I got a fatal error on 0.9.1-4, suggesting that pdf2svg is not optional but mandatory:

[TexText][CRITICAL]: pdf2svg is NOT found in PATH

Nothing from my side against installing it, though.

Thanks for the package!

The release 0.10.0 is out:

https://github.com/textext/textext/releases

I tested it and it seems to work fine.

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

source=("$pkgname-$pkgver.tar.gz::https://github.com/textext/textext/releases/download/$pkgver/${_pkgname}-Linux-$pkgver.tgz")

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

Changing that line to

source=("$pkgname-$pkgver.tar.gz::https://github.com/textext/textext/releases/download/$pkgver/${_pkgname}-Linux-$pkgver.tar.gz")

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.
