There are no working rxvt in aur and this one was easiest one to fix it :) and im using it now so no issues. Thanks for quick update :)

Updated to 9.30. I originally wanted to wait until the mainline repo updates to 9.30, but apparently, people really want this update. Please tell me if there are any problems with the package.

libptytty needed ( there is one in AUR ) and just need to change version to 9.30 then "makepkg -g -f -p PKGBUILD" rewrite PKGBUILD sha256sums again and all be good.Top Tip: only top line will be need to change in sha256sum for those who are interested to get this package. sha256sums top line: fe1c93d12f385876457a989fc3ae05c0915d2692efc59289d0f70fabe5b44d2d

Sorry for the delay in updating, it should now work again. I didn't have to update this package since 2016 ;)

Package does not build because version 9.22 is not there anymore... To compile package:

  1. download AUR snapshot link

  2. unpack it with tar: tar xzf rxvt-unicode-256xresources.tar.gz

  3. change directory cd rxvt-unicode-256xresources

  4. Change PKGBUILD file:

    4a. version to 9.26 sed -i 's/pkgver=9.22/pkgver=9.26/g' PKGBUILD

    4b. change corresponding source package sha sum sed -i 's/e94628e9bcfa0adb1115d83649f898d6edb4baced44f5d5b769c2eeb8b95addd/643116b9a25d29ad29f4890131796d42e6d2d21312282a613ef66c80c5b8c98b/g' PKGBUILD

  5. to install run makepkg -si PKGBUILD

Note: Current version on upstream is 9.26 and it has sha sum equal to 643116b9a25d29ad29f4890131796d42e6d2d21312282a613ef66c80c5b8c98b. It can be calculated with sha256sum <FILE>.

This package does not build anymore because appearently the upstream URL has gone:

Recent updates on perl packages needs to rebuild this package as follows: yay -S rxvt-unicode-256xresources --rebuildtree.

This should fix any not found error that may comes with perl updates.

@sabarasaba Can you post your error? I can't reproduce it (works on my machine).

sabarasaba commented on 2018-05-04 14:14 (UTC)

@lutobler Was the libnsl dependency meant to be fixed with 9.22-3 ? I've been trying to install that one but still getting the same error :'(

lutobler commented on 2018-05-02 11:42 (UTC)

@chrko Thank you, fixed it.

chrko commented on 2018-05-01 20:56 (UTC) (edited on 2018-05-01 20:56 (UTC) by chrko)

The dependency libnsl is missing.

kpbochenek commented on 2016-01-24 19:07 (UTC)

rxvt-unicode was released as 9.22 and previous version was removed from server. @jkoer can you bump dependency and fix md5sum?

lutobler commented on 2015-09-18 09:49 (UTC)

Not my work, I just took the (orphaned) aur3 package and put it up here. No idea who the made the patches ... Though i can't seem to replicate your error, the PKGBUILD is basically the same as the one in the community repo, except it doesn't provide it's own terminfo package

kozaki commented on 2015-09-15 13:08 (UTC)

Thanks for the work jkoer! Install fails for a while in this location. If I understood it allright, rxvt-unicode-256xresources depends on rxvt-unicode-terminfo wihch wants to install '/usr/share/terminfo/r/{rxvt-unicode,rxvt-unicode-256color}', which are owned by rxvt-unicode-256xresources ~:-}
