Fails to build, please add dos2unix to makedepends.

Fixed in pkgver 3.

Just to let you know, the 0.9 version of textext has a bug and tries to write its log file tu /usr/share/inkscape/extnsions, which obviously does not work. A fix is submitted upstream, but not yet merged.

To get a functioning textext you can checkout the textext-git package on the aur and change the source url to the fixed branch on my fork on github. I will post detailed instructions there.

I don't like doing it, but I adopted the package, fixed the source array and bumped the pkgrel. It should build fine now.

The solution provided by swedishhat made the package install, but textext generated errors when run from inside Inkscape. Downgraded to previous version.

In the PKGBUILD file, line 14 says


This fails when updating since the archive is suffixed with .tar.gz, not .tgz.

Changing that line to


and running makepkg --install manually solved the issue

Adjusted source url to the github repo.

Thanks for pointing that out. Unfortunately github seems to be down, so I cannot check.

It appears the project (or the active fork) was moved from Bitbucket to GitHub in January 2018. It would be great to have the source URL updated (and note the bump to 0.7.1):

pygtk seems to be a dependency of this package as well.
