@francoism90 Feature requests can be made on the pkgbrowser forum thread: (and please provide more details your use-case). Bug reports (and feature requests) can be made on the issue tracker: AUR comments should only ever be about packaging issues.

@kachelaqa Where should I submit feature requests? :)

It would be great (maybe it's possible already?) to get a direct download (wget/curl)/git clone link, so I can copy/paste it in a terminal, e.g.:

$ wget

$ git clone


Thanks for creating this tool btw.!

Thanks! It works again after rebuilding!

@indianahorst It's not a dependency - you need to rebuild.

Any dependency seems to be missing:

$ pkgbrowser 
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/pkgbrowser/", line 9, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/pkgbrowser/pkgbrowser/", line 112, in run
  File "/usr/lib/pkgbrowser/pkgbrowser/", line 56, in window
    from pkgbrowser.window import Window
  File "/usr/lib/pkgbrowser/pkgbrowser/", line 18, in <module>
    from pkgbrowser.backend import (
  File "/usr/lib/pkgbrowser/pkgbrowser/", line 13, in <module>
    from pkgbrowser import alpm, conf, utils
ImportError: cannot import name 'alpm' from 'pkgbrowser' (/usr/lib/pkgbrowser/pkgbrowser/

Could you please add the required dependency?

I've just built the package with the python dependency changed to 'python<3.8'. Building and running without issues so far.

"installing python (3.7.0-3) breaks dependency 'python<3.7' required by pkgbrowser"
Can you please check into it/update, etc.?

@keepitsimpleengr: uninstall pkgbrowser, update pacman, install pkgbrowser again.

pkgbrowser: installing pacman (5.1.0-1) breaks dependency 'pacman<5.1'

so "pacman<5.2 (pacman-buildenv_ext-git, pacman-git)" seems in error

@siliconmeadow - thank you

confirmed, adding below line: depends=('pacman>=4.1' 'pacman<5.1' 'python>=3.2' 'python<3.7' 'python-pyqt5')
