Minor update made to the pkgbuild, forgot to add git as a makedepends since my system already has git installed and I took it for granted (although... How did you get the PKGBUILD file if you don't have git already installed?). Nonetheless it's done added.

Adopted the package and updated the pkgbuild to use Topal 82. Also switched source to git since apparently there's no tarball for it anymore.

Just a note to possible maintainers: the current release of Topal is 82 (released on 27th of August 2022) and the home page is here:

topal is now available for adoption.

I've created a new PKGBUILD that updates this to version 80 and gets the package from the author's new website.

I have been having issues using topal successfully, but at least it builds and runs now. It does seem to depend on procmail and run-mailcap or metamail, especially for multipart messages.

Before installing procmail or run-mailcap, I was sort of able to get it to decrypt messages, but the interface is kind of sloppy and the output was a total mess. It also threw errors that it requested I report to the author, but those were just because procmail was missing (it really does seem to be a hard dependency, should probably be added to the PKGBUILD).

Anyway, if anyone has any advice on how to use topal better, I'd love to hear it. In the meantime, I've gone back to Thunderbird where decryption "just works"!

That source link no longer works, however I was able to get a copy from the Internet Archive at
