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

no, i delete .asc file and edit pkgbuild =)

Not sure what the problem is, did you try adding the key at all?...
$ gpg --recv-keys 702353E0F7E48EDB

Will need to correct ncurses-6.0.tar.gz.asc and signature

binaryshadow commented on 2016-08-17 10:15

need add pgp key?

ncurses-6.0.tar.gz... FAILURE (unknown open key 702353E0F7E48EDB)
==> ERROR: One or more PGP signatures can't be checked!
==> ERROR: Makepkg couldn't collect lib32-ncurses5-compat-libs.

@mky: indeed, this is consistent with the other ncurses packages. Hopefully by now people have got used to adding keys!

mky commented on 2016-08-04 02:55

To add the corresponding key, still need to receieve the keys:
gpg --recv-keys F7E48EDB

After that, it works fine!

@tinxy: done in the latest rel (-4), thanks for pointing that out.

-4 also provides a libtinfo symlink, like ncurses5-compat-libs. This was a good move, having a separate package for a symlink is kind of overkill.

Please add pgp verification as seen in:

Just adopted the package. I fixed outstanding issues and cleaned up the PKGBUILD, take a look at the last commit for more info.

This one function works (must be ncurse 6 installed already), at least android-sdk goes:



package() {
cd ${srcdir}/ncursesw-build
make install
install -dm755 ${pkgdir}/usr/lib32

# non-widec compatibility libraries
cd ${srcdir}/ncurses-build
for lib in ncurses form panel menu; do
install -Dm755 lib/lib${lib}.so.${_compatpkgver} ${pkgdir}/usr/lib32/lib${lib}.so.${_compatpkgver}
ln -s lib${lib}.so.${_compatpkgver} ${pkgdir}/usr/lib32/lib${lib}.so.5

rm -rf "${pkgdir}"/usr/{include,share,bin}
mkdir -p "$pkgdir/usr/share/licenses"
ln -s $_pkgbasename "$pkgdir/usr/share/licenses/$pkgname"
cd $pkgdir/usr/lib32/
find . -iname "*.so" -delete && find . -iname "*.a" -delete
