You can fix the missing PGP key from the author by doing gpg --recv-keys BD84DE71F493DF6814B0167254EDC91609BC9183 to download it from the default keyserver and to «register» it into your system. Hope that helps.

Installation on a fresh Arch Linux fails with PGP key import:

:: PGP keys need importing:
 -> BD84DE71F493DF6814B0167254EDC91609BC9183, required by: mkinitcpio-archlogo
:: Import? [Y/n] 
:: Importing keys with gpg...
gpg: keyserver receive failed: Server indicated a failure
 -> problem importing keys

Please advise how to fix this issue.

Copied verbatim from

Post-installation instructions

After installing this package you will need to edit your /etc/mkinitcpio.conf file in order to get the logo to show on boot. In your mkinitcpio.conf file you will have a line that will look like the following (it may have a few differences): HOOKS=(base udev autodetect modconf block filesystems keyboard fsck)

You will need to add archlogo to somewhere in this list. e.g. HOOKS=(base udev archlogo autodetect modconf block filesystems keyboard fsck)

After doing this you will need to rebuild your initial ramdisk. This can be done by running (as root user): mkinitcpio -p linux

NOTE: linux is the name of the kernel. You may need to change this if you are using a custom kernel

i install package and manually add hook after systemd hook?

With maintainers key you reference the key for official package signing? The key is used for that exclusively.

I'm confused. The key in the PKGBUILD doesn't match the maintainers key, as far as I can see.

I don't know if this is a problem specific to me, but when I did today's update, the installation failed due to a pgp key check failure (sorry I've lost the terminal output).

I manually added the key from the PKGBUILD (the details matched @eworm's details) and then it installed with no errors.

This should work with systemd and script based initramfs, no? What issues do you see with non-systemd-initramfs?

msx commented on 2014-08-24 09:37 (UTC)

So sad it requires the systemd hook as at this time it still breaks resume hook -- for resuming from hibernation. Thanks anyways, I still use it on my desktop box :)
