Make sure you have the multilib-devel group installed before reporting issues while building the package. I will not add it as a makedepends because it is not a makedepends for lib32-ncurses5 either. See

If anyone is still having trouble getting used to PGP signing, make sure to add the key mentioned in the PKGBUILD:
$ gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 702353E0F7E48EDB

@Corax a friend of mine tested the same page and it showed up for him as well, though I got a 404 through my browser and curl. Perhaps this has to do with the servers CDN?

@yorickr: this is really weird, this very page lists ncurses-6.0-20170527.tgz for me... I don't think using another (close) version will cause you any major trouble though.

The mirror used by lib32-ncurses ( appears to not have version 20170527 available. I'm getting errors trying to install this package (as the mirror used by this package also doesn't have that version available).

I've changed _pkgver locally to 6.0-20170603 which makes it install without issue but I'm uncertain if there are any major changes between these two versions.

@jmsq: I unflagged the package because I want to keep it in sync with lib32-ncurses, which is still on 6.0-20170527. Isn't the mirror link working for you?

@ibrokemypie @nathanchance Thanks for the heads-up. The other ncurses packages are no longer using the FTP server source. I've pulled in the latest changes from lib32-ncurses (6.0+20170527-1), including the new source URL.

It now appears the mirror is down, I had to revert back to the address in order to get it to install.

ibrokemypie commented on 2017-08-07 07:39

needed the line source=(${_pkgbasename}/${_pkgbasename}-${pkgver}.tar.gz{,.asc})
as the current source is down for me

For people still having the problem, you guys can also download the key from

just copy the text starting from -----BEGIN PGP PUBLIC KEY BLOCK-----
and save it in a file, say 'key'

then import it using

gpg --import key

@krompus Ah yes good point, I have "keyserver" in my ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf so I didn't need to pass --keyserver explicitly. I'll modify the pinned comment, thanks :)

krompus commented on 2016-09-29 06:16

I just tried adding the keys as mentioned below, but I got "no keyserver available". Likely something to do with my ~/.gnupg/gpg/conf but oh well.

If you get the same thing, try this:

$ gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 702353E0F7E48EDB
