Just checked and there is also a newer stable at

There are newer versions at, such as

Changes to PKGBUILD:
- pkgver=20170907
- sha256sums_x86_64=('49ad1a89331c5675f4fac6f6288208801a94bba50cc8b22ae8b03a2f7dc9d1e5')

If you are on an i686, you'll have to adapt the sha256sums_i686 line, too.

I've adopted the package and tweaked the PKGBUILD very slightly.

I’ve just disowned this package because I won’t be using Arch Linux as my primary OS any more. At present 10r7 is still the current release.

@oxplot: thanks, fixed. Silly of me to miss that location. That’s what comes of being unable to use mksrcinfo. And probably doing it after midnight helps.

@ChrisMorgan you forgot to update the source URLs in .SRCINFO — they still point to 10r4

@lilydjwg: done in the 10r4 upgrade.

I suggest that you override princexml's bundled certificates with system's one like this:

ln -sf ../../../etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt "${pkgdir}"/opt/prince/etc/curl-ca-bundle.crt

It's much easier for users who want to modify their trusts. Also the system's one is expected to be more up-to-date.

I’ve taken this orphaned package over and updated it from 9.0r5 to 10r2.

The /usr/bin/prince produced is badly broken, making a mess of any situations where there are spaces (e.g. filenames with spaces, --pdf-title="multiple words", &c.). `$*` is not sufficient; `"$@"` is what should be written. While you’re doing that, you might as well make it more efficient by tacking `exec` on to the start.

< echo "/opt/prince/bin/prince \$*" >> $pkgdir/usr/bin/prince
> echo "exec /opt/prince/bin/prince \"\$@\"" >> $pkgdir/usr/bin/prince
