This package follows the latest upstream release. Please bug upstream about releasing version 10 and I'll happily update the package then.

2jazztickets python2-dnspython added

2gbabin python2-xdg added

Please add python2-dnspython to dependencies as indicated in the requirements.txt file in the source repository.

Also, this package includes /usr/bin/linkchecker-gui which seems weird since there is a separate linkchecker-gui package.

Finally, this package should probably be named linkchecker-git.

Appart from that, it works, so thank !

Add python2-xdg to dependencies

Needs a dependency to `pyxdg`:

You must be missing something because when building in a chroot, I get the following fail:

Also, per this commit [0] fixing this issue [1], LinkChecker won't work unless you have `python2-requests<2.15`.

The project was divided into two parts:
1. linkchecker (Command line version)
2. linkchecker-gui (GUI version)

In AUR present both versions.

According to this bug

the project moved to

Any chance to get an updated version?

The Icon listed in the desktop launcher is a bad link, could you add a patch to correct the link?

I've noted the problem over here:

michalzuber commented on 2016-07-05 06:41

Made a patch for the package
Thanks @Sathors for the solution
