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

@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

Thanks for the tip zephrax, I haven't encountered any problem downloading from the FTP source, but if other people encounter the same issue that can prove useful.

I'm keeping the FTP source in the PKGBUILD, at least for now, simply because this is the one used in the ncurses [1] and lib32-ncurses [2] packages.
