The 'base-devel' group is an implicit dependency when building a package from a PKGBUILD. It would be wise to read the rest of the AUR page, too.

I had that error on a pretty fresh manjaro installation :

=========== CMake Error: CMake was unable to find a build program corresponding to "Unix Makefiles". CMAKE_MAKE_PROGRAM is not set. You probably need to select a different build tool. CMake Error: CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER not set, after EnableLanguage CMake Error: CMAKE_C_COMPILER not set, after EnableLanguage ===========

I've added 'make' to makedepends in PKGBUILD and the installation went great.

That warning is caused by asserts that embed the source-file names. Some of these snuck past all the release/ndebug flags for some reason and i'll look into it.

If you are redistributing the package to others and fear leaking that information then you might want to build the package in a clean chroot. The scripts (e.g. extra-x86_64-build) from the devtools package make this trivial.

If you're building this for personal use then these are harmless.

During the makepkg stage, I received the following warning:

==> WARNING: Package contains reference to $srcdir usr/bin/pwsafe

This could be benign, but it makes me uncomfortable to see warnings like this while installing a password manager.

thanks @intartso the gpg key was what I needed!

[solved] libxerces-c was recently updated to version 3.2. passwordsafe no longer builds since then. (complains about undefined symbols)

Is there a way to get it to build against the newer lib? Thanks!

Edit: never mind, was missing a symlink from to After rebuilding everything works now.

Forget it, there was an issue with my dataabase, it only opened read/only - close inside passwordsafe and reopen solved it

xerces-x was updated 20171026, so I had to rebuild passwordsafe.

I get a weird "warning" Window after Login w/o content, only an exclamation mark

It looks that version 1.03BETA now depends on qrencode library to build.

webkitgtk2 took forever to compile for me. So I used downgrade:
yaourt -S downgrade
/usr/bin/downgrade webkitgtk2
# Select 1)
# Add to IgnrList

Then after trying to install passwordsafe again it said that the public key is unknown. So I added it via:
gpg --recv-keys B131423D7F2F1BB9

After that installing passwordsafe worked.
