-yaml-libyaml from AUR. It needs to be rebuilt for newest perl.

alkino commented on 2015-08-20 22:01

perl-cgi-formbuilder is not in AUR

eigengrau commented on 2015-07-29 12:09

This also seems to depend on perl-cgi.

eigengrau commented on 2015-07-29 11:53

The script ikiwiki-update-wikilist is supposed to be installed SUID root; otherwise, ikiwiki will yield the following:

ikiwiki-update-wikilist: cannot write to /etc/ikiwiki/wikilist
** Failed to add you to the system wikilist file.
** (Probably ikiwiki-update-wikilist is not SUID root.)
** Your wiki will not be automatically updated when ikiwiki is upgraded.

eigengrau commented on 2015-06-02 11:07

The websetup module, which enabled in the default config, also seems to require the perl-xml-writer package.

santiago commented on 2015-05-20 11:00

Another update in the ikiwiki version is needed:

raphix commented on 2014-11-06 12:31

Apparently, some dependencies are not well handled. I had to go on the ikiwiki install page ( and execute as root:

# PERL5LIB=`pwd` PERL_MM_USE_DEFAULT=1 perl -MCPAN -e 'CPAN::Shell->install("Bundle::IkiWiki")'

# PERL5LIB=`pwd` PERL_MM_USE_DEFAULT=1 perl -MCPAN -e 'CPAN::Shell->install("Bundle::IkiWiki::Extras")'

Then, it compiled. Otherwise, there was a problem with the (generated) makefile.

raphix commented on 2014-11-06 10:58

I get several (OK) lines like
./pm_filter /usr 3.20141016 /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl <IkiWiki/Setup/ >blib/lib/IkiWiki/Setup/

So, it does not compile. My system is up-to-date, what should I do?

current version is 3.20140613 with md5sum 285cac91c9f3af3d1c2066c968d4d07d

torpe23 commented on 2014-05-02 09:01

Would it be possible to add '/etc/ikiwiki/wikilist' as a backup file, so it's not erased when upgrading the package? Cause the idea of this file is to contain which ikiwiki instances should be regenerated after an upgrade, so if the file is erased, we kind of miss the point of it!

You just need to add in the PKGBUILD file:

ACodispo commented on 2014-03-31 16:15

Source has updated again:

ACodispo commented on 2014-02-04 20:48

The source file is now ikiwiki_3.20140125.

jefdaj commented on 2013-12-12 23:15

Current source file is ikiwiki_3.20130904.1.tar.gz, needs version + md5sum updated.

lestb commented on 2013-06-16 17:20

@Franek, maybe you could just move the binary from /usr/sbin to /usr/bin since the former is a symlink anyway...

Franek commented on 2013-06-06 15:11

At the moment, this package places one binary (ikiwiki-mass-rebuild) in /usr/sbin, which is in conflict with the new Arch policy* of having all binaries in /usr/bin. This should be fixed. I, however, do not know how to do so.

blogspam could be added as optional dependency:

kmshanah commented on 2013-02-14 21:59

Looks like another new release came out (ikiwiki_3.20130212.tar.gz). Just updating version number and checksum in the PKGBUILD seems to have worked for me.

Anonymous comment on 2012-09-20 19:39

Updated package thanks to Xstary. Disowning package.

There is a new version: 3.20120629
md5: ce4ce3f9d1f1bbf2f1173fd3fd5b3dc0

Changing URL and checksum in PKGBUILD worked for me.

Updated package with Franek's PKGBUILD. Thanks!

Franek commented on 2012-06-24 23:18

Updated PKGBUILD for version 3.20120516:

mmq commented on 2012-06-22 03:06

This (version 3.20120516 anyway) requires a perl-yaml-libyaml newer than 0.35 (don't know what version exactly, just know 0.35-1 didn't work for me, 0.38-2 works). Anybody having trouble building, don't forget to update.

Adopted, updated and orphaned again... Not sure if I will use it, but I just wanted to try with the latest version.

Anonymous comment on 2011-12-03 13:23

Debian has removed the source package from the pool and replaced it with a newer version, but the old source package can still be found here:

The latest available version is 3.20110328. Could you please update this package?

torpe23: updated, thanks.

torpe23 commented on 2011-01-17 09:42

Apparently, last version of perl has removed ikiwiki's path from @INC (the used path was already deprecated : /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/current/). See

For ikiwiki to be correctly installed, the PKGBUILD must be changed. I simply did:

tychoish commented on 2010-11-03 17:17

In order to have ikiwiki's RST plugin work post-python2/python
upgrade, run this at the end of the build function to update the
shebang with python 2. When docutils updates to python3, we can remove
this, until then, it needs to happen :)

Peti: Added

Anonymous comment on 2010-05-03 10:46

Ikiwiki requires perl-rpc-xml for supporting plugins written in languages other than Perl, i.e. the RST plugin that's included in the distribution won't work. Could you please add that module as a dependency?
