Before running makepkg, you must do this:

gpg --keyserver --recv-keys D1483FA6C3C07136

See below for details.

Improvement Suggestion: Make use of the XDG Base Directories.

Make it unpack to "${XDG_DATA_HOME}/tor-browser-en" instead of "~/.tor-browser-en". (if "${XDG_DATA_HOME}" is not set, it should default to "~/.local/share")
Maybe you could even use "${XDG_CACHE_HOME}" (default to "~/.cache") instead of "${XDG_DATA_HOME}" since deleting the directory is no problem; it is created if it doesn't exist.

PS. Maybe you could even group the data for the tor-browser packages by moving the language to a sub-directory; "tor-browser/${LANG}" as opposed to "tor-browser-${LANG}".

I think you should update the "Icon" section in the .desktop file. Since you're pointing to an absolute path, people who use a custom icon theme won't get the proper icon. Changing it to: Icon=REPL_NAME should be enough.

As mentioned the gpg errors are an issue with default versions of gnupg in most linux distros, specifically a dns resolution issue. If you cannot be bothered downgrading your gnupg package then just ping the keyserver and use it's ip instead of its url.

yar: for beginners I with to add that the gpg command must be run as the same user compiling the package, not as root.

For the GPL license just copy that on your terminal: gpg --recv-keys 0x4E2C6E8793298290

@yar I got two work-around

1. As gnupg is failing to download the public key it can be done manually by this command:
curl "" -o - | gpg --import

2. Gpg key verification can be skipped by replacing a pkgbuild line which is not recommended as tor is a very crucial piece of software. The line is:
validpgpkeys=('EF6E286DDA85EA2A4BA7DE684E2C6E8793298290' 'SKIP')

Process 1 is safe, 2 is risky and totally your choice. Peace!
