I have version 0.3 working. Here is my PKGBUILD repo 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 the webkitgtk library is a legacy one and has been replaced by webkit2gtk.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:

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.

cesasol commented on 2013-08-29 20:48

Please add yelp as a depndency

Updated package.
thanks Alister.Hood!

Alister.Hood commented on 2013-07-22 02:50

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

chelqo commented on 2013-02-15 03:48

I was without connection a few days, but I'm back.
Updated package.
For all guys, thanks for your contributions!
