@infomaniac50 I'm sorry I actually did this update a long time ago but apparently forgot to push. I have updated the package now. Note that this is not a VCS package though so I'm using the release tarball not git. Since you were using the tag anyway that wasn't accomplishing anything other than killing the checksum and making the version complex.

I have version 0.3 working. Here is my PKGBUILD repo https://github.com/infomaniac50/aur-typecatcher. This PKGBUILD clones the source directly from Github.

I forgot to mention that even though it clones from Github my PKGBUILD still uses the 0.3 tag.

Version 0.3 is out - and development moved to github so shouldn't the download link be from there? the webkitgtk library is a legacy one and has been replaced by webkit2gtk.

Changing to version 0.3 and webkit2gtk in PKGBUILD made this package work wonderfully at least on my box.

Updated PKGBUILD here: https://pastebin.com/raw/Yg5XJhVW

Same error like @chelqo here.

I've been denying this package for weeks, but I can not get it to work on Arch.

These are the errors that appear to me when running it, I will thank you for guidance and / or corrections:

Dependecy on python2-gobject and webkitgtk3 needs to be added for this package to work

chelqo commented on 2013-08-30 20:13

Cesasol is right, plus yelp depends on webkitgtk2, which is also a dependence on yelp.
PKGBUILD updated with corrected dependencies.
Regards!

cesasol commented on 2013-08-29 20:48

Please add yelp as a depndency

Updated package.
thanks Alister.Hood!

1. The beta source package is no longer available because the final release is out.
2. It should depend on python2-gobject
