Yes. And still doesn't work. If only I have problem with pkgbrowser I will solve it. But if it's bug I will wait on newer version.

Suddenly doesn't work. Only I have this problem?? I don't know what broke it. Downgrade pacman or linux doesn't work.

the problem is caused by an incompatibility introduced by version 4.9.4 of the python2-pyqt package.
this changed the name of the 'pyuic4' command to 'python2-pyuic4', which can break pkgbrowser's build process.
the simplest temporary fix for this issue is to create a 'pyuic4' symlink for 'python2-pyuic4'.
a bugfix release of pkgbrowser should be available within the next few days which provides a more permanent solution.

I think you have to add dependence also on pyqt; without it I got an error such as "pyuic4: command not found" during the build, but as soon as I installed pyqt everything went fine.

pacman 4.x is official now:

error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: Starting full system upgrade... ...
:: pkgbrowser: requires pacman<4

@scjet: Thanks for your comments.
The short answer is: no - pkgbrowser is a purely informational search utility.
For a longer answer (and a possible solution), see:

This is a great pkg, -Thanks :)
Any chance, in the near future, a means to Install/Remove/Upgrade/... packages, using this GUI would be implemented ???
(even if that meant, a seperate terminal popped-up, to query the "user", just like pacman already does).
Again, thx, keep up the good work.
